Arrange Your Wall Sconces With Pictures
Highlight wall art or framed photos in your home by arranging wall sconces on either side. Arrange the pictures with wall sconces can draw more attention in your house. Here are some instructions to arrange wall sconces with pictures. First of all, measure the height of the picture with a measuring tape, divide that measurement in half and mark this location on the wall with a pencil on both sides of the picture. Then measure at least 4 inches out from each side of the picture and make two more marks with the pencil. Depending on how wide your sconces are and how much wall space you have, you may want to allow for even more space between the picture and the sconces. Write down the measurement from the top of the sconce to the hanging mechanism on the back that attaches to the wall. You need this measurement to know where to place the nail or screw. Hold the center of the sconce over the mark you made, which is at least 4 inches from the picture. Use the pencil to mark where the top of the sconce hits the wall.
Determine if a stud is located under this last mark by using a stud finder. If so, hammer a nail or drill a screw directly on the mark into the stud. If not, consider inserting a drywall anchor first. If your wall is sturdy or your wall sconces lightweight, you may not need a drywall anchor. Use the hanging mechanism on the back of each sconce to hang it on the nail or screw. Set a pillar candle on each sconce (make sure it is no larger than the base intended to hold it) and light the candles to highlight the picture.
