Giveaway Day!

Have you tried to hang frames in groups in your house? Maybe in a hallway leading up a staircase?
Perhaps just one over the other to crown the perfect buffet, or side table?

Maybe you've got a collection of art you'd like to hang over the bed?

Or behind the sofa?

Maybe an abstract hanging of several frames is what you're going for?

Well, if you've tried to do it before, but they just seemed too crooked, or you ended up with a nice arrangement but walls that resembled swiss cheese, perhaps this can help you!


The hang and level! It's a great tool for DIY Designers, and trade designers, too! Marks exactly where the nail or screw should go, and has a handy level to make sure that they're all at the same mark, and level straight across.
You could pay $19.99 for one of these do-it-all-hanging-genies! BUT WAIT! If you comment right now, I'll give it to you for free, and I'll throw a second one in. That's right! Two winners will be announced tomorrow. Just leave a comment on this blog post! If you're a follower, I'll put your name in twice!
Happy Wednesday!

  7. What a great tool to have. I've always let my hubbs pound in the nails, but of course it's not uncommon for him to "miss" the mark the first time around and nail must come out :0(. When we painted, I refused to add any "new" holes unless we could find a handy dandy tool/helper. Looks like it really exists!
    10" of snow? Ugh! I can't even begin to imagine...I don't want to try to imagine, lol! Spring will be here soon, til then you stay warm!

  10. If I ever saw a tool that I needed, this is it! No amount of measuring has kept me from having to pull out the nail and do it again.

    I won't add my name though, I can find a studs with a hammer and also hang things level on sight. One little talent I have. My hubby however could probably use this, tee hee.

  31. OMG, hanging pictures in my house is a whole process. But the inner engineer in me is doing something right...it's turned out perfect every time. Great tool though!

  34. FYI, I figured out how to Follow someone from your dashboard. It is near the bottom and you have to enter their URL in manually... just an FYI.

    And Artie... did you know I posted a blog this morning asking about hanging artwork on blank walls... as in, a wall that doesn't have furniture in front of it. Since I have pulled everything away from the walls, I am afraid to hang my artwork because it won't have an "anchor." Yikes!
