You probably think the title of this post has a little something to do with this:
Well, you would be right my friends.
You see, we are tackling a stone pillar that helps flank our driveway and True Value brought the goods…as in the glue.
It’s been on our to-do list for quite some time (since June) and heaven knows why we didn’t tackle it earlier…since literally it took us less than thirty minutes (and that includes the time it took us to walk down the driveway).
As most of you know, this house was a foreclosure…but what you probably didn’t know was that it sat empty for close to two years after it was foreclosed on. That means that there was a heck of a lot of time for things to fall apart. And they did. It’s an entropy concept and that’s one point for homeschoolers.
So we had a few falling stones (err…faux stones made of concrete) from our pillar…and it was uber-simple to fix. We just picked up some Loctite Construction adhesive at True Value and applied it to the back of the stones.
It literally was as simple as second-grade-gluing. And now we have a very fixed stone pillar. And no…nobody is stoned 🙂
For a very exciting finale (not really that was sarcasm) here is a little video showing exactly how we did it:
“I was one of the bloggers selected by True Value to work on the DIY Squad. I have been compensated for my time commitment to the program as well as my writing about my experience. I have also been compensated for the materials needed for my DIY project. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments.”
