How to decorate your garden shed and make it cosy

Once upon a time, a garden shed was the man’s domain. It was buried deep in the corner of the garden, hidden if possible and was used as an oversized storage hut for the manly things like power tools and axes. It was a respite facility for the outdoor creatures with more fragile sensibilities – spiders afraid of the rain and earwigs who don’t like the cold, for example. On crossing the threshold, your head would become crowned with cobwebs, your nose assaulted by the musty smell. Your skin would crawl at the thought of the insect-squatters who had taken up residence in your shed.

Fortunately, this shed has been consigned to the backyards of garden purists, and the humble shed has blossomed like the flowers you planted. Now, a garden shed is so much more than a haven for mould. Now, they can be a haven for you. Now, they can be anything you want them to be.

garden shed

A second lounge, an office, an indoor-outdoor space – the choices are endless. And with the affordable accessories, you can buy to turn into your own personal domain, and it’s time to get cracking in time for summer.

But how do you make your shed cosy? Can you maintain its functionality and still have it as an attractive area to enjoy? We’ve listed a few ideas below to get you started…

Storage space

Let’s not forget plastic sheds are often required to house your tools. So if you want to use it for other things, you could get some stylish storage units to keep your dirty equipment out of sight, neat and tidy. This will help ensure it doesn’t become dirty and messy but can still have the primary function you need it for.

Comfortable seating

You won’t have a cosy space if the seating is faded, stained and cracked picnic chairs that look like they belong to Stig of the Dump. Or worse, an upturned bucket. No, cosy means welcoming and in order for that to be the case, there needs to be somewhere comfy to park your behind. There are chairs you can hang from the ceiling. Affordable corner sofas. Love seats in weird and wonderful shapes and patterns. Rocking chairs, arms chairs or even bar stools if you fancy having a little party area with a mixology station and a keg.

Soft furnishings

Nothing breeds sterility like the absence of accessories. Even at the height of summer, the evenings will likely get chilly from time to time so have a few throws around the place to snuggle under. Add some curtains or a stylish blind to your window. Have some bunting hanging at the top of the walls and scatter a few cushions around.

Heat and light

As just mentioned, England isn’t the warmest so invest in a safe heater to make the place feel homely and welcoming. Dark and dingy has no place in a cosy shed either so ensure you get some light on the situation! Big windows, artificial light, candles (be careful in a wooden structure!) all add to the cosiness.

Today’s shed is so much more than a tool store. You can enjoy yours as part of your outdoor lifestyle, and it can be just as inviting as any living space at home. Spend a bit of time looking for ways to make it part of your home, and you’ll get the most out of your shed.

Repair Tips for Boiler Breakdown

It’s pretty much the law of the land that boilers break down during a cold snap. In reality, this happens because boilers are either turned back on after a summer of relative inactivity or turned up as the mercury goes down. This puts stress on the system and before you know it, your Old Faithful has gone kaput and you’re shivering.

boilers

Don’t try to repair your boiler yourself

If you’ve tried all the troubleshooting and diagnostics in the manual and you’ve had no luck, then it’s time to call in the emergency boiler repair people. You must never attempt repairs yourself because this is dangerous and you may invalidate any warranties on your boiler. Thankfully, there are lots of same-day boiler repair services so the chances are that you won’t be cold for long.

Staying warm without your boiler

If you can’t get a boiler repair technician out immediately, or if it’s particularly cold and you have to wait for a few hours, there are lots of things you can do to stay warm.

Prioritise the areas you’ll be occupying

By concentrating your heating efforts to the rooms you’ll be using most, you won’t have as much space to keep warm, making life easier. This is especially important if you’re using fan heaters or free-standing electric radiators, as these can become expensive to run.

Light a fire

If you have a wood-burner or working fireplace you’ll really appreciate it, so light it up.

Go retro with extra layers and a hot water bottle

We forget how much difference an extra blanket on the bed can make, as well as a hot water bottle. If you have plush covers for your hotties, you can carry them around the house for extra comfort.

Donning an extra jumper and a pair of fleecy socks works well too.

Exclude those draughts

If you have secure double glazing then just make sure your curtains are closed once the temperatures drop at night.

If you have any draughty windows or doors, then a makeshift draught excluder from masking tape or similar, as well as rolling up towels and placing them at the bottom of closed doors.

Heating your water

A major annoyance when your boiler breaks down is being unable to heat water. If you have an immersion heater then you’ll be able to get hot water for baths, showers and washing up, but remember this is an expensive option. An electric shower is a bonus in these circumstances too, as you can use it to fill the bath or washing up bowl.

You can also use a kettle or a pan to heat up water, but if you’re using these methods to fill a bath or a washing up bowl, take care to put cold water in first to avoid scalds.

Reasons to use box frames for your artwork

Cricut rolled roses and vinyl frame

Box frames have become a popular option for many people to protect their artwork. There is no space in-between the artwork and its frame, helping the artwork placed nicely within it. As a result, this gives a modern-day appearance for your artwork and prevents the artwork from contacting the glass. But selecting the right frame can sometimes be difficult 

What are the box frames?

Box frames, also known as shadow picture frames, are a type of picture frame that you can use to present pictures and photographs and artwork. But they are much deeper than the normal picture frames.  

You can use box frames to create depth when you hang them close to other picture frames. This means you can use them next to the collection of framed pictures to create contrast. Some people also use them to improve the interior design. The best thing is that they are easy to use. You can choose to utilize box frames either as freestanding or hang them on the wall. 

How to use box frames?

Box frames are suitable for a wide range of uses. They provide an appealing 3D look and you can frame artwork to create depth to flat artwork that would have been impossible to get if you had used other types of frames. 

box frames

Many people opt to use box frames to make shadow art, lightboxes, and handmade gifts. For example, you can choose to have a box frame so that you can use it as a gift to a friend or family member. 

Best of all, you can use box frames to hang souvenirs, such as oil on canvas, tiles, books, and textiles. Unfortunately, some box frames might not meet your expectations because of their lower quality. Therefore, go for box frames that are handmade, unique, and customized to match the size of the item you want to frame.

The benefits of a good box frame

A box frame is an important part of the overall presentation of any artwork. Most people are concerned about damages to their precious valuables. They are justified to do so because unsupervised handling and many other environmental factors can cause problems. This is why you should box frame your collectables for the following reasons:

  • Protection. Box frames prevent your artwork from damaging elements, such as wear and tear. For example, signatures on the autographed memorabilia can fade because of regular handling and exposure. Hence, you require a box frame with a layer of glass to protect it from damage.  
  • Aesthetic appeal. If you are interested in improving the decor of any space, perhaps box frames are the best option. Box frames have different designs, sizes, materials, and shapes to match any indoor environment. For instance, you can use hand-finished wood box frames to create s sophisticated indoor environment. 
  • Hanging flexibility. You can hang box frames in various ways to prevent damage to your collectibles. Thankfully, you can use metal, plastic, or wood materials to hang your box frames, giving you a choice to match the rest of the interior decoration.

Is it a good idea to invest in real estate and buy a house in 2020?

Laptop with the words, Real Estate on the screen

This is the year for the presidential election in the United States. What makes it even more interesting is whether Trump will be re-elected into office or not. The intensity of this year’s election will generate instability in the real estate market. So the best time to buy a house would be during the first half of the year before the political campaigns.

The markets look different every year; several factors determine whether you will get an excellent deal for the homes in real estate or not. If you are keen on the market factors that influence the real estate industry and invest at the right time, then you might save millions of dollars.

The big question is, will the year 2020 be the year to make that real estate investment that will save you millions? 

“One of the questions I get asked is if 2020 will be a great year to invest in real estate?” The CEO of a real estate listing based in New York said in an interview. So many consumers are speculating on how the real estate industry will be in 2020.

Buyers will dictate the market.

Unlike other years where sellers have the upper hand while negotiating for the houses, this year will be different. The supply for homes has gone up; many people are looking to sell their properties, while at the same time, the demand has gone down. So it means that buyers will have the upper hand while negotiating for houses. Real estate companies such as UpNest will see a rise because sellers and buyers will be looking for a platform where they can get connected and get great deals. The amount the buyer is paying upfront will be lower compared to other years, and the mortgage will offer homes buyers a better deal. So 2020 will be a great year to invest in real estate. 

The Coronavirus Crisis.

At first, everybody thought that the impact of coronavirus would be felt in the short run. It seems that the virus is only spreading by the day, and real estate is not the only industry that has been affected. The coronavirus scare has hit every sector around the world. 

Mortgage rates have hit the lowest due to the coronavirus crisis, banks and lenders have reduced the interest rates to encourage home buyers to invest. This is the kind of situation that every buyer should take advantage of, even though nobody knows when the coronavirus scare will end. If the mortgages are charging low-interest rates, it means that every home buyer can make one hell of a deal in 2020, a deal where they will pay a lower interest rate and maybe pay a lower upfront fee while buying the house.

China is the country that has been affected the most by the coronavirus, but the same effect has rippled into the United States Real Estate Company. Some of the biggest home buyers in the United States are actually from China, so it means that the demand for homes has declined, and this has led to the decline in interest rates to encourage home buyers to make their offers.

Declutter your surroundings and welcome Spring

As we slowly bid adieu to the heart-wrenching winters and welcome the pleasing spring, we also have to tend to an important task of decluttering our homes, backyard and the rest of our surrounding radius. This helps us move upwards and onwards into the new season with a fresh atmosphere that mirrors your clean and brisk houses. The task of decluttering can appear to be quite cumbersome but is actually really easy to get around if you conduct the process with proper planning and determination. All you need is some established strategies and a little help like that from skip hire and such to give your surroundings a refreshing makeover.

Hiring a skip keeps the tidying process organised

skip hire

When you think of the cleaning act it usually revolves around gathering stuff you need to get rid of or compiling the items you need to donate. The task usually gets pushed into the back seat because you just keep shifting the things from one room to another, then into the garage or in a pile in your backyard. If you hire a skip it will help you to discard all the unwanted garbage at one place in the skip and save the trip to the dump yards. A few steps have been listed below that might aid in getting your spring cleaning done in an orderly manner.

Clear your calendars

As mentioned above, you will never get around cleaning everything if you just keep shoving the garbage from one room to another. You have to take ample time and clear your schedule for one or two days and focus only on getting the surrounding neat. Organizing the space and trying to make the maximum out of your living area is necessary to declutter effectively. You have to be realistic while making a plan for decluttering and give enough time to each aspect as it can get overwhelming to tackle everything at once. Prioritise the rooms and take the next task only after completion of the one in hand.

Sort each item thoroughly

The main task while you get on with your decluttering is trying to figure out what item needs to be thrown away, what needs to be donated and what needs to be put back in your cupboards and cabinets. We have witnessed several tidying strategies like the Marie Kondo method where she helps you to decide whether you should retain any object or not on the basis of whether it sparks joy for you. Once you decide that you need to get rid of certain objects they go straight into the skip and the skip hired will come back to collect it once you are done.

Refurbish and replace old items

Certain items in your kitchen like utensils and pieces of equipment that are used on a daily basis are bound to be worn and torn. The spring cleaning session is a good time to get rid of these worn pans and dishes and get a fresh set to lighten up your kitchen. Similarly, your tools in the garage and some of your bathroom wear could also use an upgrade and give your house the much-needed makeover.

Skip hires result in efficient cleaning

Making sure that you welcome spring with a refreshing outlook is manageable if you make a proper to-do list and go through with the process in an orderly fashion. Hiring skip bins can lead to an easy way to dispose of the unwanted garbage and also saves you several trips to the landfills and dumping grounds. You can also pile the toys, clothes and other such used items that you no longer use but are in a good condition and donate them to Goodwill or anyone who seems to be in dire need. This cleaning process will lead to making the transition from winters to spring pleasant and revitalizing.

Simple DIY procedure to remove stickers from glass without causing any damage

The most attractive showpiece of glass might look ugly if it has a price sticker attached to it. Not merely with the showpieces, but starting from your new cooking utensils to that of the windshields, it becomes essential to remove those unwanted labels.  

No doubt, removing these labels from the glass products might be a difficult task, but if you follow proper guidelines and hidden tactics, you will be able to remove the stickers most reliably. Rather than purchasing expensive products for removing these things, there are higher chances that it might damage or put scratches on your glass product. However, with the help of DIY, you will be able to get peace of mind that your product is quite safe and protected from those harmful chemicals

Why should you apply proper procedures when removing stickers from the glass?

sticker residue on glass

Starting from glassware to clothing to that of home décor, stickers and labels can be slapped on everywhere. Consequently, there comes a situation when you try to remove that sticker, but removing the adhesive, which is left behind, can turn out to be the most difficult task. By using the wrong solutions or sharp-edged tools for removing stickers, it can damage the glass where the sticker was stuck. Yeah! Getting rid of these labels is quite challenging as, if not done properly; it will leave residue on your new items of glass leaving them ugly, scratched, and spotted. This is why it is always recommended to apply proper procedures while removing stickers from glass so that the authenticity and elegance of the items will stay perfectly. 

Possible DIY stickers removing procedure without causing any scratches 

So, before you get fed up and give up on the ever getting rid of that sticker, label, or the adhesive left behind, you can take a deep peek at the best ways to remove stickers perfectly from the glass without even causing any scratches:

Method 1Using Hot Water and Soap

soapy sponge - soap and water
  • The first step is soaking the glass object and the sticker in the hot soapy water for about 10-30 minutes. During this time, the sticker had already softened, hence making it easier for you to remove the sticker with your fingers.
  • Soaking the glass object and sticker in hot soapy water helps in dissolving the glue and breaking its connection with the glass. If you are unable to dip glass objects in the hot water, you can try reducing the sticker area by soaking the hot wet washcloth.
  • After soaking in the hot water for a good 30 minutes, the sticker can be easily removed with the help of your fingers.  If you are unable to do so, you may use a knife. However, make sure, the knife is not sharp because it will run the risk of scratching the surface.  Consequently, clean the glass properly with the help of microfiber cloth, as they are as gentle on the glass. 

Method 2Using Washing Soda 

Baking soda, water and a toothbrus
  • For this method, you will require a bucket filled with hot water and washing soda. The combination of baking soda and hot water will act as a dissolving agent. It will break the bond of the glue from the glass surface, hence making it come out easily.
  • For safety reasons, you can put on gloves while handling washing soda because some people develop skin allergies and irritation while working with it.  You need to dip the object for a good 30 minutes or maybe even longer than that if you have stubborn stickers.
  • Washing soda is a stronger alkaline compared to baking soda. After soaking the object in the water for some time, take it out. You will be surprised to see stickers much easily sliding off the glass surface.

Method 3 Using Heat

heat gun

 Heat up the glass surface for 2 to 3 minutes with the help of a blow dryer. The other way is, placing your object in the sunlight for several hours. Moreover, if you have a sticker on your car, you can park it in a sunny place for some time and then try to peel off the sticker. It will come out much easier.

  1. The sticker can be easily peeled off with the help of your fingers. However, you must be careful, as the surface of the object will be hot. You can also use a knife (which is not sharp) to peel the sticker gently.
  1. You may also use oil, soap, or other glue removing agents if you find part of the sticker is remaining. Apply the desired removing agent and let it sit there for some time before you remove the residue off with soapy water.
  2.  You may require repeating the process several times until the whole glue residue has successfully come off. 

Which method is most recommended and why?

If you’re looking for the simplest way that won’t even require any special material, you’re suggested to remove the stickers and labels with the help of hot water and soap. Soap and hot water are one of the most effective tools for breaking down the bond of the sticker’s adhesive material. You don’t have to buy any expensive products to get rid of these labels. With the help of this method, you will be able to see your glass full of attractiveness and elegance. Don’t worry! The grace and sophistication of your glass will still be the same. 

Wrapping Up:

Don’t let the labels destroy your windows. Sticker removal procedure isn’t as simple as it looks. If you go through the previous information, you will be able to do it by yourself. You can save your hard-earned money and quality time by applying these easy steps.

Schwartz Chilli Con Carne Pasta Bake – Slimming World Recipe

Ant usually cooks all our meals from scratch but this week we’ve been busy decorating and the house has been turned upside down. Everything seems to have been dumped in the kitchen which means space and time have been limited.
We always have syn free Chilli Con Carne with rice but after trying a Chilli Con Carne pasta bake at a recent Slimming World taster, I told Ant we had to make it at home!

Schwartz Chilli Con Carne Pasta Bake Recipe

Schwartz chilli con carne recipe mix

With limited time, we decided to use a Schwartz Hot Chilli Con Carne recipe mix. It’s not syn free but the whole packet is only 5.5 syns and is shared between 4 of us so I just counted it as 2 syns per portion.
We’ve been trying to cut down the amount of red meat we eat so we substituted it with Tesco meat-free mince. Also, I’m not a fan of kidney beans so we added a tin of baked beans instead!
It was delicious topped with one of my healthy extra portions of cheddar cheese.

Ingredients for Schwartz hot chilli con carne pasta bake

Serves 4
2 syns per serving

Ingredients

  • 1 tin baked beans
  • 500g meat-free mince
  • 340g dried fusilli pasta
  • 120g grated cheddar
  • Fry Light

Method

  1. Cook pasta according to packet instructions. When cooked, leave in the water and set aside.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, spray a deep frying pan with Fry-Light and fry the peppers and onions until softened.
  3. Add the meat-free mince and fry until cooked.
  4. Sprinkle over the Schwartz Hot Chilli Con Carne recipe mix and stir.
  5. Add the tinned beans and tinned tomatoes and stir well. Bring to boil then reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 15 minutes.
  6. Heat the oven 200°C/Gas 6
  7. When the sauce is ready, drain the pasta and place in a large oven-proof bowl. Add the sauce and mix well.

I don’t think I ever want to go back to having rice with my Chilli Con Carne, I much prefer pasta!

Thanks to Schwartz and Tesco for proving the recipe mix for us to try.

Photowall Picture Canvas Review & Discount Code

When Photowall got in touch and asked if I’d like to review one of their products, I got all excited thinking about having a wall mural, but then I realised that we didn’t have any walls suitable for a mural because just about every wall in our house has either bookshelves on it or bookcases against it!

I decided that instead of a wall mural, I’d check out the canvas prints and went straight to the fantasy section – I LOVE fairies!
I was totally spoilt for choice but as soon as I saw the Treasure Hunt Bookcase canvas I fell in love with it.

DIY Canvas

After checking the size of canvas I’d need for the wall I had in mind, I made the order and waited for it to arrive.
With it coming from Sweden, I thought it would take a while to get here but it arrived really quickly.

I hadn’t read all the information on the website (I’m always doing that!) so I didn’t realise it wasn’t going to be framed when it arrived.

photowall unmounted canvas

It wasn’t a problem, though, as it came with instructions, everything was good quality and it was easy to put together, according to the husband! (I’m sure if I had to do it on my own I could have!)

The only problem I had now was the state of the walls in the hall. They were in desperate need of repainting and we’d been putting it off for months because it was such a big job!

Let The Decorating Commence!

Seeing my new canvas in all its glory made me eager to get it on the wall so we went shopping and bought emulsion and gloss and set to work.

The reason it’s such a big job is that there’s a bookcase at the bottom of the stairs, 4 long bookshelves on the wall in the middle of the stairs (we have stairs that have a mini landing then more stairs) and more bookcases on the landing at the top of the stairs.
There are also lots of pictures on the walls.

We expected it to take 2-3 days like it usually does when we decorate but here we are, nearly a week later and Ant has ended up doing the majority of the decorating on his own because I pulled my hernia the day we started and haven’t been able to do anything since.

My Treasure Hunt Bookcase Canvas Cheered Me Up!

I’ve been pretty down all week due to the pain and also the frustration of not being able to help Ant.
He finished the hall yesterday apart from repainting the bookcase and last night he hung the canvas.
Every time I walk through to the kitchen or bathroom I see it hanging there and it makes me smile 🙂

There’s so much detail. Every time I look at it I notice something new.

More Decorating On The Way

A few years ago we decorated the stairs. I loved it when it was first done but now it’s starting to look a little grubby so we decided that we’d redo them while we were decorating.
Because of all the books and my lovely new treasure hunt bookcase canvas, we thought it would be a good idea to keep the book theme so we’re going to paint the stair steps black and the risers are going to be book spines, something like these on Pinterest.

We’ve each chosen our favourite books and I’m going to use the Cricut to cut the book titles out of vinyl.
I can’t wait!

I’ll be back with pictures when the rest of the decorating is done 🙂

The lovely people at Photowall have given me a discount code to share with you 🙂

Please note: I received the wall canvas from Photowall in return for this review, however, all opinions are my own.

How to Declutter Your Wardrobe This New Year

declutter your wardrobe
Image by TEENA COBB from Pixabay

As a new year approaches, people will usually find their wardrobes full of clothes. Some of these garments are their favourites. Others are hardly worn items that they may need to dispose of because these take up too much space in our closets.

Letting go of the clothes that you have owned for years can be difficult. However, you must throw away items you no longer use if you want to have enough space or, better yet, to have a more organized wardrobe.

Do you want to organize your closet, but you don’t know where to start? Don’t worry. These six useful tips should help you declutter your wardrobe.

Tip 1: Sort Out All the Stuff in Your Wardrobe

Before deciding on throwing anything away, take everything out of your wardrobe. After that, start organizing clothes according to their types: pants, tops, dresses, and etc. Similar items are easier to compare when they’re grouped together.

When segregating clothes, keep only the items you love and frequently use. People usually don’t wear at least half of the clothes in their wardrobe, so don’t feel bad if you dispose of many clothes. After all, what good will an item bring you if it won’t be used for years to come?

Tip 2: Try to Wear the Clothes in Your “Maybe” Pile

Sometimes, you don’t know if you truly want to keep an item or throw it away. The best way to resolve this problem is to try out the clothing you’re unsure of. Check yourself in front of a mirror, and determine how the item makes you look and feel.

If an item looks nice and is comfortable to wear, keep it. On the other hand, unflattering clothes must be taken out of the closet and be disposed of properly.

Tip 3: Follow the Six-Month-Clutter Rule

Many have a lot of second thoughts when it comes to getting rid of clothes. People tend to keep everything in their closet because they think that these may come in handy someday. However, the truth is that they’ll probably never wear those clothes again.

Unless the items are seasonal and very important, follow the six-month-clutter rule. Make a commitment to discard clothes you haven’t worn in the past six months. This way, you can easily have more space for new clothes.

Tip 4: Sell Your Preloved Clothes Online

Many people want to sell their hardly worn clothes but don’t have enough time to put up a garage sale. To solve this problem, set up an online shop to sell all your preloved items.

Online selling is very convenient and highly lucrative. When you sell your preloved clothes, you’re also earning back a portion of your past shopping expenses.

Tip 5: Host a Clothing Swap

A clothing swap is a fun and creative way to replace some of the gently used clothes at home. It involves meeting up with friends and swapping preloved clothes for the secondhand items they’d love to take home.

Organizing a clothing swap is easy. You just have to contact your friends and ask them to bring some preloved items they’re willing to exchange for another. If there are clothes left unclaimed, you can give them away to people who are in need of basic clothing.

Tip 6: Donate to a Local Charity

Donating preloved clothes to local charities is probably one of the most rewarding ways to declutter your wardrobe. Selecting the best local charity to donate to can be a little challenging since many organizations accept wardrobe donations.

When the time comes to make a decision, pick the one you feel strongly about. You must also ensure that the type of clothing you’ll be donating fits the charity you’ve chosen. Don’t give away impractical items like costumes and gowns if your chosen charity is looking for basic clothes.
