Lilacs are one of the first flowering bushes in our area and I enjoy gathering Lilacs to make arrangements to place in the rooms of our home. I also love the way they fill the house with their delightful scent. They never last long but with a few simple tips I have learned I how I can keep fresh cut Lilac branches in our home.

Rustic Black Painted Hardwood Floors

We recently put hardwood floors in our manufactured home and after doing so, I never felt like the color flowed well with the rest of our home. I have debated for some time lately if I should paint my hardwood floors. Should I paint my hardwood floors white? Should I paint my hardwood floors black? That was the thought that went through my mind a lot as I tried to make a choice. I finally settled on black.
