  • They have cute little hooks you can buy that don't damage paint or make wholes. I think 3m makes them

  • Yep... make a template by taping a bunch of brown paper bags together and lay them out on the floor. Arrange the pictures on the paper how you want them to took. Trace the frames and where the nails should go. Tape it to the wall and put your nails up, remove the paper and hang the pictures. Your only other alternative is to use the 3M picture mounts which attach to the frames, but you will still need a template, like the one mentioned! :)

  • I used to tape the back of pictures to poster board of different colors and use the sticky stuff that doesn't peel paint to put the poster board up. That way I could put groups of pictures together in interesting way and have a splash of color in the house.

  • Ya know....it might just be easier and cheaper to have a bunch of holes....you can buy this special wall putty pretty cheap to fill the holes before you repaint.

    I'm going to buy 2 ledges and just have framed photos leaning up against the wall on the ledges. That way I can easily update them as time goes on.
