Thank you, Fred!

I'm finally getting around to posting some pictures, which show how much more we have to do. At this point, it really has been the Royal "we" because my husband is doing all the work... (me) (him)

Welcome Natalie, you'll find out that these people know their stuff. I'm still learning and can't help too much, but I've got a 3" pile of printed threads pointing me which way to go. I empathize with your hubby...I could even teach him some of the new cuss words I've coined over the last year. Still, I'm trying to figure out why my wife is in a quandry over the upholstery to select while I'm at this stage...

Ooh, don't try and figure it out. Let her obsess, keeps her out of your way...

Laughing out loud!

Oh, man. That is too funny! Well, I finally got in there and did help with staining some of the cabinets while he shaved some rivets. It was a lovely afternoon!

And, I might add that yesterday I spent about three hours calculating yardages & scouring Michael Levines for the right fabric. And found some good canvas for $2/yard. Made the $10 for parking worth it!

I think I saw tour buses there (LA's garment district), so maybe if you really want to keep you wife busy you can send her out here to shop for fabric.

Hi again Natalie! It's nice to hear you're having such fun. Personally, I get my fabric from eBay. My last was 35yds of silk for $30 and $20 of that was postage! My wife doesn't do Airstream technical, she likes to turn up and get a Jack thrust into her hand! Lol! But that's just fine, she can unblock drains and pressure wash the patio which is a time credit to me and Moonstruck!

IF you get there early! We didn't get there until about 10:30 and the lot was full.

Having some trouble with the site tonight. I wanted to post an "almost after" - not quite done with the wood work, but my husband trimmed out the cabinets with aluminum and it looks great! (or at least we think so)Let's see if these photos work here. If not, I'll put in the photos folder.hmmmmm technical difficulties!

Thanks! Our neighbor sold us the table a few years ago. We used it as a kitchen table for a while and then moved it out to the garage, where it had been on its side and not being of much use. It's nice to have a new home for it, but unfortunately we had to take off the curvy legs.

But we're like its new incarnation!

No kidding, this is a fierce little habit! In the last 24 hours we've made 3 trips to OSH, and another trip to the ICI paint store. And that's just for the little stuff!
