Spring into it!
Spring is happening so fast this year for us, so far *knock on good wood* no late frost to kill the buds!
So we have had some good flowers up to now... I have been working on the projects as usual just because I don't mention it doesn't mean it's not happening...I have been slow on progress tho..
I have changed my Mifi service so now I'm u against a lower data allowance and that means less photos uploaded so on my trips to Lowes I take my laptop and upload photos while Im there using their free guest Wifi however it is slow...it takes twice as long as my Verizon Wifi..but FREE is fast enough!
I am hoping to get in at least ONE spring trip am cooking up some possible locations without so much driving involved as for some reason gas has hopped back up around here, and less driving means more birding, hiking, and sightseeing!
So one more finished project is the bench I made from wood on my scrap pile, its just a simple wooden bench to sit down and put on or take off shoes...and some coat hooks. The end legs are made up of some of the cabinet doors I got off the free pile 2 yrs ago at the habitat store! I've used almost every single one of them I got like 16 doors of various sizes. Most of them went to build a cover for the water heater it has not been painted yet so when I get it painted Ill show you the finished project on that...
The top of the bench is made up of some really heavy duty 2 x 8's previously used in the house for shelving!
I have been for a few weeks, building this vanity for the bathroom,,,,also made up of scrap and free stuff...I finally got it into the bathroom and yesterday I put the top on it.
I put 3 coasts of Marine Varnish on the top so I hope it will be water proof enough...
This is the sink I Picked up at Habitat Store...and I purchased the faucet on sale at Lowes...there again its el'cheapo....hope it will last at least a couple years!
and installed the sink!!
I finished off the backsplash with the left over tile from the tub surround tile, I would rather have left it without a backsplash but in the long run I think I'll be happy I did put the tile on as it will prevent water damage to the wall....and that's why I'm at Lowes today to get some Grout Caulk...I have only a few seams of grout to do SO not mixing up a batch just for that.
Hung the same Mirror back up what was in here before....I have to grout that tile, put the handle on the cabinet door, put on the toilet seat and I think Ill paint over the electric outlet same as wall color I put in a almond ones they look awful so Ill paint it and the wall switch...now all I need is water and LET"S keep our FINGERS crossed my plumbing work doesn't leak!!
The vanity is a 36 x 22 x 34 tall....I'm pretty happy with it ---- its a one of a kind!!
