Problem: "I can't seem to master the art of hanging pictures."
Fix it: Placing artwork on walls can be a tough job. To curb the hassle, heed these rules of thumb: Artwork tends to look best when its center is 60 inches from the floor, or when the bottom of the frame is 5 to 6 inches above a couch or mantel. Not sure where to put the nail? The Hang and Level from Under the Roof Decorating ($20, utrdecorating.com) can help. Hang your frame on the device, then hold them both against the wall, shifting to find the ideal spot. Remove the frame but keep the tool in place, and press the button on the device to make an indentation in the wall (that's where the nail goes). To keep your frame from going askew, apply paint-safe double-sided mounting tape to the corners before hanging.
