Tip of the day Keeping Bugs Out Of Your Food Pantry

Bay leaves are cost effective all natural way of repelling bugs from the areas that you store your food.

You can place bay leaves on the shelves or add them inside food grade five gallon buckets with tight fitting lids that you store rice, flour, bean or pasta. ( 2 bay leaves per buckets )( 10 – 18 bay leaves spread among your shelves )

Check the outside of your food grade buckets for damage before each use or monthly for any signs of rodents trying to gnaw through the plastic.

Why ?

All flour has Weevils larvae in it that can not be see by the naked eye until they hatch but you can kill them with extreme cold. Bay leaves do not repel weevils – only freezing kills them.

Hang It Up

Revive old drawer pulls as wall-mount organizers. Use the pulls to hold keys, glasses, and notes attached with curtain clips.


Hang Floating Shelves

Static walls can get boring -- fast. For a fresh look that offers flexibility, install floating shelves. They offer lots of pluses: They can be staggered or aligned, various lengths may be combined, and the objects on the shelves can be rotated as seasons or tastes change. Most premade shelves come with installation directions, but if not, the shelves should be attached securely to a wall stud or using a wall anchor. Measure both height and width to ensure you have room for the shelves as well as the items you want to display.


Install Trim Around Shelves

Wood trim takes more DIY time and a few tools, but it gives the presence and architectural heft to a room. Use crown molding where wall meets ceiling, or lower it a few inches in very tall spaces to make the room feel more intimate. Trim and molding may also be used to accent other elements in a room, such as shelving. Crown molding can be painted or stained ahead of time or installed unfinished. It looks absolutely stunning.
