When hanging a gallery – number your frames

Gallery wall
Here’s a simple tip that will save you time and headaches when hanging a gallery. When hanging a grouping of identical frames, number the back of the frames from 1 to 9 (or however many you’re putting up) starting with the one on the right, top row, second row right to left, and bottom row right to left. This will avoid any confusion if you decide to switch out the art but want to rehang all the frames in the same spot.

You’ll find the step-by-step instructions on how I created this gallery of 9 frames at this link. With the right tools on hand, I completely transformed a blank wall into a very lively space bringing back many happy memories.
