Back in the day, when I first discovered blogs,
In my defense, I didn’t just willy nilly attack my wall with a sledge hammer,
although it certainly appears that way.
Using a magnetic stud finder, I found the stud on the left (can’t see it in the photo from that angle),
measured over 18 inches (like the other studs in our home are spaced), and found the other stud.
“Perfect,” I thought.
My big mistake was not anticipating the random stud in the center, 6 inches from the stud on the right.
I now use an electronic stud finder that picks up everything and beeps as you slide it across the surface.
I found just what I needed at a thrift shop yesterday.
I’ll share a complete before and after when it’s done.
In the meantime,
run some fine grit sandpaper between the two middle planks, and do a lil’ rearranging
but I wanted to show you something.)
