  4. Wall Decoration (Lemons into lemonade)

    One of those projects where nothing seemed to go right. The end result was good, and I still had all of my fingers, so I guess it was a win. Otherwise I haven't had so many problems on a (relatively simple) project before. But as I like to say, the only simple operation is the one you aren't...
