How to Hang a Picture Perfectly Level (My favorite hack!)
I wish SO MUCH that I had known about this little life hack on hanging pictures a long time ago. It would have saved me from much frustration, time and unnecessary holes in my walls.
Here’s the trick:
For a frame with two brackets on the back, place a piece of painters tape across the back. Mark on the tape exactly where the nails or screws need to go.
Take your marked tape and place it on the wall where you want your pictures to hang. Use a level to make sure your tape is perfectly straight.
If you want to hang two frames next to each other, do the same thing for the second frame and make sure the strips of tape are level with one another.
Hammer your nails in on the dots you previously marked.
Remove your tape and hang your pictures!
Perfectly level on the first try!
I’ve used this method for hanging things SO much and it’s worked every time.
