Okay…I know I’m not alone. Everyone loves to have plenty of closet space, correct? Honest truth is pretty much no one wants to clean them. (yes, I’m pointing at you. tee hee) Today, I’m going to show you how to refresh, organize and get a deep down closet spring cleaning. Yes, it can be done AND even be fun. This is my closet “before” that is about to explode with dirty laundry and all!
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.
My family of 8 is home 24/7 and we cook/bake our meals from scratch 3 times a day. We have installed a double oven in our kitchen remodel and it’s bliss to have that thing in tip-top shape. Our routine around here is I offer this job up to one of my older kids so they can
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!!
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.
Do you like to change things up from time to time? It’s not a new revelation that I enjoy change, especially making things broken and worn new again. Sometimes I begin a little adventure because I have to and other times because I want to. Today is an “I want to” kinda project. You see, this old chest of drawers has been tucked in my sons’ closet for few years and I am relieving it of its hardworking status. It is now time for it to be come a glorified upcycled map cabinet. Yahoo!!
Can you see my vision for this? Well, no worries if not. I’m here to show you my nutty ways. mwahahaha…
We may have a sloth’s pace when working on our home, but not by any decision of our own. The key is we get it done. Folks, we are so close to wrapping up our family room remodel that I’m brimming with excitement. For one, it will feel good to be done. Two, I need my house back! haha. Stuffing the contents of the biggest room into the other rooms of your home is not so fun. However, we are appreciating the home we do have. With that, I’m sharing how to update your fireplace insert with a painted fireplace tutorial. Here is said fireplace in question…
Maybe the holidays have passed and you’re looking to purge, or maybe it’s time to drag out the decorations and you’re debating on changing it up this year. Either way, don’t pitch or donate your unwanted holiday decor. I’m going to show you one of the ways you can upcycle old Christmas decor into something new for your home. It’s Trash to Treasure Tuesday, so stick around to see what my blogger friends have for you too.
Let’s pretend for a minute that this set of cutesy snowman art is no long your fancy. I admit, even I have taken things to the thrift store like this just to be rid of it. However, let’s look at them in a different light.
You gotta love the times when you can get together with your friends and do the things you love. Today is that day for my Trash to Treasure gals and me. We adore creating projects to inspire you and are eager to share our handiwork for this month’s fun. While you will see their work in a bit, today I’m sharing the second table from my curbside haul. This rusty gem is about to become an upcycled farmhouse tray. Oh yeah!
‘Tis the season for holiday decor! One might not think of someone else’s trash as potential for beautifying your home, however, that just depends on your vision. Right? Take a peek below. I yanked this unlikely pair out of my neighbor’s trash across the street over a couple weeks time. Today I’m turning the tiered table on the right into an upcycled Christmas tree. (giveaway alert!)
No worries though, because I’ll get to the table on the left next time. I can’t wait for Trash to Treasure Tuesday!
