TURN Recycled plastic water bottles into FOOT STOOLS

SOURCE: Pinterest

I shared this on my Facebook page last year - what a keeper that needs to be kept and filed away for that things to do list...

Now this is recycling!!! Make a foot stool out of plastic water bottles. Cover and voila' you have saved many bottles from the landfill.

Now the issue is, How to make a cover that looks as good as these!

Closets with Curtains

SOURCE: Pinterest

The beautiful sunshine and warm weather have me, dreaming of decorating, gardening and landscaping. It's frustrating - I just can't physically do as much as I used to. Same with my husband. We plan BIG but our actual productivity is small.

Today has me spray painting a small metal shelf, to place in my closet, for my shoes. We still don't have the closet doors on yet and my husband doesn't want them back on. He wants to hang a curtain! I will humor him for a while since we have other things more important. When we went to IKEA, we saw their bedroom displays with closets with curtains and they looked nice. My deal, is I am trying to eliminate dust.

We do not have spacious walk-in closets. Here are some ideas. Which one do you like the best?
