Hanging a cluster of frames.

I learned this in an introductory interior design course a few years ago. With this method, gravity is your friend. No more eying frame locations and punching unnecessary holes in the walls.

1. Identify the space on the wall you'd like to fill with the frames. Cut a piece of butcher paper, or other rolled paper (I used the reverse side of Christmas wrap) to the size of the wall space. Put the paper on a hard surface.

2. Arrange your frames to your liking, using a ruler for precise alignment and spacing, or if you're more of a free spirit like me, just scoot things around until you're pleased.

3. Trace around the frames with a pen.

4. Mark, behind each frame, the hole for a nail.

5. Set the frames aside.

6. Tape the paper to your chosen wall, using a measuring tape to assure that it's level.

7. Hammer a nail into each marking, right through the paper. Then rip the paper down.

8. Hang your frames!

Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

The city of Danbury's metro options into NYC, give anyone in New Milford, Newtown, Bethel, New Fairfield and Sherman options for travelling south. The estimate you receive will be based on the number of skips you need, what size skip you want, and how long you plan to keep it. Say we are laying out a simple home 30' x 45'; if the last dimension was forty feet instead of forty-five then the cross corner measurement would be fifty feet.
