I've never seen the Mummy Chairs in an actual living space. Very nice.

I'd allow my 15 year old and older. I don't think parents realize many children need a great amount of reassurance when kids are unaccompanied on a plane because they are not there to witness it. Our kids don't necessarily want to readily admit to being scared or nervous and the Attendant will always report that all went fine. Besides, I don't want to risk some strange but seemingly nice person sitting next to my child, I don't want to put my child in a position to have to depend on the kindness of strangers and there are other ways my children can exercise their autonomy.


When Should a Child Travel Alone?

I've seen people use tension rods across the top and bottom of each window. They've made curtains or panels in the fabric of their choice with material wide enough and light enough to control how much pleat and gather they wanted on the rods.

@ Nora. The dimensions of the mirror are 41x17 1/2. I'd make a template out of paper first and tape it on the wall where you would want it first just to make sure. Those mirrors are beautiful!.

Painted or stained, I swear I got flashbacks of watching a teacher grading a test on that pull out writing surface.

Lesli, nice job for your daughter room and very nice colors for her room. The only opinions of importance are your daughter/s and her cat!

They look great but I'd be afraid the paint would start to chip off and ruin the shoulders of my clothes. Another option might be to dip wooden hangers in fabric dye to get a wash of color. Of course they'd have to be rinsed until the water ran clear and would have to dry really well.

To each his/her own. With a family, I personally like dishwashers because of the time it saves. You just use, rinse and stack dishes in it until it's full or you run out of dishes and run it. But without kids, hand washing after every meal wasn't a big deal because cooking was not done as frequently, not as many dishes were used and time was not needed to manage homework, drop offs, runny noses, and get ready for work the next day, etc. So it really all depends on what your needs are. It's not like untreated stream water is used to handwash anyway...

Love it! Looks like a home for a human and a Boxer and not a home for a camera crew.
