PATRICK BROWN
What we're...

PATRICK BROWN
...doing is we've got these dresser drawers and we're going to put these up on the wall in a random pattern...

PATRICK BROWN
...and they're going to wind up being shelves when we put them up, okay?

FRANK
Okay.

PATRICK BROWN
So, you want me to show you how to do that? Is, I pick the center part of the wall. So, if you want to take that tape measure and we'll just measure to the center of the wall, which I have about 142 inches and the center of that would be 71. And then we want it to be right about eye length, which is different for some people than it is for others.

FRANK
Exactly.

PATRICK BROWN
So, I'll make it a little bit lower than my eye length.

FRANK
Of course.

PATRICK BROWN
So, if you'll hand me this first drawer, I'm going to show you a real simple way...

FRANK
Okay.

PATRICK BROWN
...of putting these up. Now, I'll hold it here if you grab the level. Put that right on top, so we know whether we're level or not. The bubble should be right between those two lines. Looking good?

FRANK
Yep, looks good.

PATRICK BROWN
Okay, so grab that drill right over there and then, just in each corner, drill a hole through the drawer and then go ahead and hit the wall with that drill, too. Try to get up in the corner as much as you can, okay?

FRANK
Okay.

PATRICK BROWN
Great. All right, now one more quick tip before we take this down is take that pencil and we want to draw lines around the corner, so that when we put this back up, we know exactly where it goes, okay?

FRANK
Okay. Just on the edges?

PATRICK BROWN
Yep.

FRANK
Okay.

PATRICK BROWN
I'll do this one. All right, right in that corner. Okay, now, let's take this down. The next thing we want to do is take these anchors and drive these...

PATRICK BROWN
...right into the holes, okay?

PATRICK BROWN
Well, you ready to finish putting this one up?

FRANK
Definitely.

PATRICK BROWN
All right. Get the screws that go into the anchors. And so, it should be pretty close now, because I've got this right where the pencil marks are. Is it in there?

FRANK
Yep, it's there.

PATRICK BROWN
Go for it. Not difficult at all, is it?

FRANK
No.

PATRICK BROWN
And this'll hold up quite a bit of weight. And then we get this one started over here. And then after we get this one up, we're going to randomly put the rest of them all up on the wall.

FRANK
This will be great for Kristen. I know she really wants to have something like this for her business, so...

PATRICK BROWN
Yeah, and it'll look really different. It already looks hugely different in here...

FRANK
Oh, definitely.

PATRICK BROWN
...with this color in here. While you finish doing those two, I'm going to...

FRANK
Okay.

PATRICK BROWN
...go ahead and start lining this next one up, okay?

FRANK
All right.

PATRICK BROWN
All right, I think we're making good progress.
