Tuesdays Tips and Tricks - 4 Simple Steps To Picture Hanging


How about a great way to hang pictures on your walls? A way to avoid nailing and renailing your wall so you end up with several different holes and none of them are in the right spot?
My grams and I were talking the other day and I mentioned to her I was putting up new pictures in the house. My Aunt (who is a painter) shared this tip with her. Here are the steps, its really quite easy!

  1. Trace each picture frame onto paper (construction or plain printer paper works too) and cut them out.
  2. Tape the paper onto the wall where you want to put the picture. Use blue painting tape, as it won't cause your paint to peel when you remove it.
  3. Once all of the papers are up onto the wall where you want, step back and take a look. Need to rearrange? No problem, the blue tape makes it easy to peel the paper down and hang it back up again.
  4. When you are satisfied with the placement, simply hammer your nail into the wall straight through your paper then remove the paper.
Yes, its that simple and your pictures will end up perfect every time!
