The Christmas decorating begins.
I love to come home to a lit up house. It's so welcoming. I couldn't wait to get the candles in the windows....
but the windows were not ready for the candles. My windows had about 6 years of grime on them. I'm embarrassed.
I washed my windows inside and out......just the front side of the house. (all day)
I remove the screens in the winter time so the sun comes nice and bright through the windows.
This also makes the windows look brighter from the curb. This is a great tip if your home is going on the market. It's a good way to boost curb appeal.
A Kitchen Island is the center for gathering in a living space. If your kitchen is all matching cabinets with a center island - here's an easy way to update that heavily used space and give it some old world charm.
