Save yourself from patching up your walls by getting it right the first time.
Using painter’s tape is one of the easiest ways to determine proper distance between two nails when hanging your frame. Again, not much is needed for this method, just some bright-colored painter’s tape, and a black marker. Here’s how you do it…
- Rip a length of tape long enough to span past the hooks on the back of your frame.
- Place the piece of tape across the back of your frame, and mark two dots—one in the center of each bracket or hook.
- Remove the tape from your frame, and place it on the wall where you want your picture to hang. The dots indicate where you will insert the nails.
- Make sure your tape is straight and level, then insert your nails and hang your art.
