I love when I receive an order to design and cut vinyl decals to make a pattern on a wall! I have cut a lot of gold hearts and dots over the last few years and love them!! But there so many other fun shapes and colours to choose from…Read More
As an organizational freak I love to label everything and today I wanted to share how happy I am I finally labeled the toy bins! I kept putting it off because I wasn't sure if it would make a difference with my boys, but it did…Read More
I had to share these amazing pictures from my client. I offer typical hands on Interior Decorating services, but I also offer consultation services for the DIY-ers out there! With this client, we had two physical meetings and then the rest of my services were done over phone, email and text. She did most of the work and I advised her in her decisions and ideas…
Our huge collection of kids books were being stored in a short Ikea billy bookcase in the playroom. I decided to add a craft desk in the playroom (blog post on that later), but that meant the books had to go somewhere else…Read More
Papers, toys, craft supplies and endless random items are everywhere in my house. We are only a family of four and I feel overwhelmed all the time. I was finding the dropping place for almost everything was at the end of our countertop, right before you go downstairs.
I didn't have a good spot for organization on the main floor, I lack wall space and cupboard space but when you open the door to go downstairs I have a blank wall for a little organization centre. After some Pinterest research and figuring out the needs of my family, I came up with a simple layout, which includes a magnet board, shelf, clip board (holds our chore chart), calendar and file folders.
With back to school approaching I thought it was the perfect time to share my finished command centre and one I did for a client.
Originally I was going to make a sign that said, If not now, when? But my husband remembered this one from our childhood and I went with it instead.
For my clients, I included a chalkboard, magnet board, her calendar, file folders and a cute wall vinyl. We also switched out furniture and put an Ikea expedit shelf under for added storage.
Now go get ready for the kids to go back to school!!
A while back I mentioned I was sewing curtains on my personal Facebook page and had a few requests from friends to hem their curtains. Today I thought I would help all of you who have curtains that look like this.
I purchased iron-on hem fuser from Fabricland. It cost me $3.49.
Update: I have also seen this at Jysk for $2.99 each.
First you hang your curtains! Take a ruler and figure out how much you need to take up. I needed to take up 5 inches on one panel and between 5 and 4 inches on the other panel. I don't think I hung my rod level... or maybe the curtains were off? Lets go with the curtains, so it wasn't my fault!
Turn up hem and press. Notice, my curtains are still hung!
Place the tape along the top inside edge.
Cover with damp cloth. With iron setting on "cotton", press firmly for 15-20 seconds.
Let cool before you take it off your ironing board and your done! It was really that easy.
Update: This method doesn't work with silky material. I learned the hard way!
