Framing And Hanging Tips - Keeping Your Pictures Straight


Most people can hang one picture straight, at least temporarily, right?  Put the wire on the hook and you’re good.  But then a door closes, or a wind blows, or a ball gets bounced, and the picture moves, and suddenly your nice straight picture isn’t so straight anymore.

The easiest solution--just use two hooks. If you only use one hook, it makes a single pivot point, and gravity and Murphy’s law will make sure that, if it can move, eventually it will.
With a single picture, this really isn’t a big deal usually.  But if you’re in an office, say, with 20 same-size pictures on a wall, even one picture askew can drive you nuts.  Two hooks, spaced one-half to two-thirds of the width of the picture apart, will usually take care of this.

A level is always a big help, and keep in mind that walls, ceilings and floors are never truly completely level, flat or square.


...much more to come...
