Plummy Plumb Line

Every home decorating show I watch lines up the dining table under the chandelier. Exactly.  

I have straight line impairment (self diagnosis). My preschooler can cut better than I can. It’s really hard for me to eyeball the middle of the table with the center of the light fixture. 


Solution… Magnets on the light…  

String of paper clips!!! Yes that skill can be used in adulthood! 

Wait for the swinging to stop!     

Or, better yet, use yarn with one clip in top and bottom…  

Center found! I was pretty far off.   (Table to be refinished soon)  

I store my plumb line on the side of my fridge. Every time I move it to clean or add a leaf I center my table. 


Happy center-finding!
