In my downtime in the last few weeks, I have become caught up in reading about DIY projects that I am hoping to try in the new condo (TUESDAY!!). Maybe I am feeling inspired because it's a new place, new time in life; I'm not sure, but here are the few that I am most excited about:
1. How to make wine bottles into drinking glasses. For someone who goes through their fair share of wine bottles, it wouldn't cost that much extra. I was just about to go out and buy a new set of drinking glasses, but this is way more fun and maybe even a little green? Shane may end up doing most of the work, but he's into it.
2. How to make homemade laundry detergent. I didn't know this was possible and secondly, I couldn't figure out "WHY?". Is it more environmentally friendly? Is it healthier? Is it better for the longevity of your clothes? No, no, and no. Then what??? Money, money, money. I am sold. More money to buy more clothes is how I see it.
3. How to make newspapers into logs for the fire. Now this one is almost too dorky, but why not since we have a wood-burning fire place these days.
4. Finally, how to make twist tie horses. Beware Mel, these might be our new go-to decorations for the condo. I especially like the color.
