TOOLS FOR HANGING PICTURE FRAMES
SUPPLIES FOR HANGING A PICTURE FRAMES
- Painters or masking tape
- Hanging nails
Here is a video of the tutorial and the written steps to follow.
Step 1) I grabbed some painters tape and ripped a piece long enough to extend into the middle of each sawtooth hanger. Trim the edges with scissors if needed. On the wall where I planned to hang the picture I marked center as well as a line about where I wanted the top of the frame to be. I think you need Lasik to see that…sorry.Then I removed the piece of painters tape that I had applied to the back of the frame and folded it in half with the non stick sides facing to create a crease. This crease is what I used to line up the center of the frame.
Step 2) I attached the tape to the wall making sure the fold of the tape lined up with my pencil mark for center on the wall. Then using a laser level I marked with a pencil at each end of the tape where my nails would be. Don’t worry if the tape isn’t level, this is what the level/laser level is for. Next I hammered in the nails, hung the picture and again checked for level. Then I removed the tape once I was happy with the placement. Don’t you love learning things that make like easier?
