    Hide

    Here's an easy way to protect the other burners on your stovetop when frying or sauteing.

    Place a rimmed baking sheet upside down over nearby burners to shield them from splatters, which are often hard to clean up. Then simply wash the sheet.

  4. Furniture Footprints

    Hide

    Before you spend an afternoon rearranging the furniture (or invest in a new set), do a trial run with a set of paper templates -- no heavy lifting required. Measure dimensions of each piece, then transfer them onto kraft paper. Cut out the templates, label them, then lay them on the floor in the intended spots. If you feel like leaving the templates for a few days (to ensure that the new arrangement flows well and is practical), stick them in place with safe-release painter's tape.

  5. Pots of All Stripes

    Hide

    Here's an easy way to give new life to old terra-cotta pots you have around the shed: Paint them to create coordinating stripes. Using masking tape in various widths, mark a simple striped design on the pot. In a well-ventilated area, spray the exterior and the rim (and any accompanying saucers) with weatherproof spray paint; let dry completely. Peel off tape.
