what’s your fave summer spot?

No doubt you have a long list of things you love about summer, like vacations, backyard BBQs, and garden tomatoes that put grocery store tomatoes to shame. How about adding one more thing to your list: a great place to sit on your porch/deck/patio/front lawn. I’m talking about a spot that really calls your name when the sun is shining and the iced tea is fully chilled, and where, given half the chance, you could easily nod off to the lullaby of the ice cream truck jingling down the street. If you don’t have your ultimate outdoor seat yet, it’s not too late. You can get a cushiony sofa, a chaise longue, a rocking chair, or a swing—you’re never too old for a swing! Hanging out on this one made…

dear hgtv magazine

I was delighted by your ideas for updating wood furniture in the May issue [“Make Your Old Stuff Look Modern”]. Although I enjoy the trend of painting wood vibrant colors, it was a pleasant surprise to see your tips for styling around the furniture instead of using paint. Thanks!—Barbara Mattson, Poplar, WISeeing the wall on your April cover, painted Watery by HGTV HOME by Sherwin-Williams, was a fun coincidence, because we just painted several walls in our home the same color. We love the light blue shade, and we’re glad you do, too.—Kristin Zanavich, Carlsbad, CAWatery by HGTV HOME by Sherwin-WilliamsSince subscribing to your magazine a few years ago, my husband and I have enjoyed every issue. We’ve upholstered old furniture and painted several rooms with colors we never would’ve…

if you do only one thing this month: hang a flag for fourth of july

Follow these tips to show your respect for the Stars and Stripes.* Mount the flag to a spot on your house clear of any obstructions that could cause it to tear.* Keep it up from sunrise to sunset. Take the flflag down at night, unless it’s illuminated by an outdoor light.* If your flag is made of all-weather material (many are today), it’s not against the rules to leave it up in bad weather. But take down a cotton flflag before a storm so it won’t get ruined.* Displaying a worn flag is a breach of etiquette, so replace yours if it’s faded or ripped. To discard the old one, call your local American Legion offiffice.OUR EXPERT: Michael D. Buss, deputy director at the American Legion ■…

how bad is it…

…to not reseal your granite counters?Responsible counter manufacturers will seal granite before or during installation, says Greg Fox, owner of Fox Granite in Austin, TX. And most granite is coated with resin for extra protection before it even leaves the quarry. How often to reseal depends on the density of your slab. Some stone suppliers recommend resealing as frequently as twice a year; others, every few years. To determine if your granite needs a touch-up, pour a few drops of water on it, and watch what happens. If the droplets bead up, you’re in the clear. If they seep into the granite, you’ll want to reseal ASAP or your counters can become stained. A DIY job is fine. Fox recommends the 511 Impregnator sealer by Miracle Sealants Company, available at…
