Make an all-natural toilet cleaner + 6 places you're NOT cleaning at your bathroom toilet! Time to step up spring cleaning!
I’m all about green cleaning ideas and homemade cleaning products. So when I found this recipe for a carpet freshener I thought, "let’s give it a try." We just got a second dog ( a cute puppy that has stolen our heats), and all our carpets could use a little freshening up. I was a little skeptical about this at first, but two days after I used it, a neighbor stopped by and took a deep breath and then asked me what yummy thing I was baking. She was so surprised when I told her it was my new carpet freshener. It definitely covered up the pet smells. Here’s the recipe:
Chemical free trick to clean that nasty toilet bowl ring.
I'm sure if you look around in your cupboards you will find one or two of these, we all have them. By them I mean the silver serving platters. I inherited mine and held on to them. Never actually used them for what they were supposed to be used for, but I loved the shape of them. So when I was searching for the perfect frame for my beloved Grandma's pictures these immediately came to mind. My Gramma lived to the beautiful age of 103. She passed last November due to complications from a fall. Up until then she was blessed with good health and was able to live in her own home. I was given a picture of her when she was a young girl of 13 and I had the picture of her already of her at 103. She is deeply missed but these pictures help fill that void and are a reminder of what a remarkable woman she was.
Hi everyone ! It was time to make a new ceiling lamp in the dining room. I saw some georgeous black metal baskets that are used as a candle holder or a modern fruit basket. But I immediately knew it would be a new lamp. It is so easy to make. You need a drill bit for metal, a vintage looking ,ready to use ceiling rose set and a led filament bulb.I had 2 projects.I recycled my old ceiling lamp for one project and just replaced the wires and for the other project I used a vintage ceiling rose in copper.

I have dogs and that means that my home doesn't always smell like roses. Today, in fact, I am sitting here typing while smelling eau de wet dog. I wouldn't keep this cutie off of my feet for the life of me, though!
Since I have pets but I want a house that smells nice I like to use lots of "smell goods" including carpet deodorizer. It's hardly an expensive thing to buy at the store BUT I can show you how to make it for SO MUCH CHEAPER and in your absolutely favorite scents, too!
I had found this old forgotten toolbox at a garage sale and just knew I had to have it, even tho I didn't know what I was going to do with it at the time. When I got home, I scoured the internet for inspiration. I saw a picture of a toolbox on the wall that was used to store books. Well, the only walls in my home that are empty are in the bathroom and the lightbulb went off! So here is the easy and quick project I did using that old forgotten toolbox.
How I built cornhole boards and stained them with unicorn spit. I’ve been meaning to build some yard games for family gatherings, parties and birthdays held at my place. My best friend’s husband was turning 40 in November and we threw him a surprise birthday party in October. Why a month before his birthday? Because this is Minnesota and we didn’t want to be outside standing in a foot of snow and freezing to death lol And I don’t have a house big enough to really accommodate 100 people!

These little concrete pumpkin candles were inspired by a DIY I did a few weeks ago. I really loved the idea of industrial fall decor and decided to make some indoor pumpkins instead of the outdoor ones I made last time. Since my last pumpkins were pretty big I found a way to keep them lightweight by turning the concrete into hypertyfa (if you’ve missed that DIY you can check it out here).
These pumpkins are so cute. They are super versatile and take under an hour to make.Depending on the size and the amount of pumpkins you do this project can take you from 20 minutes to 2 hours to make. (not including setting times) A small 6″ pumpkin will be in the 20 minute range. Take into consideration that I mixed my concrete in small batches by hand (with a metal spoon). So it took a bit longer than if I would of had a mixing attachment to help mix my concrete. I’m sure that would shorten my projects time almost in half.Total Cost : $17-$20.(price may very. Depending on what you already have at home. My pumpkins cost me around $17 to make)

The wall over my couch was just begging for some art. But I'm constantly changing up the frames and art in my home, so I didn't want to hang a large gallery wall and have holes to fill when I wanted a new look.So I decided to build a DIY picture ledge custom to my couch area.
