What a List: Reasons to Remodel
The project may be the lion, but the list is your whip - Adam Savage
Lists make everything easier. Even grocery shopping becomes a gentle breeze when you have everything planned out and jotted down before you take the trip. Lists also take up a lot of free time, giving you a mental boost when you’re bored out of your skull. Of all the things a list can do, it can get you organized and keep you serious, and that’s what we’re all about at LindenCraft.
Restoration and Upcycling for Decoration
Ah! There’s nothing like the smell of a yard sale! Well, maybe once you’ve cleaned and repurposed your finds. Upcycling old furniture, art, tools, and every household items gives you an amazing arsenal to use as decoration! For creative people everywhere old abandoned windows and unhinged doors are like blank canvasses. Thrift stores and yard sales are a DIYer’s best friend. The amount of potential they exert is nothing short of endless.
Creating a Personal Safe Space

Keeping a space specifically for cooling down can help negate those negative feelings.

They need materials that are solid, items that are put together sturdily, and potential for longevity. A cheap, terribly applied counter will only last through so many chopped onions before the whole thing collapses.
What’s worse than having two spectacular choices in a one choice situation?
Of course, there are tons of far worse things, but let’s pretend this is a fairy-tale world. In this world, the only problem is the choice between your favorite brand’s clawfoot tub and a clawfoot made by some other brand. Though they’re both the picture of design, quality, and style, you’re already sold on the familiar brand’s clawfoot. You’ve spent months imagining this clawfoot in your head, detailing it with matching tile and accents. While the other brand whispers in your ear, the familiar one screams from mountains just for you. There’s only one problem:
We’ve got some news for you, Ottawa.
