That's right. I need a stud finder. And while of the male variety would be nice, what I actually need is a way to figure out where the beams are behind my walls. And the pipes. I'm afraid that I'm going to puncture something important and then blow up my apartment. That would definitely put a damper on my Friday.
Along with a stud finder, I apparently need a better pair of eyes. I have come to the realization that I can not make anything level to save my life. Everything I hang on the wall is slightly crooked, and that's even with the use of a level. I was definitely not cut-out for home improvement projects.
Which proves my original point: I need to find a stud.
