Im a wannabe painter and have these random works of art lying around just waiting to be displayed - but not as centre of interest - I did say wannabe! One of those picture shelves with stacks of framed art would work so well! Am inspired to put one up on wall in my work room.

Very timely, just had my house painted and now trying to muster up the courage to hang a heap of artwork that is presently piled in corners while avoiding the shrapnel look too. Living solo, where do you start with no one to hold something in place while you check out the positioning. I think I will be relying on Velcro although it doesn't work on everything.

I'd really like the giraffe in Beano's photo.

Olldroo... Ditto for me! I drew round my pictures onto newspaper, cut them out accurately then blu-tacked them to the wall. I could then adjust the sheets till my 'pictures' were in the right place. I then measured the distance from the top of each picture to the top of the string when taut and marked that position on the sheet on the wall. I could make a bradawl indent through the paper as a marker. Hope this helps! Good luck.
