Pinterest is a great source for DIY tips and I was able to try one out recently that I thought was genius: using tape as a template to easily transfer the location of 2 holes on the back of a mirror I needed to hang. No need for a measuring tape! After marking the spot for the holes on the tape, I placed it on the wall at the height I wanted and used one of my favorite tools, a hands-free laser level, to make sure it was straight. Then before drilling, I taped a paper bag right under the hole to prevent the dust from falling on the floor – so much better than having to clean up all that dust!
I removed the tape, put in the anchors and success on the first try! For more quick DIY tips I’ve compiled, check out my Pinterest board.
