A Quick Little Repair...


I used to have some self adhesive velcro stuck on along the edge of my sewing table to hang a little curtain from it.  I hid all sorts of things under that curtain! When we were getting ready to move from Birmingham last year I pulled off the velcro. YIKES! It took some of the laminate veneer and paint with it! (Maybe you can see the damage if you click on the picture.) I've been looking for a quick fix.


I found some black and white tape at Hobby Lobby last week.  It was exactly the right size. I stuck it on the edge and I think it looks great!

Do you know what I'm doing tonight? SEWING! I haven't picked up a needle and thread or sat at my machine for a few days, and I was having withdrawal symptoms! Go over to the HEXIE blog to see what I'm working on....

Hi Julia! I had the same thing happen to my table. Whe my mom passed I got her table.It was way to big to get thru the doors and the edge of the table got caught and ripped off. I painted it and it looks ok. But I'm liking your idea of colored tape!

Checked out your hexie site.... Love what you did with Mickey! Did you hang him up on your wall? Great idea!!!

Oh my husband says when we move we are to look for a home that has a down stairs walk out. Just so I'll be able to "kind of roll the table in". He's coming up with all different scenario's so he doesn't have to handle it.He really dreads moving it.I just keep saying "don't worry honey the movers will take care of it! I could go on and on.... Hope your having a good night!
