1. DIY book page tutorial. I saw a cute idea using book pages and mod podge to create things like lamps shades and art to hang on you walls. I loved the idea and pinned it thinking I would have to try it some time. Well, the time came! During our move one of our book shelves broke in half. The half of it that was still in one piece was still usable as a small shelf, but the top of it wasn’t finished (because you’re not supposed to be able to see the top). I wanted to be able to keep the shelf and use it so I remembered this idea and decided to make a sort of covering for the shelf.
2. DIY Draino. This is an awesome idea. Draino is expensive, and I have a lot of hair. Our sinks were constantly clogging up in our old apartment so when I found this, I had to give it a try. It really does work! All you need is vinegar, baking soda, and a pot of boiling water. Pour the vinegar and baking soda down the drain, let it settle for about 10 minutes, then pour your whole pot of water down the drain. Easy peasy. (Yeah, you heard me.)
3. Ballet Boot Camp: Barre Fitness. This is my new favorite thing! In recent months I have been really focused on toning my legs, and so I’ve turned to ballet. I’ve done a few ballet work outs, but I think this one takes the cake. I like that my legs are looking good, but the rest of my body is getting toned at the same time. I’ve noticed my posture improving as well! I’ve just finished my first week, and I’m looking forward to continuing.
4. Painted Keys. This is simple. Just saw picture about brightening up boring old keys by painting the tops of them. I had read about using regular paint as well as nail polish. I picked out my favorite pink nail polish, and decided to give it a shot.
Those are my projects for the month! Until next time, check out what I’m Pinning!
