A window covered with colorful fabric.

Super Fast Fix for Nosy Neighbors
Thanks. I wanted something they couldnt see through, plus the dowel was super cheap. It was just 1.39 at Ace and easy to cut, too. I also needed it to stand out from the door, as there wasnt enough room for a tension rod.

Its a rental and they wont let us. I do like contact paper, as long as it lets in light during the day. My fav is frosted contact paper, but even if they let us, I can never get that last bubble out!

Making an Emergency Bug Out Box

Making an Emergency Bug Out Box
No, but I can see how that might be misunderstood. What I meant was the very strong wrapping these bundles come in. Slit the plastic so you dont have to tear it when you need it. Its very strong. In fact, if you have milk crates and want to cut the plastic...

 

A desk shelf made from recycled cans.

You are right. I got my hacksaw at my local thrift stores man cave for 3.00, as the dollar tree ones will break almost at once. But yes, I even go to my local hardware store and they will even cut PVC pipes for me. Customer service isnt dead, although it seems...

The baked pan of French Onion Chicken.

I think it makes it French because you use a beef broth. Might be a google search for another day. The microwave safe container is for the butter. I dont know if you could use the package to replace everything else. I did google it but was routed to recipes...

Sprucing Up a TV Stand
We are great minds and they do think alike! Thanks for the compliments. Yes, when something looks ratty and is right in your face every time you watch tv or even sit in front of it, it was a 30 minute fix. I agree, why not. It cost me nothing but time and that...

A tissue holder upside down to hold flowers.

Reusing a Tissue Holder
Thanks. I can always find another use for most things. If I cant, I give them to someone who can use them. But if you saw the inside of this, it was no wonder a box didnt fit. The work was almost as pretty on the inside, but the thickness was almost twice as...
