In an effort to make the apartment smell less like fresh paint, I plugged in one of those outlet air freshener things. But {as usual} the "thing" was smarter than me and this is what my floor looked like a few hours later....

The "runny smear" {I apologize if my word choice created less than pleasurable visuals for you} is the scented oil mixing with the paint and creating a huge sticky mess. It took days for the mess to dry out enough that I could fix it. Luckily this gave me time to dig through the dozens of Tupperware containers of paint our landlord stashed under the kitchen sink.

From my hours of HGTV watching, I whipped out some sanding and painting skills that would have put Nate Berkus to shame. Good as new!
