It doesn't happen very often, but we sometimes have to revisit a project. This time, we had to tweak the PVC pipe gate due to damage it sustained.
With few exceptions, there are very few unannounced visitors to Steph's backyard, but recently there have been a few neighbors back there. It was nothing bad, they had come into the yard to look for their cat. Unfortunately, the gate was broken in the process. You see, the gate opens inward, but the neighbors pulled it out causing damage. The damage was extensive enough that we had to take it down to make repairs.
We are always on the lookout for new and innovated DIY products to try. Steph spotted this new product by DAP and thought it looked promising. She convinced me we needed to give it a try in a head to head product challenge. DAP Eclipse Wall Repair Patch verses standard spackling.
While once again using a plastic scraper we got from Amazon in yet another project, we got to thinking we needed to share our other favorite Amazon "must have" tools. We put together a list of five tools we find ourselves using time after time on projects--that are all under $20! There's a bonus tool that comes in at $27 that we've had since Sears was in the business of selling tools!
It's been a year since we first used the 30% vinegar/salt/dishwashing soap solution, but the weeds were back. Are they new weeds or ones that were not killed the first time around? We don't really know, but we do know, that in a couple of areas the weed growth has been effectively stunted since the first application.
That first post has been extremely popular and has generated so many comments and questions. In this video/post, we answer some of those questions.
Here's part 2 of using this method.
