We have a small dining room area in our farmhouse that is separate from the living room and kitchen. The area is much smaller in space than our last house.

Blogger Brittany Moser of darkroomanddearly.com made these Polaroid-inspired drink rests from color photos and square tiles (a steal at 15 cents apiece). First, trim a photo to 3 3/4"W x 3 1/4"H. Using a foam brush, spread Mod Podge on the back of the image; then position it on a tile, leaving a 1/4-inch border at the top and sides, and a 3/4-inch border at the bottom. Let dry for 30 minutes. Spread Mod Podge over the photo and exposed tile borders and let dry for one hour; repeat two to three more times. Spray with clear sealant and let dry for 24 hours. Finally, affix adhesive felt pads to the underside corners of your picture-perfect tiles.

Professional Series Completion:  To fully complete MSF’s 9-month Professional Training program, students will need to attend all three levels of training: Basic, Intermediate, and Master-Level which collectively equal 36 weeks / 9 months of classes, and satisfy all class requirements for each level.  Students may enroll in 3 consecutive sessions (Fall, Winter, and Spring – in any order), and complete the entire professional training within 9 months – 1 calendar year.  Alternatively, students may space their training sessions out over a longer period.  For example, they may attend 1 session per year (Fall, Winter, or Spring – in any order), in which case completion of all training levels may take 3 years.  Students enroll in each level/session independently of all others and are not required to commit to / take all three levels of training, though completion of the entire series is highly recommended.  There are significant tuition discounts for students who, at the start of their training, enroll in multiple, consecutive 12-week sessions.
Our founder, Austin Waldo, got his passion for woodworking by hanging around his grandfather’s woodshop while growing up in Kansas.

There’s a lot of space above the shelf in most closets. Even though it’s a little hard to reach, it’s a great place to store seldom-used items. Make use of this wasted space by adding a second shelf above the existing one. Buy enough closet shelving material to match the length of the existing shelf plus enough for two end supports and middle supports over each bracket. Twelve-inch-wide shelving is available in various lengths and finishes at home centers and lumberyards.
A super simple iPad Dock/stand made out of a single block of wood features an angled groove which gets to support the tablet device and a cut in a hole to revise access to the home button of your iPad. It’s possible to drill an access channel in the stand through which you can run a charging cable, although this mini stripped back iPad stand may have very limited functions.
Cross-stitch makes the leap from fabric to glassware with help from a free font and transparent sticker sheets ($13.99 for ten 8 1/2"W x 11"L sheets; amazon.com). Go to myfonts.com and download the Home Sweet Home font. Use it to type out the names of pantry staples, adding a decorative flourish if you like, in a Microsoft Word document, then adjust the type size and alignment to fit your canisters (from $3.99 for one quart; containerstore.com). Following package instructions for the decal sheets, print your document(s). Once the ink has dried, lightly coat each sheet with a thin layer of hair spray, to prevent smearing; let dry. Cut out and trim each label, then affix to the canisters. Note: The labels won’t be entirely waterproof, so when necessary, carefully wash your canisters by hand.

I know I’ve been a little MIA but we’ve had a big project in the backyard, an overwhelming workload (which we planned on being MUCH less), and then decided to hire out for some help to haul away a huge amount of dirt.  Unfortunately, that ended up with the guy we hired stealing from us…..uggggh.  When will we ever learn to not be so trusting?!  Steve and I both have a problem with that……but when did being “too trusting” become such an extreme character flaw?!!  Sad.  Anyway, the whole situation is under investigation and there are some definite twists to the story that the crime-show-watcher in me would love to share with any other crime-show-watching enthusiasts out there. ;) Hopefully soon.
Thinking my orders were now correct, I went to install the slides, and found you had sent me an odd number of Left/Right Blum drawer clips (they are sold in pairs. I ordered pairs. You sent me 5 right and 3 left). I emailed Teresa, personally, and guess what? No reply. So I called, and someone told me Teresa had quit. This new person apologized and said she'd send me a Left clip the same day.

Work Study:  Students may apply for our Work Study option.   In return for acting as Shop Monitor during open shop periods, MSF will reduce the student’s tuition.  Shop monitors must be present in the shop during assigned hours primarily to enhance safety (assigned hours will not conflict with class hours).  Among other responsibilities, Shop Monitors make sure policies are honored and are responsible for the leaving the shop in good order at the end of their shift.  If space is available, Monitors may use the shop to work on their own projects during their shifts.  Our preference is to award work study positions first to students experiencing financial hardship.  Please notify us if you are interested in work study .  For more information, see our Tuitions & Registration page.

“Going to the furniture making evening class was the highlight of my week (and I wasn't the only person on the course to say that!)

I placed another order in April for more slides. This time, they were not stacked together, but literally just thrown in a box with zero packing material. Heavy drawer slides just literally tossed loose into a box with no packing material. Obviously, they were also damaged. Again, I emailed, and got no reply. I called and spoke to Teresa, who sent me replacements. When I explained that I had emailed to no reply, she had me forward the email to her email address. She received my email and was able to find it in the info@... inbox, and expressed surprise that no one had replied to my earlier emails.
Look at the types of things you do each day…each week. What can you move around so that it’s a better fit for you? Can you suggest to your team that you schedule meetings for late morning if you can’t stand to be social first thing? Can you schedule detailed project work or highly creative tasks, like writing or designing when you are best able to focus? How about making sales calls or client meetings on days when you are the most social and leaving billing or reports until another time when you are able to close your door and do repetitive tasks.
