How-Tos and Inspiration
Considering the amount of time we spend at our desks, it makes sense to have something pretty and interesting to look at, don't you think? You're lucky if you have a window to gaze out of, but those can be limited in office settings. So, if you're staring at a blank wall all day, how about jazzing it up with art and adding accessories to your work space? We had fun with ours by hanging a trendy black glasses frame, a white canvas and a super large clock - after all you need to know when it's time to log off.
Are you a fan of the big clock trend? I recently bought one for a very small apartment and I love it. For me it wasn't so much about the trend, it was more about finding the right piece to fill a large wall space between two identical windows.
Centering artwork over a piece of furniture can be a real pain! Sure, you can try to eyeball it, but you’re almost guaranteed to be off. Here’s what I do, and it works like a charm every time.
Our CenterFinder is more than just a measuring tape, it also simplifies finding the center of anything - a wall, a piece of furniture, a picture frame, or a length of carpet. In a nutshell, it quickly determines the centre of any measurement without having to do any math. How great is that?
North, South, East and West; our picture hanging tools have really had a workout lately.
For a warm-up, Tyler Ryan from WACH-Fox TV took our products to a Lowe’s store in Columbia, North Carolina for his DIY Painting and Walls demonstration. Tyler was definitely impressed when he tried our CenterFinder, Hang & Level, Déco Nails and Déco Screws. He liked them so much that he wrote a full review on his blog, where he also championed our Déco Hammer and Anchor Points.
A back to school supply list for elementary students usually means coloured pencils, spiral-bound or composition notebooks, three-ring binders, glue sticks, scissors and a Disney-themed of backpack. With high school, it's all about the clothes and how cool they look in front of their friends. But for university or college kids, you need to think about the things they need to decorate either a dorm room or first apartment, and that's the stage my daughters are at.
Sure it measures like other tapes, but CenterFinder™ also simplifies the process of finding the center point of anything — a wall, a piece of furniture, a picture frame, or a length of carpet. In a nutshell, it helps you quickly determine the center of any measurement without having to do any math. How great is that?
