Put your new bulb together and connect it up before finally mounting it on the ceiling.
7. Change Your Cabinet Color and Turn it More Attractive
If you plan to paint your kitchen cabinet to give it a new look. Start by deep cleaning the cabinet inside out. This helps remove the dirt and grease accumulated over the years, which is necessary for getting an excellent finish. Once the cabinet is cleaned, sand it to make the surface sufficiently rough for the new paint to stick. Then, tape all parts that contact the cabinet and remove all the hardware that is inside. After that, apply two coats of primer and allow it to dry. Once it is dry, apply the final coat.

Once the floor is free of dirt, Sand it thoroughly until the floor is smooth without being glossy. Then apply one coat of the primer, first along the edges, and then on the rest of the floor. After allowing this to dry, apply a second coat, and let it dry. Once you finish the two coats of primer, apply the final coat of the porch and patio paint.
5. Use Open Shelves for A Natty Farmhouse Facade
Using open shelves can provide a rustic look to the house. If you have a plan to do precisely that, make sure it is purse-friendly and pleasing to the eye.

4. Make your Wall Jazzy With This Magical Spoon Arrangement
I could call it a spoon show. Using several spoons of various sizes, you can produce a new rustic look to your kitchen. First, decide on the required spacing and arrangement. Next, dip the spoons into household paint. Then take the spoons out and allowed them to dry. After the paint had dried to a soft consistency, smooth out the surface with your fingers. Using ribbons, mark out the rows on the wall, according to the design that you already made. All that remained is to fasten the spoons to the wall. You can finish the last job by using small square pieces of command tapes.
3. Brighten Your Walls with Scrabble Tiles
Scrabble tiles can add a distinctive look to the walls, and you can make these tiles yourself from used wooden pallets, which I assume could find without any difficulty. Next, remove the planks from the pallet and cut them into square pieces of the right size. How did you decide the right size? Make them large enough to be noticeable but small enough to stay in the background. Then clean and sand them. Once the tiles are ready, prepare your design on paper. Following this design, paste vinyl decals with the required letters and numbers on to the wooden tiles.
2. Hang Dry Herbs The Right Way
Here’s a way to dry herbs at home. By using this procedure, your kitchen can get a facelift while you get quality dried herbs. To do this, use a 12-inch hoop, wooden beads, s-hooks, and three pieces of macramé cord of 48 inches each.
Wrap all three pieces of cord over the hoop, maintaining equal distance. Then pull the loose ends to the top, attached the beads, and tie them into a knot about 12 inches above.
The hanging herb dryer is ready. To hang the herbs, attach the s-hooks to the hoop, evenly spacing them along its periphery. Then use twine to fasten the herbs to the hoop and let them dry.

Here’s how you could get a brand-new backsplash in your kitchen using pressed tin panels. It cost next to nothing and is ready before the day is out with strong determination. First, measure each area where you decide to fix the panels and cut the sheets accordingly with a utility knife.
