Take the time to replace all of those lights for a brighter, happier space. In your bedroom or den, try opting for lower wattage lights (between 20- and 50-watts) to create a cozier and more romantic ambience. Here is a great guide to lighting your home.

I just don't get it, guys. Aren't you a large company that ships tons of stuff? How can you mess so much stuff up? Basic process control - you ship lots of Blum slides, right? Haven't you figured out how to package them? And why don't you check the email address you post on the website? When someone leaves the company, why don't you set up an auto-reply so that people emailing her know they won't be getting an answer? And when a customer is angry because you've shorted an order, why don't you FedEx overnight a replacement RIGHT AWAY, rather than use some cut-rate discount shipper?

Many certificate programs offer generalized furniture making techniques and may culminate with the creation of a piece of furniture. Depending on previous experience and education, students may be qualified to enter into advanced certificate programs.
3.Rearrange the bookshelf. Reorganizing the bookshelf will easily make an entire room look more styled and polished, and you don't even have to get rid of anything.

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.

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. I was little confused that our typical rectangular farmhouse table was not going to cut it. So, I walked in I came to know that we needed to build a round dining table. So, I searched for a plan design idea and build a very own round farmhouse dining table. I was an amazing DIY plan, I just love it!
