Create a wall of perfectly placed pictures
A house isn’t a home until it’s decorated.
Hanging art on the wall allows you to show off your artistic side and make it your space.
Having the right tools for the job will make the job easier and faster, said Jackie Pardini, a Lowe’s design expert and public relations manager for the Stroudsburg store.
A flat-angle handle hammer: “A 20-ounce fiberglass hammer is a good choice. It is light enough to be comfortable but still do the job,” he said.
Level: A standard line level with bubbles will work fine, but a small laser level will be more accurate.
Electronic stud finder: You need this to find where the studs are behind the walls. It is best to hang things on a stud, “especially if what you are hanging is heavy,” Pardini said.
For $17 to $25, you can purchase one that will identify wood or metal studs and also identify the presence of electrical wiring.
