I have seen a lot of solutions for what to do with those pesky plastic shopping bags that can be useful but difficult to store. My girlfriend showed me a solution that has revolutionized my life... So I can't take credit for it. However, it has changed the way I think about those plastic bags and how to store them so they are more usable.There are a plethora of uses for these bags... But here is my solution to storing them and a couple of ideas of how I use them
The furnace door is soooo ugly! And it's right next to the bathroom so it's in plain sight. Yes, it's functional so I guess air needs to be allowed in. Something easy and inexpensive and safe that looks nice. Any ideas?
I have seen LOTS of posting on painting laminate cabinets. I am hoping to discover if it is possible to use a glaze only without having to primer, then paint, and finally glazing them. My cabinets have subtle wood grain details and are still in excellent condition after 18 years. I'm hoping to knock off the starkness and give them a blush of color not sure what yet. The priming, painting, glazing and sealing is a lot of work for some subtle highlighting. I'm on the lookout for some curbside doors to do some practice run's.
I want to put up bath surround panels over a tub and also a shower base, but there is a window that would be half covered up. I want to cut it to expose the window area but afraid I’d ruin it - either it would look cheap & cheesy or I’d ruin it structurally. Added photos of each grisly bathroom!! Anyone? Help?
we don’t use our fireplace and we need to cover it for child safety purposes ( daughter is crawling around to it etc) so... what can I do that’s an easy DIY, inexpensive and can come off if we ever sell our house? Any ideas I would greatly appreciate.

I have decided to do a farmhouse theme on my flocked Christmas Tree this year and I wanted to make some new ornaments for it.I happen to run across a set of mini vintage looking red truck ornaments that had tiny little bottle brush tree's in the back of them and thought they were just about perfect for what I wanted.I wanted them to have a bigger presence on my tree so I got a bag of wood shapes, and since I am using a lot of black and white buffalo plaid this year I picked up some printed scrapbook paper.
I have to tell you that I am a total 80's girl! I'm a very nostalgic person who loves anything from the 80's & 90's, so I absolutely love how my shopping bags advent calendar turned out!

This is a great way to preserve family traditions and remember loved ones during the holidays. This recipe card Christmas ornament is a great way to display heirloom recipes and keep traditions alive! They make great handmade gifts too!
