Metal Protector The same carnauba paste wax that maintains a car’s finish does a dynamite job on painted metal furniture. Once a season, apply an even coat with a damp terry cloth towel to furnishings; let dry, then lightly buff with a soft cotton rag. The wax will repel water, preventing rust, and also restore luster to dull paint
Flower Basket Chandelier DIY - turn 2 wire frame flower baskets, pipe cleaners, and white lights into a cool glowing chandelier that can be used year-'round. Don't know if it will happen this year, but last year, Dollar Tree had the baskets. (hint, hint)
