We have a lot of land around us, so we’re not too close to the neighbors (including my parents!). When it is full, cut off the wool, close the pom pom maker and repeat the process on the other side. Polarised glasses are a bit more expensive but they really do help cut down glare if you’re doing a lot of driving. I purchased these to make good on my pledge to cut my use of single-use plastic straws. Is there something unique about your home or the way you use it? I am trying not to use plastic straws as it’s not good for our bodies or the environment. We weren’t sure exactly what we wanted to do but it was important to us that we build in a way that was respectful of the land and the environment and that would be sustainable for us to live in long-term.
It’s a kit that you build and finish yourself, but the actual functionality of the drop-leaf table is great. The drop-leaf table is perfect because we can push it up against the wall when we don’t need it, but when we pull it out, we can fit six to eight people around it. The dimensions of the space are a little tricky, so it allowed us to build exactly what we wanted that would fit in the space without being at the mercy of standard off-the-shelf cabinets. It goes back to us not having a ton of floor space. By doing so, I was able to maximize the floor space without having to sacrifice some of it to a piece of furniture. Our dining room isn’t very big and putting a table in the middle of it would mean you’d have an awkward path from the exterior door into the space. On a smaller scale, I think using furniture that is flexible, like our dining table, is very practical to make the most of a small space. It’s the perfect combination of dining space and additional storage. It’s the perfect place to be on a cold, snowy day.
Perfect for travel, beach vacation or weekend brunches, this crossbody warehouse straw bag bag will be a trendy addition to your bag collection. The popularity of the bucket bag may have peaked in the mid 2010s, thanks largely in part to the launch of Mansur Gavriel’s now-iconic drawstring version, but a simple scroll through Instagram will prove that bucket bags remain just as popular today. I don’t mind the logo standing out for this design, but I just started thinking that if they offered a tonal logo version, I might love it even more. Sure, it would have been nice to have more storage, but this way we’re not keeping too much stuff around and we have a better view. We did make the house livable all on one floor so if we can’t climb the stairs when we’re old or if our parents come live with us, it’s accessible. Come along with me to taste the food, explore the culture, go hiking and cycling, experience a luxury cruise or boutique hotel. These days, there are tons of iterations of the woven style, with luxury designers putting their high fashion spin (and price tag) on the humble carryalls.
There are still so many unfinished things in our house (I mean, we literally have no interior doors!) but we’ve made so many great memories here already and it’s never felt like those things were holding us back. And if you’ve never had an interior water problem, you’ll want to keep it that way by making sure the grade continues to push water away from the foundation. Proper grading, correctly positioned downspouts and drains, and other factors all change the way water flows through and around your yard. Granted, you’ll likely be unable to move that 20-ton hunk of decorative marble on to the front yard with your 1983 hatchback. The move is part of the city’s Zero Waste 2040 strategy, which was approved by councillors in a vote on Wednesday. A part of me wishes we could have left the whole house open and lived in it for a while before we decided where the rooms should be! The layout of the house is pretty typical; we didn’t do anything crazy as far as rooms go. As far as DIYs since then, I’m pretty proud of the two closets in our entryway that I built.
