Today, I have some outdoor cleaning tips for you while I share how I cleaned my dirty carport. I have used the AutoRight car Wash Stick to wash my car, and clean the side of my house.  Recently while I was waiting for some spackling to dry on a project I was walking by the carport and just happened to notice how dirty it had become.  I went right to the … [Read more...]

Thrift stores and yard sales always have lots of wooden things, like shelves and spice racks that have outdated looks, that can be easily and inexpensively updated.  I picked up an old lazy Susan for just a few bucks that was dinged up and really just needed a fresh coat of paint, but I wanted to give it some … [Read more...]
