Once you have all of your home decor items gathered together and unpacked, it's time to get to work and hang everything up and place it where you want it. You will probably need to use a hammer and nails at some point, unless you just use thumbtacks to hang up pictures, but they tend to be less sturdy than nails hammered into a wall. If you're nervous about using a hammer and nails or you haven't used them before, just take your time and go slowly, you'll learn in no time. This is one of the simple life hacks from Build.com, teaching us how to use a clothespin to hammer a nail into the wall safely. Hammering a nail in can often result in hitting your finger instead of the nail which can hurt a lot. So this hack promises to make our lives easier by holding the nail in place with a clothespin while setting it into the wall.

Simply take the nail and clasp it into the end of the clothespin, set the nail where you want to hammer it into the wall, and start with a few deliberate swings of the hammer. Once the nail is set, which is after about 3 to 5 swings, you can nail it in the rest of the way making sure you leave about half of the nail sticking out to hang the picture on. Then, you're ready to put up your artwork and fill up those white, blank walls with your own personal touches. Try this awesome trick out the next time you need to hammer a nail into the wall or anything else; it's sure to save a bruised or broken finger or two.
