HawkFan Thanks! I got a lot of inspiration from Pinterest.

This is really wonderful. I love the way you took an opportunity to make a very mundane job interesting. As Shakespeare put it (loosely interpreted) "a silk purse from a sow's ear". The best improvisation!

Looks it'll last another 20 yr! Great patch/update!

Ibtreerock Sizzlewaggle Thank you so much for your kind words. I'm not sure it will hold up for another 20 years - but a good few at least hopefully. x
