Piano Reformation Into A Bar

1422381_820159468109537_4289787679311676909_nI found this design online and though that it was an incredible repourpose of a piano that apparently is no longer usable. I could also see this made into a dining room hutch and buffet style piece of furniture. Nice to see something so grand used in a different way.

Decorate with paints and trim and left over doo dads – just make sure none of it makes noise because it might scare of the birds. Make a loop with thin wire and with two punched holes in the lid (use a push pin or if you want use a very small drill hole. Make the top half go over the bottom half and glue with epoxy or E6000.

It makes it easier to make pancakes and waffles because there is no spillage. A lrge bottle could hold enough for a week. Keep refrigerated. Now you can enjoy pancakes and waffls without a lot of fuss.

Keep Valuables Safe At The Beach

safe lotion keys money safe beachWhat a great way to keep your valuables safe at the beach…. and it is free at that. You can use any bottle where the top of the container pops off – not the cap but on some bottles the top of the dispenser can be popped off from the bottle. Add a washcloth to wrap money and keys inside the bottle so if someone cam upon it they wouldn’t hear it rattle and nothing inside would move. For an added bonus after you really apply lotion to yourself/family place a little on your hand and dab on the bottle for a great effect. If it looks like lotion and it feels like lotion when a would-be thief decides to steal they more than likely ill drop it and look elsewhere.

Outdoor Drink Holder From A Can

543708_429619690467194_251061827_nThoroughly clean can and dry — Paint or decoupage the outside of can with a unique design — Seal with polyurethane — You will need a (minimum size of) 18 inch galvanized bolt (about 2.50 at a hardware store) with a washer and nut. Puncture hole in bottom of can and push the bolt through from the inside of can until head in at the bottom. Under the can on the bolt add a washer and then secure the nut tightly. The longer bolt you use the better. You can also polyurethane the entire can, nut, washer and bolt once done to give a nice shiny presentation and to help prevent rust.
