Second time that Nelson has helped us around the apartment. He did an incredible job hanging some west elm floating shelves and anchoring them so we could store our very heavy books! Also hung a hub mirror, installed some hardware, and hung some art - all in a few hours. He is really cheerful and knows what he is doing - would absolutely recommend.
