When I returned from Europe, I discovered that a picture had fallen off the wall, and the mirror I hung in the entry had broken loose. It was still hanging by one hook (a testament to the strength of 3M Command Strips), but the other hook had broken away from the wall. This left a dent in the top layer of paint and plaster that needed to be repaired.
So I broke out my plaster and paint, and got to work!
First, I removed the loose plaster from the wall, and then used the putty knife to build up the missing plaster.
I let it dry overnight, and then it was ready for a quick coat of paint.
Finally, up went the mirror!
Now I’ll once again be the fairest one of all when I leave my apartment!
However, the picture that fell off the wall wasn’t as easy to put back up, so I’ll need to figure out a Plan B for it. You win some, you lose some.
