RepairRehang Photo Board


The bracket holding this board up was a little weak and they wanted it lowered a bit. I was able to get it lowered, secured, and repainted, and no sign of the old holes.



Tools Used:

  • Drill
  • Drill Bit
  • Drywall Knife
  • Marker
  • Level

Materials Used:

  • Paint
  • Joint Compound
  • Painters Tape
  • Screw with Molly Anchor



  1. Take down the existing board and remove the screws.
  2. Sand down the area so that it is flat and fill holes with joint compound and allow the compound to dry.
  3. I used a piece of painter’s tape to trace where the mounting holes on the board were and applied it to the wall.
  4. Once I made sure it was level and centered, I drilled where I marked the holes on the tape.
  5. I then installed the anchors and screws leaving them sticking just out of the wall so they could hook into the board.
  6. I painted over the new patch work and hung the photo board back up in its new place.
