Turn your picture or mirror frame to the back side. Use a piece of blue painter's tape to mark the length between both holes. Grab the piece of blue painter's tape and using a level, place the tape evenly on the wall where you want your art work, or mirror hung. Hammer a nail into the top of both edges of the tape. If you're hanging more than one art work, or mirror, repeat!
Drive a nail through the wood just enough that you will leave a mark on the wall when pressed. Hang your mirror/picture on the nail, supporting it as needed. Put it in place on the wall and push. You'll have a little mark on your wall where the nail should go. Hammer one in and voila! You now have the perfect way to hang your picture and no measuring needed!
Tired of guessing at the location when installing picture hangers on the wall? The problem can be solved by applying tape to the frame’s hanger, and then pushing a thumbtack through the tape as shown here. Perfect Placement. Next, position the frame and push the tack into the wall to get a precise hole for mounting your picture hanger. Remove the tape and the tack, and you’ll be able to hang the frame exactly where you wanted it.
I really adore this look. I'm not sure exactly why. I think this would be a great room for listening to records and just relax. The art hanging from floor to ceiling brings a lot of interest to an otherwise boring beige wall. It reminds me of a dorm room, and I think that nostalgic aspect pulls on my heartstrings a little while I look that this room!
Use Visual Tricks to Raise The Ceiling • If your ceilings are on the low side, paint them white. Hang curtains higher than the windows to trick your eye into thinking the room is taller. Most standard curtain panels measure 84 or 96 in. allowing you to go about 3 in. above the window casing before they get too short. If you want to hang them higher you'll have to custom order. Try vertical stripes the lines elongate your walls. Lean a large mirror against a wall which can make a room seem taller
