Another DIY, A Container From A Chocolate Spread

So I kept on buying this sandwich chocolate spread lately, I am not fond of chocolate but my kids does, what I am looking after for this chocolate spread is the container it is used. Right after it is finished we used this as a glass, in that way I will no longer buy glasses anymore, I am recycling the glass container of the chocolate spread, it doesn’t look so obvious that it came from that chocolate spread, it looks like I purchased it from the mall because of its design. And since I already have numbers of them, when I got a tumbler holder from work, my sister covered the glass with it and displayed it in the counter together with our pictures frame and some cutie stuff. We now used it as pen container.  I didn’t expect that this glass container from the chocolate spread will have so many uses, another DIY in the family.

DIY Partition For Our Cabinet

This has no partition before but during that time that my sister went home from Singapore. We don’t where to put these pans at all because the rack that we used for these pans are used now for the microwave ovens. Yes we have two because my sister brought one from Singapore.

My sister got this idea to put a partition in one of our cabinet below the sink. It was nice because we were able to put all the pans there. The partition is actually from our closet door, it was took off because Faith ride on it. I hid it for future use and I was right because we have cut it in 3 parts so the first part will be use as division. Anyway people here’s our DIY division for our cabinet.

Recycled Foam

I have 2 bed foams too long ago when we were still in our rented home. I bought it because my cousins will be arriving and will stay in our house for a while to attend in my cousin’s wedding. Their province is too far from us, the traveling time was 12 hours before they can reach here. It has been years that the bed foams were just stuck in the corner. The cover is messy at all that once you are going to lie down on it I am sure you could not sleep at all.

My sister noticed these two bed foams in the corner. She put it out and cut it and makes it square. Our coach does not have pillows; she used that foam to make it our pillow couch. She bought a pillow cover for those foams that she cut it square. She used some foams for their bed pillows. She has some spare for the cover and now they have the fluffiest pillow on their bed.

My sister being so creative did not fade over the years. This is I always remember her when she was still in Singapore she can create simple things to being fabulous especially with home decorations and accessories.

5 Simple Ways to Make a New House Feel Like Home

Buying a new house can be a wonderful experience, but it can also take some getting used to. No matter if it’s a starter home or a dream home, there will be a transition period between moving in to when the house actually feels like home. This timeframe will change from person to person, but luckily, there are things you can do to speed up the process.

Paint

One of the simplest ways you can make your new house feel like home is to paint. Chances are you and the previous owner don’t have the exact same taste, and this is okay. Paint is cheap and easy to do on your own, which means it’s a DIY project you can tackle right away. Choose paint colors that are more your style and taste, and decide which rooms should be painted which colors. Then, get to work. It will be truly amazing how just one coat of paint can take a house and make it feel like you actually belong there.

Add Your Style

If you already have boxes filled with décor and items that will make your house feel like yours, then get to work unpacking and setting these items up. If not, though, that’s okay too. A great way to make a house yours is to add your own style to it. This is an opportunity for you to go shopping and buy items that will help make the house feel more like yours. Getting a new couch or even buying new accent lighting you love can make a big difference.

You should also add your style to things that may not reflect your style. For example, if you’re not a fan of hardwood floors, but your new home is filled with them, consider area rugs throughout. An area rug can improve your living room by adding a touch of your own style. It will bring the room together, and you will feel more comfortable in your living space when it represents what you like.

Personalize

While adding your own style and personalizing may sound like the same thing; they’re not. To personalize means to bring your own personality or your own life into the home. This is best done through pictures or knickknacks that represent you. For example, adding family pictures throughout the house can make it feel like a home. If you have other personal accomplishments, such as awards, you can display those too.

Make it Smell Right

There are certain smells that you associate with your home, but your new house probably has smells of its own. Invest in air fresheners or candles that offer a smell you enjoy, and use those throughout the house in order to make it smell like a home you recognize. Even using the same detergents and soaps you used in the old house can be enough to make it feel like home, so keep this in mind while you’re shopping for necessities.

Stay Organized

You had a flow at your old house, and this is interrupted with a new home. While the new house likely doesn’t have the same layout as the old house, keeping your items in a similar organization can help make the transition process easier. For example, if you had a junk drawer in your old kitchen, put a junk drawer in your new kitchen. If you kept extra bedsheets in a guest bedroom, keep your extra sheets in the guest room at this house. When you familiarize your new home with the flow of your old home, your routine will fall into place.
