If you’re new here, you should check out another gallery wall I did for my son’s room. And here is an eclectic gallery wall I put up in out entryway nook.

Back to business! This time I wanted to spruce up the wall under my staircase. I wanted a good mix of art and other decor. I picked out a mirror with an aged finish and thrifted some of the frames and printed some prints.

Now here’s the most interesting part about this artwork installation. I did not have to screw anything into the wall or locate a stud or even use a measuring tape! That’s right folks, this new product I’m about to share with you has changed the way I hang artwork!

The 3M Claw Drywall Picture Hangers are the ultimate trusted solution for hanging heavy home decor items or heavy artwork. This newest innovation allows you to hang heavy pieces, up to 45lbs without using a stud or an anchor! The engineered hardened steel claws lock securely into the drywall with the push of your thumbs and you’re done! No tools needed other than the optional spot marker which is provided in the kit. The 3M CLAW Drywall Picture Hangers are available in three different weight capacities: 15lb, 25lb, and 45lb. For my gallery wall, I mostly used the 15lb hangers as well as the 45lb hanger for my mirror.

HOW TO USE THE SPOT MARKER

The Spot Marker allows you to mark the exact position of where the the 3M Claw Drywall Picture Hanger will go into the wall. Simply peel the adhesive liner off the Spot Marker and attach to the hanging hardware on your frame or mirror. Remove adhesive liner on the side that goes onto the wall. Position the frame where you want it on the wall, press, and pull back. The Spot Marker is now attached onto the wall and you can mark a dot underneath to indicate where your 3M CLAW Drywall Picture Hanger will go.

Now that you’ve marked your hardware position using the Spot Marker, take the 3M Claw Drywall Picture Hanger and align it with the dot. Simply push into the drywall until flush with the wall. Hang artwork and repeat with all other pieces! I like the visually see the positioning of frames and mirrors by laying everything on the floor first and then taking a picture. For an organic, free flowing gallery wall I do not take measurements or use precise spacing between pieces. This method of eye-balling artwork placement gives the gallery wall a looser, less structured look which is what I was aiming for.

HANGING HEAVY OBJECTS

The mirror I had purchased for this wall was roughly 35lbs and I was nervous about drilling into a stud or making a hole for an anchor. Since this wall is very centrally located in our home, and the fact that I keep moving things around, I did not want to deal with covering up a large hole. This is where the 3M CLAW Drywall Picture Hanger shines! With the 45lb version I was able to, single-handedly, hang the heavy mirror without having to worry about studs or anchors or any other tools. Friends, this right here is a total game-changer! Think of all the times you want to hang something heavy in a rental home even, the 3M CLAW Drywall Picture Hanger makes the tiniest little holes in the wall and guaranteed up to 45lb of trusted strength!

I am so happy with how this modern gallery wall turned out and it was a breeze to put up with the 3M CLAW Heavyweight Hanging Solution. I highly recommend you try it out for your next home decor project and let me know what you think!
