-Not being able to turn on the lights while holding a basket full of dirty laundry
-Forgetting to turn off said lights before leaving for work
This ringa true for many of our friends, too. And that's why I installed a motion sensor light switch in our laundry room.
I chose the Lutron Maestro because I heard great things about it on a few podcasts and you can find it in any hardware store. The installation is super simple if you have a single-pole switch but it can also be used in three-way switch situations. You can program the switch to turn on and off automatically. What I like best is that you can set it to turn off after 1, 5, 15, or 30 minutes.
Lutron's website has a few nice videos explaining the basic installation but I put together a tutorial that goes a bit more in depth and shares basic wiring tips. In case you're interested here's the link to my blog post http://www.homerepairtutor.com/maestro-motio...
My wife was skeptical of how well the Maestro would work but now she's requesting a second one for our closet!! If she's impressed I think you'll be too.
Do you love those whimsical topsy turvy planters as much as I do? Have you ever wondered how they are made? Here's one I made recently using galvanized buckets. You can find more details, including the plants that I used, by visiting our blog.
The boy's room with vertical wall stripes is designed forgrowth. It is not attached toany particular theme. It is styled with vintage feel in mind. The bedding coverlet is "faded" herringbone cotton and vintage art printson the walls add splashes of color. Colors and shapes create rhythm.
Circles of the table and lamps work with vertical stripes ofthe walls. Playful patterns of the rug and the ottoman are fun together. Grey, blue and teal colors
are dominating the room, andcream colors are used to brighten up the room.
A comfortable sleeper was the client's requirement. It is her favorite reading spot with kids.Many stories will be read in this boy's room before he grows up. Then he canuse the sleeper for the sleepovers.
