    Kelly Daily: Hi, I am Kelly, principal owner and interior designer for Feather Your Nest. Today, I am teaching you how to create a designer look for your wall. Before this next step, you will need a few tools. Your hammer, some masking tape or even painter s tape or scotch tape would work, and your picture hangers. What I have done is taken my masking tape and taped the template to the wall, this way I can start to mark my holes for my pictures. You can take the template down after that and your holes will be ready to go.

    What I like to do is take my nails. You don t actually have to use the picture hanger part at this point, just take your nail and where you have marked for your pictures to hang, go ahead make your hole. Now you are using the template just as a guide. You might not have your nails in the ideal place for where your picture will actually hang, but that s okay, you can make adjustments later on and I am going to show you how to do that and repair any holes or mistakes you might make and next step, we are going to do is show you how to actually hang your pictures and then correct those mistakes if there are any.
