Blinds can be just as eye-catching as curtains, and are practical and durable. The style and material chosen depends on a number of factors: you may want your blinds to block out light or to keep heat in. Or you may be looking for blinds to provide a backdrop.
Dust pillows & curtains by tossing in your dryer and set on cool or air dry. Throw in a fabric softener sheet to help freshen them up.
Never slide or drag furniture along the floor. The vibration can loosen or break joints, chip feet, break legs, etc., to say nothing of what dragging does to the carpeting or finish on the floor. Whenever possible, use trolleys or dollies for transporting heavy pieces.
If you are trying to repair furniture yourself, don’t use nails, screws, nail guns, duct tape, twine, metal brackets, coat hangers or other creative fast-fixes. They make the job that much harder when you do decide to get the piece mended professionally.
