I LOVE this idea for my garden! Did you know that you can grow another complete celery
stalk from the bottom piece that you cut off and throw away? Cut off the end that you would normally "throw away" and then place it in a small dish filled with warm water.
Next "pot" the celery stalk (Stalk Side Up) or place in your garden. Just dig a small hole, fill it with water and set the end in the hole, then cover it up with an inch or so of soil. Water thoroughly. That is it! Now the "end" will grow into a full stalk of celery! Rinse and Repeat and you never have to buy celery again! Talk about a way to save money! This photo is taken on day 7 and as you can see it is working!
We have a chevron wood wall in our family room. I have no idea what to do with it. Right now it is stained an orangeish brown color.... very dated and dark. Same thing with the fireplace,
the brick is dark red and just dated looking. What do you think? What would you do? We installed dark hardwood floors throughout the entire home and the walls in here are painted French Gray- a Blue/Gray. Help!! Here is a link to my pinterest board to kind of show my style and what I like: http://pinterest.com/ashopaholicmom/for-the-...

I would spackle over the grooves in the chevron wall and make it smooth...or cover over the
wall with drywall and paint. Even if you decide to put shelves on that wall...cover the chevron design and lighten it up. That is one fugly wall (to me that is--no offense). I agree...it seems your Pinterest board identifies well what you like...go with that. The fireplace can be brightened up with a dry brush of brick colored paint.
