Easy DIY Carpet Cleaning Solution: I have been needing to clean all of the carpets upstairs for a while. It’s one of those things that isn’t that big of a deal when you actually start doing it. I have been dreading it because I don’t like the cleaner that the user’s manual suggests for my machine.
It just doesn’t work and isn’t worth the money. Of course, the book has to make you feel like if you put anything else in your carpet cleaning machine other than what they suggest, it will blow up on contact.
I decided that I was going to take a leap of faith and find something different, something cheaper and dang it, I want a cleaner that smells better! That’s why I chose this easy DIY carpet cleaning solution.
Whitewashing has become more popular with the farmhouse and vintage decor that is in style right now. It’s very popular on all of the home shows too. So why not make your own decor and give it a touch of whitewash?
I will be showing you how to whitewash the farmhouse lantern that I made. You can use this process on wood crafts, furniture, wood signs, etc.

Don’t pay on upwards of $30 on the decorative lanterns that are so hot right now when you can pay less than $5 to make one of these Dollar Tree DIY Lanterns. These beautiful lanterns are easy to make. And to beat it all, they’re made from real woodblocks. No saw needed!
Have you seen all the rage that’s going around with the reverse canvas? I’m going to show you how to make a reverse canvas farmhouse sign using an upcycled canvas print. This is sort of a play on the farmhouse wood signs that have been around for many years. I make both the wood signs and canvas signs. The canvas signs are way easier to make.

DIY Bathroom Remodel On A Budget Before And After- My family and I moved into our 2-story farmhouse back in 2010. This house was where my husband, Jim, grew up.
Jim and I have been renovating the rooms one by one ever since. I could not wait to do a DIY bathroom remodel on the downstairs bathroom.
As you can see in the picture, it had not been updated probably since the 1950s. There was green and yellow tile everywhere. I had never seen a yellow toilet until I saw that one.
There was also a pink toilet in the upstairs bathroom. Nor had I never seen a pink toilet either.
Welcome to my Valentine’s Day Deco Mesh Wreath Tutorial. All materials used in this tutorial are from Dollar Tree. I wanted this wreath to look a little different. So I chose to do it in pink and red.

I made this crochet car American tote bag for my son to put his things in while he’s in the car. I have found myself on many occasions having to preach to him to clean the backseat of the car. There has been loose tissues and small toys in the seat and in the floorboards. I knew I wanted to make something to help keep the car clean, but I wasn’t sure what. I searched many patterns and finally found one I loved by Heidi Yates. Her Ravelry shop is called Snappy Tots. I love her patterns. I have bought a few of her patterns in the past. She is very generous and offers several of her patterns for free. She offers the American Car Tote Bag for free in her Ravelry Store.
