CONSTRUCT A TIME OUT CHAIR
No child likes being in time out. (Moms, however …) But with a special time out chair like this one, the experience might be more tolerable. You can even send daddy to the chair instead of to the dog house when he’s in trouble! Check out the full tutorial from Apartment Therapy.
HANG A MAGNETIC MAKEUP BOARD
Instead of keeping all your makeup products in several different cosmetics bags, or sprawled across a drawer in your bathroom, stick them all up on a magnet board made from a picture frame. This gives you easy access to exactly what you need, saving you time in the morning. Learn how to put this together from Laura Thoughts.
