Before & After: Rita's Really (Really!) Amazing Closet Transformation

Planning with grandkids to try this method this spring...we read the article, discussed the need to find wood, what kind of tools we would need to borrow from grandpa and a source for soil...planned a trip to Valley Feed and Seed for the set potatoes and checked the calendar for weekends in spring when we might all be together for the project. All in all time sell spent.....and then we scrolled on down and there at the bottom in other articles you might be interested in, was a photo, partially blocked, but obviously of two sexually involved adults on a "sex chair". Could you possibly be more stupid? I am really furious at your editors and their disregard for the many people who do not need or want this type of garbage on your site.

I really like tip #13. I have two of the loveliest grands boys and they are very capable boys for their age...but when their parents give them choices for everything under the sun it makes me wince. Without fail, at least once a week or so, Mom or Dad try to convince them that the other choice is better. This sets the stage for some strong opposition from both boys.

Those orange stools...would love to find a couple for my breakfast grandsons would love to sit on those for any food activity...that pop of orange is a sort of Adler kind of quirky pleasure. (Love love love Adler) The mirrors you have placed on several walls are just them.
Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Rustoleum and Colorbond both make paints made to adhere to vinyl upholstery. Surfaces have to be completely cleaned (to help with paint bonding) and completely dry.
Use safe practices, floor cloths, open windows and doors or use a garage.
Several fine coats and allow drying between coats.
Another way to decorate the vinyl is to remove the covering and use a machine to apply a decorative embroidery stitch to the surface and reattach to the bench.

I am a true lover of Apartment Therapy and love all you bring to me as a reader. Including these gorgeous and wonderfully crafted chairs, unfortunately I am not able to enter the contest as I am no longer a Facebook user. To many obnoxious ads and invasive snooping into my interests. Please stop requiring this insane requirement of "liking" something on Facebook to enter your contest. It is awfully unfair to those of us who truly love your site and your contributors. Maxwell and Faith are them to pieces.

Hello there.....Just wanted to say that this is probably the best giveaway I have EVER seen. Different companies offer lovely things for free and all you need to do is fill out the form and if your chosen it will come to you without any further obligation.
I enter every one and have actually won before. I am not a blogger, I am a wife mother and grandmother who lives out on the prairie and once in a while the random generator has been kind. I have absolutely no connection with the good folks at AP other than loving their wonderful site and all the beauty and creativity they share with us. I hope you will find many opportunities to continue entering these wonderful contest, not only here, but in other places. Be persistent...and good luck. Sincerely...another reader.

I just used my mouli to make potatoes tonight...they are so smooth and creamy when done with this tool.Of late I use it to make baby foods for my grandson...we freeze meal size portions of carrots, potatoes, green beans and squash and cooked fruits. I use my digital thermometer to check everything...takes the guess work out and gives me piece of mind.

You can also place the bin in the freezer, stops the fruit flies and prevents any odors from building up. Just leave it to sit out overnight to thaw and empty it the next will all breakdown in the heap.
