just another bertil fridhagen resurrection
we had reupholstered our dining room chairs about 4 years ago. we used fabric.
the chairs were designed by Bertil Fridhagen
manufactured in Sweden (1962) by Bodafors
the fabric upholstery has lost the battle against kids and their spills. it looked as old as the chairs.
the original Swedish plywood tells the tale of staple holes from past reupholster jobs. this time I used my pneumatic stapler.
the bright white vinyl will wipe clean the next time orange juice is spilled. at $3 a yard it was also a good fit with the budget.
and for the lady guests of AMH...
we now have a locking bathroom door! although the locking door is offset by the lack of toilet. hoping it will be back for the weekend.
I was in a movie:
about six years ago I rented my 1967 ford econoline van out to a movie production co. they also offered me a small non-speaking part in the movie. I was a cop. I was surprised the movie was released on DVD. last I heard, they had run out of $ and owed a bunch of people. I did have to go reclaim my van when they never sent the second rental payment. months later I started getting notices from the city of SF regarding unpaid parking tickets they had acquired in my van. I did have a rental agreement to get out of the parking tickets. thanks to the magic of netflix, I was able to see the movie.
yet another trip to Rio's on the east side:
I noticed she was working TWO electronic devices at once! the daughter was enjoying the free wi-fi to watch youtube tutorials on her itouch/phone for the game she was playing on the Ninetndo.
I'd observed the servers there mixing and shaking the caipirinhas enough I figured it was time I took control. mixed and shook them myself. I don't need no stinkin' shake weight. Rio's provides the set-ups, pour a healthy bit of chacaca and insert your own stylin' shake moves.
close to the heart shake
over the shoulder shake... and enjoy!
they also gave us some live oak hefewizen
she LOVED the sweet potato and mascarpone empanadas. we had two orders.
this week: cheap sink faucet replacement
I bought these faucets off ebay for about $20 each. they have not held up well and I'm about to put my plumbing hat on and swap them out. this will be the third set of faucets in the master bath. the sinks also took us three tries before we got it right.
