How to Hang A Painting In 3 Easy Steps


Here at Saatchi Art, we’re not only committed to helping you find art you love, we’re passionate about empowering people to #LiveWithArt joyfully and confidently. Decorating your home (or any space you occupy!) with original artwork can be wonderfully personal and is always wholly transformative. Ask any interior designer and they’ll tell you, one piece of art can make a room.

The helpful tips and DIY tutorials in our #LiveWithArt video series are aimed at making living with art fun and easy, instead of intimidating.

We’re starting with the basics. Check out the video above for three fool-proof steps to hanging a painting correctly the first time, every time. All you need is a measuring tape, picture hooks, nails, a hammer and a pencil.
