Steph is continually on the lookout for new products that easily solve a simple problem. This screen patch is one of those products.
The very first Mother Daughter Projects DIY video and post was re-screening Steph's porch screen. That was almost six years ago and in all that time, the screening never required a repair, well, that is until after Tosh joined the household back in November!
Tosh is a retired racing greyhound. There is a bit of a learning curve as the retired racers learn about doors and windows and all things house related. In Tosh's case, she didn't "see" the screen door and ended up putting a small hole in it.
Actually, Steph was a bit excited as she could finally try out this new screen patch kit!
We had some very thoughtful and helpful comments posted our video about the resin shed assembly. We though a couple of the comments had merit so we decided to implement them.
Here's what we did to improve the shed based on viewer comments.
One of the most frequent asked questions about the enclosed fan we installed in Steph's office (and in my sewing room) is "How do you clean the blades?"
Since Steph doesn't really clean, she's more of a tidier, cleaning the blades hasn't seem to be a priority for her! But since the question was asked, she set about to show you how it is done.
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.
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.
