I would rather own a 10,000 mattress that will last 10 years or more that is made in the USA that supports a family here, than 1,000 mattress made in china by child labor that will be kicked to the curb in 5 years or less.

I am in the middle of a Kitchen gut-remodel, and what I have been doing before I go in to give another day of work, is go into my Bathroom, which we gutted and remodeled this past winter, it helps me remember what I am looking forward to in the kitchen, the end result. I get pumped and eager to work.
Good Luck with your bathroom.

I would love to see you add a third paint color to the house to emphasize the details, similar to the way the red does on this house.

We are about to start our 160 sqft Kitchen gut/remodel. We have been pricing out the drywall/insulation, appliances, cabinets and misc. We have a budget of $6,000 and hope to do it in one month.
We are doing everything (except for the tile instillation, plumbing and electrical, thanks to family in the trade) ourselves. We start next weekend.
Fingers Crossed.

Looking at Whippet's comment, I might try the blow dryer on cool to dry it off.

I have had my lamp for 7 years, and so far have only dip cleaned it once. I recommend this for an occasional "deep" cleaning.

I did it once when I lived in Brooklyn. The dust and dirt there is thick and heavy, it couldn't be cleaned off any other way. I had no problems with rust. I had it air dry on a towel. We lived in a loft with 13 windows, so we had good ventilation. I am going to clean it again soon, now that I have a back yard, I am going to let it dry out in the sun hanging from the clothes line.

I take it off the pendant light, and soak it in a bucket of mild soapy water for a few minuets then rinse it under the shower, or in a clean bucket of water.
