Learn the easiest way to hang wall art and get it right every time using a laser level and laser measurer.
Hanging anything on the walls can sometimes be a royal pain. Between trying to make sure everything is level, even, centered, etc., the task can be daunting. I’m partnering with The Home Depot today to show you the easiest way to hang wall art using the Bosch 135ft Laser Measurer and the Bosch Self-Leveling Crossline Laser Level.

You may remember when I first shared the tutorial for this football play wall art in my youngest son’s bedroom. I used my favorite method of hanging photos on the wall by buying some Command Picture Hanging Strips. It worked for well over a year, but one by one they came down. It was time for a permanent option.
I started with the Bosch 135ft laser measurer. I wanted to center everything over the bed, which required a bit of measuring. I don’t know if you’ve ever tried to measure something midway up the wall with a tape measure, but if you’re by yourself it is next to impossible. The tape measure suddenly becomes like spaghetti and it leads to a lot of frustration.
The Bosch 135ft laser measurer makes it so easy! You can measure from the front, middle, or back of the device and it has a level built in so you know that your measurements will be truly accurate. The bright and clear display is easy to read, and you can quickly determine the area and volume of a room all by yourself.
Once I determined the length of the bed (7′), I then was able to find the center point on the wall and mark it.
With my center point marked, I set up the Bosch Center Line Laser Level to help me mark out the placement of the wall art.
The Bosch Center Line Laser Level has bright, easy to see laser lines, which are self leveling and can span to 50 feet. It comes with a mount that can clip onto things but is also magnetic, or you can use it with your camera tripod.
With the center line set, I grabbed my standard tape measure to mark the placement for all of the wall anchors. I also set the level at the height I wanted the bottom of the wall art to set.
With the faux brick paneling in place, it would be very difficult to find a stud, so I used my favorite drywall anchor screws and drove them into the wall. These work with or without a stud, which is why I love them so much.
Using the Bosch Laser Measurer and the Bosch Center Line Laser Level made this task so much easier and less complicated. I only wish I had these tools sooner. I probably wouldn’t have waited months to hang these back on the wall. I’m definitely going to be using them for some other upcoming projects.
