Cute and Unique Ways to Reuse Eggshells

March 27, 2020
Spring is here and Easter is around the corner, the season of plants in bloom and animals giving birth go hand in hand with eggs, a symbol or rebirth and fertility. Eggs are also associated with Easter, a holiday that celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

It's no surprise we love decorating eggs to celebrate the holiday. There are thousands of ways to decorate Easter eggs, and many times those eggs we use are faux eggs. 

I was a bit intrigued on how

This garage organization has been a full saga these past couple of months. I make progress on one front, while the other gets completely messed up.

Good morning friends,

Last week was one of the longest weeks I've ever experienced in my entire life, and it wasn't because I had to stay home, I love being home. It was a long week for me and I'm sure that it was for you too, because of the uncertainty the world is facing during this pandemic.

While looking through these pictures I took of my son's room over a week ago, it felt so insignificant to post about simple changes to a teen room when our lives are on hold and we're faced with fighting a war against an enemy we can't even see.

Garage tool storage doesn't have to be frustrating!

One of the reasons my garage was a huge mess was because I didn't have a proper system to store all the tools I've been collecting lately. At the end of last year I built a cabinet to store drills and batteries, and it's been a life saver to keep both, drills and batteries in one place + an easy way to charge those batteries. You can check that built right HERE.

However, I still had trouble trying to keep all the small tools and tool accessories, organized. Why? Because I didn't have the proper storage solutions for those tools. Would you believe it if I told you, this plastic organizer you see in the picture below, was what I've been using for the past 10 years to store scissors, blades for many of my tools, chisels, gloves, etc. etc.

YEP.  Pitiful. 😔

Paint is a wonderful way to refresh your home for Spring. The cooler temperatures are perfect to grab a brush or a paint roller and give a wall or an entire room a new color. You can also freshen up a piece of furniture or the front door, or just a simple tray! So many possibilities.

Today I'm sharing with you how to bring new life to a tired piece of furniture. Nothing like a fresh coat of paint to make old, dated furniture look new again, which is what happened to this beautiful hutch. Hard to believe this was a drab and dark piece!
