He can fix most anything.
In only about ten minutes,
much of that time even was devoted to fighting with an old water valve,
he had the leak fixed.
They had also brought some goodies for me -
SEVENTEEN burlap sacks!
I have plans for these.
Some little footstools are going to get reupholstered.
I also have some old grungy looking tabletop ironing boards ($1)
that I've been picking up at the thrift store.
Initially, I was hoping to make them into shelves,
The old covering was removed.
(and tossed, it was icky).
The burlap was folded around the board and stapled.
A tab was stapled to the back of the board,
so that it can easily be hung on the wall.
What do you think?
With a little hot glue and some vintage buttons,
we'll have some unique pushpins to add to the memo boards.
The memo boards are heading to my booth at the antique mall.
I am hoping to be busy, busy, busy.
An empty booth would also make the move so much easier.
Filling my booths and filling my shop are next week's projects.
