HANGING PICTURE FRAMES TO CREATE A WALL GALLERY WITH NAILS

Step 1: FIND THE RIGHT SPACE

buy canvas prints nigeria

The first thing to do in creating a Picture Frame Wall Gallery is to choose where you want to put it.

If you don’t have any reasonable wall space; Gallery Frames can be hung around windows, around doors, above bed heads, above a reading table, around cabinets in a kitchen, etc.”

Picture Frames between walls

This eventually comes down to personal preference, but there are a few things to keep in mind:

  1. Attention Grabbing: Choose a spot that is easily accessible, well lit and can’t be ignored.
  1. Eye Level: Preferably, you need to hang your photo frames so that they are at the perfect eye level and not too high up the wall.
  1. Away From Direct Sunlight: For the best practice, be sure that your Photo frames are not be exposed to any direct sunlight.
  1. No Damp Areas: Please avoid damp or humid areas to avoid warping

Step 2: CHOOSE A GALLERY WALL STYLE

If you don’t have a particular Gallery Style in mind; make a choice from StockFrame’s Gallery Wall Style above.

It’s professional and time-saving to have an idea of what type of Wall Gallery Frame Layout you desire before even making your Picture Frame Orders.

After making your choice depending on the number of frames you want to install, move on to the next step below.

Step 3: MEASURE WALL, FRAMES AND PRE-ARRANGE ON THE FLOOR

If you don’t know your frame sizes, it’s important to measure them and write them at the back of your frame (optional).

Be as precise as possible, and make sure you measure consistently and straight from the outside edges.

NEXT, measure the wall you plan to hang your picture frames, to have an idea if the space is enough to hang, arrange and setup your wall gallery.

NEXT, make a pre-arrangement of your frame collection on the floor – to preview how your frames will look on the wall.

Feel free to move your picture frames around until you find a balanced composition and design.

“Always start in the middle, usually with the largest piece, and work out from there to keep it balanced,”

Step 4: SPACE OUT THE PICTURE FRAMES

After discovering a great frame combination, use measuring tape to give a uniform spacing in-between your picture frames (on the floor)

For example – A consistent measurement of two inches between frames, works perfect for a grid wall gallery installation etc.

We found out that 1 inch spacing is great for wall frame gallery setup, though sometimes we upgrade to 2 inches spacing in between frames if they are large frame sizes. E.g. Our Poster Frames…

Step 5: OUTLINE YOUR FRAMES ON WALL WITH A TAPE

After your frame gallery arrangement has been approved on the floor, you need to transfer the VISUALS to the wall sacrificed for hosting your Wall Gallery Frames.

By using a painter’s tape you have the flexibility to not only transfer the visual, but it’s also easy to make adjustments and remove.

Note: Use a slim size brand of painter’s tape to minimize the chance of damage when removing or rearrange it.

  • Make sure you use the exact measurements of the picture frames.
  • Make sure you make note of which spot on the wall goes with which frame size.
  • Either use of a pencil to write on the painter’s tape for reference.
  • Use a Masking Tape if you don’t have a Painters Tape.
  • Use a Ruler and/or a Spirit Level to help get straight lines and edges.

Step 6: DETERMINE WHERE TO NAIL.

To determine the perfect spot for your nails, you have to measure the distance of the hanging hook (on the back of the frame) from the top of the frame.

NEXT, measure this same distance from the top edge of your painter’s tape (with the corresponding location of each frame); make a clear pencil mark at this spot.

Repeat the process to determine the “Nailing Spot” for other picture frames.

Step 7: IT’S HAMMER Time

buy canvas prints nigeria

DON’T…

I repeat!

Don’t, hammer all your nails at once.

Hammer a nail and hang one frame at a time and hang more picture frame as you go.

That way, if you had made a mistake, you only have to redo a single nail, not an entire wall of nail holes.

…Hammer the nails firmly in, so that they stick out around 2cm from the wall and are at a slight upwards angle…

ARE YOU DONE?

Yea, 98.5%

Once you’re satisfied, you don’t have to leave the painter’s tape, lift each picture frame and remove the tapes carefully.

NOW YOU’RE DONE 101%

AFTER CREATING YOUR WALL GALLERY OF PICTURE FRAMES

  • Now take a few steps back to admire your work.
  • If you’ve done everything right, you’ll be filled with a great feeling of satisfaction when you look at it.
  • Sometimes it can be difficult to get your set of picture frames completely level just by eyeballing it.

When in doubt, make use of the Spirit Level or Bubble Level for iPhone or Android and keep your wall gallery picture frames hanging straight.
