This dress-up closet is definitely a DIY kind of project. Nothing difficult about it at all. Your kid(s) will love it. It takes a couple hours to build. It’ll let you be the hero for the day. And it all comes from a single sheet of plywood!
My wife n I LOVE TO GARDEN! ….. Well, my wife sure does, anyway, lol. And being the good/supportive husband that I am, I love to help her out with it as much as I can. But since I’m out there as I am, I figured I’d do some of my own planting, too. And this year I’ve chosen potatoes, in a five-gallon bucket!
Everyone here at our house HATES using a dishwasher! Well…. I do, anyway, and that pretty much means the same thing. lol I think they’re only used because they free your time up (which is awesome, but eh), but cost wise and cleanliness, they’re virtually the same. Anyway, our dishwasher went out and I didn’t want to just stick another one in, so instead I replaced it with some pull out drying racks that still used the original racks from the former dishwasher. It’s not for everyone, but it’s still a great alternative while still making full use of the space.
Hey there! So today I thought I’d share how I made our garden beds. I don’t have a pic to go along with every step, unfortunately, but it’s a pretty straight-forward set-up. And I think it came out pretty good. Most of it was already owned or I found it for free. I’m still planning to add another layer to make it taller/ less of a strain on our backs as well as add a removable hoop greenhouse over the top of it. Big ideas, but we’ll see how it goes! Still works out just great as it is!
From a child’s toy inside the home to the inside door-panel of your car outside, everything breaks. Everything seemingly rips, cracks, tears, breaks off, blah blah blah. Most of those things are not worth anyone’s time and effort to fix and repair; especially living in this grossly “throw-away” world we do, these days. But the least we, as parents, can do is TRY!

The kitchen island in this house is so very under-rated at times. I literally use it everyday as a prep surface for meals and also as a table for any projects I have that need a smaller work surface. This counter-top in particular is actually quite unique in that it was made using the original 100+ year old kitchen floor boards from the full kitchen remodel I did in here a few years ago. Now, the counter-top itself doesn’t look too bad in the photos, but really, it has it’s shares of blemishes. A few extra dings and nicks in it from the last 6 months. All to be expected, of course, but it’s still that time of year again when it needs re-finished to help keep it protected and looking good for years to come.
Beautiful day out, today. Sun is out, no wind, up into the 60’s for a change. Hhhhhhhhh Such a nice day, Bruiser and I decided to walk around out back for a lil while. As we were exploring the wilderness (our fenced in back-yard), we noticed the standing tree-swing from last year was still out of commission. So, we decided that that would be our project for the day.
Smoke alarms. Super necessary in life. They’re required for all homes and businesses legally, and really, if you’re too cheap to buy an alarm for your house and kids, then WTF? But just like changing HVAC filters , while they’re super necessary for your home, they still need maintained.
It’s that time again! To change out your HVAC filters, of course! What else could I have possibly been talking about?? lol But yea, go check your filter if you haven’t in a while. It’s something that doesn’t take a whole lot of effort, but will keep the air you breathe inside your home cleaner and keep those furnaces and AC’s running a lil longer.
