Folding Card Table Playhouse

16251775_1852856608290758_4970716293962651417_oWow! My little three year old daughter would just love this. Right now she has a tunnel that collapses that she loves going through. She loves the idea of going under the table so this would make a great place for her to go in and play.

Unfortunately, I do not have the directions to make this – it is more an idea that I just wanted to pass along. If anyone has instructions or where this originally came from to give credit please let me know.

Turn Your Little One’s Bedroom Into Gorgeous Spaces With These Linens By Jason Phillips

Bed linens come in a wealth of designs, patterns and prints. Parents who want to revive their kids’ room should first focus on quality fabrics. Egyptian cotton and cotton blends are ideal choices. In fact, they’re healthy choices too. During the summer season your kids won’t be hot at night, and in the winter they won’t freeze under the covers. Transform average, unappealing bedrooms into amazing spaces; consider the finest fabrics for linens and make sure to select the finest designs. Here are some ingenious ideas to help you decide.

Educational sheets
Become a teacher for your kids and buy them “educational” sheets. Linens with letters, colors, fruits & veggies, and animals, are a fun way of introducing your little ones to the wonderful world of words. Every night, before going to bed, use the bedding to practice the alphabet. Each time reward your boy or girl with a kiss or even a healthy snack. Consider colorful designs, and make sure the pattern of the bed set matches with the overall décor of the bedroom.

Focus on diversity
A bed’s components should include mattress protectors, pillow case and sheet sets, blankets, and comforters. Most kids are picky when it comes to going to bed at a reasonable time. However, if they see a bed that looks appealing and comfortable they might be willing to give it try. Tuck into bed with them and read them a story; or have fun admiring the car printing of the bedding set. For boys, make sure to consider darker colors of blue and brown with animal patterns. Girls on the other hand, will definitely appreciate a pink bed set with white polka dots and golden linings.

Decorative pillows for an added effect
Decorative pillows can create an effect in your son or daughter’s bedroom. When they’re little all they want to do is stay awake for as long as possible. But, the right bed set could convince them to go bed earlier. Leaving aside the sheets, their beds should also feature decorative pillows with fun shapes and interesting patterns. The coolest are those with favorite cartoon stars imprinted, like Mickey Mouse, The Minions, Cinderella, and so on.

Gorgeous linens
Each time we hear the words line fabric, we immediately think of bed sets. But there’s more to Egyptian cotton materials than meets the eye. The fabric can be used to make curtains, table cloths, towels and more. If you want to personalize your kid’s room, you can purchase the fabric and have both bedding and curtains made. Matching bed sheets with curtains will instantly transform a dull room into the coolest space. Kids will love the end result; when they’re little they want to have colorful, bright rooms filled with toys. You can make that happen without investing a fortune. Custom-made linens are becoming increasingly more popular. People use the same patterns for covers, curtains, table linens and more. This way your room will look extremely harmonious and balanced.

Stripes and zigzags
Preschoolers adore having the most colorful bedrooms; teenagers on the other hand are a lot more pretentious. They want to act like adults, and instead of colors and toys, they would rather go for more modern designs that blend beautifully with their desk and tech devices. Stripes are an excellent design type for the bedroom of a teenager. It creates movement without looking too striking and it looks modern too. For girls, combos of white and pastel pink for the bedding set are ideal; and boys will certainly love a black and white mix. For an added effect, you can opt for sheets with ombre colorings. Kids will adore the pattern because it looks striking without being too flashy or extravagant.

Selecting a linen fabric can be a challenge too. Not everyone can afford to purchase sheets made of Egyptian cotton. However, it is important to focus on quality. 100% cotton written on a label has to be 100% cotton; this way your kids won’t sweat when sleeping and in the winter they’ll feel warm and cozy. As an alternative, you can also consider cotton blends. These have a lower quality but they feature affordable costs.

Old Bath Tub Turned Into Seating Area

10353192_10204308639660260_1953544052678936601_nl I love ideas like this – I have no idea how it was done to such detail. This would literally last for a lifetime plus (just replacing the cushion). I would believe it could have also been cut so that instead of one side being left it could have been cut so the back and small amounts of sides could have been left to make a couch. The paint used must have been enamel and I imaging polyurethane was sprayed to make a finish that is very durable.

Easter Egg Wreath

59780_453138318092647_1127927847_nThis would make an awesome decoration that you can even make with your child. With all of the varieties of these plastic Easter eggs available this could go into any direction: Mix and match, use all glitter, use a theme, all animal designs. Start with a Styrofoam wreath of your choosing. Take a ribbon or thin wire and wrap it around the top to make a loop to use as a hanger.Wrap the wreath in a cheap fabric (use scrap or buy a festive Easter color or print) and hot glue and pin this together. Use hot glue to attach eggs – starting with the largest and going smaller to fill in the gaps. You could add a little Easter basket grass as you go if you wish. Add a festive bow to complete.

Helpful Tips

Shaving cream can be used as a spot cleaner on carpets, upholstery and even clothing. If you are not sure whether your upholstery can be cleaned with water, check first in an inconspicuous area.

Need a nice-smelling house but don’t feel like baking cookies? Try simmering a pot of spices on the stove. Add several cloves and a teaspoon of cinnamon or pumpkin-pie spice to a few cups of water. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 20 minutes or so. Your house will have a delicious scent — good enough to eat!
