Hanging picture groupings: lay out on floor, flip frames over, cover entire arrangement with sheet(s) of taped together wax paper, mark picture hangers with a sharpie. Now place wax paper on wall, level it (if necessary) and pound nails right through paper and remove wax paper. Hang frames. Done.
Lay out your gallery arrangement. Flip frames over. Mark hanger/nail spot on several pieces of wax paper taped together. Flip waxed paper over, tape to wall, nail into wall where indicated. Remove waxed paper. Hang photos.
Clever!! What a great idea to hang a picture!! Put the toothpaste where you will want the nail to go. Then, press the picture to the wall where you want to hang it so that the toothpaste from the back of your frame sticks to the wall. Why didn't I think of this? Just a great idea!!
Filing cabinet makeover - used epoxy to attach cheap 8x10 frames from walmart, painted entire thing using homemade chalk paint in swiss coffee color, then added new hardware and finished it with minwax paste wax to guard against scuffs and scratches...LOVE!
Whether you're hanging three frames or 23, you'll want to create a balanced arrangement. Create visual interest by placing frames high, low, and off-center. Include different sized photos—grouping several smaller 4" x 6" and 5" x 7" images around a larger 8" x 10". You can use a printer like the HP Photosmart Plus e-All-in-One to print photos in any size. Vary the heights and shapes of the frames within an arrangement. Also consider mixing in other types of art in your grouping…
