And now that the weather is getting cooler here in Virginia. I decided to swap my home office with our guestroom. I did this swap yesterday, so I'm still in the process of moving a couple items. I really like to change my office in the summer and winter, since I spend many hours a week in there - It's my frugal version of having a winter and summer vacation home ;)
The only thing that gets a bit difficult when rearranging or swapping an entire room, is moving pictures from one wall to another. I then realize how many little nail holes there are, and how many more I will make.
So to make this task easier, I keep a small box filled with the following items:
- Patch-goop like caulking or putty, a putty knife and sand paper to fill in the holes
- A cleaning towel, and one of those Mr.Clean Magic Erasers to cleanup any scuff marks
- A couple cups of the wall paint, for each room, in a safe resealable container along with a paint brush. Each container is labeled with the room's name (office, guestroom, ...)
- Also I keep a roll of masking tape in the box, this is useful for touch up painting.
Since I like to move things around often, having this stuff set aside in a box makes it easier.
