CHEAP TIPS FOR A SAFE LANDING
QUICK TIP: If you've looked at the pages of design magazines and wondered how they achieved a perfect line when hanging several frames on one wall, here's the trick: First, I place my frames on the floor in the order I want on the wall. In this project I hung ten frames in a row, so I placed them all on the floor with four inches between each. Then, I measure the distance from the first frame to the last and determine where the first and last frames will go on the wall, and place nails accordingly (by measuring from the floor up to nail placement). Once I've put the nails in place for the first and last frame, I take a piece of string and tie it tight between the two nails. The string acts as a guide for placing the remaining eight frames (note, because I have 11x14 frames spread 4" apart, I work my way down the string with my tape measure and pencil, placing a mark everywhere a nail needs to go).
