i'd check to see that they're not treated cedar or that they'd leach chemicals. a lot of chips are "rot resistant" so they might not break down as quickly...?


Composting Tip: Keeping the Carbon/Nitrogen Balance

last summer i picked up a HUGE bag of peat moss for about $5. sprinkled it between fresh layers of scraps and a little bit whenever i turned the pile. i had the most beautiful compost in just a few months. it also helped hold a lot of moisture without anything getting too... icky.

Maybe add: If you DO have splatter or drips underneath your paper or tape, you can take a razor to the mirror and scrape it off?

i really like this transformation!

i think it might be even more graphically interesting to hang a bright red frame on the canvas area (from wires at the ceiling?) to bring a pop of color to break up the pattern. i feel just a little dizzy looking at it.

i'm really looking forward to this project. i'm not necessarily in the market for a new bed (dollar-wise), but my back sure is.

does anyone else have a refrigerator that sweats in the summer? would this even work during hot and humid months?

i got a bag of peat moss for $6 at a garden center. i add a few scoops every time i turn my compost. it's rich in carbon, which will offset all of the green matter you're putting in! works like a charm!

i have 3 different kinds of cabin-esque wood paneling and four different ceiling treatments (most are drop ceiling tiles, but ALL different styles) in an 800 sq ft space. most days i just dismiss it, but when i think too hard it kind of drives me crazy!

the first pic reminds me of an early 90s kids play-place complex. DZ Discovery Zone, anyone?

can you use applesauce? i know that it's often a sub for butter in many recipes, but it definitely has sweetening properties. i added a bit to my last rhubarb/strawberry crumble to make up for both a bit of sugar and butter and it was delish.
