  • Planting a garden over a playground?

    Planting a garden over a playground?

    Best answer: The sand base would be good for drainage. But, rather than pile soil on top of that, consider building raised beds. You'll use less soil, and won't spend nearly as much time on your knees as you tend your garden.

My wife was and still is, a Homemaker, While raising eight children she kept a neat house. If I left a teacup in the sink, the next time I walked by that cup, now clean, would be in the drying rack. The children are all grown, but today se vacuumed all the carpets, even in the rooms that are not used. Some people are like that. Your friends are slobs and nothing will change them. Either put up with it or move them out.

  • I need an edger/trimmer?

    My issue is I have never figured out how to change the line in one. I have a corded one that I never use because of it. So It has to be cordless . How can I learn to change the line? Other than buying the kind with really expensive line.

  • Cost to run electricity to middle of commercial space?

    I am considering investing in a franchise. I just learned that there are 3 locations in the commercial space that will require electricity in the middle of the room. They want the wires to be ran under the carpet (using carpet tiles). I've did some research and learned that the 2 options are either using FCC (flat wire) or cutting into the ground. The current space has hardwood on top of concrete. I know you will not be able to give me real numbers, but what kind of pricing should I be looking for? Space is maybe 20 feet wide, 50 feet deep. I guess they would have to get the power running from the walls to the center of the room? Maybe 10 feet? Just trying to get my head around pricing before I decide to invest. This is the only thing I'm clueless about and if it's going to cost a million dollars, I'll opt out.

    I'm ordering this tent to camp. It's exactly what I'm looking for EXCEPT the "porch" does not have flaps to cover it if it rains. Any solutions? I was thinking using metal clasps/snap button things (sorry idk how to explain it much better) & cutting it to fit the screens individually so you can attach & unattach them. Maybe there are other, easier solutions I couldn't think of. The tent is in my price range & otherwise is exactly what I'm looking for so please don't suggest I buy a different one. I've looked for a long time with no luck.

  • How to remove child poop smell from microfiber couch?

    Basically my daughter pooped and it bled through her clothes and before I could notice it she sat on the couch in a small area. I used baby wipes but the smell is still there. Is there a way to get the smell out or will it fade on it’s own.

  • Is there such thing as having too much leather furniture in a house? Can it be unfitting and unappealing?

    Best answer: You can pull this off with the right accessories. The key to a good decorating scheme is to combine color and texture with proportion for a good cohesive overall look.

    Best answer: You can pull this off with the right accessories. The key to a good decorating scheme is to combine color and texture with proportion for a good cohesive overall look. Leather is classic but can be cold looking if you do not accessorize well.
    However, if you desire a minimalistic look, that can be accomplished easily by decorating scarcely with modern or contemporary accents.

    Most leather sofa sets are large, so they can easily overwhelm a room. So, you must pay attention to scale in all other aspects of the room's design. For instance, if you have a sectional or a three piece leather set of one couch, one love seat and one chair, you should not have curtains with a small print or a small printed accent rug. The bigger the furniture, the bigger the other textiles in the room should be. Also, light is an issue. Leather furniture is dark, so it will look nice to lighten things up with a lighter rug and curtains. If there is not a lot of light in the room, it is best to use reflective objects of décor, like metal lamps, glass that reflects light and different levels of lighting.

    Most solid colored couches look great with printed fabric patterns for pillows. However, it is hard to get a pillow to stay upright on leather because is slips and not will remain upright. Therefore lumbar pillows are preferred. Lumbar pillows are pillows that are longer than they are high.

    So, your fabric elements of interior design (curtains, pillows, a throw blanket and even an area rug) are key to making dark solid furniture and chairs look warm and inviting. Also, if you are going ALL leather, do not make the mistake of picking all browns or all blacks......mix it up. Have your dining room a different leather color than the leather used in your living room. I love the look of WHITE leather seats in a dining room.

    Pick accent colors that pop, like red, burnt oranges and golden yellows (think fall colors). You can never go wrong with citrus colors like lime green, lemon yellow and orange. This is where you add the interest in any room. If you have things that will not match your new look, then consider spray painting them. Yes, spray paint. There are so many great colors and some wonderful metal look spray paints available today. So, if you have things you can transform with spray paint, consider that option. I once found a fugly lamp at the Good Will and loved the shape, so I spray painted it and it was transformed to a show piece on my end table.

    If you have a cat, beware. Cats can destroy leather in a week with their claws.

  • Ductless Mini split; I have a leak on the inside coil,Replacement question?

    I found the leak on the inside wall mount unit- I found the same BTU system from the same manufacturer (Pioneer) - The model is "newer" - Will I be able to ONLY change out the inside wall unit? I assume they are compatible like a typical heat pump/ air handler setup?
