Nothing makes a house a home like a beautiful arrangement of paintings and photographs. But, hanging frames can be a little challenging — especially when it comes to correct spacing. Use these seven frame-hanging hacks to upgrade your walls in no time.

Step 1: Lay your pictures on a large piece of paper.

Step 2: Trace the frames’ outlines.

Step 3: Mark the wall attachment of each frame on the outline to make sure your pictures hang evenly.

Step 4: Cut out the frames’ paper outlines and arrange them on your wall using tape.

Step 5: Use a tape measure to make sure your frames are evenly spaced.

Step 6: Attach your paper outlines to the wall using small nails. (Make sure your nails are in the wall attachment marking).

Step 7: Hang the frames over the corresponding outline and pull out the paper. After you’ve hung the frames, use a level to make sure your frames are straight.
