How to Hang a Heavy Painting on Drywall

Video transcription

I'm Joshua Clement with Lighty Contractors. I'm going to show you how to hang a heavy wall painting on drywall. For this, you're going to need a couple tools. You're going to need a wall anchor and a screw and a screwdriver. Normally, you hang a picture on a stud but in this case we don't have that option because we want to hang it right here. So you're going to use the wall anchor instead of a stud. This makes sure that it grabs all of the drywall instead of just one little spot. Now that we have the location we want to hang our painting. It's very easy, just take your wall anchor, place it on the wall and give it a nice little pop and screw it into place. Make sure that it goes flush with the wall. Now, take your screw place it right in the middle and screw it in to where it sticks out a little over a quarter inch, just like that. Now, take your painting and hang it into place. And that's all there is to it. I'm Joshua Clement with Lighty Contractors. That's how you hang a heavy painting on drywall.
