Casa Quickie: Neatly Nailed

Hammering a nail isn't exactly the most difficult home upkeep task, and I'm sure you can do so in your sleep. But can you hammer neatly? If you adhere a couple of pieces of tape to your wall, before you begin banging away, you will prevent any marks or cracks in the drywall or paint when you're hammering. Once the nail is set in place, you can just peel the adhesive, and it will tear off around the nail, leaving your wall as clean as whistle. How about that for home schooling?

i've had so many people recommend the tape thing in the hopes of keeping my walls from crumbling when i hammer things and i've yet to do it even though i know that there's some sense in it all. i think that maybe i just need posts like these to keep steering me in the right direction.

I'd frankly be more worried about the tape pulling paint off than accidentally hitting the wall and making marks.
