Do you have a bag of potatoes that looks like this one? Here's what to do! Mine made a beautiful container with flowers on the front porch one year! :) It's so fun digging them out! Like
hunting for treasure. My kids were three and they dug in that pot all day! Potatoes don't like heat, so plant them as early as you can. They won 't make it all the way through the summer. Then, treasure hunt time!
With a family of 7 to feed, my canned food stash was going a bit crazy. I designed and built wood organizers that rotate the oldest dates out first. I also built 2 different sizes. This
one will hold up to 12 cans... Woohoo! The others will hold up to 7 and are stackable. This is the best thing to happen to my pantry in a long time! Plus... They cost under $5 a piece to build!

The standard pantries in the house we bought last year were almost unusable. Long deep shelves and only 3-4 of them in a large closet sized area. Thank heavens they had doors. I designed
the shelves, my husband cut them out of MDF boards, I painted them with several coats of paint, and he installed them with aluminum channel. The channel allowed use of the shelf all the way to the back of the space. I counted and measured all the things in my food pantry to make the plan for how many shelves, how wide, tall and deep they needed to be. See the beginning and end result. It's so nice to be able to find things now. It turned out so nice, we did the 2nd pantry where I keep dishes, plastics, and mixed items for the kitchen!
I have finished my daughter's princess bedroom complete with loft bed with a princess playhouse underneath. I added cute touches like matching curtains and vinyl numbers going up the
stairs to her bed. We removed the closet doors and have installed a great closet system that she actually loves! Underneath her loft bed we even had room to make her a secret closet to hang her dress up clothes! Check out all the little details at the link below! #ProudestDIY#DIY#bedroom#loftbed
