Happy Monday! I hope you guys had an excellent weekend! I worked on a few projects myself, when I had some spare time, and thought I would share. First off, our home was built in the 70's, it's in great shape and I love the openness we have, but it just needs some "cosmetic" updates. The original owners had a massive old brown stove that we replaced with our own white flat top. So, naturally the range hood is brown as well, but one thing I had never seen was this brown metal panel splash guard. I've hated the brown since I laid eyes on it.
Yuck! After a year of looking at it, its time was up. I will be painting that range hood soon as well.
Much better! The hood is wider than my stove, so I used the stove for my measurements
instead of the hood to center my art.
For the art, I bought cheap 4x6 wood frames, and sprayed them with Krylon spray paint.
I sanded down the edges and high points, then dry brushed some gray craft paint over them for an aged look. I cut some scrapbook paper to size, and taped hand written recipes from my Grandmother and Aunt (both which raised me), and hung them up! These make my heart smile.
I also wanted to share with you guys a product I found at Home Depot that has stolen my heart. We have quite a bit of ivory carpet in our home, not sure how long its been down. When we first moved in I was super impressed with how well it had been taken care of, with few spots. Over time some spots have appeared, which I know can sometimes happen after carpet cleaning. I had tried Hot Shot, Baking Soda and Vinegar, etc, etc, with no luck. I finally decided to try out a product called Folex I read about it on a blog I follow called, Owen Family 6 . This stuff is AWESOME!
Eww, I had no idea how long these spots had really been there.
Folex worked almost immediately with no harsh smells or chemicals. People, I crawled around my house for almost 2 hours cleaning every spot I could find, big or small. It removed shoe polish and wood stain (don't ask), Woot Woot! A gallon sized container was only $15.00!
I hope you all have a great Monday! Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to comment!
