Gallery hanging system…for cheap!

We’ve worked out a infinitely customizeable gallery hanging system that’s also cheap: $1.76/ft of wall for our setup.

Nail this trim up with the curvy bit against the wall, and a small gap to the ceiling.

The whole system is based on ball chain from Ace.

These are ball chain fittings, one size over the chain gauge so they clip onto the chain anywhere.

S-hooks, nice and small.

Top of the system: see how the ball chain fitting and the s-hooks work together.

We drove tacks into the back of the stretchers since we’re lazy. You might prefer to use quite small s-hooks instead, if your items are properly set up for hanging.

Success! And a lot nicer looking than the twisted wire that a lot of people improvise these with.
