It's Tessie's World...
This morning, she strongly suggested that I should finish the shower curtain in the bathroom of the Fantasy Cottage, so that she could get cleaned up... That's how she put it anyway.
In order to do that, I had to recover the pin board.
There were barely any lines left on the graph paper and the wax was mostly gone from the covering.
So. I went to work and peeled off everything from the ceiling tile and started over.
First I cut and pasted three pieces of graph paper until I had a large piece that fit.
Then I made sure that all of the lines met up and glued it together.
I used wax paper from Dollar Tree. It worked OK, but I doubt that it will last for years, like the stuff that I usually buy at the grocery store. Not as much wax...
That's why I say that it's Tessie's world and we only get to live here for her convenience...
I hate to admit it, but after it was stretched and pinned, she was right. It goes well in the bathroom. Almost bubble like, with all of those circles. And the background color is almost a perfect match for the paint.
I am going back now and spray the shower curtain with hairspray. That will keep it from wilting when she takes a shower. This could take a while. Maybe a few extra coats of spray are in order.
Back to the grindstone. Tessie is brandishing her whip and chair to keep me in line.
See you tomorrow.
