Overkill on mounting cupboards is a good idea. I know of a woman who is now suffering from life-long injuries due to someone doing the opposite, which resulted in the cupboards plus all contents falling on to them. It would be good if we can get to see the final outcome of your project.
That sounds like quite the exercise, @TedBear! I'm glad you've got it sorted, though.
What are your plans for today, applying a topcoat?
That sounds like it would be it, but unfortunately I have made other plans for the day, so it will go back in the "have to back to that" pile now. Probably for a week or 2 because I am having a medical issue (minor op) seen to in the next few days, which will need recovery time. I guess my DIY fix will be limited to following the activities in this Workshop Community.
All the best for your operation @TedBear and a very speedy recovery.
This is great. I agree that the white frame makes a perfect interface between the smooth house wall and the rough timber. And recycling the old wheel-nut brace was genius. A work of art that is also useful.
Thanks for the good wishes, Jason & Mitchell. My sense of pride wouldn't let me leave the gate at primer stage for 2 weeks, so I got up early this morning (Monday) and put a coat of white over it, so it looks presentable. I can finish off properly when I am back, up and running.
Great to hear @TedBear.
Look after yourself, and fingers crossed, you'll be up and running in no time.
What's everyone up to this weekend?
I've been working on a green wall similar to the D.I.Y. artificial plant wall by @Nikkaz. It's coming along nicely, and I'm putting the finishing touches on it at the moment. I'd be interested to hear our members' thoughts on the use of artificial plants around the home and garden. Personally, I'm really impressed with the quality of our UN-REAL 100 x 100cm Luxury Artificial Hedge Tiles, and from a few feet away, you'd be hard-pressed to tell they are not real. They've really changed my opinion of using artificial greenery around the home.
I look forward to seeing all your projects and hearing about what you have been working on!
