Art wall how-to July 12, 2011 by blackband Filed Under: Blackband Blog We LOVE art arrangements…. HOWEVER, the hanging and arranging can be a BIT intimidating. Well, don’t get frustrated! The book by David Matheson called “Photos” gives a great how-to, to make sure your art is lined up well, and the photos are evenly spaced; STEP ONE: Trace paper templates the size of each frame. STEP TWO: Use painter’s tape and the templates to experiment with different arrangements on the wall. Try to keep the same distance between frames STEP THREE: To place the picture hooks, measure and mark X’s on the paper templates. Hammer nails through the picture hooks (and the paper), then rip away the paper. STEP FOUR: Hang it. Love it. You’re done! Now, if this still isn’t your thing, placing art and photos on a nice long shelf looks great too! Happy Hanging!
