Mirrors from Hell

Remember these pictures of when we first moved in here in June:

Can you see the mirrors in both photo’s? How about those floor to ceiling mirrors (future library) in the top picture? Gross, huh? And on the bottom photo (the dining room) they were only 3/4 of the way up on one whole wall.

Well, after Tony attempted to remove some of them the other day, we decided we would need to hire someone else to do the job. Those mirrors are extremely heavy and a lot of work to get off the wall. So, I called Mr. Handyman and they have been here the past two days working on removing the mirrors and repairing the damaged walls.

This is what the (future) library walls looked like when the guy left yesterday:


I don’t even have words. Just remember, if you ever think you want mirrors glued to your walls, don’t do it. You really don’t want this…I promise.

When the guys are done working today I’ll get a few more pictures…I just can’t wait for it to be finished!

Yeah, mirrors on walls are generally not a good idea. It always looks so 80's and tacky to me. The wall damage from the glue sucks too. Jon and I learned a thing or two about how to hand drywall during our home improvement adventures. It's not fun.

Water Balloons

When my kids told me they didn't know what to do with themselves yesterday I suggested they go outside and play with the water balloons....
