Power Tools

I may have purchased a new tool to add to my repertoire

Something I have wanted for a time

A staple gun! And it has already been put to work which is good because my soldering iron and heat gun are still in their boxes! (I will use them though, I promise)

Before

The kitchen chairs I covered last year were sadly covered in ground-in weetbix and beetroot stains. So I bought some vinyl/oilcloth type fabric and fixed them up. I’m planning a serious make-over for these chairs.

I also had The Atlas make me a board from some spare wood and covered it with this teatowel I love. I even loved it enough to iron it before I stapled. My mama will be pleased!

I had seen it ages ago in a shop and couldn’t find it again until I spotted it in a wee knitting shop in Karori while we were being refugees from the eq.

Pretty pleased my efforts. Now I’m looking around for what else I can staple.
