Repairs

Two types of handyman. Fast and those that have to spend some days thinking things through. Then the work gets done slow and methodical. The work turns out good either way.

My husband is definitely the latter. I think it comes from his profession, he's an Electronics Tech, Navy trained... one just doesn't rush in and do things quickly and screw up a piece of multi-million-dollar equipment while at sea... because it could be weeks before a replacement part arrives.

he's getting there a little at a time. I'm doing what I can without his help. I just wish he would do just a little less thinking and a little more doing sometimes.

Hey travis.... go on youtube and search out "Sailrite's how to make a cushion" It's about 20 minutes long but it shows you exactly what to do. You'll need a stapeler of all things but man it works awesome.

oh and if you need to find real upholstery fabric at a discount go to http://www.newtoto.com/ look in their clearance but be sure to read the descriptions. Most upholstery fabric is 54 inches wide but some will sneak up on you that is smaller... also keep an eye out for the way the pattern runs. (avoid strips or plaids that are a pain to match up)

My goal is to take 1/8th hardboard liquid nail to the vinyl and then staple to the cushions. But ill take a look at the video to see if theirs are easier. Lol

What? No way. lol The video will show you how to make real upholstered cushions like the pros do it. It probably won't be easier.

Well, I gotta say it doesn't look too bad. I just hope the plywood doesn't make them too hard.

tile

We had the peel and stick in a small guest house, that we did not cool when not in use and the glue dried and it began to come up, we were told that even the peel and stick needs to be glued down, your tile job really looks good.
