I used to use vinegar just for taking the sting our of my sunburn, but now that I am an adult (and wear sunscreen) I love using vinegar to clean everything! I have recently have ditched
the rest of my cleaning supplies and made up a few formulas of vinegar cleaners, including some lemon scented ones!
With just some cleaning vinegar, water, and a spray bottle, there is a world of possibilities to clean naturally and economically. Add in some essential oils for a different scent and also mix it with baking soda for a scrubber!
I love repurposing old stuff - just about anything will do! It gives me a good challenge and also provides me with unique furnishings and decor. I spied this broken down cart at Goodwill
(still sitting in the back even) and had to have it. It was beat up and a bit over my typically goodwill hunting price point, but it called to me...I had to have it...and so I did. And then I repaired and painted it. Now it is used all the time...indoors and outdoors, as a serving cart and a beverage cart.
A kitchen remodel on a budget - how to use what you have to update the most valuable room in the home and save cash. We spent our money wisely and used the existing floor plan and cabinet
boxes but the difference new doors, new drawers, a brand new built in pantry, new counter top and backsplash, and a really good paint job was UNBELIEVABLE! I am so happy I waited to remodel our kitchen until we had lived in our home and found the right niche for us.
I headed to Goat Hill Fair a few weeks ago. The highlight was listening to my friend Cathe Holden speak, but there was so much more. So many great vintage finds, re-purposed furnishings and found objects and amazing art and jewelry
For years I have hated the green and red plastic monster under the Christmas tree. I have tried to hide it, ignore it, come to terms with it...but nothing works.BUT not this year. In
about 2 hours total, I whipped up a simple rustic crate (about a 26" x 26" square) to house the tree...best yet I do not have to look at the ugly stand but get the peace of mind of knowing that plastic monster is protect my hardwood floors from water damage etc.
I only needed 5 pieces of 1x4x10 pine cut into the right dimensions (6 - 26", 9 - 25") about 2 dozen +/- wood screws, some wood stain and paint to create this Christmas Tree crate that look as though it could have fallen off Santa's sled.
