AT Reader Tip: Hanging A Frame With Two Holes The Easy Way

090308-hanging.jpg Last week we brought you a tip that was tried and true when it came to hanging frames with 2 hook backs. It was simple, easy and has been used in our house for years. We were feeling pretty good about it, until we read a comment from an AT reader that was so fantastic, we just had to share it with you. Click through the jump to see their advice!When we read this comment we had the "Well duh" moment of clarity, complete with a smack on the forehead. It's so simple and even easier than using masking tape (like in our first entry).

*heatherleaf*'s advice was left in the comments as to how she tackles this situation.

"What?
Why go through all this trouble?
I just thread the holes with picture-framing wire, knock a nail in the suitable place in the wall, hang, and bam, done!
"

This suggestion of course is easier, and only requires 1 nail, 1 point of reference on your wall and the thought of using a level never even springs to mind.
If you have holes on the back of your frame (instead of hooks or loops) that are recessed into the wood, you can still use the previously mentioned tape method of course.

Thanks *heatherleaf*and to all those who had the same suggestion after the initial comment! It's a great tip!
