Deck Tales

I know, I know!  4 MONTHS SINCE MY LAST BLOG!!!  What can I say, I've been busy...and procrastinating...and, and...that's all I got.  Anyway, let's get caught up on some happenings! If you grew up in the late 80s, you will catch the twist on words I used for my Title. My kids LOVED 'Duck Tales'.… Continue reading Deck Tales

Lego…For Adults

I know my grandson, my kids, my nieces and nephews, and my soon to be niece's husband (so is that like a nephew-in-law?) will appreciate this Blog. Along our driveway we had a fence...that was not well secured...that fell over and hit my SUV...the fence came out. However, we still needed something to keep the… Continue reading Lego…For Adults

Mudding and Taping -How Hard Can It Be?

I have a new appreciation for the entire industry of Drywall Professionals.  It's a skill; and it's a definite skill that I do not have. I thought perhaps our ensuite shower was a 'water saver' version.  Upon entering said shower, you had about 30 seconds to shower before the water turned from nice and toasty… Continue reading Mudding and Taping -How Hard Can It Be?

Earlier I had refinished an old ladder I had… Continue reading Closet Shelving – Nothin’ Fancy!

Last of the Bathroom Upgrades!!!

All I really had left to finish was to hang the cupboard doors which required new hinges, in black, and some lovely white knobs for contrast.  Then...the mirror.  I believe I saw on Pinterest where someone used wainscoting as trim, with some really pretty cornice squares for the corners, and glued it - with No… Continue reading Last of the Bathroom Upgrades!!!

Bathroom Upgrade Day 3, 4, 5 and 6!

Ready to tackle the clear coat!  But first, I had to re-sponge the areas I had to re-prime, after my sanding fiasco on Day 2.  That took 10 minutes and then I let it dry 2 full hours. I applied the first coat of Clear Coat, and as I mentioned on Day 1 of 'Bathroom… Continue reading Bathroom Upgrade Day 3, 4, 5 and 6!
