We found another piece of wall art, that matches the one we installed several years ago… This area of the wall seems like the perfect place for it… Marked where the holes should go… Then, drilled small pilot holes… Then, drilled bigger holes… And inserted the anchors… And, installed the piece… The silver screw heads […]
Found these on clearance at Walmart, today. Not sure when they’ll get installed, but at least we now have them…
This last bit of old tile board never got removed when we redid the bathtub… May as well do it now… I just used a hammer and the 5-in1 tool… The back of the 5-in-1 tool just broke! Amazingly, the 5-in-1 tool still worked, and I was able to get the old tile board removed…
