Esther R's Profile

I have a leather sofa, which I'm replacing after six years with a pet and a spouse that likes to wear pants with metal rivets. Went back and forth quite a bit on microfiber vs tightly woven patterned fabric vs leather. Had to remind myself that before leather, I had the vacuum or adhesive roller out every day. Finally decided on a new vinyl composition from Build-A-Sofa. Looks like leather, buts resist scratches, stains and the stretching (and sagging) that result over time. Vinyl is also less expensive.

Love the idea! I share my bed with a blanket hog and a pet, so have too many nights that are cold and/or result in a spat.

A timely post! I figured this is the easiest way to update our kitchen. Just took down one pair of cheap wood veneer cabinet doors, the ones above the sink. There's now a simple and direct route from dishrack to shelves. We use almost everything often so dust isn't a problem. Different colors of Fiestaware create a fun display, but, yeah, somehow, it's still boring. Tip #3 is key, so we'll see how it goes. If we can get the one set of shelves to look good, the doors are all coming down (except the ones above the stove like matt m said). When we move, we'll put the doors back up. Easy!
