This group has been soooooo slow lately.

What was the last thing you fixed yourself?  Have/had you ever done it before?

I'm currently patching holes in sheetrock.  Dh pulled a bunch of boxes and now I have 4 holes on 4 different colored walls....so yeah, painting will be next.

I'm really good at patching.  SLOW.  But really good.

I've patched my walls, hung ceiling fans, painted, helped repair lawn mowers, siding on our house, trimmed the inside, chalked the bathtub, etc. I give all the thanks to my Vo Ag teacher who taught us a variety of skills 20+ years ago that I still use today!

Most recently, I fixed the length of my DD's dress for my sister's upcoming wedding. I still have to hem my dress.

As far as house projects go, I demolished kitchen walls to give us a more open floor plan, installed most of the flooring in our kitchen, dining room, and living room, measured for kitchen counters and backsplash tile, grouted the tile, painted kitchen and bathroom cabinets, and have done quite a bit of painting in the house. DH and I have been busy with our fixer upper this year.

I love being able to do minor alterations too.

I just "took in" a pair of dh's jeans last week.

Starting 2 projects this week....refinishing a chrome toilet handle to rubbed oil bronze and turning carpet scraps into bound area rugs.  So far I'm in it for less than $65...most of which was the cost of the rug binding.
