In my office, I had a map of the world hanging above one section of my desk. When I started back at college, I took it down to hang shelves to house all the books I needed for the classes.
As I’m not longer in school, I found other places for the books. Like the shelves in someone else’s house.
I wanted to hang the map back up, but the wall needed to be repaired. The shelves required screws, and the screws left holes.
This weekend I decided to repair the holes and rehang my map. I took down the shelves, only to have them take down a good strip of paint with them. I patched the screw holes, and other damaged areas, and prepped the area for paint.
After the area was sufficiently prepped, I headed out to the garage for the paint supplies–and discovered I had no touch up paint.
Argh. Off to Home Depot.
Of course, this meant that any paint I bought, no matter how close a match, wasn’t going to match.
SOOO, I cleared out my office of all furniture, wall hangings, curtains and dust and repainted my office.
9 hours later, and without one drop of paint where it did not belong, my office was back together, including my map!
