John Louis Home Standard Closet Shelving System Review

John Louis Home Standard Closet Shelving System Review

John Louis Standard Closet Organizer SystemMy older daughter is a high school senior, and therefore, my husband and I are helping her choose a college. In the process of getting her ready for college, we have realized that we have a house full of items that we no longer need, and not only that, but we are supremely disorganized.

Our house is so disorganized, that I have decided to systematically go through every closet, shelf, and cupboard and reorganize them. We are just doing a little at a time, but have already donated a lot of children's clothing and games to Goodwill.  Hopefully, they will go to people who will really use them.

Our closets are a big problem. They are stuffed with old clothes, purses, hats, and outdoor wear that is so hard to find that we have forgotten that we own some of it. So I have been looking into some closet organizing systems.

One of the best that I have seen so far is the John Louis Home Standard Closet Shelving System which is sold on Amazon.  Now I will tell you right off that this is a very nice closet organizing system, so it is a bit pricey, but if you wait for a sale, either on Amazon or on another great site, ClosetOrganizerSource, you can get a really good deal.  ClosetOrganizerSource sells only closet organizer systems, and they have a very wide range in price and styles of what is available both in the John Louis Closet Shelving System and other brands.

Because we live in an older home, we need to always make allowances for odd shaped rooms, and that includes closets.  One of the things that I really love about the John Louis Home Standard Closet Shelving System is that the system really has a lot of options, add ons, and configurations that will fit in our odd shaped closet spaces.  Some of our closets are narrow and deep, while others are shallow and long.  It makes it easy to lose our lesser used clothing inside these closets.  We even have one closet that has an opening to the attic, so we always have to be able to get to that door in the wall of the closet.

I am an artist so how things look always affects how I feel about them.  This closet organizer and shelving system is really beautiful.  I like the mahogany color the best, and it looks really good in a closet which is usually just painted white.  It also makes everything in the closet look better to have them hanging and shelved on a wood setting instead of just being piled up on wire racks.  The wood finish and hardware appeals to both men and women, so you don't have to worry about your spouse not liking it.

The John Louis Home Standard Closet Shelving System is meant to be very customizable so it will fit into most closet spaces that you will have.  Even in an older home like mine, it works very well.  Newer homes seem to have more regular shaped rooms, not really sure why that is.

For any do it yourselfer, this closet organizer is a snap to put together.  If you have a friend to help you, it is even easier.  You just need some basic tools like a power drill, hammer, and hand saw, and you will be able to assemble it like a dream.  The instructions that come with the John Louis Home Standard Closet Shelving System are superb, but you will have to assemble it, and configure it to fit your closet space, and anchor it to the walls.  Once this is done, it will hold a lot of weight, and various sized items.

Again, if you are a do it yourselfer, and can put it together yourself, you can save a lot of money on building yourself a beautiful home closet.  The cost is very reasonable for what you get, and it will last for a long time.  If you are a member of Amazon Prime, shipping is free, and you can also get free shipping from ClosetOrganizerSource as long as you meet their free shipping criteria.  Paying for shipping is important to consider though because the boxed organizer weighs approximately 65 lbs.

When it comes to assembling the John Louis Home Standard Closet Shelving System, you should allow at least two hours and possibly up to ten hours.  You can modify the system any way you like, including buying optional extra shelves, and some people construct jewelry chests and other modifications out of extra pieces.  Depending on your skill level, it will take longer to assemble, and the more you need to customize it, the longer it will take.

Some important things to note about the John Louis Home Standard Closet Shelving System, and installation:

  • Make sure to measure your closet well before you start.

  • If you have a walk in closet or very large closet, you will need two systems.

  • If you do not have any do it yourself skills or carpentry skills, you will need help setting this up.  It is not for complete newbies.  It takes measuring, making specifically placed holes, sawing, and constructing.

  • You may ding the wood when building but it comes with a wood touch up kit.

  • You will have to make several holes in your walls, but your closet organizer will be very sturdy because of that.

  • Using a level while installing this closet organizer is recommended to make everything line up evenly.

Another great thing about this closet organizer is the company that stands behind it, John Louis.  They have an excellent customer service department, and will replace any bad hardware, and answer questions that you have.

If you are looking for a way to expand your storage space in your closet, the John Louis Home Standard Closet Shelving System, will give you quite a bit of extra storage space due to the shelving, and hanging space that it creates.  This will neaten up your home even more than you expected because you can store things that you didn't have room to put in your closets before.  There is also some room for error with this system because the brackets have some "wiggle" room for adjustment.

When planning a garden, we always have to think about when the various annuals and perennials will bloom, placement of the various flowers and shrubs, and where to place walkways and resting places in a garden. One of the most beautiful pieces that can highlight your garden plan is the placement of a cast iron sundial in a central location.

Cast iron sundials are meant to withstand weather's harshness year round, and can be purchased in many styles and finishes. A sundial for your garden is an investment, because your sundial will last many years bringing pleasure to all who see it.

Bird Bath/Bird Feeder Sundials

An outdoor cast iron sundial can be a combination bird bath or bird feeder as well as a sundial.  Sundials in the traditional sense keep time via the movement of the sun either on a hourly, daily, or monthly basis.

If you want to attract birds to your garden, then a bird bath or bird feeder type of sundial is what you should look for.  Many of the bird bath or bird feeder sundials have animal motifs or plant motifs to blend in more with the garden and have a fantasy appeal.

Animals are often picture or sculpted on sundials especially garden animals, birds, butterflies, turtles, rabbits, and squirrels.

Other Sundial Choices

Sundials can be made of any metal that will not rust, and therefore you can also find sundials made from aluminum, bronze, copper, and brass.  Copper is the most expensive, and therefore less available.  Aluminum is the least durable metal, and more lightweight.  It is cheaper but not the best choice.

If you are going to leave your sundial out all summer or all year, then you need to make sure to find a heavy durable metal sundial meant to be outside all year.  Part of your decision can be based on how the metal oxidizes in the outdoors over time.

Some sundials are painted, but I do not think that painted sundials are a good choice because you will have to continue painting them as the paint wears off.  The metals on their own will develop a beautiful patina in the outdoor garden.

Whimsical Sundials

Sundials can be plain and simple, or they can be whimsical.  The most whimsical have butterflies, and fairy creatures on them, and these are especially suitable if you are creating a fairy garden.  Whimsical sundials appeal to children because it is fun to find the various creatures in the garden.  You can also find matching garden statues to go with your cast iron sundial.

There are also funny sundials or hobbyist sundials.  One of my favorites is the golfer sundial below.  This a favorite of many golfers both men and women, and makes a great gift for Father's Day.

If you are more traditional, the armillary sundial or calendar sundials are a better choice.  Watching the sun move across the sundial is a very peaceful occupation for any garden visitor.

A sundial should be a central point in your garden, so browse the choices available and choose the one that best fits your garden plan, and your budget.

Dragonfly facts

  • Dragonflies are insect who belong to the order Odonata. Experts divide them into three sub-species: the largest true dragonflies called Anisoptera, the smaller damselfly called Zygoptera and Anisozygoptera which seems to be a combination of the first two.
  • They are easily recognisable as having large eyes, small antennae, slim segmented bodies, and 4 thin membranous wing in sets of 2. In dragonflies the rear pair of wings become broader at the base. Damselfly wings are all the same size.
  • Dragonfly eyes are set together close to the top of the head and they can see all around them. Damselflies eyes are situated slightly more to each side of the head.
  • They can vary in size from around 1 inch to 6 inches in some species.
  • So far something like 5680 different species of dragonfly have been recorded world-wide.
  • Dragonfly eyes are multifaceted. This means they can see in every direction - so they sense even tiny movements - all the better for hunting prey.
  • They eat mosquitos and other pests which makes them a great addition to your garden. Some people such as the Burmese, regularly release dragonfly nymphs into local water to keep down the population of mosquitoes.
  • The twin sets of wings gives the dragonflies the ability to fly in all sort of ways. They can hoover, fly fast or slow, even loop the loop. Their flying ability is one of the reasons they are so much fun to watch.

Using Wall Decals for Christmas Decor – Easy and Cheap

Using Wall Decals for Christmas Decor – Easy and Cheap

Christmas Wall Decal DecorationsIf you are looking for an easy and inexpensive way to decorate for Christmas, especially in a rented or temporary space like an apartment or dorm room, one of the easiest is using Christmas wall decals.

Wall decals have been overtaking the wall decorating market as a substitute for wall paper. They are much less permanent, easy to change out and cheap. You can apply them in minutes, and use them for kids rooms, kitchens, bathrooms and more. However, for Christmas wall decor, they are supreme. While similar to stickers, they don't leave behind sticky residue, and can be taken down almost as quickly as you can put them up. Also, they are very cheap compared to many other decorations.

Here are some great examples of Christmas wall decals that you can use, but click through for many more examples:

Greenworks 27012 10-Inch 8 Amp Electric Cultivator/Tiller Rototiller

Greenworks 27012 10-Inch 8 Amp Electric Cultivator/Tiller Rototiller

Have you been searching for a quality rototiller, that has plenty of power and an affordable price? Finding the right unit can be a challenge, as there are many options on the market today, and not all of them are well-made! In addition, if you prefer to save the environment by going electric, then your available choices dwindle even further. Luckily, the Greenworks 27012 10-Inch 8 Amp Electric Cultivator/Tiller is an excellent solution, as it has a variety of different benefits and features to commend it to you.

First of all, it doesn't produce any harmful emissions, unlike gas tillers which contribute to pollution. This also means you won't be breathing in fumes while working in your garden, which is a nice added bonus! In addition, you won't have the hassle of buying fuel or refilling the tank in the middle of your project. Further, getting tune-ups will be a thing of the past, as you won't have all of the same scheduled maintenance to worry about. Essentially, if you've been looking for a rototiller that is stress free and good for the environment, then the Greenworks 27012 Rototiller is the machine for you.

Yet, you may worry about its power capabilities, and if it can tackle your gardening jobs. Many owners of this product are pleasantly surprised to find that its power surpasses that of their old gas-powered rototiller. In fact, it has been known to churn up large rocks, break through sizable dirt clumps with ease, rip through medium-sized roots and even take on hardened clay soil.

Greenworks RototillerThe Greenworks 27012 Rototiller features 4 tines that chew up the dirt, which you can remove for easy cleaning. Also, you can adjust the tilling width depending upon your needs, to either 6.25 or 10 inches. You'll likely enjoy the cord lock as well, which keeps the electrical cord in place during use. Some customers have commented that this isn't as reliable as they would like, but this is easily fixed with a zip-tie. Finally, the depth of your till is fully adjustable, allowing you to select how far down in the soil you'd like to go.

For the best results the manufacturer suggests that you remove any grass and weeds on the surface, and break up the top soil with a shovel. The Greenworks 27012 Rototiller will handle the job from there, allowing you to plant in freshly tilled soil! Also, with its compact size it is perfect for confined gardening spaces, as it has a smaller turning radius than bigger models.

This rototiller also comes with a 4 year warranty, which is twice the industry standard. Greenworks truly stands behind the quality of their manufacturing, and you can expect your tiller to last for many seasons to come. People also love how a design which is more compact and weighs less than bigger units, can deliver the same level of power. This is perfect if you've been having trouble handling a larger machine, or the effort of using a heavier rototiller is becoming a problem.

All in all, the Greenworks 27012 10-Inch 8 Amp Electric Cultivator/Tiller is an excellent value, giving you the most for your money. If you have a small to medium-sized garden and you'd like to lower your carbon footprint, then this is an excellent choice. You'll no longer have to deal with the problems associated with gas-powered units, yet you'll still enjoy the power and performance that the 27012 delivers.
