Cheap Summer Fun: DIY 100ft Slip-n-Slide

April 20, 2017

Are you looking for some cheap fun?
I priced other 50ft and 75ft slip n slides on Amazon and the cost was ridiculous considering what you actually got. A lot of the reviews said things like "just a thick roll of plastic". So it got me thinking. You can buy 100 ft. sheet plastic at Lowes and Home Depot for a lot less. And I'll be posting the DIY foam machine next week if you're interested in that. See the combined fun in the video below.

DIY Farmhouse Headboards for only $25

April 12, 2017

A few months ago I wanted to revamp Eloise and Henri's room. They had these broken toddler beds that were different colors that I intended to paint to match and then never did. Plus they were getting bigger so I decided to rearrange their room and give them some new twin sized beds.
I priced headboards and bed frames at all the cheapest places I could think of Walmart.com, Overstock.com, CRAIGSLIST! But came up with nothing I liked in my price range. So I decided to just try and make them myself. I found this very simple Ana White Brookstone twin headboard plan and got to work. Each bed took only two hours to assemble once all the wood was pre-cut at Lowe's.

Clear Glitter Slime (3 Easy Ingredients, NO Borax)

November 20, 2016

It is a stay-in kind of day so Lily and I made some CLEAR homemade slime with household supplies that we had on hand. Only clear Elmer's glue (PVA glue works too), saline solution and baking soda. NO BORAX!

The secret is using saline solution. It contains boric acid. And since both Brian and I wear contacts we had more than enough. Also laundry detergent works. If you don't have clear Elmer's glue you can get a bottle at Walmart for less than a $1. Or you can use regular Elmer's glue and add food coloring for non-clear slime.

Make this statement piece for your dining room from just a few pieces of scrap wood!

November 18, 2016

I've been trying to redo my dining room without spending much money. So I've been taking items that I already have and repurposing them. I can now add this "Gather" sign above our hutch to my list of cheaply made statement pieces.
It was constructed out of scrap wood, 2 1'x8' furring strips, stain that I already had on hand and white paint that I already had on hand. I created a template for the words and symbols that you can download here GATHERARROW. Tutorial for sign below.

No one wants to be sitting outside on a crisp fall night with a mixed drink on ICE? Instead plug in that slow cooker, put up your feet or get some chores done around the house while making your guests this yummy hot toddy recipe without the fuss of a kettle or saucepan. So I also found the perfect sweetener for this recipe. Torani's Bourbon Caramel syrup! Perfect, right? And less messy than honey.

If you're looking for a good mixed drink for after your Thanksgiving dinner this is it! Just set it and forget it!
