    Does it cost more to heat/cool a house that is minimally furnished (one bedroom is completely empty) vs one that is furnished at a more "normal" level? TIA
  2. Make It Yourself
    My kitchen cabinets are old, old, old, and look their age, so I didn't mind experimenting on them. :) I tried a "recipe" for furniture polish that is 1 part white vinegar to 4 parts olive oil. I made up a very small batch of 1/4 c. of oil and 2 T. vinegar. You can keep this in a sealed glass...

    Does anyone have any new projects to share? I just picked these chairs up on Kijiji - 4 for $40. The seats were white and pretty grungy, and the finish was a fake wood colour that I hate, and a little banged up. I'm all about the blue & white these days :) so I stapled on some blue & white...

    It was hard for me to go shopping for a sofa even though our other was 13 years old and clearly in need of replacing. Hubby says that is because I get buyers remorse for everything from a soda to a house. I was so scared to go look at sofas at the store, so nervous that I almost didn't sit in...

    Has anyone ever heard or tried this tip? I just read it yesterday and thought it was really bizarre. Apparently if you have scratches or dings in wood furniture, you can rub them with a piece of walnut (the inside not the shell) and they will look like they've disappeared. I don't have a...

    After months of looking, I finally found a gently used high quality treadmill at a local used furniture store! It was priced at about 10% of the new price, including delivery. Of course, now I lost my excuse to sleep in on freezing mornings...

    We sold our home and are moving to a slightly smaller home. This downsizing means that some of our furniture won't fit. And the way the new home is configured, the living areas are larger than our current living areas, but the bedrooms are smaller than our current bedrooms. Thus we have extra...
