Hanging Picture Frames Level — One Simple Trick

To hang a picture frame perfectly level on your wall, all you’ll need is the frame in question, some painter’s tape, and a marker. First, lay the frame down on a flat surface. Take a length of painter’s tape about equal to the width of the frame and stick it to the back either on top of or just under where the nails will need to go. Then, use your marker to put dots where the nails will be.

Remove the painter’s tape from the frame and place it on the wall. At this point, you can use a level to make sure that the tape is completely level. Hammer your nails into the wall on the dots, remove the tape, then hang your picture!
