Ask Casa: Hanging Artwork on Brick Walls

Hi CasaSugar,
I was wondering if you have ever done a post about how to hang photos on an exposed brick wall. I did a search, but I may have missed it. I want to find good directions before I just start hacking away with my hammer.

Modus Vivendi

To see my suggestions,


Hi Modus Vivendi,

First things first: Step away from the hammer! While this might work on a temporary basis, it could damage the wall. And while your artwork is, I'm sure, gorgeous, it will look even better when it's displayed on a pretty, intact brick wall.

Try using spring clips that grip the bottom and top of a brick. Ask a friendly employee at your local Ace hardware store to order them for you. You might also want to try using Brick Clips. I also also love these brick wall picture hooks, since they come in different strengths depending on how heavy your art or mirror may be.

Does anyone have any other suggestions for dealing with a brick wall? Leave your advice in the comments!
