Re: What project do you want to tackle next?

After having recurring homelessness for over a year, I am finally settled into a suitable home with a long term lease. Since moving in February, we have realised there are many small projects we need to do. We have already affixed a mirror to the bedroom wall (no more OMG what am I wearing moments in public!), removed some overgrown roses and bushes from the yard (but I still have a knobbly bit in the ground I have to remove) and hung a handful of picture frames.

What's next? Well there are two projects next on the list.

Outside we have to prepare the yard over winter for spring planting.I have successfully killed everything I've tried to grow, however with the warragul community garden so close, I'm able to get great advice AND take my plant with me if I need to. The current list of plants I'm trying to keep alive is: one red hot poker (a gift from the WCG), six kale seedlings (I'm pretty sure they are dead, diagnosis today from WCG), one yukka in a plastic pot, one lemon tree and an array of rose bushes, hedges and flowers.

Inside we have to find a way to repair our dining room table. It's a 6 person glass table with 4 metal legs. Unfortunately when it was moved last, someone (not naming the removalist) twisted off a leg rather than unbolting it so only 3 legs have their metal discs attached to the table. The problem I have is that the metal leg has to be attached directly to the glass and I don't know how to do that properly and safely. So I'm here to learn.

My husband is handy but has a disability so spends his time repairing and building bikes for the disadvantaged - for free. The parts he can't use or frames and wheels he can't recycle are usually repurposed into my art obsession. He is currently resanding our coffee table to be either painted or stained (it's beautiful wood that's been painted over) - he's been at it over a couple of days and I expect it will take him a few weeks...

Welcome to Workshop @Sporky. It's wonderful to have you join the community. I'm sure you will find plenty of inspiration and information from other community members for your upcoming projects.

 

Feel free to post questions anytime. There's plenty of gardeners in the community who I'm sure would be happy to provide tips for keeping your plants alive! You might also like to start a new discussion about your table repair. And we'd also love to see progress shots of your projects so others can learn from what you're doing or make suggestions.

 

Please let me know if you ever need a hand getting the most from the site. Thanks again for joining us and for introducing yourself.
