How to hang a picture...the no fail 'Why didn't I think of that?' way

Another day, another update in our ongoing master bedroom makeover...today I hung the huge mirror over our king size bed and I thought I'd share a quick trick I've been using to hang pictures. 

This way to hang pictures is seriously no fail...

All you do is turn the picture or mirror over so the hanging brackets are facing up.  Take a piece of tape and tear off a piece that's exactly the distance between where you want the nails to hit the brackets.


 
Now, take the tape off the the back of the picture and put it on the wall.  (Hopefully the brackets are even on the back of the picture.)  If they are, you can use a level to make sure your tape is level.

Then simply put a nail or screw into the wall at each end of the tape.

Remove the tape and hang your picture!

Works every time..and you're not left with a dozen wrong nail holes or 4 letter words flyin'.

PS. You're welcome ;)

PPS. For those wondering, the mirror is the Floral Round Wall Mirror from Kohl's and it was a steal.  It's one of the more reasonably priced large round wall mirrors to begin with at $99, but I got it on super sale and then used a 30% off coupon to get it for around $30.
