I'm still working on the re-doing of my room,
and today's main plan was to install
the two wall shelves I bought,
and then clean up and start organizing.
I started that at 2.
It is now 10pm, and I
I don't understand!
First, I screwed
the screws in the wall.
Without the backplate that you put the shelf on.
Second, I have these plastic
drywall anchors, similar to these
that I am supposed to affix to the wall.
After some time, I managed to screw the
backplate to the wall with those damn things.
Except, it wasn't flush to the wall...
I had the long part against the wall (horizontally),
and thought maybe I put the screw
in backwards...maybe the horizontal side
goes against the back plate.
So I un-screwed the entire thing,
IT WAS EVEN WORSE.
Still shaky because its not
against the wall,
and because I can't put the damn
screws in straight.
Plus, both times
the shelf leaned forward,
so anything slides off.
I AM SO ANGRY!
I spent ALL day
trying to do ONE of two shelves.
I want them on my wall, dammit!
