Before You Get Started

For an easier way to hang your art, use Bobby’s foolproof method. Instead of using nails, simply apply command strips to the back of the artwork. Apply 4 strips to each side and press firmly to make sure your artwork is secure (they will hold artwork up to 16 lbs). You won’t damage your walls, and it’s way easier than a hammer and nails.


Before hanging your gallery wall, arrange all your artwork on the floor. This will help you to see all the pieces together, balance the art and make any adjustments prior to installing.
