Image hooks and screws can be used to hang lighter objects on any sort of wall in nearly any location without the need to search for studs.

I wrote a little bit about the sheet rock joint compound above. I am utilizing this as a result of I like the best way it performs.

Wood screws have bigger spaces between the teeth to grip wooden fibers higher. Set the screw head just below the floor of the Sheetrock and finish your patch as regular.
Make sure you read the package deal or ask a knowledgeable particular person within the hardware store or department if you’re undecided which anchor will work to your type of wall development. Packages for hanging hardware also will specify how a lot weight they’re supposed to have the ability to hold. I suggest you are taking that with a grain of sand (or plaster mud).
