Mother's Day is just around the corner (it's this Sunday - don't forget!). If you're anything like me, the holiday has crept up on you. There are so many different things to celebrate about our mamas (and grandmothers, spouses, and mother-figures), but what it ultimately comes down to is telling her you're thankful for her. Whether that means making her breakfast, bringing her flowers, or sending her a note in the mail, these (free!) Mother's Day printables can help you get the job done.
A new concrete garage slab is a thing of beauty. But due to the porous nature of concrete, it doesn't take long before tough stains (like oil spills) make their way into any garage floor. While you might not mind a few stains, over time, an unprotected cement floor system becomes more vulnerable to damage. An epoxy garage floor coating is a great way to ensure your garage floor's durability, and make the space feel cleaner and more inviting.
We went through the process of painting a garage floor with DRYLOK® E1 1-Part Epoxy Floor Paint, so we could learn, firsthand, how it works, and what to expect. Here's everything you need to know.
Organization is not my strong suit. Of course, I enjoy being organized, but somehow I never quite get there. So, I thought a new calendar might help to keep my schedule in order. I wanted to make one that I could reuse each month to keep track of my projects and appointments, so I decided to make a perpetual chalkboard version. And then? I stumbled upon the miracle of clear chalkboard paint... and the rest is, well, my own DIY perpetual...

Hello to my fellow renters! Here's the situation: I've been fighting with my kitchen ever since I moved into my apartment. It's completely functional, but it's not ideal for the following reasons: it's way too small, the cabinets do nothing to help visually, and the walls have been stained from cooking accidents of years past. I wanted to class the joint up a bit, and decided to install a fake backsplash by way of removable vinyl wallpaper.
We're nearing the finish line of our office makeover (more on that later) and so I've turned my attention to some of the finer details... details like, you know, mouse pads. After a desperate search to find some that blended form and function in a way that made my aesthetic-loving soul happy -- and failing -- I decided to make my own. And I'm glad I did because, holy cow, I love them!
Everyone has their own unique taste when it comes to decorating, furnishing, and accessorizing their own home. But how do you bring those preferences together into a cohesive décor style?
Whether you love bright colors or shades of white, natural materials, or tons of pattern, understanding your interior design style means making better interior choices. (And fewer, potentially costly interior...
Does the need to sit around a fire outside go back to our days as cave-dwellers? Probably, but we have way better stuff to roast over the fire now, and beer to drink with it. Just like our pre-historic ancestors (except with access to hardware stores, and power tools, and computers), you can make your own DIY backyard fire ring with these tutorials on how to build a DIY fire pit.

Currently I'm living in a place with a kitchen that must hold some sort of record for tininess. There are four drawers, a couple of cabinets, and exactly one countertop. Said countertop is about 2.5 square feet, and that's literally my entire cooking workspace. Suffice it to say, I need to be wise about kitchen organization if I want to keep from going crazy. Knowing there's absolutely no room to store things horizontally, I recently went vertical with this magnetic paper towel holder.
