Since this weekend was very mellow and I basically just ran around doing a bunch of chores and meal prep it isn’t very blogworthy so I am going to spare you. Instead I’ll finally post the photo wall I promised
a few two people I would share.
I struggle with printing out my pictures, I mostly just back them up on an external hard drive so it was nice to finally get some printed and up on the wall.
Tools: Screwdriver or Drill ~ Hammer ~ Level ~ Paintbrush or foam brush
Cut List: From the 1x3xR/L boards cut 8 at 24″ and 3 at 32″. With the 1x2x6 board cut 2 at 26″ *SEE NOTE ONE
*Note One: Most boards might be advertised a specific length or width but in fact are actually a smidge smaller. Before you have the 1x2x6 board cut be sure and lay out all the 1×3 boards and measure the length then cut the 1x2x6 board to 1/2″ shorter so it doesn’t hang over the sides.
*Note Two: I have had my issues with Lowe’s and Home Depot cutting wood. I got gift cards to Home Depot for Christmas so I got wood cut there and the cashier tried to tell me that they can charge per board cut depending on who cuts the wood! Say what? You either charge or you don’t. Needless to say I prefer Lowe’s since it is less hassle and FREE. Just my opinion though, just ask before they cut. If they screw up know you can return the wood.
*Note Three: It would be cheaper to get a fixed length board. Again I am not used to Home Depot and didn’t realize the cost per board was by the foot not by the board. Live and learn.
*Note Four: I am including links to some items to help you find the same if you do the project. These are not affiliate links they are just to help you find same/like items.
Directions: Lay out the 1×3 cut boards (if there are any markings you don’t want to be seen be sure to keep that facing you) spacing out the longer lengths. I did about 2-3 of the 24″ length boards then a 32″ board and repeated. These don’t have to be exact just go with what you like. Once you like the look, place the two 1×2 cut pieces on top, one at the top and one at the bottom.
Flip the board over, you are ready to stain. I used the Rust-Oleum wood stain in American Walnut.
Seamus did amazing at the vet on Saturday. He finally got his sutures out and he didn’t flinch, even the vet was impressed since it’s such a sensitive area. His biopsy results came back, and it is a mast cell tumor which means it is cancerous. He has a Grade two which is a lower grade. According to PetMD: Grade 2 cells are intermediately differentiated with a potential for locally invasive metastasis. So while the prognosis isn’t great it is not bad either.
Basically if it is going to grow back it will grow back in the same spot, we are scheduling appointments once a month for the next six months and keeping an eye on it. If it grows back he will have surgery again. They can’t be overly aggressive the first time for worry they can take too much and damage the function of his urinary tract and surrounding tissues. Life expectancy shall it not come back is 2 or more years so fingers crossed.
As you can see he is his same old goofy self, he is much stronger than me that’s for sure.
How was your weekend?
Linking up with Biana from B Loved Boston.
