I was in love with the look of a rustic cooler for our patio, but was turned off by the high prices. So my husband and I took an old cooler apart and built our own! The base is held by a
2x2 frame, covered in reclaimed fence posts found by the curb. We attached a spigot to the drain hole in the cooler for drainage, used an antler shed for the handle, and added a bottle opener for decoration. It was so easy, and only $30 in supplies (since we had the cooler and fence wood on hand). You can check out the full step-by-step tutorial on my blog ( http://www.killerbdesigns.com/rustic-cooler-... ) to see how to make your own! It's a great addition to our back porch, and was so easy to make.
Stone leftover from another project and three galvanized trash can lids become a bird bath grouping! Another of my "use what you have" ventures. More pictures and directions on http://ourfairfieldhomeandgarden.com
Yesterday after the landscapers finished clearing the back of our lot, this flower was left standing all by itself. Does anyone know what it is? It is along at the top of the over 2 foot stem, but I believe I can see another unopened bud about 1/2 way down.
My master bath has a jacuzzi whirlpool "majora". No jets, so no access panel. I've noticed a 'soft' spot on the tub floor about 3" round. I cannot see it with my eyes-- its that shallow.
But i can feel it with the ball of my foot, or my hand. I just bought the house 4 months ago. There are no visible cracks, and no water damage to the floor underneath (it's over a second bathroom).
I can't figure out what it could be. Also I can't access it-- there's my kitchen shared wall on one side and a linen closet on the other. My bf tells me not to worry but I am worried about water damage that I cannot see...
So, is it time to call a pro? And which type of pro do I call?

I would ask a plumber. They should be able to give an idea of what it is- It could be one of
two things, water damage or when they installed the tub, the concrete they put under it for support may have had a bubble of air that didn't fill in- thus leaving a small unsupported spot. Either way just keep an eye on it..
