Thanks

We don't have a photo wall, but we find these thingys the best to hang frames/pictures on walls:



The tend to balance the weight of the item evenly and rarely fall off or go wonky or anything!

Thanks for the replies.  We were thinking of using the same hooks but wanted to know if anyone else had used something different.  

A friend had used double sided velcro.

I have used the 3M picture hanging strips (like Velcro but reusable) when we were renting and they worked really well.

Now we have purchased a house I am looking at installing these

I think I like the idea of a ledge so I can mix different frames (i have some crystal/glass ones as well as some heavy large timber ones) and even add little trinkets or kids artwork.

I just need to decide on which wall to turn into my family gallery.

We used the 3M strips as well like velcro, we have a double brick house so am over drilling holes everywhere, and these work great and so far when I did pull them off no paint was removed.
