Heating a nail sounds like to much effort. Besides, how warm would it have to be? I would prefer to pre-drill a small hole. I also think that driving the nail in is not so much the plaster problem, as pulling one out.

Just found your blog today for the first time and I absolutely love it. It's fascinating how much of the tips and advice we see all over the internet is already a part of our collective wisdom. Looking forward to keeping up with you!

I tried this tip and it works wonderfully! It was not much work at all and the nail went in like butter with no problems. Thank you so much!

Glad it worked, Lynette! My walls are about at max capacity, so I haven't had the opportunity to try a new old idea lol
