A mini tutorial for the DIY-curious ladies (or anyone who finds themself without an air compressor and nailgun). There are probably a lot of people on here who already know this trick, but I thought it might be helpful to someone.
So, the piece that I just hung up in the hallway fell (note to self, if I can't find my picture hanging wire, freaking go to the store and get some; do not resort to twine) and knocked the chair rail trim below it loose. I hate loud noises and air compressors intimidate me, so my contractor brother-in-law told me about this alternative:
1. Drill a pilot hole with a 1/16" drill bit. Bonus points if your drill is pink.
2. Hammer a trim nail in most of the way, then use a nail set to drive it below the surface of the trim. Done. Well, you still have to use wood filler and paint over the spot, but you're done with the hardest part.
