I finally replaced the faucet and the drain. I won’t call this done as I have to caulk around the sink and the backsplash. I also have to find a way to attach the vanity to the wall. It is just sitting there loose. Getting the metal ring out of the sink drain was the most time consuming. I hope to get the sink caulked over the next couple of days. Once the sink is caulked then I have to remove and replace the caulking around the tub/shower. 1 month ago
Entries from everyone
I purchased an almost antique desk 2 weeks ago and used some wood filler in order to make the top smooth before I begin the painting.
Ahh. the painting. I have a pale terracotta paint on my dining room walls and I want to have a pop of color in the dining room so my choices for paint for the desk are bright violet, teal, or royal blue. I’m leaning toward the violet because I have turquoise and chocolate brown in several places in the room. 1 month ago
I have finally started working on replacing the bathroom sink faucet. The handle for the hot water broke at least a year ago if not longer. The hot water could be turned on but it was messy looking. I bought a faucet a couple of months ago, and I have been putting off doing the replacement because I wasn’t sure how to get the old faucet out. I started yesterday. It will probably take me a couple of days to complete because of everything else going on right now. It will get done. I will hopefully tackle the toilet next. I have new guts for the toilet longer than I have had the faucet. I want to get that installed before the toilet starts running. I don’t want to pay for water we are not really using. 1 month ago
I’ve been out walking around the house. I have discovered a lot of fixing and mending that I need to do. I am going to work on the list a little at a time and hopefully by next fall I will have the majority of it done. 1 month ago
My granddaughter has to wear a uniform to school. The school requires a uniform headband if one is to be worn. We purchased a head band, and after she wore it several times the cloth covering was coming loose. I put it up for several weeks. I finally got the glue gun out yesterday and fixed it. It took all of 3 minutes after the glue gun warmed up. I am so glad to have finally fixed this and again wondered what takes me so long? 2 months ago
I was rooting around in my bedroom jewelry corner and started gathering up things to get rid of. I found a bracelet that I’ve had for more than 42 years. Long ago I lost a charm off the bracelet and replaced it with a charm of my baby son in some kind of metal. (It was a 70’s thing to do.) Another charm had dislodged itself and I had procrastinated about tightening the jump ring. It’s now back together. Yay! 3 months ago
A couple of weeks ago I bought a groovy pair of genie pants – cheap, cheerful and super comfy!
Yesterday when I went to put them on to go out for lunch, I noticed the stitching had come apart at the drawstring join.
Usually when I notice something like this I take off the garment and leave it on the chair in the bedroom, to await repair. Instead of this prolonged irritation, I got the sewing kit out and stitched the pants up whilst they were on me!
5mins later I was good to go. :-) 3 months ago
After seeing Maggief927’s post that she got to sewing some buttons, I logged off and sewed the button back onto D’s shirt!
It wasn’t painful. It wasn’t hard. It’s done, at last! 3 months ago
She has 3 blouses for school that go with her uniform. I found her blouse plus a button taped to a piece of paper on the dining room table when I got home the other night. I finally got out the white thread and sewed the button back on before I left the house for work today. It took about 5 minutes. I am happy I did it right away. 3 months ago
I fixed the pulled out rods, by securing the rods into the studs like they should have been originally. I added a peg board with hooks in different sizes for my Granddaughter to hang her purses, scarves, and bags. She was so excited and spent 1 hour arranging and rearranging her purses. I also added a hook for her to hang her bathrobe up on the outside of the closet. I am tired of finding that on the floor. 1 fix out of the way. 3 months ago
