Solution to Hiding Big Ugly Pipes Outdoors

Home Remodel Time The other day I told you about this: Here's what Kyle did: He took some good ol' 2x6's and covered that ugly pipe. That simple. Some of the angled cuts were difficult because of the slope of the driveway and different fence parts popping out here and there, but it turned out quite nicely: This ... see more >>

Pay It Forward

Vicki at The Domesticated Me is doing this cool new thing called Pay It Forward. Here's how it works. Vicki said that she is going to give something special to 3 people who commented first on the Pay It Forward post. So I commented on her blog and told her I'd continue it on.

Cook Up A Lunchtime Storm on Your Barbecue

This is a guest post by Edel. When we think of having a barbecue, gathering friends and family round for an evening get-together often springs to mind. But I think we should make the most of our BBQs (especially with the hard-to-read British weather) by cooking on it whenever we can, and that includes lunchtime. I like the thought ... see more >>

Unique and Beautiful Bathroom Lighting

When we redid our master bathroom, lighting was definitely part of the process. Here's what we had before: And here's what we ended up with: The lighting shape was similar, and we stuck with the three lamps, but the after is a much more updated fixture overall. Murray Feiss bathroom lighting has a ton of really unique ... see more >>
