My husband always has an abundance of empty cable spools. I like finding ways to re-purpose them and I've discovered they really make great wheels! Using old wood we have out back, we
made a simple crate and attached it to the spools.
Of course, it is a stationary cart, you can't roll it around the yard. And we still have to add the handle. Since it's still winter here, I've filled mine with house plants so I can enjoy it till it's time to set in the garden and fill with annuals.
we recently did our first broken stone mosaic floor in a curbless bathroom install. I must say, i absolutely love the look and will be pushing this on more clients in the future. This install features SpectraLock epoxy grout, i would not have wanted a regular grout with all the joint variations.
Okay, i know I have only been on this forum for a week! but I am super impressed with all the talented designers that share this forum and I thought I might ask for some help. I just
posted an article on ways to fill the space above your bed.
It features mirrors and art (normal stuff right?) but next week I want to feature some unique options (I've seen names, paddles that act as headboards....) and I know you guys have some hidden gems in your own homes. so if you care to share - post a comment here (with a picture if you have it) or head on over to my blog and submit your photo for inclusion in next weeks post, your designs will be fully credited...
Also, if this is a totally inappropriate request, just let me know (gently, please) and I will be super embarrassed and not do it again. Cheers!
Here's a simple way to clean a smooth stovetop using baking soda and a wet soapy towel. I've done this several times and it really does work!

The link just took a long time to open.... You soak a dish cloth in hot, soapy water. Sprinkle
stove top with baking soda (heavier where needed) Wring out dishcloth and place it on cook top - leave for 15 minutes and wipe off. You may need to rinse dishcloth and wipe it down again. I just tried it and it worked beautifully.
