      best idea that I have seen for hanging pictures; I would need two of these to hang pictures that I want to have a nail in either corner for.... picture hanging tip

    • Arla Woodling

      Easy peasy way to determine where to hang picture, mirror, etc., on wall. CAUTION: If you're using a picture hanger with a hook on it instead of just a nail, you will want to MAKE SURE the HOOK is where the nail mark is on the wall, not where you will put the nail. The nail will be a little higher than your mark. (where the 'hook' should be.) Get the idea?
