Attaching picture frame molding to wall?


When attaching picture frame molding to the wall there isn't always a wall stud where you need it. What is your technique?

I used liquid nails panel adhesive, and tack a couple of brads into it to hold it in place while drying.

I use Loctite Power Grab and maybe a few brads
There's one specifically made for molding and panels.

I used Elmer's wood glue and brads (nail two nails so that they cross like an X into the sheetrock; locks it in while glue dries), Elmer's is easy, cheap, and worked for me.

Bob22 has got it. Nail it as you would into studs, but angle the nails at a few different angles. This will pin it to the sheetrock. If you are going to paint, the caulk you put around the edges will hold it sufficiently. If stained, glue it to the wall with any adhesive caulk and then nail it as stated above.

I used to used Liquid Nails until I found this Power Grab.
I like the way you can butter it up and stick it to the wall and it stays.
It's water soluble so clean up of the ooze out is easy.

Almost anything Loctite puts out is hard to beat.
