DIY Project Parade

It’s that time of week to share your latest DIY projects!  We’ve been doing a LOT of things around our home this past week. For those who have asked, I do have a regular job as a medical transcriptionist for a local health care facility so for some of what I’m showing you below, there just hasn’t been time to do a tutorial (the wood shed Mr. DIY’s building or venting the bathroom fan). I’m sure you understand, right? We’re always here to answer questions though!  Anyway, here are some sneak peeks that prove our crazy week.  Pardon me while I step away from the computer for a nap. 🙂

It’s time for grape harvesting (although we don’t have time for grand plans just some fresh grapes and grape juice).

The grapes smell so good, taste so sweet and are bursting with juice…

(We never did do pavers underneath yet. Thanks to Krylon‘s spray stain, the wood is protected!)

Some other goodies from the garden were picked…

Building an ottoman…

and staining feet…
Bun feet, TransTint and foam brushes are available at Rockler. See more about the products and technique I used at The DIY Club. 

Mr. DIY with the assistance of his talented father-in-law, Butch, is building a wood shed for firewood…

and vented the bathroom fan through the attic and out the side of the house…

Cleaned for photos and had an interview with our local newspaper…

We’ve decorated for Christmas (details coming up in the future) and packed some of it back up…

Scrubbed down a thrifty find…

Took care to protect the floor using felt weather stripping, Gorilla Glue and felt furniture protectors (see the DIY Club for more details)…

Even Lalka pitched in.  (More on this project coming up in a few weeks)

Some of these projects are finished and I’ll be sharing more soon.  🙂

Today is the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks. Remembering those who lost their lives that day. I’m so thankful for our military members and their loved ones who have sacrificed so much in the fight to protect our country and our freedoms.
