I decided this was the morning to begin rehanging the family photos in the hall. In late summer, I took down all the photos and spackled the holes in the walls. However, when I brushed on the primer and paint, all the repaired spots showed. Tom decided the paint I used had been damaged since we had done the original painting a few years ago.
Eventually, we bought new paint, same color, same brand. However, we had a problem. One of the walls extended beyond the hall, and became the living room wall. Our piano sits in front of that wall and Tom and I don't have the strength any more to move it.
Eric stepped up and said he'd help us. Bless his heart. Not only did he move the piano...he painted the walls a few weeks before Thanksgiving.
But I still couldn't replace the photos because...I didn't have the new style damage-free hanging strips I wanted to use to rehang the photos.
I got around to buying the hangers shortly before Christmas. They have been sitting in a bag until this morning.
I still don't have all the photos up but I expect to have them up before spring.
It's a good thing we are retired.
