When hanging a picture I have often used a post it note rather than putting a mark on the wall. This serves two purposes. First, I can "move my mark" without leaving the first mark on the wall... Second, I can SEE the mark from across the room, so I can make sure that I really want to hang whatever I am hanging where I have placed my mark.
|Laser level is the height for my mark. The point on the Post It Note|
is the center. This photo taken from 6 feet away and the mark is easily
seen against the bright yellow post it note. I can even see the mark
from 10 or 12 feet away!
|Their advice was to place a Post It note UNDER the spot|
where you are about to drill and FOLD it to catch the
falling dust... My Folded Post It note with my "mark"...
|The contents of my folded Post It note after drilling, etc.|
|My Floor, AFTER drilling a hole in the drywall to hang a piece of art...|
Notice there is NO dust on the air return grate, the baseboard or the floor!!
Boy did I feel silly, but now I know! And so do you!
Until Next Time,
