Decorating and D.I.Y.
« on: November 18, 2011, 02:25:00 PM »
I have been doing a bit of improvement to our rear garden by the erection of a lean-to and some trellising.   I had to give the woodwork a coat of preservative but only had a very large container of the stuff.   Neccessity being the Mother of invention I cut down a 2 litre milk container as per the photo and it worked very well.  A nice comfortable handle, holds well over a pint and you can tip excess back through the handle and lid without spilling a drop!

It cost nowt and can be replaced quite easily!

'Cos the cat's very well hidden - in fact he is son the other side - the INSIDE!     L0L

After the recent move the usual jobs need doing, curtains and light fittings etc. Mrs H was no longer confident in her step stool, the normal tin plate, noisy and rickety bit of kit, and did not like using the normal step ladder, so she bought a new set, and I have to admit, my preference has changed, not being as nimble as previous years, I like the full sized top step, with a rail you can balance against, the locking system and the steel construction, it feels planted, a total feeling of security.              Definitely worth sharing..... We bought ours in a local DIY store, I believe about £25 in their sale a few months ago.

You did well there, Steve; Werner stuff is seriously impressive - and far more expensive, usually. Was it B & Q?

It was B&Q Ian, recommending this item felt a bit odd, a step stool ! but it really is an excellent product, especially if you do not like working on steps, we bought it I think in their Easter sale, there were only two left, so I hope a they have restocked, I am note sure but the normal cost was about £30 ?
