Well, I stumbled onto another problem that I needed to solve. We have a big leather recliner in the family room that is sturdy and comfortable and happens to be my husband’s favorite spot. It’s such a favorite spot that there’s a section on the cushion that is wearing thin. The cushion has Velcro on it making it impossible to just flip the cushion over. What to do? We didn’t want to get rid of the chair and wondered how we could salvage it – and still make it look presentable.
I picked up a piece of leather at Hobby Lobby that is pretty close to the same color as the chair. I decided that I’d just glue the piece to the chair. Of course, it would look like the chair was patched, but the leather was attractive and I figured it would look better than it does now. My next dilemma was to figure out what would be the best glue to use – since this patch would get a lot of use and it needs to stay in place.
Enter the website This to That! You’ve got to try this. A menu drops down asking what type of material you want to glue – i.e. rubber, plastic, glass, fabric, you name it. Then another menu drops down asking what you’re gluing it to – i.e. rubber, glass, plastic, etc. So, you’re indicating that you’re going to glue this to that. Get it? This to that. This is a site I’ll use often.
Speaking of websites…..have I ever mentioned Apps Gone Free? Even if I have, this will be a good reminder. Apps Gone Free posts a list every day of apps that have gone free. Sometimes they’re going free for a day (or a limited time). Sometimes, they’ve gone free for good.
What in the world did we ever do without the Internet?
