A little bit of finessing had to be done before I could hang my DIY Decor on the wall. I’m thankful that I still live with my parents and have access to my dad’s kickass set of screwdrivers (mixed with golfballs because what else would dads have in their garage?).
After that, I placed three Command Strips on each frame.
Upon determining the placement for the pictures on wall, I realized that I hadn’t taken into account how difficult it is to ensure the picture is straight. Luckily (or rather, obviously), there’s an app for that.
So I peeled off the Command Strip backings, placed the picture on the wall and levelled it, pushed all my weight onto the three strips for thirty seconds and said a little prayer that it wouldn’t come crashing down and ruin my hours of work. I’m also hoping they don’t slip off the wall during the night and kill my face.
I’m really liking the look of having pictures on both sides of the wall to balance it out a bit. I might add two small mirrors or 2 small framed pictures around it, but that’ll be for another rainy day.
Speaking of rainy days, I’m really missing that pseudo summer that spoiled us in mid-March. I was thrilled to get back into my power rollerblading workouts which are both fun and toning. I could see a minuscule difference in my legs, but it was still good to see!
I’m using my tax return money to invest in a new pair of rollerblades. Mine are currently about five years old and since I use them daily for almost 5 months, they are pretty worn out.
Plus they’re so much cuter than my old ones! And they have 90mm wheels, which equals a faster, smoother ride.
