  • Is it normal to have sort of old furniture in the house?

    Best answer: My parent's bedroom set has not been changed since 1967 when they got married. Is it normal to have old furniture? As long as you are still happy with it and it's not worn out or become outdated, I'd say why not? Do you really want to spend $1,000 or more every 2-3 years to get a new sofa? You... show more

    You replace furniture when the item has become used or damaged. You replace it if you are redecorating and that old stuff no longer matches the interior design you want. But you don't change furniture like you change your socks. It's designed to last longer.

My uncle had ripped his chain link fence down and gave it to me, but I'm getting word that the city requires wood panel fencing, and it can't be chain link (even though my neighbors and multiple other people have chain link.) is there any way around this at all, otherwise I'm going to have to drop a grand on a fence, which would really suck considering I have one in good shape for free. I plan on calling the building inspector when the office opens this morning, but figured I'd get other opinions first. Thanks in advance.

So basically my room is really big and has 2 lockers at either side of the room ( they are really far apart so would look silly if I moved my bed between them as I wouldn't be able to reach them in my room) there is a radiator in the middle to seperate them so again I wouldn't be able to put my bed infront of that because it would trap heat. Please help me how I can do up my room like there is no space along the wall available for it

  • What colour headboard would match with a white bedroom ? Carpet will be grey and also thinking of a marble wall behind the bed.?

    Best answer: Grey headboard and then dress up the bed with colored linens or pillows for a punch of color. You could use another color, but it would limit your color choices in bedding. I like grey for a background because it's soothing and you can put any color with it. Stay with silver for your decorations.

    I am fairly new to the vintage/antique world, and interested in learning more about things from the past and collect them. I often go to thrift stores like Goodwill,Salvation Army etc.. I know often they have a few vintage/antique stuff but how do I truly know they're vintage. I don't see vintage as just being old. Old can be ten years ago, and that isn't truly vintage. Old can even look old without being vintage or antique. I know many items have logos,trademarks and are easier to look up and study on. But, as for those that don't have anything how or what would be the best way to research the item. It requires a lot of studying, there's people who can see an item and automatically know if it's vintage or not which is what I want to learn and will be researching. How do you identify vintage/antique items, what do you look for?

  • How can I tell where the wall studs are in a mobile home without a stud finder?

    I want to hang a heavy piece of artwork above my bed, and would prefer it not to fall on top of me while I am sleeping. The walls have small pieces of trim every 4 feet, where the wallboard meets. Would there be studs behind these pieces of trim, at the edges of the wallboard? Thanks,

  • Will Queen sheets fit on a Twin XL bed?

    Best answer: The Queen sheets will be too wide and won't fit properly. Any "fitted" sheet you try to use will be too loose and will pull out from under the mattress as you toss and turn in the bed. The regular sheet will be so wide that you'll have so much extra hanging off the sides, or you'll have to... show more
    Best answer: The Queen sheets will be too wide and won't fit properly. Any "fitted" sheet you try to use will be too loose and will pull out from under the mattress as you toss and turn in the bed. The regular sheet will be so wide that you'll have so much extra hanging off the sides, or you'll have to fold it over as if you have two sheets on the bed instead of one. You can certainly try it to see what you think because it definitely won't be too short or too narrow.

    If all you have or all you can find is Queen size sheets, you could go find the nearest seamstress or use a sewing machine, and go ahead and cut the sheets down to size. Just giving you some options.

    Best answer: White Furniture with Color from your bedding and decor, if you are female.

    Dark furniture with White and Color from your bedding and decor, if you are male.

    If you want your mirror to match your furniture, paint it the same color. If there's no way it could match your furniture (in style), then paint it an accent color.

    That said, don't worry about being matchy-matchy with your colors, because this is your room and it should reflect you and be a place of comfort.
