Hanging a Metal Print
Hanging a metal print can be a stylish way to display your favorite photos or artwork on your walls, elevating your space to a whole new level. But, you might be wondering, "How on earth do I hang this masterpiece without making a mess?" Fear not! Hanging a metal print is a breeze, and we’re here to guide you through the process step by step.
Firstly, let's gather the essentials. You'll need a few items:
- • Metal Print: Obviously, the star of the show! Make sure it's clean and free from dust or fingerprints.
- • Wall Anchors and Wide-Head Screws: Depending on the weight and size of your metal print, you can opt for wide-head screws or wall anchors. These are readily available at your local hardware store.
- • Level: To ensure your print hangs perfectly straight. No crooked art on our watch!
- • Pencil: For marking where you want to place your print on the wall.
- • Measuring Tape: To get those measurements just right.
Something you may want to consider is how your metal print will display. Unlike traditional wall art, where the print lays flat against the wall, our metal prints create a "floating aesthetic". This happens because we pre-install a wood frame that is positioned discreetly at the back of the metal print. This wood frame pushes the metal print forward, creating an illusion that looks like it is hovering off the wall, adding a visually interesting sense of depth.
Now, let's dive into the steps:
Step 1: Choose the Perfect Spot
Before you grab your tools, take a moment to decide where your metal print will shine the brightest. Consider factors like lighting, visibility, and the overall aesthetic of the room.
Step 2: Measure Twice, Hang Once
Measure the width and height of your metal print. Use these measurements to find the center of the wall where you want to hang it. Mark this spot with a light pencil mark.
Step 3: Get Level
Using your level, draw a straight, horizontal line across the wall at the height where you want the center of your print. This line will serve as a guide to ensure your art hangs perfectly level.
Step 4: Hang It Up
For smaller metal prints, you may use 1-2 evenly spaced screws and hang the inner part of the wood frame on them. For larger and heavier metal prints (16x20 and up), consider using wall anchors to keep your artwork securely positioned.
Step 5: Enjoy Your New Metal Print
Step back and admire your handiwork. Use the level to confirm that your metal print is hanging perfectly straight. Adjust if necessary.
And there you have it. A stunning metal print of your favorite photo or artwork is hanging on your wall like the masterpiece it is!
Remember, the key to successfully hanging your metal print is taking your time to prepare the area and making careful measurements. Enjoy the process, and soon enough, your space will be transformed into a gallery of your own making. Happy decorating!
