Original Post

There are a lot of photographs and other art pieces that I love here on etsy but I live in an attic and most of my walls are angled so not much room to hang anything.

Any suggestions on how to hang framed pieces on an angle so that it doesn't all come crashing down?

I think that command strips makes a frame hanging strip that's velcro? Maybe? So maybe you could put a strip on all four sides of the frame? I would think that would work as long as your frame isn't super heavy.

I looked it up for you: www.command.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/NACommand/Command/Products/Prod...

yep. command strips, I use them on all of my walls, and if you use enough, I'd guess they would hold anything at any angle :)

I would (if it were me anyhow) put nails angled upwards to hold the bottom on.. but the velcro is a good idea too.. maybe better.

thanks for the ideas, i thought about the command strips but they make me a little nervous :) don't want them letting go and getting me or scaring me to death, lol.

wonder if there are any kind of bracket-y things. Any other ideas?

you can use brackets and screw them into the wall using the appropriate bolt

Yup, mirror plates. :) They attach to the picture, then have holes to screw to your walls. Any angle will work! Ones that look like this:

Basically, it screw into the back of the frame with the 2 holes. So the round/one-hole end is sticking out. Flip it around onto the wall and you have a hole on each side flush with the wall, for screwing in.
