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.

Hello new followers, I hope I don’t disappoint you. I want this place to feel like home, where we can escape the Thunderdome and process the world. Where we can post dog pics and recipes and book recommendations. Where we support each other as we get sober, lose weight, embark on new business opportunities, creative endeavors, relationships and travels. I want this to be your oasis of sanity and laughter in an increasingly mad world. A creative outlet where you can share your spirit with us.

We might not have any control over the news cycle—but we can control our habits and attitude. It all starts with us. And hopefully a little piece of that will start here.

Thank you @atommiller and your daughter!!! I am obsessed with these!
