I may have mentioned a few - or a million - times how much I love my living room couch. Well, after two years of lovin', my beloved couch was starting to show some wear. The notorious

What a great idea Susan! And if you have leather furniture with scratches on it from pets you
just gotta try FIEBING'S Leather Dye on Amazon for only about $2.31 plus S&H in many colors! I used a cloth instead of the dabber included and it worked GREAT! I did it about 3 weeks ago and my recliners still look great plus there is enough leftover for more uses. I just had to share this!
I had to pull the carpet up in one of my bedrooms and I didnt know what to put down on the bare concrete floor, so it stayed concrete for a while. I eventually decided to use the room as
an art studio and wanted to have a wood floor in there. I decided to put my trompe l'oiel knowledge to work and paint the concrete floor in a bamboo style similar to my bamboo floor in my living room and I love the way it turned out. People have to look twice or be told its painted. a true trompe l'oiel effect.

When I built my garden pond it was missing just one thing: a little waterfall. The sound of gentle running water is not only lovely to hear but it also attracts all sorts of winged
creatures to the garden including butterflies, dragonflies, and a wider array of birds than I would normally see.
To keep life frugal and creative, I like to challenge myself to solve problems with things I already have on hand. In this case a metal paint roller tray did the trick. It not only formed a perfect waterfall but it's a favourite spot for birds to drink and bathe.
If you want to know how to setup a little waterfall and pond (it's really simple!), there's a diagram and full instructions on my blog: http://www.empressofdirt.net/pond-waterfall/

I used a vacuum cleaner attachment and put a small bridge over it and it works too as a
waterfall. The plastic tube from the pump fits in the attachment perfectly .But I might have to try a paint pan too.
