Since I can't afford a new fancy Washer & Dryer for my Laundry Room, instead I decided to give a little makeover to my old set using a stencil from Royal Design Studio.
I centered the thick plastic stencil on the front of my dryer and stuck it in place with some painter's tape. I then used a little cabinet and trim roller to apply my paint. Finish it off with a coat of clear polyurethane and the makeover is complete!

Much like the washer and dryer I had an ugly brown woodgrain mini refrigerator in my office so
I found a vintage Coke Machine image and blew it up and printed it on adhesive paper and stuck it on the front. Looks much more inviting... no sodas though just water in there.
Here is a little project I've been working on. I have a small pond off our patio but after the above ground pool was removed I didn't want just a patch of grass... the dirt from the dig
went into a raised garden that was where our pool deck lived. We still have some platings, patio blocks and water features to finish and I need to make another homemade filter system that will empty into the large vase that spills into the pond. The pond id 32 inches deep at it's deepest and on the right is a 12 inch deep shelf for water plants that don't need to be submersed.

Since it is so deep raccoons can not reach them... my fear is snakes and big birds. I also
added a large drainage pipe so they can hid in it. after a few weeks of Greenish water it cleared up overnight. I can now see to the bottom.
We decided we wanted a barn door to separate our doorless master bathroom, and started researching hardware online. Everything was upwards of hundreds of dollars, and way out of our price
range. So my husband got creative and thought, "Why not use a trolley rail?" So we headed down to Lowe's and bought a six foot long trolley rail for about $25, and decided which hanging kit we liked (the hanger with 9 bolts) which cost $30. We built a door out of tongue and groove paneling, stained it blue (my husband has been dying to stain something blue) then later on painted it white (wife wins again!) The entire project (hardware + building our own door) cost $140, which is a fraction of the cost of the fancy hardware!
