1. Fix small holes around your living space
Instead of patching a hole using caulk or drywall compound, you can use “Erase-A-Hole”. Their motto – “Just Swipe, Wipe and Paint” sounds simple, and it is! When you see a small hole, possibly caused by a nail in the wall or an accident, all you have to do is buy this product at Menards, Ace Hardware stores or online for $10. Once you receive it, you place a small amount of the substance on it’s applicator brush and wipe it over the hole until its completely covered. You will notice that the product is an off-white color so you must make sure that you have paint at home that matches your wall color. Once you have applied the substance over the hole, wipe the area down with the cap. You can paint over it immediately after application.
2. Easily move heavy furniture
Use furniture sliders! Furniture sliders come in various shapes and sizes depending on the type of furniture you are moving and can be sold in any hardware or home improvement (think Home Depot) store as well as online. You can find some household items to do the trick if you are in a bind (eg. socks) but these are not as efficient as store-bought furniture sliders and may end up scratching your floors. You will need two people to insert the sliders underneath the furniture as one person will need to tilt the item and the other will need to place the item underneath.
3. Fabric Drawers
I love these! You can place them in an old shelf organizer and instantly add practicality and color as well declutter your space. Fabric drawers come in different shapes and sizes to fit seamlessly into your shelf organizers. You can slide them into all the shelves in your organizers or pick and choose shelves to add a fabric drawer to for a more unique look. Fabric shelves can come with a flap to cover the top (these are sometime called a fabric storage boxes) and with subdivisions on the inside to store things like socks, hair accessories, teddy bears, etc. Make sure to measure the size of each shelf in order to ensure that your fabric drawer will be the perfect match to your living space!
