    As another “unhandy” guy, I would never attempt to hang pictures without a spotter (my wife)! You may have put yourself in an impossible situation. My identity is safe, I am good with numbers (money) and a few other things which may be considered superficial. I am usually the guy in the group who gets the mission impossible because I succeed where maybe others won’t. BTW, it does not hurt my identity at all to call a professional.

      Good point about a spotter. I wanted to surprise her, but it did put me in a bind. You sound very comfortable in your skin. I’m trying to get there. Slowly, but surely. I know who to call if I run into Mission Impossible. I don’t have issues calling for professional help, but in this case, I wanted to take it on myself!

  2. Way to go, dude. We all have our weakness. A real man is one who can admit them and move on! Great post.

    Congrats on taking the first steps to squash your fears! I have mis hammered many a nail in my day and banged my thumb on more than one occasion but both the walls, tools, and I survived. :)

    I’ve never used hercules hooks. I’m a plain hammer and nail kinda gal. What I like to do is hammer nails for pictures into the wall at an angle. That makes it easier to adjust the leveling of the picture and can also help hang it more flush to the wall. -Sydney

  4. As a well-versed spotter/last minute substitute for an ‘unhandy’ boyfriend and I commend you for not only giving it a good shot but trying to surprise your significant other as well!

    • Buck Inspire says:

      Thanks! Always trying to figure what is the better choice. Surprise the significant other with some mistakes or have her spot, but the result wouldn’t be a surprise and with less mistakes.

    You scared of hanging pictures on your wall? We both have something in common Buck!

    The best part is the more you do this, the better you get at it. I’m sure the next time you’ll make fewer mistakes.

    Glad it worked out without too many holes in the wall (my greatest fear!) Buck!

      Haha, I actually got my inspiration from your Hercules Hooks post awhile back. Thanks for starting me on my path. Death, public speaking, and hanging pictures! Who knew?

    As a swiss-cheeser myself, I can definitely sympathize. I’ve found that a Black & Decker laser level has paid handsome returns in nicely aligned frames and curtain hooks.

  7. Wow, what an ordeal. :)
    I have a bunch of holes on my walls too. As long as they are behind the frames, no big deal.
