Revive Old Patio Furniture

This post is nothing new. Many people have  painted their patio furniture to give it an update. My husband flips houses and found these chairs in a backyard. The Arizona sun beat them up pretty good. There were some hideous cushions also, but I will spare you the photos of them.

You Will Need:
Spray primer- 2 cans per chair
Spray pain- 2 cans per chair

Make sure you paint in a well ventilated area and wearing a mask would be extra safe. I primed each chair with thick coats, let dry for 15 minutes, and then added my color. I added cushions and decor I already had. Whats funny is the table base was free also from a house my husband had. He built and stained the table top. So this whole seating grouping cost me $20 in spray paint (minus the decor and we already had the wood and cushions)!! I suggest looking on Craigslist for some free/cheap furniture. This time of year is very popular for those listings. Good luck.

Unique, Beautiful Girls Hairstyle Ideas!

My niece Maddi always has the CUTEST hairstyles. My sister-in-law Tricia is very talented when it comes to little girls hair. She did this cool design on my daughter. She mixed a basket weave with a french braid to keep the bangs back and then french braided and twisted the rest into an updo. She gets her ideas from The styles will take lots of hairspray and practice. I would love to see what you end up with!

Want the softest cookies ever?

My grandmother used to do this trick all the time when I was little. It really helps when you over-bake cookies, leave them out too long at a party, or simply want super soft cookies. You simply stick a piece of bread in an air-tight container with the cookies and overnight you will have deliciously soft cookies. People would look at me like I am crazy, but it works.

This works because the MOIST bread gives up its water vapor into the air, then the DRY bread gains the water from the moist air.

I think I am going to try this trick for stale cereal and chips!
