Save Your Outdoor Wood Surfaces with @ThompsonsWSeal {#giveaway}

This post is part of Endless Summer at Artsy Chaos, happening only during September!

Wouldn't we all like to keep our outdoor wood surfaces in summer ready appearances all year round?  Certainly!  I mean, unless you're a fan of the old, faded, peeling grey look in your decks and wood fences.  We want people to drive by, stop by and walk by with a "wow" on their face at our gorgeous outdoor wood.  Who wouldn't? Ok, we're not that vain but we really do want to protect our wood and make it look great at the same time.




This is where Thompson's WaterSeal enters the picture to provide homeowners with "deck protection" from water damage.  We certainly don't want water damage.  We want Thompson's WaterSeal. And since Thompson's has been protecting the world's treasures since 1929, like the Parthenon, they certainly are trusted with our outdoor wood fixtures. Lucky for us, Thompson's let us try out their Oxy Foaming Action Exterior Multi-Surface Cleaner and Waterproofer in Sheer Natural Cedar.


**Please click 'read more' if you're reading from the main page to continue reading and enter the giveaway!



Our yard has a mixture of fence with one large section of wood which has never been protected. We chose to use the waterproofer on the wood fence instead of a deck, but the concept/principles are the same. Here are some before pictures:




We were surprised at the thick consistency of the WaterSeal with the tint and the vibrancy of the color. It is such a change from the bare wood we're afraid it might be too bright.  What do you think?  Here are the great after pictures:




We were also thrilled to try the Oxy outdoor cleaner which can be used on a multitude of outdoor surfaces like wood, masonry, concrete, composite, brick, stucco, and outdoor furniture. It works fabulously to clean up and make your outdoor surfaces look almost new! I love that it can be used on outdoor furniture which gets so dirty when it rains. It can even be used on some outdoor fabrics.


Key Features of the Oxy Cleaner:

  • Oxygenated Foaming Action
  • Removes Stains From Dirt, Mildew, Algae and Fungus
  • Non-Bleach, Chlorine-Free Concentrate
  • Gentler* Biodegradable Cleaner
*Compared to a Chlorine Bleach Based Formula.

You can find Thompson's at many retailers nationwide and get valuable information and resources at their website http://www.thompsonswaterseal.com/.  You can also enter here at Artsy Chaos for a case of cleaner and a case of waterproofer (Approx. Retail Value $140!! your choice of color or clear) so you, too, can have summery outdoor wood surfaces year-round!! Enter using the Rafflecopter form below.

Sit-upon Tutorial By Rachel Beyer

As a former Girl Scout, I have lots of fun camp memories. I remember learning to tie knots, set up camp and to cook over the campfire. An essential Girl Scout tradition is making a sit-upon. A sit-upon is a homemade waterproof cushion. They are easy to make and I remember using them every time we did any activity while sitting on the bare ground, which most often was damp or scattered with uncomfortable sticks and pebbles. A sit-upon is great for sitting around the campfire, your backyard, or even a sporting event. 
There are lots of ways to make a sit-upon. When I was a Brownie Girl Scout, we made ours from old vinyl tablecloths and foam. But in a pinch, you can use a plastic garbage bag and a stack of old newspapers for padding.
To revisit this simple craft project, I decided to use a roll of vintage vinyl wallpaper I found at a thrift store and some foam I bought at my local craft store.

Boring Cash No More!!

Ahhhh! I just learned how to turn money into a really cool work of art!! Seriously, this is really cute and fun too. Foldin' Money can help you turn plain old cash into a really fun crafty gift! It's kind of like paper crafts with a real monetary value. Ha!

Foldin' Money has design kits to help you make the perfect gift for anyone on your list this year. Both US and Canadian currency directions are included in these design kits. For review, we received the "red" kit which has templates and step-by-step directions for a cake, tree, heart, and tie. We found the instructions to be very, very easy to follow. Ladies, I think even your husbands could fold money into the perfect gift! Did that sound rude? Sorry Fellas!

What we found really fun was the endless ways that you could possibly use the Foldin' Money designs. I thought it would be really fun to put one of those little strands of battery operated lights onto the folded money tree! What a fun gift idea and you …

#Halloween Spaghetti & Eyeballs for Sadie Hawkins {The Daily Chaos 10/14/2011}

This post must be written lightening fast because I must leave soon to pick up my daughter from the high school's Sadie Hawkins dance and ferry her and her date to their next destination. How's that for a long, stressful run-on sentence full of far too many prepositional phrases.


We had the distinct pain honor of hosting the dance dinner for 19 teenagers tonight. I don't know about you but I remember Sadie Hawkins as the dance where the guys always said no. Seriously, teenage boys can cut a teenage girl's confidence to shreds. Oh who am I kidding, grown men still do that. So we had dinner in the backyard complete with Halloween lights and a cauldron full of bubbling homemade root beer. My husband loves the homemade root beer and is always the dry ice master chef of the brew. At one point, he came in from outside all dejected because apparently the ladle had fallen into the cauldron and the kids had been trying to fish it out with their hands.... he didn't feel like …
