HEAVY PICTURE TO HANG

Hello,

I recently build and painted a world atlas on wood (2 x4's) that is very large and heavy, i'm guessing about 150 lbs. I want to hang it above my couch in the living room but I don't know what I need to hang it properly and safely. I have a 4 year old daughter and small dogs that often use the couch and i'm scared it will fall and injure them if not hung properly. I need it to be safe for them to see there! Did I mention the wall is also concrete!! So i'm assuming I need special screws for this as well. NO idea what i'm doing, please help! 

Thanks :)

Hello karsynnn and welcome to the Community.


Home Depot carries several options.


He we see a french cleat that can hold 200 pounds and another that will support 300pounds.




and to screw it into the concrete wall you could use Tapcon Screws.



Enjoy your creation.
