So this is a place to share the good things that happen in our lives. They don't have to be huge even little tiny good things are good.
I used the drill again. I put 3 picture hooks up on the wall in my son's room. I used rawl plugs and everything. As before I had hubby with me but I did the work and the clearing up.
Son is going to finish moving back home next week as well which is brilliant because he will have support then as well. (He doesn't need much support, just needs people around that love and understand him)
Plugs? For picture hooks?
How heavy are the pictures?!?!
They have frames and glass and hubby said I needed them, did I not need them? They felt quite heavy to me.
Perfectly fine to use plugs,,also it depends on how the wall is constructed. If it was a stud wall then some kind of expanding plug would be needed as plaster board is thin and not very strong being made of Chalk!
if brick with plaster covering then also a rawplug to allow the metal screw to grip and expand into the dusty brick. If a picture is very light then a masonry nail would hold on most walls. If a jobs worth doing then it’s worth doing it well. You are doing so great song,,,keep it up. As with most things once the initial worry is gone it becomes easy. Oh and I hope you check for cables before drilling as they are usually hidden very shallow in the wall.
This is a great site. You get useful DIY advice on top of everything.
Fair enough re: wall construction, but to me, the biggest picture hook in normal use is https://www.screwfix.com/p/picture-hooks-twin-brassed-100-pack/17238?tc=AL2&ds_kid=92700024374095455&ds_rl=1249481&ds_rl=1245250&gclid=CjwKCAjw7cDaBRBtEiwAsxprXeWmJNvmx8kX_jyo7GCW28txtKl4yiMmvvKBFrax6jNxEqPJ8gtgxBoCVxQQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds&dclid=COakr4CcrNwCFdFk0wod4E0Hdg
For plaster over brick or blockwork, you just hammer the little pins in. Leaves smaller holes in the wall, but admittedly not nearly as much fun as an afternoon with power tools ;o)
