Right-handed pool player with a fat ass. The triangle gives him room to use the long cue on the break without needing to pull out the small sticks, and the light lets him see what english he is putting on the cue ball.

Solved.

This weekend Russell and I tried to make the shed feel a little more inviting.

I painted the outside about three years ago, pretty much straight after we moved in.

But the inside has always been really dark and uninviting. I've hung some of D's artwork up there for the last few years, but really the whole thing needed brightening up. I thought it was beyond just being painted, so I had the idea to use some vinyl tablecloth as a sort of wallpaper/backdrop, and also to resurface the work benches and wrap the shelf (we replaced the shelf with an offset we already owned, as the old shelf was past it, and the brackets needed replacing anyway).

It feels a lot lighter in there now. Russell also moved the glove rack away from the window to allow more light in there. It cost less than £20 to brighten up, and it's just stapled up if it doesn't work out, but I spent some time in there today sowing seeds and potting things on and it was brilliant with the music on and a cup of tea.

Great shed work… but the spiders will be cold now you’ve moved the gloves from the window.

Technology advances have meant that the old striped paint you used to send apprentices to buy, is now gradient paint.
