Yard Maintenance with the Dewalt Brushless Blower

We have been wanting to reduce our work in the yard, and enjoy spending more time just relaxing in the garden. One of our manual tasks in the garden is raking - we can do this job much easily using a leaf blower.

Glass Paint Container

I chose is hexagon shaped glass for this project, so it took me a few days to complete it. I had to wait for each side to dry, to avoid the paint from running off. I like how the design and the colours turned out.

Completed Bathroom Renovation #BathroomReno

We have been busy taking on a DIY bathroom project, which has been long, but fun and satisfying. We wanted our bathroom to be functional and fit for everyone in the family, so when we designed it we had an universal design in mind. This allowed us to make the space functional and safe without compromising style and character.

Building our own rolling DIY Door and Organizing with Rev-a-shelf

building a rolling barn door DIY
We love the concept of barn doors, rolling door, and pocket doors because they are neat and trendy! We were so excited that we were able to include a sliding door in our #BathroomReno project. We had a closet outside the washroom, where we keep our linen. To access this closet we needed to come out of the washroom, which was not convenient. When we were planning our renovation, we decided to bring the closet inside the bathroom, which would allow us to have more space and use it functionally.

delta dryden collection
For our recent bathroom renovation project, we used Delta products because of our positive past experience with their bathroom and kitchen products. I like the spectrum of finishes and styles Delta has. I think the choice of what finish and style we choose to add, changes the feel of our space.

In our #BathroomReno we decided to build our own custom vanity to fit our need and space. Instead of spending money for a ready-made vanity that restricts what we want in our vanity, our decision to build one allowed us to add a variety of features we wanted.

OXO Essentials In Our Bathroom

OXO bathroom sink grip
Couple of years ago we added a shower stall for a bathroom in our home, and we find having a shower stall is more useful for our family. We built a barrier that gives us the option of being able to fill the shower stall with water. I found this OXO 5" silicone tub stopper allows us to effectively seal the drain to fill the shower stall with water if we want. The suction cup secures the stopper to the floor when we use it. I like that when we are not using the stopper, we can use the suction cup to store it upright.

Made from Earth Body and Hair Care Products

made from earth shampoo
I have used Made from Earth products before and like it because the products are made using natural ingredients. Their skin and hair care products are organic, holistic, and healthy. I like that I can use the products without fearing the unknown chemical and animal product. I find the products are gentler in the skin, and does not clog pores, it is less irritant, unscented, not heavy or greasy.

Decoupage Vase and Using Stencils on Fabric

stencil book
I enjoy looking through, and being inspired by a couple of Amy Butler's books. The Stencils book has beautiful fresh, decorative patterns that we can use for many of our decor projects. The 14 die-cut stencil designs in this kit comes with an inspiring book that has colourful projects.

Organizing with Kilner

The original Kilner jar invented by John Kilner and Co in the 1840's has stood the test of time for over 150 years. Although, the design has been updated, they have kept the unique vacuum feature that helps keep our blends, preserves, and pickles fresh. I find the Kilner jars can be used in lots of different ways, not just to store preserves and pickles. I used a variety of different sized Kilner Jars to organize my kitchen pantry.
