I needed to cover up a shameful space in my backyard. And, provide another area for seating. I wanted it to be cheap, easy and fast. This method of building a deck was perfect! The only tool needed was a drill.

I have the rail road ties but no concrete blocks. Will have to go get some. I need a deck
outside the back of the house. Then I will have to finally get the door I want to replace a window in the dinning room. We would use our Summer House more if there were a more convient way to get to it.
We had this horrible, eyesore of a grill sitting in our backyard. It had been destroyed in a windstorm and there it sat, mocking me. While I was taking it apart to put out on the curb on
trash day, I had the brilliant idea of turning it into a planter. All it took was a little bit of soapy water and some spray paint...and now it's awesome. This is perfect for my backyard and I love my new outdoor space! More info here: http://makelyhome.com/diy-planter/

I have one I plan to do this with. Got to go get the plants. I think I will leave them in the
pots and just fit pots in the BBQ as tightly as they will go.
I found solar lights at Walmart that were pretty much the same size as the top of a canning jar. I bought a box of a dozen clear generic canning jars at Walmart. And I bought bags of flat florist gems at the dollar store.
I removed the cylinder with the ground spike from the solar light and put a thin line of clear silicone caulk around the outside of the jar ring then put the light on top. After the caulk dried attach flat florist gems around the jar ring and around the little edge at the bottom of the clear shade of the solar light. Then I threw in about 50 florist gems inside the jar for stability outside along my wall. I wanted to use red gems but they didn't have any. Next trip to the Dollar Store :)

My mother always used epsom salts for roses. A hand full around each rose bush ever spring.
She grew beautiful roses. I have followed her example.
My Vinyl floors had gotten so grimy over the years, that I thought I was going to have to replace them. Then I found out about a neat tip, that got them sparkling clean and it was so
easy! I used a cleaning product that most people probably already have, but not one made for floors! Want to know what it is? It's Scrubbing Bubbles! I have the full details on my blog. http://www.graphicsfairy-diy.com/2013/01/my-...
