Sometimes I make major mistakes...like hanging things before I am absolutely certain I like what the outcome will be. An example of this would be a mirror from the Martha that was discounted to $20. Pricier than I would usually pay, but Indiana had just sent me my tax return (although the IRS really taking their time this year, usually I have the opposite problem). I LOVE mirrors. Especially in a place (like the Penthouse) that only gets really good Southern light in one room. I thought it would look nice in the kitchen.
I was wrong.
I hate fixing holes in walls.
|Measured out the width between the hangers.|
|Measured the wall and screwed in the screws. Notice the hole in the wall from the screw that held one of the plate hangers that used to hang here? I figured the mirror would cover it, so why bother?|
|OH! No like!|
|Really! I don't like it! And the mirror and its two new screws was supposed to hide the other three holes that were already there!!!|
|So it moved into the hallway where the smaller oval mirror hung. Now where the hell do I put THAT mirror?|
|Well, I hung it directly above the mirror in the dining room.Thank God for high ceilings!|
|This is also how they were hung next door when I lived in the first floor flat (look on the very edge of the bedroom wall). I miss all the windows in the old apartment...|
