In this series, we're going to show you how to hand large pictures, small pictures, and every size in between. We're going to show you how to use hangers and we're going to show you how to quickly and easily hang a picture just like a professional. In this clip I'm going to show you how to hang two mirrors of the same size right next to each other and how to space them properly. The first mirror we want to be about there and this height right here is 65 inches from the ground. One of the first things I'm going to have to figure out is my width of these mirrors. So I'm going to take my tape measure, I'm going to measure across - that is ten inches across. So, if we want these two to be. . . if these were to be directly side by side that would be ten inches that we would need the two nail holes to be across. Because it would be five inches on this one, and five inches on this one. But I want about a two inch gap between to two pictures. So I want that, I want the two spacers to be twelve inches apart. So I'm going to measure from the ground up. I'm going to mark the height that I want my hanger to be at. Now I'm going to take my level and I'm going to make sure that it's nice and level on the wall. I'm going to take a mark up. . . right about twelve inches. Slight, real light little line there. And then from the mark I put in there earlier, I'm going to actually measure over twelve inches and put a mark. I've got both marks there. So now I'm going to get my anchor and with this anchor I'm going to make sure that the bottom of the anchor is on my mark. I'm going to nail it in. Seeing that the bottom of the anchor is on the mark. All right, there's our first one. Now I'm going to get the second one and do the same thing. Now we're ready to hang our pictures. There's the first one. And there's the second one. And we've got two inches in-between.
