Seriously clever! A headlamp around a gallon of water = ambient light for your tent and a great night lamp when the power is out.

BED SYSTEM 2: Reading lamp that is easy on the eyes... 20061004_6551

I have used candles, headlamps, and at least one portable camping light to provide lighting for reading and writing at night in camp. A drawback of all those tools is the glare of the lamp. By contrast, this simple system is easy on the eyes. It is a gallon milk jug filled with water with a headlamp pointing into the water. One gallon is 3.78 liters. This picture was taken inside my Subaru station wagon while I was lying in bed, working on my trip journal. The system works well on a picnic…

A fun painting technique that creates a vintage look. Beyond The Picket Fence

Playing by the Numbers?

Inspired by Donna at Funky Junk Interiors, I made a big number 5. It is a little oddly shaped, but I think that gives it a vintage quality. The fun part was playing around with paint techniques. I wasn't sure what finished look I was going for so I decided to try a few different things. I melted some wax and added a few blobs of that. I slapped on some red. I sprinkled some salt on it and spray painted brown/rust primer on it. I added some orange and turquoise, sprayed some Murphy's wood…

Great idea for a large back yard: Use your solar lights. They aren't just for the ground! Take a 2x4 and cut them into squares to fit the existing fence posts. Using galvanized screws - not nails - to screw a "L" bracket to the underneath base. Then on top, screw on the stake.

Wish I knew this sooner...... The newspaper will prevent any grass and weed seeds from germinating, but unlike fabric, it will decompose after about 18 months. By that time, any grass and weed seeds that were present in the soil on planting will be dead. It’s green, it’s cheaper than fabric, and when you decide to remove or redesign the bed later on, you will not have the headache you would with fabric.

Hi everyone! I'm back as promised with a tutorial on how to make the adorable nursery art we did for Sarah & Shaun's nursery. This is a really easy project, with a great impact, we were pretty proud of ourselves. (Oh ya - by the way - they had their baby! Georgia Rae was born on September 25th, 2017..
