I purchased a glass coffee table on the weekend. Love the traditional lines. Before:
One more piece in the puzzle (of the living room).
Last thing is the love seat. I had it recovered a couple years ago and have some left over fabric. With the new chairs, it is too low now. The upholsterer is going to add longer legs and a new, longer skirt. Good thing I'm a pack rat and saved the fabric!
My sister (in-law) Donna was out on Wednesday night to celebrate my birthday and have a sleep over. We ran around to our usual haunts and at Loblaws they had their BBQs on sale ... so I bought one.
Thank goodness nothing was open on Canada Day ... we needed the whole day to put it together. The instruction book said it would take 30 minutes ..... so 2 1/2 hours later we had it together. We are both handy girls so I don't think it could have been done faster.
Taking it for a test run .... chicken and asparagus!!!
Tip: Donna says her father always sprinkles garlic powder or garlic salt on the BBQ when he fires it up .... it drives the neighbours wild because it smells so good. Nice neighbour!!!!!!
Hi. I live just outside Toronto, Ontario, and am interested in home design and DIY on a budget. I am in my 5th house since becoming single again ... my 10th home since leaving my childhood home - I obviously love the moving process. I also quilt, scrapbook, and love to cook, and spend time with my family.
