hello, home

Did you know that the right furniture can help you live the farmhouse lifestyle you want? For example, having a porch swing or rocking chair will make it comfortable to watch your kids play in the front yard. An office desk with an antiqued finish and just the right number of drawers and cubbies will motivate you to stay organized and productive. And the right sofa will allow your living room to be host to both guests at a party and your family for a movie night. Especially as the weather gets colder this fall and activities move indoors, you’ll want your furniture to be in top shape. Now is the time to re-evaluate and replace those armchairs with saggy seats, the coffee table that wobbles and the dining table your…

5 Vegetables to Cook This Fall 1. Artichokes. The best and easiest way to cook this vegetable is by steaming it. Look for artichokes with tightly closed leaves, and remember to cut off the thorn tips. 2. Acorn Squash. Simply cut them in half, remove their seeds and bake them until soft. Add butter and brown sugar for a sweet treat. 3. Leeks. As the milder cousin of onions, leeks are perfect for soups. You’re better off using the lighter parts and saving the dark bits for broths. 4. Peppers. Best used in late summer/early fall, chili peppers will add heat to any dish. 5. Chard. Whether you make them into a soup or sauté them as a side, make sure to separate the leaves from the stem, as they cook at different rates. Did you…

diy reupholstery

Mint-condition furniture can make any living area look like an immaculate showroom. But Jen Crider’s book, Amazing Furniture Makeovers: Easy DIY Projects to Transform Thrifted Finds into Beautiful Custom Pieces, demonstrates how personalized thrift-store finds can have the same impact as new furniture for half the price. “I’d much rather update a thrifted chair for cheap in exactly my own style than pay a high price for a brand-new one,” Jen writes. To spruce up your rooms without breaking the bank, here are Jen’s nine steps to reupholstering a thrifted or well-loved chair. WHAT YOU’LL NEED: • Screwdriver• Upholstery staple remover• Poly foam pad (suggestion: 1-inch [2.5-cm]- thick pad)• Sewing scissors• Cotton batting (suggestion: Warm & White)• Heavy-duty stapler• Staples• Hammer• Durable fabric• Neutral fabric for bottom side of seat (optional)• Paint…
