6 #thriftscorethursday Vintage Scale

It’s Thursday which means your weekly dose of #thriftscorethursday is on the docket. Today I’m hitting you with a vintage find, so hold on tight folks!

First of all, I simply must let you in on a little secret: you guys make Thursdays my most favorite day of the week!! Seeing all the thrifty inspiration… seriously, I’m crazy impressed.

Once upon a time there were these three lovely ladies who pride themselves on spotting the best thrifty pieces. They decided to join forces and ask their friends to join in the madness. That, my friends is how #thriftscorethursday was born folks!

15 February Silhouette Portrait Giveaway!

By now, I’m sure you’re familiar with my slight obsession with my over-used Silhouette cutting machine. I mean I even made my dual sided, shaped business cards with it!! Which is exactly why I jumped at the chance to organize this giveaway with thirteen ah-mazing bloggers. So let me tip my hat to you for being so incredible… by giving away the Cameo’s ‘lil bro, the Silhouette Portrait

For those of you wondering, the major difference between the two machines is the size. Instead of being able to cut up to 12 inches wide, like the cameo, you can cut up to 8.5 inches wide (or a standard size of paper).

4 Entryway Reconfiguration, Part 2: Creative Storage Using Repurposed Materials

Ok folks, it’s time to get back on track with DIY’ing our way through our home remodel TWO SUMMERS ago. Yeah I’m REALLY behind. The last time I talked about the house excursion, we began reviving our stuck-in-the-70’s entryway, by removing a pesky undersized doorway. And let me tell ya, that storage nook was more than a hot mess when we tackled the next piece:

Check out more before’s here.

Don’t even get me started on the stale smell, cigarette residue, and general musty smells oozing from this little nook.

Let me begin by saying the method we used for this update is meant for “Temporary Construction.” As in, we’ve only intended to get a few years out of this storage area as we’ll be reconfiguring the entire area in our 7 year Plan. We used a lot of creative materials using scrap/left over materials for the majority of this revival. Since we knew everything would get a nice coat of fresh paint, we didn’t worry about matching up the scrap wood and trim.

Moving on, when we originally planned the entryway one of our top priorities was storage, you know so our treasures wouldn’t reside in a leaky basement. The plan was to re-route the existing storage nook…

to make room for our newly inherited freezer from the beaus parents, as indicated by the gold arrow. As you can see, from the teal arrow, when we squeezed the free freezer (from the in-laws) in that little nook, it would have cut off all access to that storage area if we left the opening where it was. The beau also figured that once the wall was up, we could take advantage of the space above the freezer and add more much-needed storage in the form of a cupboard.

27 Easy Three Ingredient Homemade Laundry Detergent

By now I’m sure you’ve seen your fair share of Homemade Laundry Detergents. Maybe you’re hesitant to take the plunge because it seems like too much work grating or boiling. Which you may find yourself asking: why is this recipe any different?!

So glad you asked my friend! I’m here to tell you that you don’t need to grate bar soap. You got that right, step away from the grater and save your knuckles for cheesy hash browns, mmk? Oh and there’s no risk of burning yourself by boiling a bunch of weird ingredients here folks.

If that weren’t enough to convince you, I’m here to tell you that you only need three easy to find ingredients. That and this recipe is EASY. In fact, I bet it will take you longer to read through my rambling than to mix your own batch of laundry soap.
