Cute vintage 1953 trailer for sale! $6500

Stumped


I managed to get some stumps for sitting around the fire in our yard from a family friend a few years ago. I figured I should treat it somehow so they would last longer, but never got around to it. Now they are a bit old and icky, and I think there are bugs. Where was this Martha Stewart how-to when I needed it. Next time...


Tools and Materials
Electric sander
Tree stump
Sandpaper in extra-fine, fine, medium, and coarse grades
Wood filler
2 paintbrushes, 1 for primer and 1 for paint
Wood primer
Enamel paint
Hammer
3 to 4 furniture gliders

How-To
1. Using the electric sander, prepare the surface of the stump. Sand, changing from coarse to medium to fine paper, until the top is smooth.

2. If there are holes on the surface, use wood filler to conceal them. Let dry, and then rub the surface lightly by hand with fine sandpaper.

3. With a paintbrush, apply wood primer to top surface, painting from the outside edges inward to keep primer from dripping down sides. Let dry, then sand lightly by hand with extra-fine paper.

4. With other brush, apply enamel paint to top, again painting from the outside toward center. Let dry 2 to 3 days.

5. Sand lightly by hand with fine paper. Apply another light coat of enamel. Let dry for at least 2 days.

6. To create feet, hammer furniture gliders into base.


* I still think some kind of sealer should be used around the sides for outdoor use. This tutorial is for indoor decor

Nice deal on the grid


A 2 bedroom 1.5 bath home on 23rd & H st with pool. I will say it looks like they forgot the upper cabinets in the kitchen, and the half bath would probably make me dizzy, but overall it's a nice place in a nice area. $299,900
