Another pinner said: I wish I had seen this years ago!! Tape before caulking. Smooth out with finger. Then peel off the tape immediately, before it dries.
Some of my favorites: 17. Fill a basket in the fridge with simple, healthy, kid-friendly snacks. Let the kids pick their own snack from the basket at snack time. 21. Label toy baskets and clothing drawers with pictures instead of words for pre-readers. 22. Confiscate any toys that they fight over. Consider donating them to your church nursery or a local pregnancy crisis center. idea, stuff, simplifying life, organ, simplify life with kids, simplifi life, parent, babi, kiddo

Pinner says "Ok, I just tried this and it seriously did work. I did it twice on a burner that's had scorch marks for a year or more and they're gone! For anyone as OCD about cleaning as I am, this is a must! I would be prepared to do it at least twice, more if you've got bad burns. This really works!!!"

Boys bathroom?? Lay a world map over 3 canvas, cut into 3 pieces. Coat each canvas with Mod Podge and wrap the maps around them like presents. Let dry and hang on the wall about 2" away from each other. I also like the idea of adding pins to all the places you've been. mod podg, craft, idea, add pin, world maps, places, diy, coats, canvases

Vinegar works as a wood stain when you add a metal object in the mix and let it sit in a glass container for a week. A handful of pennies will produce a beautiful pale Caribbean blue stain. A wad of steel wool will give you a rich reddish hue. A combination of tea and a metal object in vinegar will produce a black stain. Log this away for later. metal object, steel wool, vintage furniture, blue stain, natural wood, vinegar work, beauti pale, black stain, wood stain

LOVE this kid's bedroom - so much but not too much, especially for a little person - I love a happy overfilled room rather than something too modern and minimalistic for a kid. diy kids bedroom ideas, kid bedrooms, bedroom ideas for kids girls, kid rooms, girl bedrooms, big girl rooms, kids room ideas for girls diy, modern girl room, kids bedrooms girls
