DIY Lamp: A Taste of Fall

Clare Vaterlaus

Today's DIY Lamp Shade was found on the blog My 1929 Charmer. This is a great decoration to bring the feeling of Fall into your home. The nice thing about this DIY Lamp Shade is that you can take it down when the season is over. It is a simple cover up. All you need to do is take a trip to the local dollar store and buy some burlap and a few fall decorations and let your creative side roll. Feel free to read more on "how to" make this shade on the blog My 1929 Charmer.

DIY: Night Light

Clare Vaterlaus

The kids went back to school today! It is time to get back on a schedule and get the kids to bed early. Often kids wake up throughout the night frightened or with the urge to go to the bathroom. Trying to walk to the bathroom is scary when it is pitch black, even for some adults. We found a list of the 41 Coolest Night Lights for kids. Some of them have links to purchase and some are DIY. If you need help installing them, or need an outlet closer to the bathroom or bed room give us a call.

DIY Lamp: Back to School

Clare Vaterlaus

The summer is almost over and the kids are on their way back to school. Getting kids to do their homework is always a battle. There are a few things that will help to alleviate some of this stress. Allowing them an area where they feel comfortable and they have enough space and light will make completing their homework easier and gives them a sense of routine. A great way to create more space and light is to hang a desk like to the wall, instead of keeping it on the desk. For more details on how to do this, read this DIY. Good luck with BACK TO SCHOOL!
