De Cluttering Some Stuffs

 photo 13680636_10209580189117679_8447227923776984431_n.jpg

One Sunday when I arrived from school, I was so interested to have our house look tidy and new. I asked the kids to help me. My plan was just to arrange the books in our TV rack but after arranging some stuffs, I thought to transfer the TV rack to other side.

From the day we moved in here, our TV was always on the right side near the door. It has been like almost three years that we are here and yet, I did not re arrange some stuffs, it stays the way it is ever since.

Right after it is done, I took a picture of it and I felt so accomplished. Mj and Mariel were there to help me dragging the couch, the table and all that stuff. My home looks so neat and so squeaky clean after all. Although Mj and Mariel told me to buy another TV rack, I am looking forward to it but I need to settle my car yet. The leaking is still there, and it requires lots of money to repair the leak because it is situated in the injection pump. So I have to go now, for the meantime what I can only offer is this picture. Thank God, after being hiatus again I am here agonizing to update my blog and update my house. LOL

Wine Crates are Versatile

Custom crates can be built to order that will fit the particular needs and sizes that you may have for a wide variety of projects. Wooden crates have been made for over 1,000 years and differ in size based on the dimensions needed for a specific use. They can be open or can be closed with a slatted sliding lid, be with or without hand holes for easy carrying, can be stackable or different sizes in a nesting design, and much more depending on their requirements.

Wooden wine crates, especially those created by select wineries to store and protect their precious wines, are terrific conversation pieces and can also be turned into stunning imaginative interior decorations. The vintage ones even have the unique logo of the winery where they were produced, many of which are masterpieces of royalty, priceless art, and a record of historical moments.

Those older crates can be used “as is” with a “shabby-chic” look, or they can be repaired, refurbished, and hand-sanded to remove imperfections, provide an appealing and smooth texture, and can be restored to their original flawless perfection.

To make new wine crates look old and vintage, the easy, quick, and cheap way is to put on three coats of a pine varnish and then look online for a wine dealer’s printable form of actual vintage labels to transfer onto the crate.

Wine crates not only hold wine, but they quickly capture the imagination. Ask your family members and friends to save their empty wine crates and give them to you. The crates can be used as storage units of all shapes and sizes, décor of various sorts in any room of the house or outdoors, or inexpensive store displays if you are in business. More uses include neatly keeping LP records and magazines, as flower holders with numerous arrangements of fresh or artificial blooms, made into a coffee table with storage, as small mountable shelves in the kitchen or bathroom, a bookcase with several crates put together, in the garden to hold tools, or any other do-it-yourself idea that comes to mind.

Furnishing a House

My friend recently told me that her and her husband were selling their house and moving into their cabin. Their cabin is located near a large metropolitan area and that area has more to offer their family. I wonder if they will have cabin furniture or some other style. Rustic looking cabin furniture would certainly match the décor of most any cabin where as mixing and matching contemporary furniture may not enhance the look of the cabin. I don’t know what she will do, but I really like thinking of furnishing a house from the beginning where it is a cabin, a colonial a cape cod or any other kind of house. It is fun to think of what I would furnish the house with, especially for our two girls.

Bright and Beautiful

When the home is bright, I am certain that everyone will be so comfortable of whatever they are doing, the kids will not be having a hard time studying their lessons, the mom could see the recipe book in the kitchen clearly when she is cooking, and the dad could read the newspaper properly. So the lights that you would put in your house takes a very significant role in your family’s life, and we must admit it, we are dreaming of a trendy fashionable lightings design, most likely I desire the same thing too. I am actually adored the Murray Feiss lighting for how many months now, and I am saving every penny I have just to purchase one for my rented home. I just hope no emergency would come up soon that ruin my plan and used my savings for that purpose. Wish me all the best of lucks!
