Vacation Part 1: Finished upholstery, master bath and cleaning

| October 23, 2019

The subject line is probably misleading since “vacation” and “finishing the upholstery and cleaning” probably are contradictory … but the few days at a time updates on the condo this past year needed to get finished up before our winter renters arrive. Thankfully Brenda and I scheduled a couple weeks in October to be in […]

Notes on a few more master bathroom and upholstery updates

| September 25, 2019

Thankfully both Brenda and I have always enjoyed the hands-on projects. […]

I’m not sure about tackling something as big as a couch and loveseat (slideshow below), but perhaps a couple chair pillows and condo dining room chair cushions are do-able? My projects in the past have […]

Recovered cushions on newly painted heirloom wicker chairs

| July 25, 2017

Last month I spent quite a bit of time prepping and painting the wicker chairs passed down from generation to generation (see post).  This past weekend I used recovering and adding filler to the old cushions as an opportunity to learn a little bit more about sewing — with Brenda‘s Sailrite machine. I’ve tackled a […]
