Most of the time, you can get away with a tape measure, a hammer, some small nails, and a screwdriver. My personal recommendation is to buy a security mounting hardware for artwork as well as a long metal ruler. You will need a tape measure to measure the distances between your photos and of course make sure the distances are proportional. Of course, a hammer is needed to drive the nails into the drywall. A screwdriver may be required if your frames do not come with mounting hardware already attached.In many cases, store-bought frames come with a small comb-shaped hanger that requires a small Phillips screwdriver to attach to the frame. As I mentioned a minute ago, getting a level is a good idea if you expect to post more than once.
A laser pry bar is a great tool for homeowners as it creates visible straight lines along walls so you can easily measure for framing. When you start buying one, make sure it has some sort of wall mount that won’t damage walls but will hold it securely.There are many different models out there and with a little research and comparing brands you will find a good tool that you will thank me for suggesting. Let us begin. First, determine how many photos you will take. mount and if the wall is long enough to accommodate them all. Of course, if the overall width of your framed photos from end to end is greater than the length of the wall, you will need to reconsider the number of photos to mount. Measure your wall end to end to get the full length and divide it in half.This will give you the center of the wall. Now put a mark wherever the center is. Mark with a pencil at about eye level.
Don’t worry, the pen is easy to erase.Now find out how many photos are to the left and right of this marker. Remember that you can use this tag on one of your photos or leave it blank. Hopefully all of your frames are the same size. That makes things a lot easier. Determine how much space you want between your photos and add half the frame length to that number.Try to keep the numbers complete as it makes things a lot easier. You want to use some pieces of cardboard cut to the same size as the frames to figure out what looks good on the wall. It’s easy to nail these stencils to the wall with a few pieces of tape.
