Space Saving Ideas


It's always a pleasure to look for space saving designs for your shelves, side tables or just anything around the house. Not everyone has the opportunity to own a big house, so it's always a challenge to store and organize your things in every little space you have.  I'm glad that there are loads of ideas you could get online and some of these designs are not so complicated either that you can do it yourself or ask your favorite handyman to do the job for you.  I love that bed side table with a built in lamp, it's very simple and unique and of course, a great space saver if you just have a small bedroom.

I've also seen a design where an old gitar was turned into a wall storage. It's a  crazy idea but I loved it!

Sometimes, we really have to imagine things in order to come up with great ideas for your home.  Be resourceful enough to look around the house and find something that could be reinvented and turned into something very useful instead of just putting it away in the store room or throwing it.  Creativity is the key!

Awesome Shelves

I'm looking for something that I could do to cover the open space of our new bedroom.  I wanted something that's not space consuming and at the same time functional.  I've seen this wall shelves and though that this would be perfect for that purpose.

And for my working area, I think this design could be a good one, it's multi functional and I love those lights attached to the shelves, so nice and elegant! 

Wow, it's not really cheap to introduce home improvement projects, so if we do do that, we need to make sure that we're doing the best options that we have.  I am pretty stressed out every time  I have ongoing construction projects at home, it's messy and sometimes the workers you hire turned out to be so unpredictable.  My only consolation each time is when I see that our projects were completed based on the outcome that we've planned.

Ikea Products That I Love

I've been eyeing to buy some Ikea products through Lazada as I've always hear good thing about Ikea products in terms of quality and durability. As I am trying to update my home decors, there are several Ikea items that I am wanting to buy through Lazada. Here are few of them:

This Ikea Floor Lamp is so cute, elegant and functional.  Would love to have one in my bedroom and in the living room. Perfect if you want to read books or just do anything that requires enough brightness.  This costs Php1,1296 per unit.

This Ikea Shelf Unit is perfect for my living room and outdoor room.  I like the fact that it is narrow and can fit just anywhere.  The red color is also perfect to add accent to your dull areas at home.

I think this Ikea shelf Unit will be good to hold cute potted plants, vases, boos or just anything  even the rme fireface 800 that you are eyeing to have.  This could be a stand out in your living room or bedroom.  Oh and the price is not that bad too, it's just Php1,990 per unit.  Not bad for a great product.

My Favorite Banana Bread

Banana bread, banana loaf, Banana cake...whatever you may want to call it is my favorite baking addiction now a days.  I always have bananas at home as this is the cheapest and most convenient fruit to eat not to mention that bananas are super nutritious.  My idea of baking banana bread came up because of my desire not to throw away overripe bananas.  You see, bananas ripen very fast and if I would not turn into something else, this is indeed a total wastage. 

After my first attempt, I've realized that baking banana bread is so fast and easy and this could also be a great complement for my afternoon coffee.  Great, isn't it?  The thing is you just always have to stock up your pantry with the basic ingredients like flour, butter, sugar, eggs and voila! You will always have freshly baked banana bread all the time.  I love the fact that I could bake my own bread coz I could eat it fresh from the oven and I could control the taste especially the sweetness.

So the next time you shop for fruits, don't foget to buy a bunch of bananas, this is an incredible fruit that could be mixed with cereals, oatmeal, eaten as is it or turned into a banana bread. 

What an awesome treat!

DIY Cellphone Charging Holder

I was browsing the net for danelectro pedals when I saw this this DIY cellphone charging holder.  I think this one is quite easy to do and would not even cost you anything if you know how to sew and recycle fabrics.  I normally charge my cellphone placing it on a piece of table napkin on top of the microwave oven, as there is a nearby outlet.  However, I need to take it out whenever I use the microwave oven.  So, I would say it's not so convenient.  This DIY holder won't require you to use any space where you can place the cellphone, it's right there at the electrical outlet....so cool.

Sometimes, you just need to be creative to come up with an attractive and useful piece.

Vertical Garden Ideas

My love for plants would never cease and I would always be thinking of more creative ideas to adorn my humble abode with plants and lots and lots of plants.  Since I already have lots of ornamental and flowering plants at home now, I am thinking into expanding to vegetable gardening. However, because of limited space, I am now thinking of the possibility of having a vertical garden.  I have lots of ideas in mind and I was so happy to find some inspiration online.  The photos of vertical gardens above are some of my favorites.  I want something bright and bold as this definitely give life to any dull space at home,  Looking at those pictures, you would notice one thing, that DIY vertical gardens are not only easy but fun to do.

Apart from that, just by being creative it does not even require you to spend a lot. Some vertical gardens I've seen made use of recyclable plastic bottles and if you want plastic pots of different sizes, I think there's a lot of options at a local shop or dollar store.

I am very much excited to work on this project and wanted it to be a surprise to my husband and son when they come home for their next work vacation.  I am hoping that I could finish it by then.

Will be posting about this soon.

Looking For Outdoor Garden Set

I am browsing at Lazada and looking for an appropriate outdoor garden set which I could place on our newly upgraded garden area.  I am torn between the 4 seater and 6 seater sets.  I guess these designs are just right for my front garden.

This 4 seater is really cute considering that it's color matches the exterior paint of our house.  I love it's playful design and the space saving feature.

This 6 seater looks elegant with it's white and black color combination. I also like this design as it could accommodate more people with almost the same space.

The material for both sets is glass fiber and I think both are washable with soap and water.  I am really after the practical side of keeping the furniture in good shape and appearance even after long use.  I've already learned my lesson from the past furniture that I bought.  They look good when new but the appearance easily deteriorates over time because it cannot be cleaned and maintained.

I think these designs will also be good for business like restaurants and even on small parties.  This suddenly reminds me of getting a good on stage PA which we could use for our events styling business.  I hope all my projects will materialize soon.  It's not easy to do everything at once but I am sure, I will get there...
