Organizational Irony

May 9, 2005

My wife set up a display board of faux finish brushes to photograph for our home staging and decorative painting business that we started in Southern California. It was one of many "staged" images we created to generate the look of our website, but unlike some of the others, it was quite useful. Whenever we needed a specific brush it was easy to locate (which, I suppose, is why peg board is so popular in garage workshops across America). But, once a brush left the board it rarely made it back on to it, so the effectiveness of the peg board quickly fell victim to our moderately disorganized working habits— the irony of this is easy to spot, as we were in the business of helping people become (or at least, for the duration of an open house, look) more organized.
