I'll Never Be a Hand Model

June 27, 2011

The past several weekends have been busy with various events so I haven't been able to get any projects finished (or started for that matter). I'm slowly plugging away at a project that will hopefully render one room in my home useful. Unfortunately if I start the use the room for it's intended purpose it can no longer be used as a place to store all my junk. It's a bit of a catch-22.

Anyway, as I'm sure you all know the first rule of painting is that no matter how careful you are you'll end up with paint everywhere. This anomaly seems to increase dramatically if you're not using basic white paint, or have various events you need at attend where it's not advisable to show up all speckled and splotchy like this:

Thankfully after quite a bit of scrubbing with a rather uncomfortable plastic pot scrubber I managed to get it all off my hands and arms. Of course, it wasn't until the next day that I realised that I'd also managed to get paint on my foot . . . .

PS - I've suffered a set-back with my bathroom makeover . I'd used two Command adhesive hooks to hang the painting, but one keeps falling off. I'd used them in order to avoid drilling any more holes in the wall tiles, but I'd rather not risk the painting fall off the wall and break my new shelf. Before I break out my drill does anyone have any other suggestions?

  1. Hi, I work for Command(TM) Brand – we saw your post about the Bathroom Makeover and wanted to help before you have to break out your drill! For a bathroom application like yours we recommend using our water resistant strips – they’re specially designed for bathrooms and high humidity. If the picture has a wire on the back for hanging or notches for a nail you could try the Command™ Sawtooth Picture Hanger. If Velma and Daphne weigh more than 2.2 kg you’ll need to use the Command™ Medium Picture Hanging Strips instead. We hope that helps – good luck on the rest of your projects! ~ Claire
