Outdoor Flooring: A Quick and Easy DIY Project for Anyone!
With Spring rapidly approaching, it’s time to start planning outdoor DIY projects , and I’ve come across one that is easy to do and easy on the budget. When we think of outdoor decorating, we often forget that what goes under our feet can make a great contribution to our outdoor decor.
One of the easiest ways to update the look of your patio, porch or deck is to add some kind of floor feature, whether it is an outdoor area rug, or floor tiles like the Le Click Interlocking Teak Floor Tiles! Read more
For those of you that live way out on the East Coast and in the South, you surely know what a huge pain the summer can be when those massive thunderstorms roll around, especially if you own cushioned or weather-sensitive patio furniture.
Of course, most folks just deal with it and move the furniture to drier ground when it looks as if a storm is a-brewing. The only problem with that solution is that it always seems like thunderstorms strike at the worst possible moment. There is just no possible way to be there for every single storm all summer. Because of this most just suck it up and replace the furniture’s cushions every year; the problem is even worse for those with weather-sensitive items, in which entire sets must be replaced every few years.
However, there is a simple and practical solution to summertime storms ruining your patio furniture. The easiest, quickest and, most importantly, least expensive solution I have heard about is purchasing outdoor furniture covers by Laminet Cover. These covers are available in sizes specially made for round tables, chairs and chaise lounges. Made with two levels of polyethylene material that has been UV-stabilized, these covers really get the job done.
What is also great about the UV stabilization is that bright, sunny days will not dry out the covers, leaving them susceptible to cracking and tearing. In fact, these covers are tear resistant. This is great because it would be really annoying to have to bring your furniture inside on sunny days to keep the covers from cracking and tearing!
At the base are round grommets, and a set of nylon tie-downs are included. These features allow tying the base shut, keeping your furniture really safe from moisture and keep the furniture covers from blowing away in the wind.
All of these furniture covers and other outdoor furniture accessories can be found online at Stacks and Stacks!

BUY A FILE CABINET.
When a prospective client tells me of their paper challenges, one of the first questions I ask is, “Do you own a file cabinet?”
They often reply…
“File cabinets are really ugly.”
“I have a plastic one that broke.”
“File cabinets are just expensive boxes.”
These statements bring a tear to my eye. Read more
Organizing itself is definitely in style, but what about the tools you use to organize – are they pulling their weight in terms of aesthetics? Nowadays, you can find almost any type of organizer that has been updated to look as good as it works. You don’t have to keep everything in unsightly plastic boxes if you don’t want to. Believe me, plastic box storage has its place, but that place is in a closet or in the garage. Not in plain view of everyone that walks through your house! There is little room for excuse anymore. Stylish organizers are available for every room of the home! Read more
