Best Quick Tip

How many times have you taken something apart to fix/paint it only to be confused or missing a screw upon reassembling? I learned this easy organizational tip from my Dad after having a reassembly disaster with a crib. Before taking anything apart gather together a piece of cardboard, some masking tape and a small plastic baggie. Use the cardboard for making notes and pierce holes into it to attach your screws. Arrange the screws from top to bottom in the order they were removed, and tape corresponding washers and bolts next to them. Make notes as to the placement and arrangement if needed. When you go to reassemble just start at the bottom with the last screw and work up. Use the baggie to hold odd pieces or Allen wrenches and tape it to the cardboard. You won't miss a step this way and reassembly will be a breeze!
 

About

I started my blog in 2009 as a way to stay connected to the interior design world after having my second child. Since then I have chronicled my DIY successes & failures, many house moves/ renovations and my obsession that anything can be "renovated" with paint. (If the primer sticks, it is getting painted!) I have a background in interior design and decorative painting and was raised by two very ambitious DIY parents that taught me not to fear change. I live by the motto "Do what you love" and I hope to inspire others to think outside the box and design fearlessly.
