Bwahahahahahahahaha! Noooooooo, I have never done that intentionally.
I will say that my favorite building we worked on in DC, when I was employed by Valley, has a crap ton of badly woodgrained parquet panels with many a va jay jay to be seen throughout. But that's what you get when you have twenty different people working on something.....I didn't do any of those either.

Looks awesome! Only that gap in the top of the arch? The fact that that isn't level across the front is going to keep me up all night. Nothing you can do about it though.

Darn you! Now I cannot stop focusing on that! I considered filling it, but the part on the right moves quite a bit. It is distracting,I agree.

I'm grandfathering it in, the house is 200yrs.old.

It will be top coated tomorrow, letting it sit a day because it still felt tacky.

I didn't bring up the tiles,honestly because I didn't feel like coning back to fix them every three months.


Michael Tust that tape is the best. No bleeds,easy removal,no wall damage. I would buy that tape. I wouldn't recommend it being so wide makes it really heavy....because I put it on my wrist like a bracelet and pull the tape....made my wrist hurt.
