brown bobbin: DIY: old tie into 2 new bows

Upcycling vintage old ties, add onto existing repurposed denim blue jean skirt cut short; upcycle, recycle, salvage, diy, repurpose! For ideas and goods shop at Estate ReSale & ReDesign, Bonita Springs, FL

Great way to upcycle a tie. (reduce, reuse, recycle, ideas, inspiration, repurpose, upcycle)

Tutorial for fabric flower from T-shirt - this seems easier than rolling one (but there is all that cutting) & can use up scraps that aren't long enough for 'necklace' strips

Clean oven with vinegar, baking soda and lemon...tried 2/23/13 worked well had to do some areas twice to get the stuck on stuff and got most of it the second time...back wall of stove was a challenge (gravity and all)

diy: bath toy holder. We broke one and the new one won't stay up. Enough! Making this one.

Large wipes tub cover. Gonna do this for (inevitable) toddler wipes we'll be keeping in the bathroom.

    Didn't even think of that! What a great idea.

spray painted bottle caps, paint a tray white, arrange dry caps on dried tray, next used "acrylic water" to pour over the caps. 2 part epoxy is sold at HL & Michael's, but it is cheapest at Walmart, in Floral Dept. Follow the directions, mix the compounds and pour it on. It's self-leveling, which is great! The tough part is waiting 48 hours, because it cannot be disturbed at all! The acrylic hardens without incident & is ready for use!

1 tbsp cornstarch, 4-6 pumps baby shampoo, 2-3 drops food coloring, 1-2 tsp water = voila! bathtub paint.

So, that FREE "boys" bike I got for E that I was just going to put streamers and a basket on and call it a "girls" bike? Looks like I can do a little better than that... you know, in my spare time ;-)

How to Paint a Bike- {DIY Kinda Girl}

Great way to transform some Goodwill lamps: Krylon’s Looking Glass spray paint, which dries into a mirror-like finish. First, spray the body of your plain glass with clean water. While the surface is wet, spray it thoroughly with Looking Glass spray paint. The water will prevent the paint from completely adhering to the surface – exactly what’s required to achieve the characteristically blotchy look of genuine mercury glass. Let the paint dry overnight, and repeat the process to the darkness of your liking.
