This step-by-step tutorial will teach you how to properly hang a picture. In general, assess the wall material, identify the weight of your picture and gather the supplies. The following instructions are more detailed and give you a few procedures to make sure your photo is level and at the right height. Step 1: Assess the Wall Drywall, the most common surface, is also the softest and inserting a picture hook is fairly uncomplicated. However, because drywall is the softest, it is recommended that you use an electronic ‘stud finder’ to locate a vertical beam of wood in the wall and hang your picture there, using a screw instead of a nail. (If you don’t have a stud finder, you can pick one up for cheap or you can just tap around on the wall. Spaces will give an echoing sound. You’ll hear a thud when you find the stud.) If there is no stud in the space where you want your picture to be, you can still hang up your piece- just use the appropriate size picture hook. You’ll find the right hook by looking at the weight limits on its package. To provide even more support, be sure to hammer the nail at an angle. Aside from two hooks, a toggle bolt will also provide extra support for a heavier picture. A toggle bolt has ‘wings’ that slide through a hole drilled into the wall and expand after it has been pushed through. It grips the wall from the inside as it is tightened. Although plaster tends to hold fasteners better than drywall, you’ll want to drill a hole and use a wall anchor in this case. A wall anchor will give a little extra grip in supporting the frame and make sure the screw doesn’t slip out. Brick or masonry is similar to plaster with one exception. You may want to add little epoxy into the drilled hole. As soon as the epoxy dries, you can start hanging your picture. Make sure you use the right sized hook for your picture when working with brink or masonry. Once the hook contacts the epoxy and dries, it will be difficult to remove. You’ll find toggle bolts, wall anchors and epoxy at a hardware store. Step 2: Hang Your Picture After assessing the surface, it’s necessary to look at the wire which holds the picture on the hook. If the gauge of wire is too thin, it could break and ruin the picture. The heavier the frame the, thicker the gauge of wire needed. The wire should extend up into the middle of the space between the top of the frame and the screw eyes. If you can see the wire over the top of the frame, you’ve gone too high. At this point, you may want to grab another person to help. While the other person holds the frame up to the wall, you can stand back and decide at which height you want to hang your picture. Then, mark the wall lightly with a pencil at the top center of the frame. This will be your ‘marker’ line. Flipping the frame over, push the wire on the back of the picture up towards the top of the frame. Make sure you press hard to simulate the picture hanging on the wall. Now, measure the distance from the peak of the wire to the top of the frame This distance, between the wire and the frame, is called the ‘drop’. Then take the same measurement (the drop) and mark an X below your marker line on the wall. (For example, if the distance from the peak of the wire and top of the frame is 1¾, measure 1 ¾ down from the marker line.) At this marker line, you can set your picture hook. Use a level to check the alignment of your picture. To make changes to the height, you can adjust the wire.
There are many questions that need to be asked when choosing a grill. Things such as cost, ease of use, other uses besides grill¬ing, flavor and portability should be taken into account. The most important item in this list depends on what you need. This article looks in detail at the different categories and makes a judgment on which grills would be best in that group, charcoal, propane, natural gas or smokers. Cost If cost is the main factor, the grill to go for is charcoal. This grill features low mainte¬nance and inexpensive charcoal to purchase. Propane grills are the next lowest in price, with the need to occasionally fill your tank with cost effective propane. Since natural gas grills are supposed to be hooked to a home’s gas line, they are typically larger units, and more expensive. Convenience of Use The easiest grill to use is probably the natural gas grill. It is hooked to your houses natural gas line and therefore doesn’t require you to buy large propane tanks regularly. Getting a grill that has a battery powered or electric starter has made things even easier. Propane is probably the next easiest to use since there are no charcoal bri¬quettes or wood chips to bother about. While it seems that a larger grill is a better grill, remember that larger also means a larger area to clean. Added Features Natural gas or propane grills can offer additional cook spaces that a charcoal or smoker unit cannot. If you plan to cook full meals on your grill, gas burners and a warming tray are great. A rotisserie option may also be important to you depending on what you want to grill. Flavor If flavor is the most important item on your listing, a smoker or a charcoal grill should be your first priority. Smokers are meant to slow cook over time and exert a smoky flavor to meats. You can choose the type of wood to smoke that will offer you the flavor you are looking for. The only problem with a smoker is when you need a quick pork chop or hamburger, it isn’t so quick. Consider a gas grill for quicker cook meals and a smoker when you truly want to impress the neigh¬bors. Charcoal is the next best in the flavor department with no gas undertone. Gas grills can also impart a good grilled flavor, and now many gas grills have got a smoker option on them. Portability When portability is the most important requirement, propane is the way to go. Charcoal grills run a close second. Little propane tanks make it easy to take your grill camping or to a tailgate party and you aren’t left thinking where to put the smoldering coals. Charcoal can work and there are several small portable units available; just make sure you have a strategy for what to do with the used briquettes.
