Husband is working on a large construction site here in SC, so I have been getting a huge supply of pallets. So far I have built a deck for the RV, a small table and now a chair. I didn't have a pattern so I just winged it from photos of other chairs. Now that I have the basics down I am going to add a little more style to the next one.
Ever since moving into my current house, I have struggled to keep our front walk weed free. We have 2 young kids (that seem to cringe at the site of shoes thus are always walking around
without them) and a little dog, so I personally do not like to use Round up or other harsh weed killers on our property. To add to that, the city where we live has banned the majority of pesticides.
I got this frugal, yet extremely effective, way of killing weeds from my neighbor. He was out spraying his weeds a couple of weeks ago and I had to inquire what he was using because all I could smell was vinegar. I love that it is safer for my family and the environment. I also love the price! Using basic ingredients, pickling vinegar, dish soap and salt, you too can kill your weeds. Be warned though, it will kill grass so don't be trigger happy with you sprayer :)
I had a empty boring garage wall that could really use something fun on it. I searched Pinterest for some ideas and I came up with a couple that I could modify. I decided on a Palette
Herb Garden. I already had the palettes but a single palette was too big for my space. I had my hubby cut it into 4 pieces. I then painted them white and added hose clamps to place the herb pot in. I found some fun colorful pots and added my favorite herbs to them. I made some fun, colorful herb markers and added those. I no longer have a boring garage wall.

After I ripped up the carpet in my home, living room, dining room, hallway, all 3 bedrooms it was a 1000ft bungalow I decided to put down good one side plywood and I painted it with a
gray-blue paint I read that it keeps the heat in the winter, then my friend and I put the border down and painted the floor dark blue as you can see after that we proceeded to paint with out first outlining it, just off the cuff painted the sunflower as you can see. We did every room in the house in the library we put down after the plywood and paint we put down old world maps and modpodge over them, you can see all that I did in my new home.
