How to align frames on the wall perfectly / Kako savršeno poravnati okvire na zidu



How to align frames on the wall perfectly by ana@carpe_diem
 

 
Ne znam za vas, drage napravi-sama-cure,
ali ja sam hodajuća katastrofa
kad mi se u rukama nađu istovremeno i čavli i čekić.
 
Nije mi problem zabiti čavao u  zid,  nego je problem u količini rupa u zidu
koje nastaju od pustih pokušaja da slika bude na pravoj poziciji.
 
I kako sakriti te rupe IZA slike?
(Da muž ne vidi :)
 
 
I don't know about you, dear DIY girls,
but I am a walking disaster
when some nails and a hammer happen to be in my hands at the same time.
 
I don't have a problem with nailing, the real problem is an amount of holes on the wall
that magically appear when I try to find a right position for a frame.
 
And how to hide all those holes BEHIND the frame?
(So my husband can' see what happend :)





 
Nakon malo mozganja, odlučila sam napraviti shemu koju ću staviti na zid
i pomoću koje ću točno označiti gdje ću zabiti čavle.
Dakle, trebala sam točno znati ŠTO i GDJE želim objesiti na zid.
Odlučila sam tri okvira i set od četiri komada gipsanih morskih zvijezda i školjki
objesiti iznad kreveta u gostinjskim sobama.
Izmjerila sam željenu duljinu gdje ću smjestiti okvire u odnosu na krevet.
Izrezala sam dva papira u željenim dimenzijama.
(Mogu se koristiti bilo kakvi papiri, novinski, ostaci od printanja...)
 
After a little bit of brainstorming, I have decided to make a scheme to place on the wall
so I can trace nailing positions exactly.
So, I needed to figure out WHAT and WHERE I want to hang on.
I had my mind set on three frames and a set of four plaster seastars and shells
to hand above a double bed in guests' room.
I have measured the lenght of the hanging area in relation to bed.
I have cut two pieces of paper in desired dimensions.
(You can use any kind of paper you want; newspapers, printing papers...)
 
 
 



 
Na prvi papir sam razmjestila okvire i gipsane dekoracije.
 
I have arranged frames and plaster decor on the first piece of paper.
 
 




 
Sve sam okrenula naopačke, licem prema dolje.
 
I have turned everything  over, face-down.
 
 

 


 
 
Drugi papir sam položila preko svega.
 
I have layed second piece of paper on top of everything.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Napipala sam kvačice za vješanje na okvirima
i olovkom označila poziciju na papiru.
Jednostavna točkica je dovoljna.
Papir presavinite na pola i označite sredinu, sa malom strelicom, npr.
 
I have felt the hangers with my fingertips
and marked the position on the paper with pencil.
Simple dot is good enough.
Fold the paper in half and mark the exact middle, with small arrow, for exaple.
 
 




Prislonite papir na zid i zaljepite sa selotejpom.
Poravnajte papir koristeći vodenu vagu i strelicu na sredini papira.
Kad je papir savršeno ravan,
pronađite točkice, pritisnite ih olovkom da se prekopiraju na zid.
Kad se makne papir,
na zidu će ostati točne pozicije za rupice.
Navalite!


 Place the paper on the wall and secure it with some tape.
Align the paper on the wall using (spirit) level
and the little arrow on the middle of the paper.
When the paper is align perfectly,
find the dots and trace them on the wall using pencil.
When you remove the paper,
you will see exact position for nailing.
Go for it!

 
 

 
Savršeno poravnani okviri, po meni.

Perfectly aligned frames, by my standards.



 
 
 
Naravno, ovaj trik sa papirom se ne treba koristiti samo kad želite ravne linije.
Može dobro poslužiti i kad želite aranžirati veći broj okvira različitih oblika i veličina.
 
Of course, you don't have to use this trick for aligning only.
It is usable when you need to arrange quite a bit of frames in different shape and sizes.
 
 

 
 

Meni je svakako uštedio dosta vremena i živaca,
a da ne spominjem da od onda nemam niti jednu rupicu viška po zidovima
koju moram sakrivati kako znam i umijem ;)

This trick had saved me some time and nerves,
not to mention that I no longer have any extra holes on the walls
that need to be hidden somehow ;)

 
 
 
 
 
I am linking to these fabulous PARTIES
and to Coastal Charm link party, as well!
