the walls and trim are painted

the light fixture is installed

the outlets have been replaced

all but one outlet has been replaced

The Problem: The screw that comes with the new outlet breaks in half while you’re trying to screw the outlet to the box leaving half of a screw stuck in the hole.

The Solution: Make yet another trip to the hardware store to buy a bit made for drilling into metal and cross your fingers that you’ll be able to drill the broken screw out of the hole. And if this doesn’t work? Give up and use the room for storage.
