Cleaning up around our yard I ran across the old grill, lightbulb!!! I have seen photos of people doing this and thought it always looked cute so off to the Depot I went.
The selection of perennial plants was limited so I’m not very happy with the look but maybe once they grow out it will look better.
Decided to add some lights and what a pain that was!! The watering can I used had a difficult spout so getting the lights through was not easy! First I had to make 10 holes bigger, then I had to find a long sturdy wire to thread in and wrap the lights around good enough to pull back through, took me awhile to think of cutting the first light on each end off to stop it from getting stuck at the hole and slipping off, but I finally got it. Phew! Done !
I had a blast making this for my niece! It must have looked pretty good since my nephews son went over and tried to play with it! He pulled the two top bars over so I had to hold them up with some extra cardboard till the end of the party.
I had to get creative for the grill since I went large in Jeep size! Use what you got!
We bought our house March 2017 and since then we have redone all the floors, took out a wall separating the living room and dining room, put an 6 foot bay window in, reinsulated most of the outside walls with new windows all well, made the porch into a sun porch, tore out the whole kitchen and started it over. We had to cut out ceilings in the stairways for my 6 foot son to not hit his head, lol, and bunch of other things. The main problem besides the plaster is the ceiling upstairs starts at 4 feet on one wall and gets to 7 at the other, both sides of the house, very bad for my back!!! , so we said we had to fix it.
We finally started the process,
We drew up the first set of plans yesterday and decided besides tearing off the whole roof we are also putting in a small addition to make it a completed straight four walls.
The finished house will be 30 x 32 and it will all be usable space!!!
My husband and I decided to do a live edge accent wall in the living room, we did it like a big puzzle, I haven’t decided what oil I want to use as a finish or how flat I want I want the look to be but, after lots of cutting and rearranging, this is the result.
