Prettify the Beauty Shop

Energy, motivation and opportunity converged last week when we had a couple of days that were too hot for outdoor activity.  BBBH decided to reupholster her shop chairs.  Now by "shop" please understand that there is no commercial activity going on here.  This is the nook in the garage where she cares for our hair, hers and mine.


She has had the material and the intention to do this job for fifteen years.  Now it is done.  And I helped.  Yes, I had the joy of disassembling and reassembling the chairs.  The styling chair is put together with twenty bolts, the dryer chair with fifteen.  I also got to work the stapler!  You'd be surprised at the number of staples she demanded.


I never cease to be amazed, though, at what Beautiful can do with a tape measure, a pair of scissors, and a sewing machine.

Looks very nice - How nice for you to have a handy-dandy wife. I need a wife like that, also one who cooks...

Shelly said...

Now that is a wonderful thing to have right there in the home, and it sounds like both of you are quite handy~

Grace, thanks. And she does cook. I am blessed!

Shelly, it is very convenient. When it comes, to "handy," I muddle through, and I do have a few of the right tools. That makes the difference.

Hair. Such a bother to deal with.

Nice! I have a couple of stools and the fabric already purchased for covering them if you would like to come for a visit (and bring your tools, of course).

Shark, hair: after all those years working with it, BBBH is still fascinated by it.

Vee, what a great offer! We'd gladly trade a bit of effort in exchange for a visit with you.

That's why I prefer my buzz cut.

Chuck, the lady here won't permit me a buzz cut. That's okay; with my schnozz, well...

In my youth, I wore a flattop which necessitated a visit to the barber every ten days or so.
