A Few Photos of Our Home and Garden

Harvesting grapes time!

My husband planted four different kinds of grapes a few years ago, and has been babying them along. We are fortunate enough to get irrigation here in the city. And boy, do the grapes love it! Not bad for AZ.  And they taste good too!

Coffee Table made from Old Trundle Bed Frame

Well, I had this old trundle bed frame sitting out in my yard for four years. One day I thought I might do a little rearranging of junk (true junkers rearrange never throw away right?) Anyway....I thought that frame would make a great table!  I had some salvaged wood kicking around so my husband cut and secured the boards to fit just right on the frame. I bought the metal strip things (sorry, I don't know the name, I just liked the design and purpose of them) at Home Depot. I put down some black pastic and layed the metal strips on it and then poured some mueratic acid on and then covered for a few hours. Then set the strips in the sun to cure. PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL WITH THAT ACID!!!!!! WEAR A FACE MASK AND USE OUTSIDE AND NO CHILDREN AROUND!!!!Read directions!
 Okay, the strips were rusted and ready to apply to the table. I also sprinkled a little acid on the screws to rust them up. Screwed then into each little hole. Perfect!  Then brushed on some clear satin varnish.  It turned out pretty darn nice! Don't you think?  I hope my info. was clear. This was a fun project. Cheap and easy just like I like it!
Thanks for stopping by.
