How to Make a Plaid Pillow Using a Drop Cloth and Stencil

Here is how to make a unique cushion cover using a drop cloth, stencils, and chalk style paint! I painted an antique rocking chair for my porch decor, and wanted to add some inexpensive decor to match. So I decided to paint some plaid fabric, and make my own pillow. I started by picking out my plaid stencil. The stencil I used is called the plaid shirt stencil by Fusion Mineral paint. This stencil comes with two sheets, one with thicker lines, and one with thin lines.

How can I add another shelf to this old bench?

I am unsure of what exactly this bench is made of-some kind of steel. It is magnetic which is why I think it's steel. I just want to add one more row of shelving. the actual shelving should not be an issue, but I am not sure how to add a row- would I need to use nut and bolt like the main ones? All "remodel" issues are welcome, painting , drawers, etc.

How can I landscape my front yard?

Get your imagination working! ;-) May be purchasing this beautiful rancher soon and I'm dreaming! What would you put in the 8x6 foot recessed area that backs up to the dining room double window? It is obvious that it doesn't get any rain/little sun. The previous owners planted annuals in this area and unfortunately I do not have much time for a lot of watering/gardening maintenance. I'm a twice a year girl.....spring and fall maintenance! If I do purchase I plan to take out the two evergreens because they are beginning to block access of the walk. One idea is laying pavers and putting a (white or black?) rocking chair and an urn with a fake fern (warmer weather) and winter greenery (cooler weather).What do you think? Any ideas of what to put there? Or just mulch it to help keep weeds down??If you've taken the time to read this far....thank you! :-) Appreciate any ideas.

q need some landscaping ideas
