DIY Wall Shelf with Hooks

This DIY wall shelf with hooks was made entirely from scrap wood so my only expenditure was for the hooks themselves.  You can make your own in less than an hour!

How were your Thanksgiving/Black Friday festivities?  I hope everyone had a fun family weekend?

As a general rule, I prefer to do my Holiday shopping in my pajamas online, but a friend told me about “the most amazing bra” from Lululemon.  Lulu did have an online sale, but I had to […]

How to keep track of paint colors

This is a simple and inexpensive way to keep track of paint colors in your home – so you can shop with confidence, touch-up with ease and give an accurate colour name to friends that comment “I love your walls!”

I’m switching back and forth between the Canadian/English “colour” and the American “color” so that everyone that wants to keep track of paint colours can Google this page.

If you […]

Organizing Your Purse

This is my purse.

I have a few purses, none of them fancy, but 99% of the time I just leave all of my stuff in this comfy bag.

It has my blog embroidered on it, it has a few pockets and is big enough to hold everything (and the kitchen sink).

Build a Laundry Folding Table Over Your Washer and Dryer

Use these simple building plans to build your own folding table over your washer and dryer.

The other day you caught a sneak-peek at my new folding table in my unfinished laundry room.  I know, I know, I’ve built a laundry dresser/folding table before, but the thing was a beast and it blocked the doorway into the room, so it had to go.

This time I measured for a free-standing folding table (meaning you don’t have to attach it to […]

My FREE Family Command Centre

You don’t have to spend mucho-buckos to create a family command centre, in fact, our family command centre came in at a whopping $0!  Here’s how you can do it too!

I was futzing in the garage the other day and debating whether to refinish this free coffee table that a friend had dropped off.

Worn out coffee table, damaged coffee table, old side table

The colour was dated and the finish was pretty […]

Workshop Organization – battery charging station and tool manual

It’s been a rainy weekend here in SW Ontario and while our lawns and gardens desperately needed the rain, it is a bit of a bummer when I can’t get outside and enjoy a sunny afternoon with a book.  It does however, lend itself as an opportunity to get a bit organized – workshop organization in particular.
I’m fairly tidy once I’ve completed a project; I put my tools away and get rid of as much sawdust as I can with […]

Central Vac Hose Reel

I wasn’t going to post this article, it’s just TOO simple. The fact that I haven’t thought of it before today certainly ranks as one of my bigger “Duh!” moments, so there’s also the embarrassment factor.

BUT, since I hadn’t thought of it in 13 years of living in our home, perhaps there are others out there that haven’t either?  Tell me I’m not alone folks, I’m not the sharpest knife the drawer, but I hate to think I’m the dullest.

Up […]
