How to decorate a house in the middle of a storm
It’s hard to imagine a more perfect time to decorating a house on a rainy day.
But with so much rain coming down in Brisbane, you may need to do a little extra work if you’re looking to save the day and save your wallet.
If you’re wondering what you need to bring, this guide will help you find the right supplies for your budget.
How to save money on your next home-warming adventure: How to save on your home-buying trip: House-walls: There’s a growing number of home-walling materials that can be purchased online.
Cement: You’ll need to get a small piece of cement (about 1mm) to seal off the sides of your house.
Tubs: Tub-rocks or other small watertight containers can be used to seal your home when the wind is blowing and you don’t want it to flood.
Fence: An air-sealed metal fence can be a very useful addition to your home if you need extra protection when the rain is coming down.
House cleaning supplies: Cleaning supplies like cleaning brushes, toothbrushes and toilet paper can be found online, or can be bought in stores.
Waterproof pads: The first step when planning a home-coming is getting yourself some waterproof pads.
Stick a rubber band on the inside of your door and use a damp cloth to wipe the pad away when you leave.
Paint: Get a clear acrylic paint (usually $6-$12 a tube) and stick it on the outside of your home.
It’s important to seal the paint away from the outside so it won’t dry out or chip.
Sealant: Apply a clear sealant to your house, and use the paint to seal it.
If you have to seal away part of the outside, stick a plastic tube on the side of the sealant and apply it to the inside.
What to bring with you: Depending on how you plan to use your house this holiday, you might need to pack a little more than you normally would.
Hair dryers: If your hair dryers aren’t working right, it can be very handy to bring a little water with you.
The best thing about using a hair dryer is that you can control the temperature and even turn them off if you don�t like them working.
Masking: A few products like masking tape, masking glue or tape can be handy to apply to your face if you find your hair falling out.
You can also put on a mask or two and get rid of the dust and dirt that may have gathered on your face while wearing it.
