    How to spray paint a bentwood rocker. I'm *hoping* to buy a vintage bentwood rocker this week after coming upon it at a thrift store this weekend. My ultimate goal is to paint it (too bad paint costs SO much in Germany).

Year round indoor tulips! Yes please!

Mason jar air freshener - fill a small mason jar about 1/4 full with baking soda, and add 6-8 drops of your favorite essential oil. Punch holes in the lid, and place in any spot that could use some freshening. Every once in a while, give the jar a gentle shake to boost it's air freshening power. Could even paint the jar lid!

Cover a light bulb with a doily and spray paint it. The light will shine the pattern onto the walls.

Soak orange peels in vinegar for two weeks in a sealed mason jar then pour the vinegar into a spray bottle. Use as a non-toxic and yummy smelling "green" cleaner. I love using vinegar to clean with but have always wondered how to make it smell better - can't wait to do this!

.. Window squeegee removes pet hair from carpets. Would probably do human hair too. This is disgustingly great to know.

Mark a horizontal midline on the wall, and hang all pictures above or below it... Whoa - this is sort of brilliant.

Great idea.

Indoor Tulips . . . Step 1 - Fill a glass container about 1/3 of the way with glass marbles or decorative rocks. Clear glass will enable you to watch the roots develop . . . Step 2 - Set the tulip bulb on top of the marbles or stones; pointed end UP. Add a few more marbles or rocks so that the tulip bulb is surrounded but not covered (think support). . .Step 3 - Pour fresh water into the container. The water shouldn't touch the bulb, but it should be very close, so that the roots will grow in
