Today Todd and I had a blast on this oh, so snowy day!
Here are today’s hacks from Chapter 8: Home Repair!
Moving Marble – If you’re moving a large piece of marble, such as a tabletop, always transport it upright. If you carry it flat, it can crack under its own weight
Walls have cavities, too! – Small holes in your white walls? Its toothpaste to the rescue! Simply job a small amount of white non-gel toothpaste into the hole, and you’ll never notice it again – or at least your guests won’t.
Wallpaper 101 – Hang wallpaper? Try using a paint roller to apply paste, instead of a sponge, then use a separate clean paint roller to smooth it out afterward. You’ll get more coverage per stroke.
Get rid of Paint Smell – If you hate the smell of drying paint, fix it before you start. Simply add one and a half teaspoons of vanilla extract to a gallon of paint, and your drying walls will smell delicious.
Smooth enough to use? – If you were sanding wood and want to know when it’s smooth enough, use the pantyhose test: Slip an old nylon stocking over your hand and run it over the wood. You’ll have no trouble finding the slightest rough spot. Just don’t wear those nylons afterwards!
Flour power – If you’re painting old woodwork and need to patch small holes, fill them with flour and then paint. It will Harden without being noticeable.
Question of the Day!
How many times have you hit your fingers while hammering a nail? Let us know below in the comment section of the blog or Underneath the post on Facebook or Twitter! (Remember, kid friendly!)
Here’s a hack to stop smashing your fingers- next time you’re hanging pictures, put the nail between the spokes of a fork before hammering. Your fingers will thank you, and your kids won’t have to hear you say bad words.
