Last week I wrote about sorting through the filing cabinet which you can read about here. The culling continued and we no longer require the 2 drawer filing cabinet as the small number of retained files are now accommodated in the filing drawer of the desk.
One of the things we located in our cleaning up and decluttering was a poster showing plants which are environmental weeds in our region. We acquired this some years ago and while it has proved to be a useful reference from time to time, it had remained rolled up in the bottom drawer of the filing cabinet.
The poster was looking a bit the worse for wear but we decided to mount it where it was easily visible and useful as a quick guide.
Using PVA glue, I attached the poster to a piece of plywood. This was the old backing of the mirror on a recently restored dressing table. It was not suitable for reusing for the mirror as the plywood had splintered around the nail holes when removed. However, I had kept it for possible future reuse. I did not foresee that it would be needed quite so soon.
I placed weights on top of the poster and left it to dry for 24 hours. GMan then trimmed the excess plywood off using a jigsaw and we have screwed it to a door in the workshop.
We have created a quick ready reference in a location where it is likely to be needed and reused material that might otherwise have been discarded.
