So I’ve been asked quite a few times how I hang art. What’s the best way for instance to get a straight line at the bottom of a series of frames?
What I start out doing though is to figure out in what order I want things to hang. In this case with four frames I lined them up on the back rest of the sofa so I could step back and get a feeling of the distance between the frames.
I then hold the frame with the nail still back there and making sure the bottoms of the frames line up and the nail being straight I hold the nail against the wall.
I still hold on to the nail and with my other hand I remove the frame.
The best being that you got it straight. If you missed the mark and the bottoms aren’t aligned all you need to do is to measure how far off you are, remove the nail and transfer your mistake in making a new corresponding hole.
I know some of you are probably against making extra unnecessary holes in your walls and in that case it’s probably better to use a different method. I don’t mind the extra hole which won’t be visible anyway behind the frame so this works well for me.
And there they are, all four lined up pretty perfectly.
