    How do you guys handle nailing the top edge of moulding that strays from the wall if there isn't any or enough studs nearby the offending area? I was thinking that I could nail two nails thru at opposing angles to "lock" the top edge to the drywall. Shooting straight in obviously just pulls out. Thoughts?
