Picture Perfect Walls

Posted on December 9, 2011

Raise your hands if behind your pictures hanging on the wall, there are at least two to three nail holes lurking. I would be amiss not to admit that I am guilty of this picture hanging faux pas. 

So, I did a little research to minimizes these holes to one. The best instructions I found are here, here and here. More specifically, I find that grouping like and non like pictures are a fun way to sprue up that blank wall space. 

If the idea of grouping images is appealing, blow is an instructional break down of how to do it:

1. Trace pictures onto brown kraft paper and cut out. Label each of the papers with a description of the picture or a corresponding number.

2. Using blue painter’s tape (which won’t pull up wall paint), tape the papers to the wall. Experiment with arrangements until you have one you like.

3. Install picture-hanging hardware directly through the paper. Pull paper away and hang pictures.

Below are a few images showing how to do differnt groupings from Pinterest. Not only do I like the groupings, I love the rooms too.

Do you have a grouping of pictures in your home? I’d love if you shared them with me on my Facebook page!
