"I'm writing this review because I'm quite honestly perplexed by some of the negative reviews of this wall frame set! I bought 10 of these wall frame sets from Red Envelope in 3 different size configurations and installed them all in the same hallway where they had to be just right or else you would see where they would be off and out of alignment with each other. Since you can only include 2 pictures in a review, I've included pics of 2 of the walls in our hallway...wish I could include a long shot of the hallway so you could see how perfectly balanced it looks after all 10 sets are up with all 96, yes, NINETY-SIX pictures proudly displayed!
So, to address all of these negative reviewers about the directions not being precise enough...seriously?! If my wife and I could figure out how to layout EIGHT of these sets in differing configurations in the same hallway, I'm sure you can figure out how to hang up ONE without too much trouble. Did it take a little while? YES! Was it impossible or did we end up with holes in the wall that we didn't want, or have to cut off brackets to make it work? ABSOLUTELY NOT! My recommendation is that if you can't hang it up using the instructions, why not set them aside and use a tape measure and a level and just use your common sense to check everything before you start drilling holes in your walls?!
We used to have a hallway full of various frames displaying these same pictures and every once in a while someone would stop to look at a picture...now with these new gallery frames having everything looking so organized and professional, guests routinely stop and look at several pictures that they had walked right past for years! Matter of fact, if you look at our pictures, you'll see that we bought 2 of the sets just to use the picture frames so that we could add on to the existing sets and customize our picture layouts, giving us more pictures per set! This means that we had to drill our own little holes in the frames to get our personal configuration to work. So, if we can figure all of this out, I think the average person can hang one of these sets without too much trouble.
Matter of fact, I'm leaving this review because we love these frame sets so much that I just came back to purchase 2 more sets for my office and I'm also giving a couple for Holiday gifts...so I saw that this item barely had 4 stars, so I was curious what the knock was in the reviews and was shocked that it was primarily about the installation, so I wanted to set the record straight that perhaps it was the installer and not the template!
Happy Holidays Everyone!"
