This past week I’ve rolled up my sleeves and dealt with long overdue fixes. One was removing a jammed sliding patio door out of its slot, then replacing it back on the wheels again. Thank goodness for my son’s strength to help, and now I have a working door!
Another was getting a toilet to flush again. It’s been out of commission for some time because I was afraid to crack the tank if I removed it. But enough was enough, and honestly, 10 minutes later, we had the toilet off and fixed.
So while I haven’t blogged about any of those things, there is a hidden message in there that I really ought to blog about!
Then there’s two gates I landed from a neighbour. One has already been installed on my garden shed and the other will be put to use as well. Now that was unexpected! So this will become a before and after as soon as I pick up a few flowers to fill the window box planters.
But I did share a project this past week I’m thrilled with… and it was SO easy to do!
I recently purchased two resin wicker chairs that really look like the real deal! But they were a little too plain for my liking, so it was time to grain sack stripe the chair cushions to give it a vintage vibe lift!
This post shares my super easy technique to get a super smooth, seamless look with a slightly weathered appearance so it appears like an authentic grain sack fabric.
So I until I can whip up a few more projects for next week, let’s get inspired with these fabulous repurposed project features from last week’s party post…
