I am done with most of the hard stuff right now. The old house is sold, although we still have to take care of the paper work and such before it is closed on. The new house is finished. In fact it is finished up on the top floor, but the basement is not really started yet. It is all one big room with a concrete floor. The kids took their skates when we went over there last weekend and rolled around playing roller derby. I still need to find a security system, something like what they have at www.home-security.co is what I am going to be looking for, or at least I want something in that price range. Continue reading
When I opened a small cafe, I didn’t do it with a specific theme in mind, but that is what happened. It ended up with a very retro feel because of the styles of furniture and dinnerware I had chosen. The only thing missing was wall decor, and I was stumped on what to do for that. I looked at quite a few magazines and catalogs, but it wasn’t until my brother made a comment that I knew what to do. He said I should get some wall stickers until I figured out what I wanted to do, just to keep the walls from looking so bare.
When he told me that, I thought it would be really cool to get some stickers of famous celebrities from past eras. Since the entire cafe has such a retro feel already, I knew that a walk down memory lane via the wall stickers would be perfect. I looked online and found a company that offers thousands of different stickers at great prices.
I want to buy a storage bed to put in my bedroom at some point in the near future. I am looking for king sized storage beds in particular, because I have a king sized bed in my room at this point in time, and it is getting a bit old, and I want to replace it with a new bed. The reason that I want a storage bed is that I do not have a whole lot of room in my house, and it would be very nice to figure out a way to get more storage in my house without actually taking up more room. As it turns out, a storage bed seems like the perfect way to accomplish this goal, and that is why I am looking for deals on them on the internet at this point in time.
I want to make sure that I find a bed that has a lot of storage drawers and can hold quite a bit of stuff. I am most likely going to use the storage contained within the bed to put clothes in, but I am not exactly sure. I need to make sure that I am able to get a king sized bed, because me and my wife have become quite accustomed to sleeping on a bed of that size, and I do not think that a smaller bed would work out at all. We have been sleeping on a king sized bed for probably 15 years now, and I do not think either of us want to change that. I really do not want to spend too much money on this bed though, because I do not have a whole lot of extra money at this point in time. With any luck I will be able to find one that is one sale.
My wife has received an offer that she can not really refuse from her company. It is a big promotion with a really big pay raise and a transfer from down here in the company headquarters in Charlotte, NC to a new facility in Terre Haute, Indiana. I am wondering how this will effect me, because I am going to have to leave all of my suppliers and my customers if we do this. I am a craftsman who specializes in high end woodworking jobs. I can do a lot of different things, but I usually only do those which interest me. I tell the customers that I am good enough at what I do to be a snob about it. Continue reading
Wood is often overlooked in modern and contemporary home designs. However, there is a reason it has been used to manufacture furniture for centuries! This article will prove to you that wood furnishings and accessories still look amazing in any home.
Wood lasts a really long time if you take good care of it. There is a reason why our forefathers have opted for solid wood furniture as opposed to the compressed wood/laminate pieces available today. When you are looking to purchase a dining table, wood is able to handle years of abuse and use. The laminated or faux wood dining tables are hard to care for, don’t look as good and often cost about the same as a solid wood piece of furniture.
It can easily be pointed out that wood looks good paired with any style. If you love a more natural feel to your home, wood can help you get in touch with nature. Continue reading
