It’s summertime, and that means you probably don’t need quite as many blankets as you were using beforehand.
We know, we know - your kids and partner always want to crank the AC way lower than you want it to be, maybe you live in a part of the country where the nights get real cold, and you’ll need some blankets around, but not nearly as many as you do during the winter months, right?
If there’s one thing every home seems to have a ton of these days, it’s cables and cords everywhere.
The sun is shining, the birds are singing, the grills are grilling...and you’re probably already dreading the amount of yardwork you have to do.
Don’t despair! Now that the sun is out there’s plenty to do, but you have plenty of time to do it. Instead of getting caught up in one massive project and getting all stressed out, why not try to start the summer right with a few quick projects you can get done in an afternoon or so?
Particularly in these days of Pinterest boards, DIY spirit, and Etsy crafts, a lot of people still like to keep a craft room handy for projects.
Whatever you’re into - sewing, painting, scrapbooking, etc - keeping a dedicated space for your craft projects and supplies is a great way to stay productive and keep everything organized, which is always a nice bonus right?
Far more than just ‘the thing on top of your fireplace’, fireplace mantels have become a centerpiece for decoration in the living room. Over the years they’ve become more shelf-like in design, allowing you to use them as a space to show off your treasured photos, home decor, or anything else you can fit up there (that can be safely stored near a fireplace, of course).
The nice thing about them is that in most cases they’re pretty modular and replaceable. Most modern homes don’t have a built-in mantel which means you can install whatever one you like most over the fireplace – kind of nice that you can make it your own, right?
