This weeks home staging tip: How to Hang Framed Artwork.
Picture hanging is not a simple task, it can be quite frustrating. Some people "eyeball" it, use lasers, rulers, tape and various other methods. By following this tip you get it right the first time.
Cut a sheet of paper to the exact size of the frame. Position the pattern on the picture's back side and pull up the picture's hanging wire taut so that you will see an inverted V. Mark the V point on the pattern and poke a hole through that marked point.
After you determine where you'll put the picture, place the pattern on the wall, and use the V point hole to make a pencil mark showing exactly where the nail should go. The picture will hang precisely where you want it.
This works well if your'e using two or more pictures that need to be hung close together or the ones that have a hook on each side.
