The geeky way to install vinyl

January 26, 2009 at 6:35 am 7 comments

A while back I got my husband a laser level. He was not impressed, but I have enjoyed playing with it. When I wanted to slap some freshcut vinyl on a wall at home, I remembered the long lost laser level. A new set of batteries and it was good to go. The one we have has a magnet on the bottom to connect it to the dangerous looking pointy thing that goes in your wall, presumably while your house is still under construction. Hmmm, what could I stick that magnet to? The ceiling fan seemed just the right height and it’s made of metal so why not? it helps to turn the fan off first, by the way.


I turned the laser on and adjusted the position of the level and/or moved the fan until I had a nice straight line projected onto the wall where I wanted my words. Then I began lining up my 3 piece installation.


The finished result from my Cricut and 1 Corinthians 13:8:

      Love it! I’ve been thinking how I was going to get vinyl in my new house. I was thinking a level and a pencil. That tool is the bomb!
