This entry is part 4 of 22 in the series Tackling Tasks

As I mentioned in my introductory post for Tackling Tasks in October, we have lived in our home for almost seven years and we still have blank spaces where art or something interesting should be.  We often have grand plans and pieces of art literally sit propped against the wall for ages.

I have wanted to put some piece of art on the wall over the bathtub in our master bath almost since we moved in, but I just never got around to it.  Why is it that the simplest projects are the ones I put off for way too long?  And then when they are completed (5 minutes later), I wonder, “Why did I put that off?”

I had the artwork from our previous house and just needed a nail, a hammer, a measuring tape, and a pencil to get it hung.

I measured the length of the wall and measured the height I needed on the art piece until and placed an x where I needed the nail (this frame only required one nail).  Hammered the nail into the wall, placed the art work on the nail and straightened it.  Voila!  Instant bath time ambiance.  I just might have to take a bath this evening to sit and enjoy my handiwork!

    I’m in my home a year now and I have yet to hang my artwork yet. I’m terrified I am going to screw up! Fear is holding me back from my DIY projects. HELP!
