Thrifted Rehab: Water Damaged Picture Recue

This thrifted rehab has been sitting in my To-Do pile for so long that I decided to make it into an episode. The picture had some water damage, so it needed a new back. I tried to put the picture in a new frame, but the frame was too small! Boo! But the original frame is cute, so it's not a total wash. Let me know you have any projects that have been sitting around.

Subscribe on YouTube! I'll show you cool upcycled projects!

New frame (possibly)
Acid free backing board - I used heavy weight drawing boards from the art store
Writing utensil
Cutting tool
Acid free tape

You may need different supplies depending on how much is going on behind your picture once you open it up!

DIY Beauty: Shaving Cream - easy home made beauty

This shaving cream is an easy beauty DIY, it's fun and you can do it right in your kitchen. Bonus: it's super healthy. I've used mine 2 times now, and it makes my legs feel amazing. I do need to soap my pits after using it, because it does feel super slick up in there but after I do it feels so nice.

Castile Soap
Coconut Oil
Almond Oil
Shea Butter
Healing Clay* this is optional
Jars - use upcycled jam jars
Mixer - we are using food safe everything, so mix with what you have
Double boiler - again, we are using food safe items, so use what you have

Full recipe:
1/3 Cup Shea butter
1/3 Cup Coconut oil
2 Tablespoons sweet almond oil
2 Tablespoons Lavender liquid castile soap
1 Teaspoon Healing Clay

Heat the oils in a double boiler until all melted.
Add clay and soap and mix until dissolved.
Cool in fridge for about 20-30 minutes. We ended up cooling it for 30.
Whip it! And once it's frothy add to your little jars.

There are other natural saving creams that I want to try out, are there any beauty DIYs you want me to try? Let me know in the comments

Thank you for watching!
