Spring 2018 One Room Challenge – Week 3

April 19th, 2018|DECOR|

It’s week 3 of the Spring 2018 One Room Challenge and I have a confession to make…

I am not a natural designer.

I know what I like, but putting a room together beyond paint and DIY projects is a little out of my depth. Scale, texture, palette, style – not my forte by any stretch of the imagination.

For my Week 3 ORC post I’d like to share […]

DIY Cat Tree

April 16th, 2018|BUILD IT, DIY|

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you will know that we’ve had a new addition to our family – Baby Luna Grayce – an 8 week old kitten that has stolen all of our hearts.

The thing about new kittens though is that they have these spurts of energy that usually result in some kind of damage; climbing curtains, falling between the stair rails, tipped plants and scratching.  Oh my God the […]

Spring 2018 One Room Challenge – Basement Makeover

April 12th, 2018|DECOR, DIY|

Today’s the day bloggers everywhere showcase the progress they’ve made for their projects in the Spring 2018 One Room Challenge.  I’ve submitted my parent’s basement – which houses a theatre room section and a home gym section – as my challenge entry.One Room Challenge Spring 2018

This week was all about boxing up all the shit items that have turned their home gym into a hoarder’s haven.

I wouldn’t say that I’m […]

Happy Birthday Madison!

April 9th, 2018|Uncategorised|

Twelve years ago today, well yesterday actually, I was admitted to the hospital to be induced because the little lump in my tummy refused to move out.  She was stubborn even before she came into the world.  Somewhere around 16 hours, a fainting Hubby and a c-section later, Miss Madison blessed our lives.

Today I/we want to wish her the very best 12th birthday any little girl young lady could ever have:

To my beautiful baby girl that I accidentally dropped on […]

The best way to deep clean your shower

April 8th, 2018|CLEAN|

Yes, hire someone else and rebuild your entire shower from scratch.  Failing the whopping budget for that, the easiest and best way I’ve found to deep clean your shower is to use the HomeRight SteamMachine.

(This is not a sponsored post however the links to purchase the Steam Machine are affiliate links – which means if you buy, 100Things2Do will get a small commission for sending […]

Spring 2018 One Room Challenge – Basement makeover

April 6th, 2018|DECOR, DIY|

I am a couple of days late in posting this, but I was back and forth on whether or not to submit my parent’s basement makeover into the Spring 2018 edition of the One Room Challenge.

The basement needs a LOT of work, and the basement makeover will be dramatic – but I wasn’t sure if I would have 6 weeks worth of content to share on […]

DIY side table / small bookshelf

April 4th, 2018|BUILD IT, DECOR, DIY|

As you may (or may not) know, I am a guest contributor over on the amazing, incredible, brilliant blog House of Wood.  Over the past few months, I have shared a few builds that you would not have seen on 100Things2Do like a super-sized shoe rack, a DIY upholstered ottoman, and this week’s awesome DIY; a mid-century-modern style DIY side table / mini-bookshelf.

I won’t share the full building plans here, but I can give you a […]

Simple Step Stool

April 2nd, 2018|BUILD IT|

Good morning sunshine(s)!

The sun is out, I saw a robin last week and even though the grass is still a dead-brown colour and the temperatures are barely above 0°, I’ve been working in my she-shop with the garage doors open!!

Wahoo!  (I’ve been freezing my kibibees off, but just being able to open the doors to let some sunlight in has given me a shot of Vitamin D happiness!)

I have some pretty big projects coming to the blog in April (like […]

Yoga Mat Storage / Treadmill table

April 1st, 2018|BUILD IT, ORGANIZE|

I’m in the midst of a home gym makeover for my parents and in doing so I noticed that they were missing an essential piece of “equipment”…  something for yoga mat storage and/or a treadmill table.

No, they aren’t yogi’s, but they do “enjoy” walking on the treadmill or riding the stationary bike, so even without yoga mat storage they still needed a treadmill-height table to rest their drinks and sweaty towels on.  Adding rungs for barbells, foam rollers and/or yoga […]

The easiest way to clean window tracks (chemical free)

March 30th, 2018|CLEAN|

At least the calendar says it should be Spring even if the weather isn’t totally Spring-like, which means it’s time to get to work on all of those areas of the home where dirt and crud have built up all winter long…  like window tracks.

Mine are disgusting – beyond the normal black crud that tends to accumulate – I’ve actually managed to cultivate some quarter-sized, hairy balls of mould in my window tracks as well.  No one wants quarter-sized […]
