While we’re talking about hanging photos, I thought I should share my little trick to hanging photos just right. It’s so simple you are going to wish you had thought of it years before! Most of the hardware on the back of your frames is metal. If you’re hanging a frame with a picture bracket on the back, you’re all set, however, if like me, you are using a triangle bracket, make sure the tip of the bracket is facing up before positioning it on the wall.
Place the frame where you want it, doing the ‘little to the left, little to the right’ dance.
Once you have the frame where you want it, push the hardware up against the wall, and wiggle the frame back and forth. The metal from the hardware will make a small mark on your wall, taking the guess work out of how far down to place the nail.
From there, simply drive in your nail, and hang your perfectly placed frame!
