Works-For-Me-Wednesday: Picture Hanging Kit

*Tomorrow is the last day to enter to win a $50 gift certificate to CSN Stores. They have everything!*

It seems that whenever I get ready to hang something on the wall, I need all kinds of stuff. You know, the picture hanging stuff. I finally got smart a few years ago (yeah, it took that long) and gathered all the picture paraphernalia and put it all together in one nifty, neat little container.

Actually, it’s a plastic to-go container from a local restaurant.

But hey, it works. The clear plastic lid is what sold me. Not to mention it was free. Well, for the price of the to-go meal. But I digress.

It contains: A small tape measure, pencil, sawtooth hangers, eye screws, picture wire, nails, and stuff to hang frames (you know, the J-shaped thingies).

Now when I’m ready to hang a picture or put a frame together, all I have to do is grab my container, level and hammer and I’m ready to go! It makes things a lot easier to have everything all together and easy to find. I’m going to put it to lots of use in a couple of weeks for Caedmon’s room makeover. I know I will be glad I have all those things at my fingertips!

It works for me! See more Works For Me Wednesday tips at We Are THAT Family.

  1. What a great idea. My picture hanging kit is Matt! I'm sure he would appreciate an alternative.
