I am so thankful for your encouraging words on the shed makeover. Just by taking the time to appreciate not the design, but notice the hard work that goes into something is really a gift so many of you posses. You know it makes you a DAY-MAKER! And if there is something to strive to be it is that! My entire blog and life is about NOT striving for perfection. It is about doing it better than before. If you are working on a project and you have done all the research, created a design board, found an inspiration picture. Go for it! Don’t over think it. And most importantly don’t compare or question yourself when it is done.
Be proud of the work you created and the fact that it is done!
I guarantee it is better than before!
The reason we didn’t add it to the shed in the first place was because the light I found at our local Home Depot was out of stock. So I thought I could add it later. Then yesterday I was in our basement and noticed THIS light we had sitting down there (I had posted it for sale on a local FB page and it hadn’t sold yet). I resurrected it and gave it a coat of my Favorite Gold Spray Paint (the bronze). Then added the Magic Light Trick to it! Not sure how often I will really turn it on….maybe when we have guests over!
I did spray paint the handle of the door with the same gold spray paint to pull it together. Someone had suggested I spray paint all the hardware. I loved that idea but decided against it….for now!
How to Triple the Life of Strawberries-
I first saw this Strawberry Trick over on @ClassyClutter Instagram Highlights. How to Triple the life of Strawberries! Kevin walked in the door with Strawberries. At first I was like….”those will not last and I will end up freezing them because they go bad in a day”! But then I remembered the strawberry trick and decided to try it. The result- it works!! And SO many of you said you do this all the time and agree it works. Also you do it to grapes, berries, veggies…all of it! NO VINEGAR FLAVOR!! Here is what you do-
- Get a large bowl or use your sink.
- Cover the strawberries in water. T
- Add in 1 cup of vinegar (can be white or apple cider vinegar, I used white). The ratio ended up being 5 parts water to 1 part vinegar.
- Set a timer for 10 minutes. Empty the water.
- Lay strawberries on a towel (that you don’t mind it gets red) to dry. It takes a couple hours.
- Place strawberries in a container in the fridge. I have used plastic and glass. Either one works!
Many readers suggested THESE containers to prolong the life of the strawberries and fruit even longer.
I did remove the stem of my strawberries because my kids waste so much of the strawberry if not. So many readers told me I needed THIS Strawberry Huller and save the stems for smoothies! The most nutrients are in the stem!
