I cannot believe that after 14 months I am finally DONE!!! I am floored. This is definitively the largest and most complex painting I’ve ever done. It’s the first time I’ve painted on large canvas. My typical medium is small square wooden blocks. It was a learning curve, for sure!
My car is 10 years old – it’s a 2008 Honda Civic Coupe which I bought new [my first and only new car]. For the past year I’ve been noticing weird, ugly, white spots appearing on the roof. Last week I googled what the spots could be and learned they’re caused by sun damage.
I thought I was done with this project, but after living with the girl cave AC cabinet for the past few months I decided I didn’t like the blue I’d used to spray paint the laser-cut wooden door panels.
Not REAL grass, but it looks real *nods*. And it’s very soft on the feet. I love it much better than the ugly gravel! I found it on Amazon. It comes in tons of sizes but I decided to buy 2 of the 31/3 x 5″ pieces for $42 each. I LOVE IT!!!
About a year ago I spent a few weeks patching the back wall of our basement cage with Drylok hydraulic cement and painting on 2 coats of Drylok masonry waterproofer. It held up really well until this past March when we had two back to back major floods, once which left our basement under 4″ of water.
About 4 years ago I washed the green algae and moss off our plastic [came with the house] yard fence. The fence gives privacy to both back yards belonging to our condo building. It’s taken about 4 years for it to get gross again. I only cleaned our part… sorry Kathy! It took 2 hours of constant scrubbing with a sponge dipped in white vinegar and hot water, followed by hosing off each section as I went. It was exhausting, but it HAD to be done
Ever since building the catio in 2015, it hasn’t needed much care. Last summer I swapped out the chicken wire for welded wire and added a homemade sleeping box. The catio still looks great and has no structural damage, despite some carpenter bees spending an uncomfortable amount of time investigating it lately. But some of the staples had pulled out over the winter.
