I can do only one thing well—I can hang a very straight picture! Something to be said for that, right? Here’s what I do!
Remember the plaque and shelf in my little girl’s room from last week’s post? Here’s how I was able to hang it perfectly.
Small hole here... Then I made a template of the shelf to hang below the plaque…again, nail holes were in the middle of the shelf back…I made the holes in the template…
Now I tape the plaque and shelf templates to the wall…
I use a level to make sure the newspaper templates are straight…if not, I readjust the tape trying to get level …
Once both templates are level I put nails in the holes I made on the templates with the scissors (I needed molly screws to hold the shelf…)
I remove the templates…Look! Only one nail hole!
Then I hang the items and—ta da! Perfect without a thousand nail holes in the freshly painted wall! (My husband likes that part!)
And here's the finished product! OK, I’d like to say you could tune in for other tips like this in the future but this was it! Hope you found it helpful!
P.S. On yesterday's post I told you about "Falling Slowly", the Oscar nominated Best Song from the independent Irish movie ONCE...it WON! (See below to hear song!) We were just so excited here for the two songwriter's here...and they gave such impassioned speeches! Great movie!
