Painting Chairs

 - by Ty

In a few days I will try to paint my first wooden chair. I found 2 chairs that are in good condition. Some work needs to be done, like strengthening  one of the chair legs. Some wood glue should fix that.  I will apply 2 coats of paint and then a layer of clear varnish. I want to paint one chair turquoise and the other a plain white. I will post pictures of my finished project.  I have no experience with this. I just see all the inspiration from Pinterest. And I get inspired to create these DIY projects.  If I fail no worries the chairs didn’t cost me anything !


AIM On Android

 - by Ty




I have a Motorola Android phone. I have lots of pro’s about this particular model. It’s just the right size, large keyboard and very durable. However, I have a few cons about some of the apps. For example, I downloaded the AIM app, so that I can text my instant messages. Which is very convenient for me.  But I quickly found out that this app drains the battery life of the phone.  Even if you do not have the app open, as long as it is running the battery will become drained very quickly. The phone was charged at 100% at 8 am. I had the app running from 8am till 2pm. By 2pm the phone was a about 10%charged.  And yes I was actively using the app from time to time.   I find this very annoying. Does anyone have any solutions for this small annoyance?
