How to Hang Pictures on a Wall



Hanging artwork and picture frames around your home is an easy way to create a more stylish look and show your artistic side. Learn how to position pictures, find out about different mounting options and how to deal with drywall mounting. Monkey hooks are great for drywall and frames with wire backings. Transfer measurements to the wall to get the perfect picture positioning. Also, make sure to use a stud finder to help find the best spot to hang your pictures.

If you are hanging a heavy picture or mirror, you can use a mounting hanger. Use a stud finder before installing a mountain hanger, however you don't need to look for studs if you utilize wall anchors. These anchors can hold heavy items such as televisions, mirrors and artwork. If you are trying to arrange multiple picture frames, try adjustable picture hangers. These hangers adjust easily so all pictures can be leveled with each other.

Tackling plaster, brick and cement walls might be slightly intimidating at first glace, but using the right tools will make these hanging jobs much easier. Use a drill to create a small hole before nailing a mount on plaster. Also, for any masonry, use a drill bit and masonry screws. Then you just drill the hole and add in the necessary masonry hanger and screws.
