I finally got tired of fighting with the cover on my sofa. I'm not ready to buy a new one and this one is still perfectly fine. The color was way too light but it's comfortable for those of us vertically challenged folks. So many of the newer ones seem designed for tall people, they just don't fit.
My living room couch had been through so much dirt and grime... I was really tired of its stains and spots, so I had started to cover it with throws for a while, but even that got old. When I just could NOT look at it anymore, I decided to rip it up and reupholster it completely rather than buy a new couch. After all, even though it had taken lots of abuse from my kids, it was built well inside so the 'bones' and padding were still in great shape. Now I wanted it to look new and fresh, in a color that would be fun to come home to.
One of my favourite places in the summer is the outdoor sofa in my back garden. When l get 10mins to myself I love to just lounge on it sipping cocktails and flicking through interiors magazines.My sofa is an Ikea Ammero which has lasted really well considering it's had to put up with the unpredictable British weather for 7 years. However even though I store away the cushions in the winter they were looking rather grubby and ready for a refresh.
I don't like to use harmful chemicals in my home. Vinegar can be a great biodegradable and green alternative. The acidity in the vinegar is what is doing the work while you are cleaning and cuts through grease, soap scum, mineral deposits, etc. You can see more of my crazy creations here

I have wanted an outdoor sink forever and finally got around to building one! I used pressure treated lumber from the cull bin at Home Depot (extra cheap!), an old sink, an old faucet, and plumbing parts from the hardware store! I connected the faucet to the same water line my garden hose is connected to... and I love it!
Having a gorgeous outdoor space for your friends and family to gather and socialize is an important part of your home. If you have the space, you should try to have an area for conversation, as well as dining. Your guests should be comfortable and it should be conducive for entertaining. I'm sharing my outdoor space and some tips on creating your own.
The story of my red velvet, French Provincial style couch began when an Instagram photo popped up on my feed advertising a single seater red velvet armchair for $40 via an antique store.
In this project, I’ll be sharing my experience with creating a neat little epoxy resin table for my two-year-old daughter. The back story is she loves to follow me from room to room, and I love having her around me. Being a content creator I am always on the computer trying to get work done. As long as I'm in her sight that’s enough. I made her a desk awhile back, but that was too bulky to lug around. This is why this table came about. For our purpose, it’s a kids table for others this would make a perfect nightstand or end table. The same concept can be applied to any surface. The resin I’m using is from countertop epoxy there is certainly many brands out there this is the one I have experience with. I went with epoxy because it’s durable and easy to maintain. The more layers you have the more you can wet sand it to remove scratches. I used Countertop epoxy" Click Here "

I purchased this antique dresser from a friend who lives down the street from me. Isn’t she a beauty? The mirror was in excellent shape, no scratches or anything, which is very rare.
