I have always loved turquoise and red together and I especially love that the owl seems very angry. So I bought the paper and said to myself “I’m going to make this the backing of those green shelves, I will put them up in my daughters room, and they will be adorable!”
So last night I set my Phazers to “craft.” First things first, open tiny bottle of champagne from baby shower goody bag, check.
Take 3 sips of champagne and begin to think this out….
I placed the shelves on the paper and traced around them. Logical. I cut out the squares, and rewarded myself with a few more sips of champagne.
Shmeared glue on the back and place paper on the backs of the shelves.The glue needed to dry thoroughly so I drank the rest of the mini champagne bottle while watching “Boardwalk Empire” with the hubby. As I drifted to sleep I imagined how cute those shelves were going to be in her room.
Cut to next day: Husband is out grocery shopping, baby is out with the sitter. I begin to hang the shelves.
First shelf goes well. Shelf two… things go horribly wrong. As I begin to hammer in the second screw the wall gets a bit crumbly. So I take out a wall plug and hammer, twice. The plug goes through the wall and falls down inside the wall. I am left with a GIANT hole. Put duct tape over and try again…fyi duct tape does not fix everything. “Piece of shit!!!” I scream. “Son of a whore!” I yell to know one in particular.
How will I mount this? I try a nail but the wall just crumbles more.
