DIY Furniture from stock cabinets, I've used this idea to create a mini mud room, a built in banquette, and a GINORMOUS entertainment center. This is so easy, much cheaper than buying the prefab junk they sell in the store (better quality too) and the end result is always awesome!!! You can paint or stain the finished product and add just about any embellishment your heart desires. LOVE this!
Wash outdoor windows with Woolite. I have been doing this for years and found a blog with photos. I use 1/2 cup to 1 gallon warm water, but other than that I do the same as this blogger using a soft car washing brush on an extension handle. Makes outdoor window cleaning easy.
Backsplash - run it down to counter, don't put in 4" counter extension slab. I've always wanted cabinets with glass fronts at the top, to display my pretty stuff, but keep them from getting all dusty or broken. I'd also add little lights in there. PS: This is the most repinned pin I've ever had by far.
