Let’s find out!
Before You Even Begin!
Large farmhouse wall decor comes in a wide range of sizes and designs. The method you use to affix them to your walls is mainly determined by the size of the piece you’re working with. Consider the composition of the walls as well. If your walls are made of concrete or brick, you may require special assistance while drilling holes. If you’re working with drywall, however, you can easily follow the steps below to get your new wall décor up in minutes.
Assemble Your Materials
The following are the tools you’ll need to hang your canvas:
- Ruler or a measuring tape
- A level
- Foam Adhesive pads to protect your wall
- Some elbow grease
You’ll also need a few extra findings like screws, saw-tooth hangers, wire, eye hooks, or other essential hanging components based on the size of your canvas frame and your preferred method.
Consider Where You Want To Put It
One of the most typical mistakes customers make is gauging where to hang a frame by eye. When dealing with framed images, a common rule is to keep them at eye level, especially if you want to hang them above your bed, sofa, or any other piece of furniture. To play it safe and give yourself a bit of breathing room, leave at least 6″ between the bottom of the canvas and the top of your furniture.
Use the following instructions to get the correct eye level:
- Identify the canvas center and measure the height of your painting; divide this measurement by half.
- Multiply the measurement from the canvas’ center to establish how high the top of the frame should sit on the wall.
- Make a mark on your wall using a pencil.
What Is the Adequate Way to Hang a Canvas Without Nails?
Adhesive picture hanging strips are an excellent solution for individuals who don’t want to ruin their walls with holes and marks. They’re easy to use and can support up to 16 pounds of weight—perfect to support a standard-sized canvas. Plus, they can be removed without causing damage to the walls like broken plaster or chipped paint, and don’t leave behind a sticky residue.
Step 1: You’ll need four pieces of picture tape for each corner of the canvas. Add more to increase the durability.
Step 2: Using a pencil, measure and mark the area where your finished piece will hang and mark where the adhesive strips will go on your canvas frame.
Step 3: Press the adhesive firmly to your canvas board and stick it to the wall, then stand back and admire your handiwork.
