When it comes to hanging a new piece of art, it’s essential to get the placement just right. You may have keen eyeballs, but Art & Light Gallery’s tips for hanging art will help you get it right, every time.
First thing’s first: You’ll need the right tools. If you don’t already have a tape measure, hammer, writing utensil, and hanging hardware — head to your local hardware store, like Duncan’s Home Center(1506 Augusta St.).
Step One: Measure — the height of your art and the frame. Reduce that measurement by half. Pro Tip: Don’t forget to write it down.
Step Two: Add 60 inches (average eye-level height) to half the height of your piece of art.
Editor’s pick: As much as I love being a dog mom, I’m equally as motherly to my collection of indoor plants. Small but mighty, my collection includes a variety, all gifted or handed down from friends and family. While I don’t have a favorite “plant child,”I have to say my aloe vera + pothos plants are near and dear to my heart, as they were my grandmother’s. Next on my list is a rubber plant and English ivy (both notorious for their easy-to-keep-alive nature).
