Last Tuesday I posted my first progress report on the tall bookcase in the girl cave. I had gotten the bookcase body primed, and had put 1 coat of primer on the 5 shelves. Since then I’ve gotten 6 coats of red on one side of the shelves, and 3 coats on one side of the bookcase body.
For the past month our bathroom ceiling fan has been rattling. It’s a VERY annoying sound. Two years ago I installed a timer for it, and we leave it on for an hour during/after our showers. This morning I’d finally had enough!!! I got the ladder out, climbed up, and started dismantling it.
While hubby was trying to replace the water filter under the kitchen sink at lunch today something went wrong and it flooded the kitchen. I came home and helped dry everything out. When I pulled the fridge away from the wall I found a huge colony of black mold on the wall!!! I cleaned up the mold and cut holes in the drywall to make sure the mold wasn’t inside the wall.
One of the projects on my 2017 Projects List is to paint the tall bookcase in the girl cave high gloss red. This past Sunday I got one coat of BIN primer on. Today I put on the 2nd coat of primer. I decided on Benjamin Moore Exotic Red as the color, and bought a quart of high gloss on Sunday as well.
The workbench I bought last year at Home Depot was very affordable [$70] but I have been having issues lately using it for stained glass work [which is what I bought it for]. The cutting oil soaks in and makes ugly marks and when water from my glass grinder gets on it it swells up.
A few months ago I completed 10 Annoying Projects in 10 Days. I realized there’s sort of a never ending list of annoying projects, so from time to time you’ll see a post about them. Today’s post includes the always awful “pull the stove out & clean behind it”. YUK!!!
Or “How I broke our garbage disposal the same exact way I broke it 5 months ago” *SIGH*. And once again it was hubby who came to the rescue!
I completed 19 DIY projects in 2016 🙂
I have 11 DIY projects planned for 2017 🙂
When we first got Birdie she was so slender and graceful. Now she’s just fat. The vet has been telling me for 2 years to put her on a diet, but I never did… But today a cat shelf in the downstairs hallway ripped right of the wall as Birdie launched off it onto a higher platform *face palm*.
