Hanging a gallery wall can lead to many marks and many holes in the wall. I've been guilty of this more times than I'd like to admit! I decided to try out a number of different methods in an attempt to avoid this and here's what I've found works best. All you will need is some painter's tape and a pen! Here's how to easily measure for a gallery wall.

Use painter's tape to mark the width and where the hook is on the frame.
Use more painter's tape to mark the length of the frame (creating a "t" shape").
Mark the exact spot where the hook is.
Choose where you want your frames on the wall. Place the "t" shape on the wall to mark exactly where you want them.
Use painter's tape along the wall to create a straight line to the next frame location. This allows you to accurately position the next frame at the same height.
I hope you try this simple method the next time you're hanging a gallery wall. It will definitely save you the extra work and frustration of fixing unnecessary holes and marks in the wall.
