As seen on The Yesstylist, you can now learn to make a "boot shaper" to keep your cold- season-shoes from getting wrinkles during the warmer seasons of the year. By doing this, you could also save space in your closet rathe than having a pile of shoe boxes accumulating around! It is as easy and affordable as it looks! Simply gather the materials on the bottom image (or something similar), and aim to follow the steps mentioned on The Yesstylist's website. All you have to loose is a couple dollars and a few minutes of your time... But consider what's to gain: more space, and being able to preserve your favorite shoes longer!

Choosing tricky colors such as purple for your kitchen cabinets

Posted on April 12, 2013 at 9:10 AM Comments comments (0)

Recently, two different people that I know wanted to use purple in their kitchen renovation project. Any color properly handled can be fantastic. However, in the case of one of these two people I mentioned earlier, she chose a bright purple color for the cabinets and the result was to say it in a polite way unsatisfactory. When using purple shades my advice is go with darker hues like eggplant. The following link shows a variety of shades that can serve the lovers of that hue.
