Thirty years ago my bedroom walls were covered in posters of pop stars and art schools. I was no allowed to paint my walls because they were paneled. The cardinal rule of wood is that it should never be painted.
Fast forward to this week. Sticky bits of tape that held up pictures of Adam Ant and others are still on those slopped paneled walls. It was my job to get them off with out damaging the panelling.
Scratched head. Light bulb.
A rubber cement pik-up. It worked well. It worked quickly. It didn't damage the wood at all. That little bit of crafty knowledge really came in handy.
