Hanging Pictures on Concrete Walls

<< < (2/2)

What is your ceiling made of?  You might trying hanging eye hooks in the ceiling and suspending the pictures from there.  If they are heavy this might work out best, then no holes in the walls.

Any tips for hanging pictures on walls that are concrete block-based? I live in a very old cottage, and the outer walls, which are concrete, bend any nail that's longer than 1/2 inch.

It's been suggested that I use a drill with a masonry bit to drill holes in the walls, and then use concrete screws to hang the pictures (all of which are too heavy for adhesive hangers). However, I've never used a drill before, and I'm afraid of what it will do to the paint layer on the walls.

Any ideas?
