Kitchen hacks – fresh-baked cookies anytime!

How many of you love warm, fresh-baked cookies?

Now how many of you love whipping together a batch (from scratch) every time that cookie-craving hits?

Sure you could buy pre-made cookie dough and cut it up every time you want a sweet treat

OR

you could make your own from scratch, save lots of money, look like a ‘June Cleaver Mom’, and have dozens ready in minutes!

I know which way I’d go.

Just call me “Junie C”.

One of our favourite treats in this house is […]

Spring Cleaning – cleaning blinds

I wrote a post about cleaning blinds a couple/few years ago, and I believe it’s been that long since I’ve done them – how embarrassing!

There are a few chores around the home that I really dislike doing: cleaning my shower, cleaning the oven and cleaning my blinds.  Give me toilets and stairs over these anytime!  I find cleaning my shower to be so incredibly labour-intensive and it takes at least an hour to do a decent job.  Cleaning the oven […]

DIY Round tray from a concrete form

Hey 100T2D readers!  I’ve got a GREAT project for you today, and a sneak peek at another great project that I’m showcasing over on House of Wood later this week:  I figured out how to make a DIY round tray from a concrete form!!!

I’m so excited because I’ve racked my brain for months to figure out how to build/make a round tray without wasting a lot of wood, involving a router or creating pretty elaborate jig – and today […]

In-cupboard hair dryer holder

Are you sick of my bathroom yet?

Can you hang in there for one last post on how I organized it by making an in-cupboard hair dryer holder?

Prior to my bathroom makeover the other day, I was using a store-bought hair dryer holder that just hung over my bathroom cupboard door – and it worked perfectly – except that over time it scuffed and scratched up my cabinetry.  While painting my bathroom cabinets wasn’t a ton of work, it’s certainly […]

How to keep an area rug from moving around

Have you fallen in with the trend of adding an area rug over carpeting?  It’s sharp – I admit I love the look – but what do you do when your area rug won’t stop bunching and wrinkling?  How do you keep an area rug from moving around?

Small Storage Crates

So what did you think of the bathroom makeover yesterday?  Pretty cool right?  Well, the outside of the cabinets wasn’t the only transformation I made in our master ensuite – I also upped our storage and organization game with a few small storage crates.

This came about because my Dad is obsessed with condiment trays.  He is constantly buying trays, boxes, bins and organizers to carry his ketchup, mustard and relish out to his patio – I get it…  kind […]

Painting bathroom cabinets

I was provided with Rust-Oleum Krud Kutter and Bullseye 1-2-3 primer for this “Painting bathroom cabinets” post.

My bathroom has bugged me for a little while now.  Our cabinets are 13 years old and are showing the wear and tear of the years everywhere.  Hubby doesn’t seem to notice, but they are glaring to me.

Come on!  How can you NOT notice?!  (On the upside, if […]

The key to gooey rice krispie treats

I wrote a similar article to this back in 2014 but it didn’t get any traction?  Could be because I dyed my super-gooey rice krispie treats green in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day – which I still think was a cute tribute – but perhaps wasn’t a very appetizing image.  (What!? You guys don’t pin green rice krispie treats?!)

Fair enough, I wouldn’t either.
