Not exactly sure how to run with that, but I'm going to take it as a compliment! It means I am being calm and patient. Thanks sister :)
In fact, I just put my first screw in the wall of the addition the other day to hang a mirror. I was terrified of messing up and having to do it twice. In the old house it didn't really matter, if I missed a stud it was just fake paneling, so I didn't care, but in this house, I don't want a hundred holes in the new sheetrock!
Luckily it only took one try. I used my stud finder, took a couple measurements and bada-bing I have a mirror hung!
Elsewhere though, its another story!
The walls in the existing house are all plaster, and it takes a bit more finesse to hang stuff, so for now, I am just finding random nails in the walls and hanging stuff on them!
Therefore, there is artwork in weird places, and mirrors that are too low, but at least they are no longer leaned against the wall or piled on the floor within reach of small children!
There are still plenty of boxes and things scattered about, but I thought I'd update you on what things look like now, compared to two weeks ago. I did the same as before and just grabbed my camera and took pictures this morning of exactly what the house looks like. No need to be perfect, we're all friends here, right?
I thought a side by side comparison might be fun! Let's get started!
