I wish this cure was in February too! The after holiday packing up threw off all my good intentions. We might try to make this work for next month instead

If you are considering a dark corian (or any solid surface) be aware that the darker colors show scratches as white lines. They can be very visible. Just an FYI!

@TEXTILES: The adhesive squares, FlorDots, should be sticking to the undersides of your tile. If it’s sticking to anything else, you did it wrong.

I love my FLOR tile rugs. With 2 young kids & a cat, I’m always so thankful to be able to pull up a tile to rinse it off when necessary.
Its taking product that can handle commercial wear & designing it with a more graphic, fun aesthetic that appeals to a more residential palette. Yay for FLOR!

@TALLSARAH, I have a Parallel Reality rug in my living room: combination of 5 of the colors. I LOVE IT!!!! You’ll be so happy!

anyone know of a site where the baskets are sorted by sizes? I need new ones to fit under my coffee table and find the right size has proved difficult

I remember the Christmas when my CPK came… I woke up so early & crept downstairs. The tree lights were on & all the presents were out. I found my stuff & the CPK box was an odd shape so I zeroed on that quickly. I remember reaching out a finger to poke the front to the present… and the cellophane crinkled. It was a CPK!! Santa brought it!! I ran back upstairs to my room and waiting what felt like an agonizing few hours before I started throwing thing at my younger sister to wake her up. She had red hair & green eyes… no ideas what her name was.

I got another one later- braided red hair, blue eyes & a pacifier. I lost the pacifier when we were on vacation. My mom lugged me back the store where I thought I lost it & we didn’t find it. That poor doll had an empty hole in her mouth from there on out. That upset me so much.

Oh thank you. I've seen such conflicting views on whether or not to sand butcher block countertops or not. I have them & they need some attention.
