HGTV's How to Install Picture Rail Molding
Why make holes in the wall when you can display this way?
Picture rail molding provides both visual interest and a way to display pictures without making numerous holes in the wall. To determine how much you need, decide how high you want to install the molding and measure the perimeter of the room at that height, and then add an additional 10 percent to the measurement. Note that picture rail molding is typically installed within 12 inches of the ceiling (although @artrentandlease we've installed at lower heights to fit a "look") and shouldn't be installed above any window or door casings.
