Change Your Space, Change Your Outlook: 10 Ways to Be Happier at Home
7/22/14 08:02 PM

Yes! We found our forever dream house on 3 wooded acres within 30 minutes of downtown. It was a replica
of a circa 1700 house in New England. They lived in the basement for four years while they laid wide board pine floors, put in a walkin 8 foot cooking fireplace with crane, and there were beamed ceilings in all of the
main floor. Both of the two larger bedrooms had two walk in closets. The views were incredible. I thanked God every day we lived there. But 12 years ago my husbands mom lost her vision and was clearly headed for
a depression. We sold the house and moved East to be there for her. She lived for 10 more years, and we are
living in the starter home that is what we can afford in this area. I so wish we had kept it and rented it.

It not only had a beautiful wood grain as many posters have noted, it also had wonderful patina. And once
patina is gone it can never be restored. Shabby chic is a trend that is getting old and this piece was ruined.

For reseasoning, you need to bake it in a low temperature for an hour or so. After using it, never use dish soap, exactly as Frankooo says. I having been cooking in cast iron for over 40 years.

I painted one and a half rooms in what I thought was a nice taupe, until it stood back and realized that in my
sunny house it really looked orange. Since then I've been using large swatches! But last time I painted a large swatch and loved it, as did my BF and decorating friend. But before doing the whole room put up one of our
favorite heirloom art pieces, and it looked awful! Lesson learned is to check your art in a room before committing to paint.

I am sorry to agree with previous posters about the scale of your furniture. It just makes your rooms look crowded and uncomfortable. Here are some specifics: the couch needing to go through the arch, that overstuffed chairing your living room, your bedside table, and the table between the arches. There are plenty
of posts on here and HOUZZ that give specifics for appropriate scale furniture.

I live in Baltimore, and Best Upholstery retied all the springs in my craigslist sofa for 895, with pickup and delivery. It didn't need new fabric.

We have lived here for 11 years, and are the second owners of our 1952 Cape. Before moving in we reroofed,
ripped up the awful pink shag carpet, had a new kitchen floor put in, and beams in the ceilings of the kitchen.
Also ripped out cheap wood paneling and the 3 layers of wallpaper under it. All of the rooms were pink, blue
and a dingy cream. We sheet rocked over the stained acoustical tile ceilings and painted every room. There have been many updates since, but we bought this house for the location, yard, and because I saw potential.
It was during the bubble and it had had 150 showings and no offers!
