Boy Bathroom Ideas…the ever popular i-plunge.

If you have boys you hate bathrooms! Am I right? It doesn’t matter if they are two or forty two!  Some mornings I need disposable gloves and a hazmat suit.  And,  the moment you reach to raise the toilet seat…. make the visual stop!  I will never understand how a towel  never meets a towel bar, [Read more...]

Quick Vinyl Solution

blue tape transfer paper 2

Just wanted to share a quick vinyl solution when you find yourself out of transfer paper. This is what worked for me! I use blue painter’s tape in  a pinch!  Simply tear off what you need (you can layer it if your piece is wide).  Make sure to reduce/remove  the blue tape’s adhesive by adhering the tape to other [Read more...]

Vinyl or Sticker Project: Kids’ Decor

vinylafter1

*Expressions Vinyl contributed the neon vinyl used for this project. Last summer I posted on my blog, I’m Not a Trophy Wife, how I turned foam mat squares, often used beneath exercise equipment, into a wall display for my son’s room. My goal was to add stickers and vinyl   incorporating my son’s interests.  So when [Read more...]

Milk Can Transformation

I found this milk can at a yard sale a few years ago.  I dragged it home where my {first} husband expressed concern that I might be exhibiting signs of hoarder-ness.   He likes new!  He doesn’t like the idea of someone else’s stuff taking up space in our home.  So I did  what I do with [Read more...]

One of my boys had a sleepover the other night and I wanted to have a little fun with their lunch. I had made the vinyl for my juice carafe last Halloween and never got around to actually applying it to the carafe.  Which makes me sound like I am either incredibly busy or busy [Read more...]

Fun with Vinyl without a machine… it’s possible!

I used to call them stickers. But, I guess the new term is vinyl! I am saving for a Silhoutte machine.. I think. It keeps getting bumped down on my wish list because of other needs like antivirus software or new court shoes for my son. So, in the meantime I discovered that stickers , [Read more...]

Vintage Tool Box Makeover

During my annual garage clean up (see post here for a few ideas) I found this vintage (real metal) tool box.  It was empty, taking up valuable shelf space and it was my {first} husband’s grandfather’s tool box.  He was the original DIY guy!  And, he clearly passed down his talents to my very handy [Read more...]

Recycle Can: Bright Idea to Remind Family to Recycle

DSC_0055

After my garage cleanup a few weeks ago I wanted to pretty up the recycle can.  We take recycling seriously around our house.  Actually, one of us takes recycling seriously.  My {first} husband is slightly embarrassed by this project.  What will the neighbors think of this neon trashcan? The cans, bottles and boxes stacks up quickly! [Read more...]

Got {Tennis} Balls? Rounding up the balls!

balls here 2 vinyl tab rs

My fantasy is if I label everything in my house, my home will be neat and organized. Hey, it’s my fantasy! The truth is I spend more time choosing the fonts for my labels.  I get so wrapped up in deciding between the Times Roman or  the Chalkboard font that by the time I choose a font I can’t remember [Read more...]

Boys’ Bathroom Decor

DSC_0018

Our boys’ bathroom is the one room in the house that I can say I am content with the current decor.  I have made small changes along the way. But, for the most part, I am happy with this space. How often does that happen?  This is above the door leading to the shower and [Read more...]
