1) Repaint or refinish outdoor furniture; consider a new color for a big change.
5) Consider making or purchasing a hand painted canvas rug; these are great for outdoor patios or decks and many artists will offer a wide choice of different designs with custom color options.

Here are some great ideas for creating more pantry storage in a small kitchen:
Re-organize to make a smarter pantry. Taller items on pantry shelves in back, shorter in front. Use baskets for bulky items and containers to corral small, misc. items.Adjust height of shelves to match the size of the pantry item and maximize the efficiency of your pantry storage space.Consider moving food items to drawers. More items can be stored in a drawer; label tops for quick identification.Install roll-out pantry drawers for easier access. Because you can see more, you can store more.Reclaim a closet.Reclaim storage between studs of wall.Take out the kitchen soffits to move infrequently used items above kitchen cabinets; make new pantry cabinet space below.Delegate pantry food storage outside of the kitchen: under the living room couch or out in the garage.Tuck pantry food items inside decorative furnishings, like a crock.Think on a smaller scale: consider a mini-version of a walk-in pantry.Take 12" out of hallway width for pantry shelves.Recycle wooden crates from wine, mount to walls as a shelf (can get free from wine stores or superstores).Make a skinny box on wheels next to empty space next to your refrigerator (same height) that can wheel out.Use over-the-door racks for extra storage on closet doors. For very narrow doors, take a hanging shoe pouch for over-doors and cut to fit.Purchase an antique or used furniture cabinet at a garage sale or flea market and refit the furniture for pantry use.Hanging up items is an alternative to using cabinet space.Install pantry shelving in kitchen where spices and staples can be stored out in the open.Hang pots up on a pot rack to free space up inside cabinets for pantry goods or keep inside oven when not in use.Put utensils in utensil caddies on the countertop to free up additional pantry space inside cabinets - flatware can be stored also in a decorative container on the table.Take a lesson from closet clothing storage experts and copy their unique storage ideas or even utilize their products for your food storage needs.

Gentlemen, when you decide to decorate your bedroom surely you want to have a stylish and functional design that also shows your masculine side. Well, read on because we have some bedroom design ideas for men.
Another design of the bedroom that give prominence to masculinity is a rustic style. In this design, the bedroom will mainly contain items made from wood. Therefore, the room can be decorated to resemble a luxurious ski lodge or a cabin in the woods. In rustic style, the furniture should be made from material with a strong natural characteristic, like oak, pine or hickory. Choose a heavy but simple piece of furniture. Select a bed with a slated headboard. In terms of bedding materials, you may choose from various materials like cotton, denim, flannel, wool or knit. Rustic style bedroom should also remain simple with color patterns that comprised of shades of blue, green, brown, khaki and beige. The natural elements should be maintained for the window blinds. Therefore, select wooden blinds with color that match the furnishings. To create a synergy amongst the bedroom elements, the lighting should also be made from natural elements like wood or iron. It is best if you choose an artwork that displays nature scenes. To complete the rustic look, a geometrical Persian rug would be a perfect choice.

Goodie bags are perfectly sensible for scout meetings and other group activities in which games generate prizes or other accomplishments are rewarded with patches or certificates which will need to be carried home. These can be sadly lost in the confusion of large rambunctious occasions. Issuing everyone a goodie bag with a few items inside will eliminate some of this problem. Writing names on the goodie bags will also help.Goody Bags are Good Party Fun
Parties generate a lot of take home items and goodie bags are reasonable party expenditures because of this. The variety available allows for just the right goodie bags to match with just the right occasion.

5. Pick a house design. If this is your first gingerbread house party, I suggest you keep to only 1 house design and make it a simple one. Use either an A-Frame design or a basic house design. Don't attempt anything with a second story. That's something to work up to.
7. Assemble your houses the night before the party. Assembling the night before ensures that the icing will be dry when your guests arrive. Use an assembly line method. If using a basic house design, construct the 4 walls first for all the houses. By the time you are done with the walls of the last house, the first house will be dry enough to put the roof on.
