Showing Some Love to Our Adirondack Chair

Adirondack Chair

We live close to the Adirondacks and spend many summer weekends there, so we decided it would be nice to have our own Adirondack chair.  Last year Mr. Spring started sawing pieces of wood and made one for our backyard.  It is amazing that these chairs are actually comfortable.  Once the chair was made, we […]

How to Refresh Your Towels

Use Vinegar to renew towels

My towels have not been as soft and plush as they once were, and I wasn’t quite ready to buy new ones.  I learned a little tip I thought I would share.  Beware!  It does include vinegar (which I am not a fan of), but I know the results are amazing.

Painting a Fabric Bench

Painted fabric on bench

When I was new to this world of blogging, I had also just moved into our townhouse.  We worked with the furniture that we had, but I wanted to update the dining room table that had become part of the great room.  (I am now on the look-out for an old and worn dining table).  […]
