The sofa is one of the most used objects in the house, especially for watching TV with a cool drink in hand or something to eat. Imagine all the blemishes, crumbs and dirt that are hidden between the edges of the sofa. Or else, imagine the dirt and the stains if you let your pets to play on the sofa. Because of that, it’s good to pay more attention to the sofa cleaning during the big house cleaning every season. Take a look at some ideas and methods that can help you!
Well, since the 4th of July has come and gone, down came the Patriotic Holiday Shelf. I wanted to decorate with something that would last me until Fall, so this time, I decided to go with a beach theme! I’ve never done that before, so I wasn’t quite sure how it would turn out, but it worked well, I think. Let’s see what YOU think!
When we purchased our home, the main areas (kitchen, dining room, foyer, living room and hall) plus the bathrooms, were all tile. All four of our bedrooms, however, are covered in laminate wood flooring. It’s decent-looking. But all four of them are DIFFERENT FINISHES.
It’s enough to drive an OCD person like myself just plain NUTS!
So it’s been on the list from the beginning to replace all the tile (because I despise grout) with hardwood, and go ahead and carry that into a couple or all four of the bedrooms. I don’t mind a bit of difference here and there…I just don’t think there’s any need for 6 different types of flooring in one house. (Which is what we have, if you count the carpets in the closets, ha!)
I made this banner for patriotic decor, but you could do it for any kind of decor or gathering! Pics of your 1-year-old for their birthday party...pics of your kids for some summer decor...pics of the flowers in your garden for fabulous party banners! Super easy!
I've seen on Pinterest (as I’m sure you have, too) a few different images of acid-stained concrete, and I thought it was interesting! Yes, I even thought it might work for our porches, but I knew nothing about it. So I did some research...
Now, when you have animals, you’re pretty much guaranteed that they will shed. Just a fact of life, right? But between a white dog and a black cat…I vacuum and lint-brush-roll and dust multiple times during the week. And when it’s time to get new living room furniture? I’m TOTALLY done with microfiber. I just CAN’T anymore.
I’ve been looking at my house from the outside recently. You know how you do. Winter is pretty much over. The weather is turning towards Spring. And you feel the need for something fresh and clean and NEW! But you don't want to spend a lot of money on fresh and clean and new, either.
I’ve been in a kitchen cleaning funk lately. Does that make any sense to anyone else?
For instance, so far this year, I cannot count the number of times I’ve left dirty dishes in the sink overnight. That is HIGHLY unusual for me. Unusual to the point that my husband asked me if I was okay…because there were still dishes in the sink in the morning before I left for work. I’m normally a clean-up-as-I-go-along gal.
So when author Heather Roberts contacted me to see if I was interested in publishing a post on kitchen cleaning tips, I thought it might be a good idea. Because apparently I needed them!
Having a well-maintained house is everyone’s dream, but it’s a very difficult task as it requires skills and a lot of money to perform restoration. Having your home restored by a professional restorer can cost you much higher than your expectations. You can try to restore your home yourself, but as it demands safety it’s recommended to do some research to do it right with full perfection and precautions.
