Ooooh big promises with that title! I’m gonna bring it!
My friends, as I was installing the board and batten in my boy’s room I realized that the bottom shelf of the two $5 dollar shelves I installed a few months back had to get outta town to make room for the big bad B&B.
The shelf had to be moved to make room for the wall treatment. What’s sad was not the removal of the shelf, but the ensuing gaping horrible hole that removing it left in my wall. Why such a ghastly hole? Well, I insisted six months ago that those shelves were muy permanente. Like, they weren’t going to be moved for years baby years so go right ahead darling husband and use some big bad nails to secure it to the wall. Big! Bad! Nails! Into the Studs! Do it baby do it !!!!
I imagined that if ever I needed to move those shelves, I could simply pop them off, no prob, right?
What’s a girl to to? Repair it pronto. It might have made sense to repair the hole before installing the top rail, but since the hole starts right there, I’m rollin’ with it.
