This project will take you NO time at all and is inexpensive! Dress up a doorway with any shower curtain you can get on the market!
What you need:
Metal (or wood) Dowel Rod
2-3 Screw Hooks (?)
1 Dollar Store (or any) shower curtain with button holes for shower curtain hooks
How to do it:
Measure your doorway and pick the appropriate size dowel rod for it.
Hold dowel rod over doorway and center – placing dowel approximately 3″ above the door frame.
Mark 2 inches in from either end – this is where you will place your screw hooks.
Screw hooks into wall with the loop facing up towards ceiling to cup the dowel rod.
Run the dowel rod through the shower curtain button holes (where you’d usually put hooks)
Hang curtain by placing the dowel rod in the hooks. Voila!
You can get creative and make a tieback with ribbon, string, rope etc by putting nails or tacks in the wall to hold back, or purchase curtain tiebacks from Lowes, etc if you want to spend a few extra dollars. Have fun with it!

Ok, stop looking at the title of this blog entry like we’ve gone and lost our minds…I assure you, we haven’t (yet haha) so please, read on! 🙂
Want to fill your room with the sound of music from your iPhone, iPod, MP3 player, etc but don’t want to spend an arm and a leg on a speaker system or dock? Well have we got a solution for you! After experimenting with many different types of cups, glasses, and so forth – a fantastic discovery has been made! Putting your device into an empty, clean coffee mug gives you the BEST and LOUDEST sound quality out of all the different ones we tested!
The original idea came from Pinterest of course! A coffee mug seems to do an even better job at amplifying the sound than an ordinary glass or cylindrical container. Try it for yourself and let us know what you find works best for you! 😉
Please make sure your glass is clean, dry, and empty before adding your device.
My laundry room has 1 plug, besides the one for the washer/dryer. So, putting a night light in the room to help with the extreme darkness is not easy. So, I have a solution that allows me to use my mason jars (which I love) and a touch of creativity!
You do not have to secure the mason jar to the cabinet as I have shown below, but it sure is nice when you don’t have a safe or solid place to sit it! Space saving – badabing!
Simply use a screw with a sharp point – and gently, but with some oomph – start the screw through the top of the lid with it ON the jar. Once you start the hole, remove the screw and the lid and reverse the process so the screw is pointed UP out of the lid.
Now, secure the lid to the underside of the cabinet till tight. Add an LED or other battery operated item to the jar (NO FLAMES) and screw into place – holding onto the lid that’s attached to the cabinet is a good idea otherwise it tends to spin. And voila! A hanging nightlight!
