Hanging Shelves EASILY!


Having recently redone our kitchen (and repainting our family room), we are now in the process of hanging things back up. I absolutely HATE hanging shelves (and pictures with two hooks). I always measure, use my level to draw a line on the wall, but somehow it seems my measurement is always off slighting and it's a pain!



I saw this idea on Pinterest and it was the perfect time to try it out.  All you need is your shelves, a level, nails/screws and some tape. That's right... NO PENCIL OR RULER!

Rip off enough tape to reach from one hole to the other. You will need to make sure that your tape is the same level.  For example, I used the top of the screw to be the top of where I put my tape.  Stick your nail/ screw through the tape where the nail will be.  


Then all you have to do is remove the tape and put it on your wall.  This is where the level comes in.  Make sure the tape is level.

Then, just put your nails/screws through the holes you marked and hang your shelves.
It's THAT easy!
