- J'ai monté le tableau sur le mur.

This relates to:
Monter can be used with avoir or être in Le Passé Composé... and changes meaning -

Bonjour D. ! Great question indeed! ​The choice of auxiliary with "monter" would have spot on here, but in French you wouldn't use the verb "monter" to say "to mount a picture on the wall", but the verb "accrocher" or "pendre" (to hang). E.g. "​J'ai accroché le tableau sur le mur." / "J'ai pendu le tableau au mur." I hope that's helpful! Merci et à bientôt !
