Recently, we met this guy who had a sister who just moved into her new custom home in Southern California. She furnished her home with appliances and furniture from the East Coat. When it came to paying for all her home furnishings, she realized that it was way way cheaper to buy online than locally. And, she got everything that she wanted. Something to think about!
I wouldn't mind having a hatstand in my home, but the very few hats that I have are caps used for fishing or gardening. I had a friend who worked retail and bought nothing but hats with the money made from her job. No hatstand. She displayed all of her hats on wig stands, but each of those hats were in top condition.
Thank you, Simone! I'm sure everyone has better things to do with their money these days than paying the high prices for furniture repair or completely going out and buying a new replacement. One day, I will cart the couch down the street to the upholstery shop. Until then, I'll play "hide the gaping hole in the middle of the couch."
I find it much easier to cover quits and comforters with covers too because my boys tends to dirty anything on the bed so fast, its not even funny! I'd much rather be washing the covers than the entire comforter. Plus I tend to use my thick old bed-covers that get used in summers as covers by having the tailor stitch them into covers. It gives you the added option of two totally different looks when you flip them on either side and makes good recycling sense.
Hi Guys, I love the retro look, so I did a piece on iconic furniture, minimalistic home furnishings and the Barcelona (Chaise) Lounge. Sure learned a lot ) It's called "Iconic Furniture and the Barcelona Chair".
Thanks, Denise The marshmallow couch was at the Atomium, a space age-like structure (looks like an Atom) built for the 1952?? world's fair in Brussels. You can climb inside it, there is a restaurant and "super cool and speedy" elevator. Unfortunately, I missed it when visiting there in January.
My hub contribution took a bit of a different path. Not exactly furnishings, (what can you add to a bathroom except a new toilet seat) but the importance of aesthetic appeal in the bathroom. Here are some storage and decorating tips:
You'd be surprised what you can add to a bathroom. Mine has a small gold and brown speckled marble sink counter. I bought and refinished a wooden switchplate and matching cupboard knobs and it looked really cool.
I just published my hub for the weekly topic. I wrote about the easy way to give your furniture the shabby/distressed look: for dummies!! It's my first real home furnishing project that I've actually changed the look of something. I'm thrilled!
