30 Days to build a bookshop: Day 5
Tonight when I took off my shoes I yelled ‘oh yeah that’s the stuff’ so weirdly my cat ran away.
Its been a big day, I got to the shop before lunch time and managed to get one of the mirrors off the dividing wall. Cloth taped the whole thing until it looked like a Victoria’s Secret Angel, put down a lot at the sides which is where I would be putting post pressure then slid putty knives behind it and gently start pulling it back, ideally I would’ve put some shims at the top but the hardware store only had doorstops and I didn’t think it would work. It makes a really satisfying sound while you’re prying it away. If you have a minute and a half to spare here’s a vid of me getting mirror 1 off the wall. It’s mainly just my butt going back and forth really quickly though so don’t say you haven’t been warned.
I moved the big boards over to the other side of the room so I could keep taking down the plasterboard but there is some really dodgy and pointless wiring in the corner so I turned the power off, unhooked it from the wall and tidied it away until I can figure out what to to do with it.
