Tell us about yourself!
I recommend these to my adult ADHD patients who have trouble falling or staying asleep. I think the heaviness provides tactile stimulation for people who 'can't shut their brain off' at night. They can combine this with a sleep sound machine (app) too. Plastic pellets are fine for children but adults who need heavier blankets can use very small stones to reduce bulk. Walmart sells non-toxic aquarium pebbles in a 25 lb bag for $12. There's also a great place online that makes blankets using fine grade stone for a very reasonable price. Vests and lap pads can be made the same way.
If you stretch some panty hose over the end of the vacuum you can catch the pellets before they wind up in your vacuum.

Any problems doing this with galvanized pipe? Some places say just cleaning it well and then painting with an acrylic paint (usually not spray paint) is all that is needed for galvanized. Other places say galvanized should be cleaned, then primed with a primer paint, then painted. Nice job!

The nail polish seals the tape and prevents it from peeling and degrading from water or abrasion. I wear my ring every day (over 1 1/2 years now) and have never had to add a new coat. I'll attach a picture of what it looks like now. Instead of layering two pieces on top of each other I attached one layer opposite of the other on the inside (see photo).
