DIY Headboard of Pine
I saw some videos and really couldn’t pick which one to do. But when I thought about effort and pricing, it came to this. Easy and cheap way to decorate your bedroom.
Pine headboard with shelf.
Supplies and sizes for Queen Bed:
Queen size bed is 60″ width, I made my headboard 66″. 3″ extra width on each side of the bed for style (see past the bulky blankets)
HOWEVER: most standard project pine wood planks are 60″ so this could save you a f...
This weekend, I set off on an adventure to visit a friend living on a commune, or a community interest farm. Together, with local mutual interested friends, they generate, restore and replenish the farm and provide sustainable options of produce without the use of pesticides.
Most people would find their type of living “below standard” but what I saw that they had that no one else had was a sense of community, mutual cooperation and respect not only for each othe...
Recently a friend sent me a post of how to grow your own food from scraps. So I decided to give it a go. I was shocked how fast life started to happen just from a few days of sitting in water.
Great foods to buy and regrow at home in just some water to create cheap food:
Parsley roots – cut about 1 inch below the stemBok Choy – cut 2 inches above the base
Garlic – Allow to sprout on its own or place in water and sunlight when roots appear you can plant in soil.
A great share from a friend if you are looking for an A frame build in the forest. Some beautiful examples.
A frame homes
- 1 cup baking soda
- 3/4 cup corn starch
- 1/4 cup epsom salt
- 1 cup citric acid (aka Lemon Salt) – find this at bulk barn

- a few drops of essential oil
- spray bottle for spraying food coloring
- shape molds
1) Stir all the dry ingredients together.
2) Combine food coloring and spray with some water, not too much it will fizz.
3) Add essential oil if you like.

The latest documentary to watch on Netflix, this film takes you through all the countries in the world in their day of 10.10.10 (October 10th, 201o) from beginning to end.
Each person gains their own insight into the world we live in, every culture, every family, every life form. My gain; a sense of community and awareness is key to happiness.
What started as a very somber night, ended profound looking truly at the choices I hav...
In Canada, unlike our close neighbours, we don’t have a right to personal handgun firearms. Licenses are available for hunting refiles and shot guns, however hand guns are a no no. I am not to condone the use of firearms for anything other then hunting. But today, for my birthday, I had the opportunity to go to the gun range to try out an selection of standard firearms.
I think what scared me the most was that I might actually like it...
Not enough can be said about the ingredients in the foods, cosmetics and products we use on a daily basis. We place blind trust in the corporations. We trusted them to test products on short, long term and environmental and physical impacts for human use and consumption. We are missing the fact they are out to make money, and that cutting corners increases profit. Lets make sure they raise their standards, it’s our vote as a consumer.
