With all that hot weather, perhaps your next project might be a 'horizon' or infinity pool in the garden
No wonder you got sniggers. I can’t understand why you didn’t put duct tape round the right one as well to get a matching pairmoonshadow wrote: ↑
Yes... that is duct tape on my left shoe. The sole was coming off and I'm generally too frugal to throw them out, however I use them for old work shoes.
I went to Walmart this morning to purchase a Phillips bit for my drill... I wore this outfit, taped shoe and all. A few snickered, but I wasn't sure if it was the skirt or the tape... hey.. at least nobody can say I'm all hung up over vanity!
What can I say... I'm just a hillbilly at heart...
Pantry shelf added today. I also installed a new overlay of wallboard to cover that hideous mess behind the refrigerator.
At the time of photograph, the wall outlet was dangling in the basement stairwell.
It has since been returned to its rightful location after completing a fresh square hole and utilizing and electrical "old work box".
As for the poster, it's actually a fabric poster of unknown origin, it appeared at some point in my home back when I lived in Bedford VA 20 years ago. It's a possible leftover from "the ex", but nobody really knows for sure....
It simply appeareth... perhaps someday it may disappear into the same void...
I love a good Johnny Cash song... Glad to hear you aren't stealing stuff.
But seriously, that's the way to go, work on it slowly yourself. I'd much rather buy a place that needs a little work, and have the money to slowly make it happen, than buy a place that's perfect and have no extra cash each paycheck.
Anyway, keep up the good work!

as only you will know the faults of your work and how you covered it up !
One thing don't make it obvious like that Winchester House in San Jose California 13 steps going
up to a blank ceiling & doors opening to walls !
For the sake of livable space - using the Mother of Invention method - works for me !
My grandfather was a Master Builder - one solo craftsman building an entire house with occasional
aid of others i.e. cement work and high level roofing rafters.
This all in the era after cookie cutter row housing 30s-40s.
Nice read of the accomplishments of Moonshadow - keep it up ***

Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !
