in today's DIY perfect picture wall we're going to see to the secrets behind hanging pictures fast easy and in a way that over time they're not going to become crooked that's right these pictures are going to mount easy and stay straight here's what you need power drill a level wire or nail cutters measuring tape pencil dental board nails and a hammer for this project we used a two inch space make sure the picture is on the right orientation now I like to use one is 5/8 ring shank nails if you use this size nails make sure you use a five and sixty fourths drill bit for pre drilling those nail holes be sure to tuck the drill bit as far back into the drill as it can go you only want about 3/8 to 1/2 inch of the drill sticking out this way you don't accidentally drill to the front of your frames now place the nail down the hole and tap it with a hammer just until you feel that it's nice and tight I'll take those Clippers and cut the nail at a downward angle be sure to protect your eyes from any pieces that come off cutting it at this downward angle creates this nice sharp point which is great for going into drywall but be careful carefully place your picture against the wall making sure not to scratch the wall with the nails place your level on top and adjust the picture until it's level once you have it where you like it just give it a push that baby's not going anywhere since we chose two inches as our spacing between pictures I went ahead and use two inch blue masking tape work from the center out that way all I had to do is line it up and use the level now here you'll see I've already hung almost all the pictures now it's time to hang the last picture line it up give it a push remove the tape you're done voila and there it is we hope you enjoyed that DIY perfect picture wall video leave a comment below let us know if that's something you think you're going to use come back soon we'll see you next time thanks for watching

    We found great little app for the iphone called Hang-a-pic to hang pictures evenly across any space. It does all the math for you and shows you exactly where to mark your nail positions. It saved us the headache of trying to figure out where to hammer in the nails evenly for hanging pictures. Just a great time saver for this kind of thing. Not sure if there is an android version though.

    The tape idea is one I will definitely use, but my house walls are concrete, not so friendly?

    what do you do if one of the nails hits the stud behind the wall? i don't think you can push it in like that.
