Do you use Pine-sol to mop your floor? I do too. But I don't use it the way you might think. You see, it all started when someone told me that Pine-sol is great for removing wallpaper. My mom was in the process of redecorating her kitchen, and I told her to buy some Pine-sol. I then went over and helped her strip the wallpaper. It worked. We used a cap full of pine-sol and filled an old squirt bottle with water. Once you got the wallpaper very, very wet it came off in two parts. It was
not easy to get off, but the pine-sol helped.
While we were stripping wallpaper my son spilled something on the kitchen floor. Without thinking about it I used the squirt bottle to spot clean the floor. What a fantastic idea! You see, I have a two year old. I almost never get to actually mop my kitchen floor; but I can squirt the pine-sol mixture on the floor and wipe it up in sections. So, now I keep the pine-sol in a squirt bottle. I'm hoping that when my son is a little older he will find squirting the floor "fun". haha
I had this old ugly shed in the backyard. And I wanted a potting shed somewhere so it took me forever to see that my old ugly shed could become beautiful! Here are my before and after pictures of my Shed turned best place In the yard!
I was having a Graduation party for my daughter in our backyard. My neighbor had just repaired a portion of his redwood fence, but he used regular plywood, which maybe he didn't care what
it looked like on his side as it was for him out of site, but on our side of the fence it was in perfect view of anyone sitting on the deck. Very unsightly for myself and my guests. What to do? I couldn't paint my side of the fence, as there was a short chain link fence on my side. So I did this...very inexpensive
1. went rock hunting (it's what I call it) at a local construction site (free rocks)
2. Free mulch (at the local community tree branch drop off area)
3 Lattice Boards ($8-$10 at local home improvement center)
5 Weed control plastic ($5-$6) or use newspaper (free)
1. Attach lattice board to back side of fence area with wire, or what ever works best, depending on the fence your covering.
2. Rock off area you want to cover using small to medium rocks ( I go rock hunting on Sat-Sun between 6-10am when the crews are not there, as some contractors collect the rocks to sell)
3.Loosen soil beforehand, so you can plants before or after you place the mulch.
4. Place weed control covering
5. Spread mulch over area
Note: you may add plants and shrubs before or after you spread mulch. I added after as I wasn't sure what I wanted. I also added an Arch the following year.
