Tired of crooked pictures?

I know I am.  I have tried every little trick that I know to keep my pictures straight.  Martha Stewart recommended putting bumpers on each corner.  That didn't work for me.  Every time the door slams every hung picture went awry.  Hopefully today all this will change.  Autumn from Design Dump is an interior designer who introduced me to The Cobra Tack!

The Cobra Tack comes in a variety of sizes.  I found mine at Lowes.  They are simple to use and it really leaves no guess work to hanging pictures.  Autumn recommends this to all her clients.  It is a great way to hang a grouping of pictures.  It keeps the picture level and makes it easy to hang equal distances from each other.  Click on her name above to see her tutorial!

I tried them out today on 5 different problem pictures.  They were so easy. 
I hope this offers a solution to all your crooked pictures!
