Simple Solutions: How to Hang Wrought Iron Wall Art

Hanging heavy wrought iron on your wall may seem like a disaster waiting to happen, but the truth is that learning how to hang wrought iron wall art is not as difficult as it would seem. However, you do need to hang it correctly or the end result could cause damage to the wall. Once you learn how to correctly hang the wrought iron art on your wall, you can successfully decorate every room in your home with them.

The first step in hanging heavy art is to find the wall stud. A stud detector is often the best way to do this. Once you have found the stud in the wall, mark the area using a pencil. Next, you want to verify that there is a hanging mechanism in the back of the art piece. You will need to match this mechanism with a hook that will fit it.

If there is no hanging mechanism on the back of the wall art, you may have to place a piece of the wrought iron on the wall hook itself. Before doing this, however, place your art piece up against the wall to see if there are any areas that curve. This is the ideal place to hang it. If not, try to place it on the hook where it will not be seen.

Learning how to hang wrought iron wall art is simple and it will open up your home to some great decorating ideas. A wrought iron rooster hanging in the kitchen can quickly transform the atmosphere to one that is whimsical. Wrought iron flowers on a bathroom wall can create a fantastic look and add color to an otherwise drab space. It is all a matter of using your imagination and understanding that wrought iron makes for a great piece of artwork.
