Just the other day my roommate and I discovered the most genius life hack for hanging canvas painting that is extremely inexpensive, sturdy, and avoids the big holes in the walls. This hack would be perfect for dorm rooms and apartments when you want to spice up the walls without leaving any holes, which results to an annoying and expensive repair fee when you move out. We had discovered this hack because my roommate had purchased a canvas painting to hang up in her new apartment. She had originally hung up the painting with Command Strips which are the typical product of choice for this kid of job; but the Command Strips had failed and her painting had fell off the wall due to the weight. She had asked me for her assistance in trying another method to hang it. We had though of just taking the L and drilling some holes in the wall, but my roommate though of the idea to use thumbtacks to hang it.
The first step would be to mark and measure where you would like to hang your painting. We easily did this by positioning where we wanted to hang it on the wall and then we traced the top border with a pencil.
The next step would be to insert the thumbtacks along the measured line. We used 4 thumbtacks due to the weight of the painting but use as many as you feel necessary.
The third step would be to position the painting to be aligned with the thumbtacks and hang. Make sure that the painting is even and not crooked along the wall.
Finally you are left with a beautiful painting that will add more character to any room and it leaves unnoticeable holes to help you avoid that pesky repair fee.
