Adventures with Mollies

Oh No! When I hung up my newly purchased curtains, the weight was too much and the poorly installed curtain rod collapsed.

Now my wall is full of holes. But that's okay because...

I can use these magical Molly Anchors that are allegedly super easy to install and will easily hold up some measly curtains.

ARGGHHHHHHHH. I swear, I followed the directions! Now I'm too angry to try again. Plus, I can't deal with more holes in my wall.

Did the molly bolt instructions claim they could be driven into the wall with a hammer? According to this source, that's not as true as it ideally could be.

This requires a drill.

Oh wow! I didn't even know it was possible to bend them like that, hehe.

Since it's an outside wall, I'm assuming that Molly Toggles wouldn't really work.

lol... I've been in that situation more than once. Hang in there! (no pun intended)

Thanks for the support guys! I did finally get a drill and managed to get everything in except for one. And that one is my white whale.
