So after I drilled through the drywall (uselessly) I then proceeded to drill my screw right into the plywood. It feels nice and sturdy. Probably more than if I would have added one of those drywall anchors.
The mirror turned out Perfect! It adds a nice warm glow of reflection while enlarging the room.
Finally, We also got some of our friends to add a piece of art to our wall. Sebastian painted the “cock” (typical) and Luca (<2yrs old) painted the "luca picaso". Jenn added the frasco (more on that later) and Marco painted a Coffee bean on Matrix code (not shown as it is oil paint & still drying).
Now, A fresco (I really like this kind of painting) is a painting mixed in with Spackle (Plaster). It is the same way Leonardo Da Vinci painted the “last supper” & Michelangelo Painted “The Creation of Adam” on the Sistine chapel.
As you can see, the Spackle adds depth & richness to the paint. This one is not done yet, but we need to wait until tomorrow for this layer to dry as we want to give it a nice and crisp feel.
