new shelves in the bedroom craft area!

Guess how many holes Brendan and I drilled into the wall to hang these shelves on Sunday?

 

Anyone?

 

Anyone?

 

TWENTY-FOUR.

 

Living in an old apartment apparently means that the paper-thin walls have no interest in supporting wall-mounted shelves no matter what kind of anchors and brackets you use. We finally got them up in a relatively sturdy fashion, but I came home from work yesterday to find that the bottom shelf had come loose a bit. Guess it'll be more brackets, then.

 

P.S. Before you even try to talk to me about stud-finding, let me tell you that they're at least 50 inches apart in every single room. I hardly ever find one.
