Armed and Dangerous

I've got a drill in my hand, a stud finder, ladder, and a laser light that helps me make sure that I hang things correctly. I also have some extra time on my hands because my kiddos are visiting my parents in Kansas. Too bad I don't have this tool kit to lug my tools around with. Isn't that cute? I found it here.


So what am I up to? Fixing things that need some fixin'. First, I'm going to fix the drapes that the Hubs hung over a year ago in our bathroom. He hung them way too low. Next, I'm going to figure out why our fire alarms keep beeping all the darn time. No, it's not that they have a low battery. They are electrical and don't need a battery. I Googled the problem and apparently it's dust. So I'm going to try to vacuum them all, one more time, before I rip them all out of the wall. (Two have already been yanked in the past year. Need to work on a solution to this problem!)


So that's two semi-major projects for me. No need to over-do it the first day.

P.S. Anyone know if I really need to use those plastic thingies with the screws when I drill something into the wall?

LOL - you go Mrs. Fix-it!

You mean the studs? Only if you're hanging something heavy and you want extra security. Or like if you're hanging something over your kid's bed.

Post pics of your masterpiece when you're done!

You only need to use the plastic thingies (mollies) if you don't want what you're attaching to the wall to fall off. I'd say they're pretty necessary for anything over 5lbs.

Studs, Mollies... ??? The curtains are not heavy so I should be okay. So far... not good.
