Vintage Trailer Remodel - Retro Trailer - This is SO cute! Love this glamper!!

I’m Amy.  I work with The Crafting Chicks on the back side of their blog.  Years ago my cousins and I had a little blog to share all of our crafty projects.  We got busy and the blog disappeared.  But I still love to craft.  And I still get to work with the wonderful Crafting Chicks!

My parents have a piece of property that they stay at over the summers.  The grand kids just LOVE to go camping out there too.  Think…. 4 wheelers, zipline and archery range… yep.  The kids (and adults) LOVE it!

Last summer my parents were given a 1972 Rancho el Rae Camper Trailer.  The idea was to slap some paint on it and turn it into a guest house for their property.  As soon as I saw this trailer, I knew it needed to become a Glamper!  Let me show you what we did… (with links to tutorials that will help you to do the same!)

Retro Camping Trailer Remodel

Before

The base of the trailer was in fairly good condition.  But boy oh boy, was it dated.  (Don’t you just love that carpet?!  Yikes!)  We liked the aqua trim.  But the dark paneling, carpet and floral print just had to go.

After

What a difference!  Oh it turned out SO cute!  The color.  The light.  The retro feel.

Love. Love. Love!

Patching Holes

If you’ve got an old trailer, you know that you’ve got to do some repairs.  We had some water damage.  So my amazing Dad jumped in and started patching holes.  Here is a great tutorial to walk you through the process:  Patching Holes.

Paint

A little bit of paint makes a HUGE difference.  The white opened up the space and gave it a completely different feel.  The red drawers gave it that pop of color we were looking for.

Flooring

The first thing to come out was that carpet. Yikes!

We just fell in love with the black and white checkered tiles!  So much easier to clean and so fun!

Here is a great tutorial for installing new flooring:  Trailer Flooring.

Reupholstering Cushions

Our polka dot cushions turned out beautiful!  We used Riley Blake Fabric.  The cushions are a Home Decor fabric called Medium White Dot on Black.   If you haven’t used their fabric before, you are missing out!  Oh my!  It’s like sewing with clouds.  Truly.  (I just did another project without Riley Blake Fabric… it was like working with sand paper.  Awful!  I’ll be sticking with Riley Blake.)

Luckily, the kitchen table cushions were in great condition once we flipped them over.  Now the Aqua color shows beautifully.

My Mom tackled the bedroom cushions.  And they were a beast.  But she’s a miracle worker and they turned out adorable!!  The couch that folds into a bed was super complicated.

Here is a tutorial to help you with cushions:  Cushion Tutorial.

Curtains

The curtains are Riley Blake fabric as well.  We needed to double the material on the curtains, since the windows don’t have blinds.  We wanted the trailer to be light and bright during the day, have privacy at night, and keep the sun from peaking in during the early morning hours.  We made curtains ties to hold the curtains open during the day.  We attached the ties to the curtain on one side (so they don’t get lost) and they just velcro together in the back.

In the bedroom part of the trailer we used Four Corners Teal, Medium Dots Black, and White Swiss Dot on Black.

In the kitchen part of the trailer we used: Small Red Gingham, Medium Dots Black, and White Swiss Dot on Black.

We also made some accents pillows with Medium Dots Aqua/Red.

Painting the outside of a trailer

At first we had visions of a bright white trailer with a red stripe down the side.  Maybe a few polka dots here and there.  Then we decided NOT to paint the outside of the trailer.  Let me tell you why…  This trailer is, right now, sitting on mountain property surrounded by 5 feet of snow.  We can’t access the trailer for a good portion of the year.  That means that we can’t check on it to make sure that it hasn’t been broken into or being lived in (yikes!) as often as we would like to.  So we decided that it would be best to keep the outside of the trailer looking a little run down.  We don’t want the whole mountain to know what a darling trailer it has become!

If you want to paint the outside of your trailer, here is a great tutorial:  Painting the outside of a trailer.

The circle stick-on mirrors are from Amazon.

The adorable red teapot is from  Bed, Bath and Beyond.

The plates, table runner and vase are from IKEA.

The furry animal friends were added by the grand kids and are from KOHLS.

Do you have a trailer that is just begging for a little TLC?  What are you waiting for?  It isn’t as hard as you think and it’s so rewarding to transform an entire space!

Happy Glamping!

 


Spring Cleaning Checklist

Hello again Crafting Chicks! I’m Michelle from Michelle Lea Creative. Today I am sharing with you one of my favorite things! You’ll laugh when I tell you that it is a Cleaning Checklist. I love this cleaning checklist and use it each week to keep the house picked up and ready for a knock on the door. I have to be honest though… there are many times when I would die if someone showed up. My house can look like an episode of Hoarders on certain occasions. This cleaning list is meant to encourage you to do a little at a time and stay on top of your calendar for the next day… not to remind you of what you haven’t accomplished. There are far more important things than a spotless house.

My cleaning list doesn’t involve cleaning for hours each day. I believe in breaking things down into 15 minute or less tasks. The cleaning list also targets a different area/task each day. A big helper for me is preparing for the next day at night when the house is calm.

I have also listed 7 deep cleaning items to tackle each month. I typically work on them on the weekend or a day that I have caught up…. or when those dust bunnies on the fans have driven me crazy.

Cleaning Tips from the not at all great cleaner 🙂

1. Keep your cleaning products in a location that makes sense. I have all of my extra bottles in our laundry room, but I keep the supplies that I need to clean up the kitchen under my kitchen sink. I also keep the supplies needed for the bathroom in one central bathroom. This helps to cut down on my time spent running all around the house for the right cleaning supply.

2. Limit yourself to cleaners that do double and triple duty. I know that there are some cleaners that you just have to have, like stainless steel cleaner. But I use my window cleaner for way more surfaces than just windows and mirrors.

3. Have an area just inside the door you use to enter the house to drop your shoes, backpacks, etc. Leaving shoes at the door cuts down drastically on the dirt, mud and icky stuff that ends up all over your floors. I also use this area for keys and all of the mountain of things that I transfer to and from my car.

4. 15 minutes. When areas are getting out of control or you just don’t feel up to cleaning. Set a timer for 15 minutes and get everything done that you can and then give yourself a break and relax. You will be amazed at how relaxed you are after and how willing you are to finish cleaning and tidying up the rest beyond that 15 minutes.

5. Amazon Subscribe and Save. This probably sounds funny to some people. But I order my toilet paper, paper towels, detergents (dish, washer, and dishwasher), and cat food from Amazon Subscribe and Save. It automatically sends out another shipment at the interval that you choose and you typically get a discounted price for your larger quantity order. I’m also an Amazon Prime member so I get free 2 day shipping which is soooo awesome!

Years ago, I had tons of cleaners for every little situation. And I still have a few unusual cleaners in the back of my cabinet, but these are my everyday messy tacklers. I also really don’t like chemical smells, so many of the cleaners I use are more natural… at least to my nose.

Kids-Coloring-Storage-Organization

I don’t know if you’re anything like me, but I try to find storage for my kids things anywhere they might use it. So the coloring books and supplies end up in my china hutch.

Coloring-Organization

It’s a pretty storage space when you’re looking at it like this. But open up the cabinet that the coloring supplies are housed in and….

Coloring-cabinet

YIKES! It’s like my tupperware cabinet. Shove something in and hope it stays long enough to close the door.

So when I was walking around Michaels the other day and saw these darling chalk storage containers, I knew they were my solution. They match perfectly and were the perfect sizes. There are tons of fun things down the Maker Market isle in Michaels right now.

Coloring-storage-containers

 

First off, I cleaned out that cabinet and threw away a ton of old papers and broken crayons. By this time I had attracted the attention of my 2nd oldest. She was cooking with dad, but thought my project looked a bit more fun.

Kids-coloring-bin

We used the smaller crates to store the markers and crayons. I wrote on each of the chalk board sides with the chalk markers I purchased at Michaels as well. She loved helping add those into the crates.

coloring-storage

 

Next we made a bin for the coloring books, which I swear multiply. Then I needed an answer for all those homework woes, so I added in a homework bin. Each day after school, my girls are to unload their papers into this bin. I can then go through and trash what we don’t need and keep what we need to work on or what I want to save for later. This might be my favorite part!

Kids-coloring-bins

Then we came up with a configuration of the bins that would be most useful. Coloring book bin is in the back on the bottom, with the markers and crayons in front. My logic here is that they can grab those things if they need them for homework or anything, whereas the coloring books can be pulled out afterwards if that’s what they really want. The homework bin is on top for easy access. Did I mention that I’m excited for that one?

storage-coloring-bins

I love how the storage bins fit perfectly and slide out like little drawers. The answer to my prayers!

And there you have it! It looks a lot better then it did.

If are looking for more ideas, you can always take a look at some of the fun projects on Michaels.com or the other 49 Makers’ ideas on The Glue String for to see how they personalized their crafts!

Cleaning-after-holidays

If you are anything like me putting Christmas decor away is a whole day project. I feel like I need to clean out, dejunk, and scrub down anything that had Christmas decorations. Maybe it’s because I have a clean slate once all the Christmas decorations are down. I wanted to share with you my favorite things to do to get my home cleaned after the holidays. And really, this would work anytime you want to refresh.
After-Holidays-Cleaning-Checklist1

First off I made this bright printable checklist that you could store in with your Christmas decor. That way you will have it from year to year.

I love to enlist the help of my kids in getting everything cleaned up and put away. It’s nice for them to have responsibility. It also helps them take ownership in our Christmas decorations and the rest of the house when they get a chance to help put things away and place things where you want them to go.

I especially love their help with the tree.

5 steps to a spotless kitchen in 30 minutes

The kitchen is the one room in my house that we use all the time!  A clean kitchen = A Happy Mom!  I have found that a clean kitchen, even with other parts of the house a mess, can make or break a day.  Our family is calmer and happier with a clean place to eat, come together, and enjoy family dinner time together.

I’ve found a clean kitchen routine that works for us…without fail…if we keep it up, we have a happier home=happier family members.  If you do these 6 steps each day, your kitchen will stay sparkling clean all week.

lavastoviglie

I also find that if I do these 6 steps in this order, it just makes sense.  For example, it’s easier to clean the counters after the dishes are done, and easier to clean the floors after the counters are cleaned…hence the method to my madness.

Step 1:  Dishes in 5 minutes.

Each night we do the dishes and start the dishwasher.  In the morning, I do a quick unload job and load up our breakfast dishes.  This usually only takes 5 minutes, and makes my day less hectic.  If I wait to unload it until later, the dishes pile up and our evening chores take longer.

Step 2:  A clean sink in 5 minutes.

I love a clean sink.  Your kitchen will smell fresh if you clean your sink daily.  After loading the dishwasher, I put a little cleaner in both sinks, and scrub away.  I make sure to brush over the drains.  I also run my disposal for 20 seconds with hot water.  If you have lemon or orange peels, those are great to add to your disposal.

Step 3: Wipe down appliances in 5 minutes.

With this few minutes a day, it saves a lot of clean up time each week if I wipe down the stovetop, and kitchen appliances daily.  Just do a quick sweep to remove that cooked on water and food.  You can also quickly wipe down the microwave inside and out, and peek inside the fridge for any spills.   It’s much harder to clean when food and liquids have been sitting for a week or so.

Step 4: Wipe down counters in 5 minutes.

After the dishes are put away, quickly wipe the counters down.  A trick that I use to make it quicker…baby wipes!  I take a baby wipe and clear off crumbs.  Then when I use my sponge/washcloth it makes for a quicker job!  It’s so nice to have clean counters for the next meal you will be making or serving.

Step 5: Straighten drawers or cabinets in 5 minutes.

No matter how organized the drawers start out, they get so cluttered in just a few days!  Just choose one or two drawers or cupboards to straighten each day.  (you can pass on the tupperware one…can that one ever be saved!)  This saves me from a huge day of organizing the kitchen tools that get misplaced.

 

Step 6:  Sweep or Vacuum Kitchen Floor in 5 minutes.

This step is my favorite.  I have walnut wood floors throughout my kitchen and dining area.  They are so pretty…but can be a beast!  Every crumb shows!  Well friends…I have to tell you my new secret, I don’t even sweep!  I vacuum with the new Dyson V6 Absolute.   It is a cordless vacuum that is AMAZING.  I know you have heard of a Dyson vacuum, and I was so excited to try this out.  I love it.  It hangs right in my pantry, charged up and ready to tackle the next mess….which can be 3 or more times a day.  It is so light weight and even my kids can help.  You will have to read more about this amazing vacuum below and how you can get one this weekend for an awesome price!  I love that you can use it on carpet…or any surface.  And the attachment tools are the icing on the cake!

And that is how I keep up with the kitchen madness.  I can’t say much for the other rooms in my house, but when my kitchen is clean, I can breathe a sigh of relief!

 

dyson_v6_absolute_cordless_vacuum__96753.1425487786.1280.1280 And now for some great news for our readers.  On QVC, you can get the most amazing deal on the Dyson V6 Absolute.   We are giving you a sneak preview today but you won’t be able to purchase this on QVC until August 16th at midnight (ET).  The retail price is for around $600 but you can purchase it on QVC for $469.  You can read below details about how the vacuum was made, designed and why it is so powerful.   DysonV6AbsoluteInAction

The V6 Absolute has two cleaner heads complete with HEPA filtration and is designed to tackle all floor types. It provides the power of a corded upright and reinvents the way you tackle dirt, with cord-free convenience. For the first time in the US, the machine will be available in two new colors: black and blue. The hero color will be red.

Big debris or microscopic dust? Most vacuum cleaners suck up one or the other, leaving either crevices full of dust or piles of Cheerios snow ploughed to the wall. Dyson’s latest cordless machine reinvents the way you tackle dirt, big and small, ensuring particles of all sizes are sucked up and flung into the bin. HEPA Filtration to capture allergens and expel cleaner air. Removes 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns.

The problem:

To pick-up fine dust, a machine needs to have a tight all-round seal to the floor. Keeping this seal means that larger particles, like rice or large cereals, pile up in front of the machine. Introduce a gap for this large debris and the machine is no longer sealed, the suction drops, and fine dust is left behind.

 The solution:

Using a soft roller cleaner head, Dyson engineers have radically redesigned the traditional cleaner head so that it tackles both big and small debris. Rather than strips of hard bristles, the soft roller cleaner head has a full width roller, covered with a soft nylon material and rows of carbon fiber filaments.

Large debris are enveloped by the soft material and flung inside the cleaner head, while the antistatic qualities of the carbon fiber filaments gently remove fine dust, without damaging floors.

James Dyson said, “To engineer a machine that tackles both fine dust and larger debris, like Cheerios, we needed to change the way we pick-up the dirt from the floor. The power of our patented V6 Dyson Digital Motor, combined with our revolutionised cleaner head, means V6 Absolute can tackle dust and that pesky cereal.”

V6 Absolute is also the first cordless machine to include two Dyson engineered cleaner heads: soft roller cleaner head, as well as Motorhead. The soft roller cleaner head uses a larger roller covered in soft woven nylon, while Motorhead features a second, direct drive motor and stiff nylon bristles for powerful performance on carpets.

Hey everyone! I’m Kristin from Yellow Bliss Road and I am so excited to be here! A huge thank you to the Crafting Chicks for having me over today! At Yellow Bliss Road, I love to share simple & delicious recipes and fun free printables, especially around the holidays.

For my gift idea, I decided to put together two of the things I love most about Christmas – 1) Gift giving, and 2) the delicious scents of cranberry, cinnamon and citrus. Want to make your home and your neighbor’s smell like CHRISTMAS? Read on and I’ll show you how!

Christmas Stovetop Potpourri and Free Printable Gift Tags

I love to fill my home with amazing scents during the holidays, and there’s no better combination than citrus and cranberry mixed with cinnamon and spices. This is a simple recipe that you can simmer on your stovetop or in a crockpot to help fill your home with these delicious scents.

Christmas Stovetop Potpourri - This stuff smells amazing!!

All of these ingredients are combined in a small pot on the stove. Since I thought this would be a great gift idea, I created a fun printable tag to go with it. Just right click on the image above to save it to your computer, then print as many as you need.

Christmas Potpourri Tag

Just place the ingredients in a jar or gift bag. I’ll be honest, it wasn’t easy getting that orange in there so I’d suggest choosing a small orange, or slicing it and placing it in a ziploc bag before adding it to your jar. You also want to place the spices in a small bag so they dont just fall to the bottom. I simply cut the corner of a ziploc bag, poured the spices in, then tied it with a small piece of twine.

For the top, I just cut a circle out of a brown paper lunch bag and placed it under the ring of the mason jar. I then added a “To” and “From” just in my own handwriting. I attached the tag with some twine.

Christmas Potpourri with free printable tag

I love how fresh and rustic this gift is, and I love that it’s not another food gift!

Thanks again for letting me visit!

I don’t know about you, but it seems like I can never have enough Kleenex© Ultra Soft around my house. As a mother of 3 little girls, it seems like someone is always sniffling or sneezing especially when school starts and the germs start to circulate. The Kleenex Ultra Soft Facial Tissues are the best because they are super soft for those sensetive noses. gift-tags-for-teacher   I love to give Kleenex Ultra Soft to our new school teachers each year too, since they are dealing with a lot more sniffles and sneezes then I am on a daily basis. That’s another reason I buy a big pack of Kleenex© Ultra Soft from Sam’s Club. Then I can still have a stockpile at my house and be fine with gifting these. Another time saver is that Sam’s Club offers FREE online Order Pickup so you don’t have to do a ton of shopping if you have little helpers coming with you. So if you are like me and wanting to gift some Kleenex© Ultra Soft I’ve made it super easy with these great tags. Teachers-Printables In order to make this gift just run to your local Sam’s Club, then download and print these tags in color.

I made 2 different color schemes and I used a cardstock weight paper so the tags would hold up a bit. cc_download Kleenex-Teacher-Gift-Idea gift-ideas-for-teachers You could attach the tags with some cute washi tape, or some fun bakers twine like I did. printable-tags-for-teachers Tissue-gift-idea-for-teachers And there you have it. A great gift idea that’s sure to help your teachers and the kids stay a bit healthier this school year.

It seems like the summer times brings out all the bug and bad guys in my neighborhood.  There are many neighborly reminders to shut garage doors and leave outdoor lights on at night. Many of  our neighbors have opted to have security systems installed in their homes.  I’ve been reluctant mainly because of the contract and monthly fees. So once I heard of Novi, I had to share.

 

 

A security system that sends photos and alerts to your phone (no contracts, no monthly fees, inexpensive, and portable)! We are working with this awesome Kickstarter project and want to get the word out! If you want to feel safe and secure go visit the site.  They have done a lot of homework to get this product to be the perfect solution for any home, apartment or business.  I know I’m excited to get these installed in my home!
