I was thinking now maybe eye lag bolts into the wood snd hang by chain. But the hangers do not line up with studs. I’m not sure I trust the eye bolt in that soft white pine board? Might be fine though? Sign and band weighs about 70 lbs.

Wife says it’s not the band itself that bothers her. She doesn’t like it rusty looking. She said if I painted it black it would look good. Not sure I want to paint it...?

You could incorporate a shelve utilizing the black pipe brackets and horizontal hanging pipe above the sign.

There's tons of examples of this on the web.

Search for: steampunk shelf

Later . . .

something along this line with the decorative balls on end of black pipe

wouldn't be any holes in the wood as wood would be used for background of sign

when sign was removed from ceiling (wood) would still be cherry, you would have

2 holes in the ceiling too fill & you could call it a day - wife would be happy ! .. ... cool
