Little Toolbox

My children had lots of fun building this little toolbox with a bit of help from us to assemble. They enjoyed painting and decorating this caddy. Children can use this caddy to keep their work area neat and organized. This handmade caddy would also make a wonderful gift to give dads and granddads.

Our Completed DIY Modern, Eco-Friendly #BathroomReno

bathroom renovation
We started a #BathroomReno project in the beginning of November, as a weekend and some days in the evening type of project. Having one full washroom and a powder room in our home is not convenient for a growing family like us, so instead of moving to a bigger home we wanted to upgrade ours to accommodate all the family members.

Delta Accessories to Spark Up Our Bathroom

Every bathroom to be comfortable and complete needs useful, strong accessories. We used the Lahara collection Delta accessories to spark up our #BathroomReno. Adding themed accessories gives a unique, and useful touch to our bathroom. We installed the Lahara toilet paper holder, towel ring, 24" towel bar and robe hook, which gives a wonderful accent to the entire bathroom.

Elegance and Convenience in Our Shower Stall

There are lots of benefits in having a hand shower in the shower stall. I like using the hand shower since it gives us the freedom of movement. It is convenient for everyone in the family with different heights to use. Having a hand shower in a home with children, seniors and pets is helpful. I find using the hand shower to clean the shower stall surface, allows us to easily remove soap residue and grime. Using the handheld shower also helps conserve water.

Adding Lahara Touch2O Technology Faucet To Our Bathroom

You may already know about our DIY #BathroomReno project, we started a couple of months ago. I am glad our hard work during some evenings and weekends are paying off and the project is coming together to reflect our vision. With so many options available in today's market, my husband and I planned to invest and make our bathroom modern and eco-friendly.

Planning Our #BathroomReno DIY Project

home depot bathroom renovation
As our family grows and children are becoming bigger, it is easier for us to do upgrades and renovations to fit the needs and comfort of our growing families rather than moving. During fall many of you like us, plan on doing indoor renovations and look for helpful information. Doing the renovations ourself is lots of fun, as it gives us the comfort of using any product we like and saves us a lot of money.

Dr. Seuss' The Lorax

Dr. Seuss' The Lorax movie is arriving on Blu-ray 3D and 2D combo pack on August 7th.  The story of the movie is based on the best-selling children's book by Dr. Seuss.
The combo pack has three brand new mini-movies, making of the mini-movies, deleted scenes, the screening process, tutorial on how to draw the Lorax, Humming-fish and a Bar-ba-loot and many more.

We enjoyed the colourful story.  The references were cute and was fun to watch for children and adults.  It is a thought provoking movie about saving our trees and how important trees are for breathing, fresh air and our environment.

The movie is created by the same people as Despicable Me and Hop, so you know how good it is.
Here is a synopsis of the story.
The imaginative world of Dr. Seuss comes to life like never before in this visually spectacular adventure.  Twelve-year old Ted will do anything to find a real live Truffula Tree to impress the girl of his dreams.  When Ted embarks on his journey, he discovers the incredible story of the Lorax; a grumpy but charming creature who speaks for the trees and about what happened to all the trees.

Boys and Girls club of America partners with EPA's Energy star on "The Lorax Pledge Drive" to help families save energy, money and make a difference to the environment.  Top pledge drivers will get an Energy Star Samsung LED TV, a library of Universal movie titles and a trip to Universal Studios Hollywood.    
On Saturday August 4th from 9a.m. to 12p.m. all Home Depot stores in the US will have Lorax activity sheets, create-your-own moustache kits and sticker sheets at their  Kids Workshop.  
Children age 5 to 12 years will be able to "Build a cork bulletin board", learn about tool safety, get a workshop apron, commemorative pin and certificate of achievement.  Each store will have a life sized Lorax poster on the wall so you can take pictures of your children with Lorax.

Shur-line painting products

Spring is on its way. If you are like me, you are already planning renovating projects :) I think Spring and Summer is the best time to paint. Although it is cheaper to do the painting ourselves it is a tiresome job.

Shur-line has made our jobs easier with their Easy Release Roller Frames. It is designed with a lever system that releases the roller cover for cleaning and disposal by squeezing the lever once. This means there is no need to pull and will save time and energy avoiding the messy work of cleaning our hands and clothes.
The roller works with any standard roller cover and doesn't slip off. It is comfortable and prevents hands from getting tired. It has a threaded end to use with extension poles.

The Easy Reach Extendable Pole by Shur-line makes the hard to reach awkward inconvenient places such as ceilings easy to paint. The rod has a system which locks it in place to the height you want from 30" to 60". It is easy to adjust the height even when you are painting because all you need to do is pull the handle of the pole in one direction to adjust the height.
It has a universal threaded tip that allows multiple accessories to attach. The handle has a soft foam for comfort and a built-in notch to hang for storage.

Shur-line has made another tiresome, time consuming and frustrating job of painting the trims easier with their Edge like a pro product. We will no longer need to put painter's tape; which is good for the environment, saves money and time.

There is a retractable guide that lifts the wheels out of the way when painting, allowing the user to put the proper amount of paint on the pad. It has a button to easily remove the pads to clean it or discard. The premium pads are reusable and replaceable. The handle can be hand held or threaded to attach on the poles. It is faster, accurate and easier to paint baseboards, crown holding, doors, windows and ceilings.

Next time you paint, use Shurline and make your job easy. It is available in hardware and painting stores.

If you want to win $50 worth of Shur-line products leave a comment on this post before March 15th.
