We saw this idea yesterday when looking online for a alternative way to hang artwork--they're called picture nail covers. Check out how to use these beauties plus other options for hanging your artwork after the jump.
The online seller of these picture nails says that picture nails were popular a century ago and are making a comeback. We were worried that we could only use them if we had picture rail moldings but after research we found out that you can use picture nails anywhere. Basically, your screw or nail is inserted into the wall and then the decorative cover is placed on the head of the screw or nail. We love the fact that you can change the decorative cover on a whim.
Picture Nail Covers are just the tip of the iceberg on ways to hang your art. We've uncovered numerous ways to display your treasures here on Apartment Therapy. Here are a few of our favorite posts on hanging pictures (with pics from our home).
