The Free Game

7 Aug

This weekend at Ittybittybungalow I played a little game I like to call How Many Projects Can You Do For Fee? Here is what I won:

This heat grate  used to be covered in pink paint. I stripped it and two others with a can of spray stripper and a brass brush I already had.

I cleaned out the junk, then swept and washed the floor in the garage and then hung my tools and bike up on hooks that I already had.

I finally finished the scraping, painting and repairing the seats (except for one) on the patio set I bought this spring.

I hung up the new hose reel that I bought last month and trimmed the grass along the side of the house.

I also finished up the the little bit of unfinished backsplash that was left by the stove AND…. put the second coat of paint on the countertop!

After I painted the back hall and rehung this door it wouldn’t lock for like a week (that was a secert that I was not sharing on the internet) So I planed the door and tightened the hinges and wah-la. And yes, we still use the skeleton key.

I also never replaced the hardware on the milk door after painting. So I stripped them of thier paint crock-pot style and re attached them. I still have touch ups to do in this room as you can see.

Then I cleaned up the patio and planted some flowers in the blue pots that were given to me. (ok, that cost me about three bucks)

I also went pretend shopping, where I  measured for things and shopped for the best deal to pick out everything for next weekend ( I get paid Friday) So there you have it everything I did this weekend!

    Very nice! I love playing that game too. It’s so satisfying. This weekend, I finished putting in all the compost and used some of the old bricks we had to make a little walkway through one of the gardens. I’ll have to post pix. And I’m envious of your organized garage. I’m so tired of living in chaos.

    Love your milk door.
