After you’ve found your perfect wrought iron welcome sign it’s time to safely mount it, so it can get started at charming all of your guests. Hanging wrought iron isn’t difficult, but to keep from accidentally damaging your home keep these few tips in mind. Remember wrought iron is heavy, so if you intend to mount your welcome sign on a wall make sure to hang your wrought iron welcome sign on a stud. Finding a stud isn’t difficult especially if you have an electronic stud finder. (You can pick one up at any hardware store for about $20.00.)
If you don’t have an electronic stud finder, and would rather not purchase one, you can first try this trick. Locate an electric outlet, since it’s more than likely mounted on a stud. Another stud will probably be about sixteen inches away. You can now measure across your wall in sixteen inch segments until you reach the approximate location where you want to hang your wrought iron welcome sign. Next use a hammer to drive a long thick nail downward diagonally into your wall. You’ll know you’ve found a stud if the wall offers a bit of resistance to your hammering. Leave just enough nail protruding out of the wall to hang your wrought iron welcome sign without drawing the eye to the nail itself. Then just hang up your wrought iron welcome sign. Make sure it’s level, and stand back to admire your careful work. And know that by hanging a wrought iron welcome sign you guarantee that your home’s first impression will be a stylish, classic, and a charming one.
