Upon close inspection of the 'Nautical Knots' picture I got from The Gardens Hospice Shop yesterday, I noticed it's background was a map of two 'old worlds'.
I have a big copper wall hanging with the same 'old world' design.
Only, it's been under Griffin's bed for quite some time, as it fell off the wall in the middle of the night months ago.
It was just too heavy and the frame fell apart.
So last night I got it out and started pulling it apart:
Anyone got any ideas on the next step???
I'm thinking I need to cut off the staples... then lay down a decent, but not too thick ... REAL wood panel and go from there with a small 'frame' of some sort.
If I add too much it will again be too heavy to stay on the wall.
NOW... because I'm a bit of a shit stirrer (can't help myself sometimes)... I give you Dante last night:
ABOVE: Steve and Bex have a 'secret' stash of chocolate in their room. Occasionally they bring out a LITTLE piece to share with us ... and last night Dante got his hands on Bex's chocolate.
He couldn't get enough of it!
I thought it was only his 2nd time having something like that, but Steve told me he's been giving him little tastes of chocolate for months! NOW I don't feel bad about giving him that biscuit to slobber on the other day. Rest assured though, he DOES NOT get that sort of stuff every day. And baby gets his teeth brushed every day too, in case anyone is worried about his teeth.
Today: Get a steak 'n' kidney stew going in the crock pot. Housework. Maybe go to the mall, followed by Hospice Shop Duty.
AND my Mum and Ron are due back here sometime today too.
So. Better get going and get that stew on, and make the lunches, get the washing on... bla bla bla.
BLONDIE: it WAS a coffee table many years ago! I don't think we have the room in our lounge for a large coffee table ... still thinking.
MARKD60: Yeah, I thought that would be the best option too. Just not sure how to attach it to the shitty particle board without adding too much weight. I don't want to try and prise the copper off the chipboard in case I ruin it.
It's too nice to ruin.
I am now off to do 5-10-15 + 10 ANY guesses on what that means???
la la lah lah...
Come on! What do ya think 5-10-15 + 10 means???
Whoever guesses right first will win a gorgeous Mug Rug! Of your choice... from what I have already made. OK?
5 pm and I'm just home from the Hospice Shop. Got TREASURE... you just know I did eh?
Some interesting 'guesses' .... I will be giving a Mug Rug out at the end of the night. Check back tomorrow to see who/how many guessed right!
Treasure will be shown tomorrow too... cos I'm busy ... Mum and Ron are back and dinner won't cook itself.
YUM YUM: ONYA. Knew someone wouldn't be able to help themselves and have a say. I'm thinking of giving Dante Diet Coke tomorrow.
End of Day: well yet another lovely day done and dusted. Finally off to bed, and it's actually early for me!
