The first thing anyone with cement walls should do is to visit their local hardware store. There, you can speak to design experts about the tools you'll need for your art-hanging project. Drill bits, a drill, anchors, and screws are a must. You'll also want a laser level.
The next step is to figure out how much your art weighs. The heavier it is, the larger the anchor you'll need, and the more screws you'll want to use to secure it in place.
Before you start laying out your art, it's important to wash any dirt or dust away from the wall's surface (antibacterial wipes or basic soap and water will do the trick). Give the surface time to dry before you get down to business.
Once your wall is dry, figure out where you want to hang the art. Measure it and ensure it will sit level on your wall. With a pencil, mark where you'll want to drill your holes.
Once you know where you want to place your screws, grab your drill, drill bits, and an anchor. Drill a hole into the wall; once the hole is finished, grab your anchor and hammer it into place. From there, grab your screw and drill it into place within the anchor. Repeat for as many holes as you need to hang your work of art.
Once you've drilled all of your holes, it's important to clean up your mess (simply dusting or sweeping up the concrete will do).
Voilá! You're done! Hang your work of art and sit back and admire how chic it looks on your industrial-style walls.
