First off, this week has been a roller coaster of emotions! Tessa got up and was so excited for KDG. on Monday and then promptly told me when I picked her up at the end of the day....... that she wasn't going back. She cried for 40 minutes at bedtime but got right up the next morning and went to school. She is a little trooper. I didn't hurt that I promised her a notebook if she went to school the next day. She's a cheap bribe! I searched for the prettiest blue sparkly notebook I could find and she loved it. She has been great ever since. She was even playing school today after school.
God is good! ANd once again thank you all for your prayers and encouragement!
So Monday was packed with projects so my mind wouldn't focus on the silence in my house.....I even did laundry! I really must have needed to have something to do!
One of the projects I worked on was my front railing that leads up to the house.
I hate that railing! Someone just took some black pipe and made a railing. They obviously wanted cheap not chic.
What do you think of it now??
Make sure you check your numbers on BOTH sides...... you don't want 461 and 164 on the other! Not that I know why you need to be careful of this mistake!
I just used some eye screws to thread my cable through...I did use tiny zip ties around the cable at each eye screw to keep the boards where I wanted them. I used black so they disappear pretty much next to the brown eye screw.
and then used cable clamps to secure the cable around the pipe. I did have to spray paint the cable, eye screws, and clamps so they looked a little more vintage.
The pallet wood got white washed so it would be a bigger contrast with the numbers. I just realized I should Sharpie the screw heads so they are the same color!
Now my next question for you is.....should I leave them alone or add something to the bottom?
I was thinking about adding some small flower pots but then that would make me have to water them and my time is at a premium now so not sure how dead plants would be too inviting...
Always being renewed,
