Cell phones thrown in the trash...
Come on people! Not really! We had to use them for instructions!
All that to be said. WE GOT STUFF DONE!!
There were a few things around our apartment that most renters would call upon their landlord to fix. But we, being the people that don't like to do things the easy way, decided to take on the challenge of fixin' her up instead!
And so...our list looked something like this...
1. Replace back garage door.
2. Paint front door.
3. Replace handles on windows that had fallen off and/or needed Stone Cold Steve Austin to open.
4. Fix back screen door.
5. Rearrange living room for fall season (since we can only have our couch in one place during the summer due to the awesome window AC that we have pumpin' the cool air to keep us alive in this crazy place they call the Central Valley).
Check. Check. Check. Not so much check (but saved for another day). AND CHECK!!
Here are some pics from our "DIY Kinda Saturday"!
Naturally....as any sane DIY couple should...we started the day at the Farmers Market for a nice cup of coffee and...
From there...we got to business.
This was our old back garage door....please note the gapping empty whole in between the front and the back of the door. That is because it was hollow and basically made from construction paper.
Project 1...COMPLETE! Lookin' good!!
On to the window handles...what a hard workin' guy!
I was in charge of the "Red Door" project!
Overall...I'd say one crazy awesome, super productive, and wonderful DIY Saturday! I think we are ALL a little tired.
