In my last blog entry I posted a photo of a coat-hook/picture frame project that I wanted to do in Em's room. After buying dozens of frames to get four I wanted, I ventured to create (honestly, it would be "duplicate") the project in the photo. Most of the fam was gone this morning, so I ventured to do this on my own, with the exception of a few screw turns by Andrew. After meticulously measuring, and remeasuring, I drilled the holes/anchors/screws/coat-hooks into the wall. I very excitedly hung the frames I had prepared, anticipating a great "Ahhhhh" moment. But what I got was a "What the heck?!" moment. The frames did not lay beautifully against the wall, but rather hung and swayed like a swing in the breeze. Argh! Since the coat-hooks were well attached to the wall (a.k.a. They're not ever coming down!) I decided to leave it, and make the best of it. Which is still in process, by the way. I will take a photo when I am finished being creative.
