Simple Greenhouse Repair

The door on my large greenhouse drives me wild. 
For the last couple of years I've put up with it dropping as it swings open. This means that you have to lift it up every time you want to close it.
I think we all have things like this, little jobs that would probably only take half an hour to fix and save a lot of annoyances. 
Last year I made the gates for my garden to save me having to fight with the rabbit wire each time I went in there, once I'd done it I couldn't believe I hadn't done it sooner! 
The greenhouse door took a little thinking about but with a small metal bracket bent to suit and a nut and bolt I had it sorted whilst the girls played in the sandpit. A little bit of a bodge but it works. 

It now swings open and shuts easily, no more fighting the greenhouse door. 
What little job did you put off for years and then regret you did once you did it (if that even makes sense!)?


  1. I have been getting Martin doing little jobs at the week end I got him to put the holder charger bracket for the cordless hoover at the week end, it was driving me nuts that it kept falling over when I had it propped up on charge only took him a moment to drill and fix in place :-)

  2. Ohhh my George has a list of jobs for me that I'll regret if I don't get around to doing them!!!

  3. A very satisfying bodge. I have several awaiting my attention.

  4. I know one person who will appreciate it!
