A glitch in the plans - the old stud finder can't find studs through this second layer of texture because it was put on over the top of the previous texture layer. The walls are all about 1/4" thicker after this latest architectural transaction. I hunted around, read reviews, and ordered a new Zircon that includes a "deep scan" setting. Arrives tomorrow.

To stay on track I mulled over the project and realize I'm still blocking the hall-to-den doorway because I need to finish painting trim in the hall. The tape is already down on the floor so can finish this pretty quickly then liberate the hall and let the dogs through all of the house. We will all be happier that way. I dressed in my paint clothes (saggy paint-daubed jeans I hold up with a belt and saggy paint-daubed old library t-shirt) instead of wearing the new t-shirt that arrived yesterday. It's message is "I was normal three dogs ago." I saw a photo of a friend wearing the same message and knew it was perfect for me (since I'm on my fourth dog here in this house, with a two-dog overlap).
