When I had my Interior Design business in Halifax, Nova Scotia, we would often re-hang clients’ artwork. The worst part was taking down a piece revealing a scuffed wall from the hanger swinging back and forth. So I came up with the simplest best solution for hanging pictures and artwork, forever eliminating unnecessarily scratched wall paint.
Just put up a piece of painter’s tape and hammer in your nail and hook and it acts as a buffer between the metal and your precious wall paint. Quick and easy…the way I like it. And it makes changing up artwork later way easier.
PS: Another quick hanging tip is to use white toothpaste to fill in small nail holes.
