Chemical-Free Oven Cleaning with HomeRight Steam Machine

Who doesn’t love a shortcut to a chore? We all have different tasks that need done on daily basis, and then there are those that we kinda keep pushing to the back-burner because, let’s face it…they’re no fun. I love a clean oven, but doing the cleaning is not one of my favorite things to do. However, having the right tools to get it done quickly, efficiently, and healthily are key. Remember my motto: #toolsoverjewels – oh yeah! I’m going to show you a chemical-free oven cleaning that is actually fun. Brace yourselves…hahaha.

Why I Love My HomeRight Finish Max Paint Sprayer

There’s no denying that when you find something that makes your life easier and affords you more time for other tasks or pleasures in life, the first thing you want to do is tell others about it so they can benefit too. That, my friends, is what this post is all about. A few weeks ago I shared with you how much I adored my new toy, a paint sprayer called the HomeRight Finish Max , when I worked on this farmhouse dinette set (this post described using paint and poly).

Well, now that summer’s here and I’m able to be outside more doing my work, I’m having a blast (literally!) getting furniture done lickety-split. For instance, I’ve had this baby highchair needing a facelift, and if you’ve ever painted a chair before, you know how un-fun it is to paint spindles.

Ugh… you’re constantly checking for drips, incessantly brushing hoping for an even coat, right? All these reasons are exactly why I love my HomeRight sprayer. Yay!!

Farmhouse Table Makeover with HomeRight Sprayer

The best things in life are free, right? That’s how I got this table set…for FREE. Thank you Craigslist, and lady who tried to sell the table, but got so sick of it being in her garage that she gave it away. I’m feeling a farmhouse table makeover coming on. hee hee hee.

I’ve been there done that, so I felt for her. This set also wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for my mother, who took her truck to go pick it up for a pregnant momma (ME).

That is how long I had this table set… for over a year, just like this desk. I knew that painting those spindles on those chairs would take F.O.R.E.V.E.R. and there was no way I was going to do it unless I had a paint sprayer.

Enter in my new toy… {dramatic music begins to play and commercial-man voice reads…}

“The HomeRight Finish Max Sprayer allows you to apply a professional-looking finish to your furniture and cabinets. The indoor rated air turbine powers the spraying of thin materials like varnishes and stains. The tight spray pattern of the Finish Max HVLP is ideal for finishing smaller, contoured surfaces like deck spindles, furniture and lattice.”

What’s HVLP you say? Just High-Volume-Low-Pressure, which translates to lots of goodness without much effort. As a gift to self, no one can deny that a paint sprayer is a good thing for someone who paints furniture, right? I read all the reviews (by the way, this entire post is my opinion and totally my own) and heard nothing but good stuff about how easy it is to clean and easy to use. Sold. Read more

Upcycled Louver Door Corner Cabinet

Spring for me is the awakening of nature, a much-needed break from the cold winter days (which I have yet to have), and the ever-fun city spring cleanup. haha. I am serious! What could be more fun that looking for free things that can not only be saved from the dump, but turned into beautiful things, right? Take for instance this set of wooden louver doors. I instantly grabbed them up and am going to show you how they became an upcycled louver door shelf. (giveaway alert!)

Thrifted Candelabras Meet Shabby Chic

You would think that after all these years that I have been doing trashure hunting and fleatiquing I would be used to finding a diamond in the rough, right? Maybe I should be sorta numb by now to coming upon a rare treat. Thankfully, that doesn’t happen and I still get a jolt when I see things like this set of thrifted candelabras while on an errand.

Here’s the story as it played out. My kids and I walked into the store and I instantly saw this pair displayed on a table. They were in the middle of the store and I had to wait until some people moved out of the way to be able to get close to them. My brain is saying, “Please don’t see them, I saw them first!” Read more

Though many think Christmas is the time to go all out, I say, why wait?  I mean, if you love to decorate, do it all the time.
