Hanging Art in a Wallpapered Room

Posted in [Framing Tips, Tools, & Techniques] By BloggerBob

If you are planning to hang framed artwork on a wallpapered wall, here is a great idea to avoid poking holes in the wallpaper that are difficult to repair later.

To minimize damage to the wallpaper, use a straight edge to cut a small "V" in the paper where you plan to insert the nail, then gently peel the V-shaped piece of wallpaper up.  next, insert the nail within the "bare wall" opening while holding the top of the V-shaped piece of wallpaper up and out of the way.  You can hang your picture on the nail, and then if you decide to remove it at some point, take the nail out, putty the small hole, and then glue the wallpaper flap back down.
