First instruction to make quilted headboards; place the plywood behind the bed and mark where the top of the mattress meets the board. The board will be covered up to this mark. Also, mark the desired height of the headboard. A headboard can be any height from 43″ to the full 8″ of the plywood depending on individual preference. Using a saw, cut a 4″ by 8″ piece of plywood at the desired height. Using fine sandpaper, sand all of the sides of the plywood to remove any splinters of wood. Then, place a piece of 1″ thick foam on the area of the plywood that is to be quilted. Mark the foam and cut it with a utility knife or scissors. Spray adhesive spray on to the surface of the plywood board. Then, place the foam on to the board pressing down lightly to make sure it adheres to the surface.

Place the quilt batting on top of the foam and cut to fit with scissors. Spray the foam lightly with spray adhesive and lay the quilt batting on top, pressing lightly to keep in place. Lay the fabric on a flat surface and place the plywood board on to the fabric with the quilt batting side down on the board. Pull the fabric over the sides of the plywood board and staple to the back of the board along the top and 2 sides. Turn the board over and staple across the bottom of the fabric along the edge of the batting. Trim away all of the excess fabric.

Using a tape measure, measure 12″ down from the top of the quilted headboard. Starting at the side of the board, place a staple every 12″ so that there are 3 staples across the board. Measure down another 12″ and staple in the middle of each the above staples. his row should have 2 staples. Continue until the entire quilted area has alternating lines of staples. Using a hot glue gun, glue large buttons on to each of the staples. Then, glue ribbon or cording along the 3 edges of the board and along the bottom where the fabric ends. The quilted headboard may now be attached to the bed frame.

Some tips why linen is for our kids health are here:

    It is true, Kunstler is a writer. His jeremiads may inspire outrage among the white latte drinking yuppies, but they lack not only sound research, but also completely fail to address the problems facing the poor, the working class, and people of color. His solutions suggest a return to the “good days.” Interestingly, in his days apparently everyone was middle class and white. He argues that we should green, we should ban the automobile, we should live in planned communities designed with “classic” architecture and locally grown produce. Well, great, but how? His diatribes on Detroit clear his lack of about the challenges that face the urban and the complexities of our relationship to technology. Not to mention I can’t the man who belies the evils of Modernism and praises the magnificence of Seaside, FL (I kid you not!) is being mentioned at all on AT. He is an elitist of the worst sort – one who passes himself off as progressive.If you are really concerned about the future of humanity and the crises ahead, may I suggest scholars such as Kenneth T. Jackson, Tom Sugrue, Sharon Zukin or Dolores Hayden. My *, even Mike Davis has a better of the issues than Kunstler.Very disappointed AT!

    Everything is looking great, Jennifer.Bravo to you for reducing the cabinetry and working within your budget. I agree with some previous comments that it would be to a stretch of prep on the exterior wall. Perhaps with an shelf or two? It would be and less claustrophobic but extremely functional. Fingers crossed for no more surprises and continued progress. Thanks for letting us follow along.

    I try to a medium with stuff. I cleaned out my parents house and they were hoarders. Kept all taxes and paperwork from their entire life and bought and sold antiques in their retirement, buying more than they sold. Luckily items sold well at auction once we picked out the family heirlooms from the purchased items. I in contrast picked one thing that I wanted to and concentrate only on that. I absorb my collection of blown glass and maintain most of it dust free glass doors. I appreciate my collection and my house can be easily cleaned. You learn from your parents that is for sure.

    Well put, Maxwell. Posts this, in which you your process, and talk about why and how AT works the it does, are great.I would add to the above to say that not only is AT about community, but it is about process. The process of making greener, more beautiful, healthier homes mirrors the process of making a more useful, comely and healthy blog. And as with all processes, there are mistakes, fuckups and ideas. How you recover from the missteps says more, in the end, than the instant successes, I think.Bravo. Onward and upward.

    In our house #1 turned 2 and #2 arrives in less than 3 months. We are happily carless and the diaper (Skip hop Duo or Duo double depending on the amount of gear) lives on the stroller handle. Thinking about packing for two I bear a better sense now of what I need and employ and will not carry the kitchen sink I did at first. -I having dedicated pockets in the so I can honest feel the snack pocket and know if we enough. -I maintain the up stuff (extra clothes, diapers) in zip lock bags to them small. -I idea for forgetting things refilling the wipes container with a up pack of wipes. -I also the basket of the stroller to hold extra stuff that we always (like reusable bags). -I acquire checking the accept on my weekly to list to clean it out and accomplish it is all stocked. -I worked at a shop that sold GoGaga bags (there are a few styles) and they are wonderful, green, comfortable and functional. My boss uses hers as a laptop bag.

    We are lucky enough to live in Oregon, where my family has a tree farm on the side. We sell U-Cut trees that about as carbon to harvest as a to the mall for Christmas presents. Trees are chop by hand, fieldwork is done by hand, are pesticide free, and are replanted every year. In the meantime, our thousands of trees are taking carbon out of the air, providing habitat for wildlife (many deer, rabbits, birds, etc) and improving the water table. Perhaps the debate needs to turn to buying local responsibly produced trees versus trees shipped by carton. Our local municipalities and boy scouts provide many easy for recycling and if a tree was trashed, at least it would the to decompose versus sit as plastic in a landfill for eons potentially leaching the plastics and lead into our water supply. Until a recyclable variety of trees are produced, I firmly beget naturally grown trees are the more environmental approach.

    F.Y.I.–for those of you with dishwashers that not them:A dishwasher needs to be regularly to in working order, or hoses and such can dry-out. Basically, creating a leaking mess for the next tenants…happened to friends of mine, they only hand wash, and ran the DW one day…the repairman clued them in likely why it leaked.

    My kitchen is under construction at this extremely moment. The Ikea cabinets are up but the protective plastic has not yet been removed. But my experience so far brings to light one more pro. I hired out for installation and the workers broke one of the cabinet boxes. Since all the Ikea parts are sold separately, it was cheap to replace the broken box– only about $24. If the contractors had made the same mistake with another of cabinet, the entire cabinet would needed to be replaced and it would likely been more expensive.

    @Virginia Grayson I grew up in the “north” and we dinner, however my mother-in-law from the same town uses supper for the last meal and dinner for the noon meal. I it may acquire originated as you replied with city vs. rural and may become habit or preferable from there. Dialect is always interesting!

    had this ‘issue” a few years and our landlord refused to let us change them. so we bought rolls of grass clothe…they in all kinds of colors….and them to the size of the cabinets, attached them with double sided tape(use the “industrial” kind) and then when we moved ripped everything down…little adhesive remover and they where the same as when we moved in. did this trick again to a stack-able washer and dryer combo that sits off to the side of my kitchen now……

    advice! When my mother got her first smartphone I downloaded a load of apps for her and showed her how to them all and as a result she was streets ahead of my historically gadget-freak father, as well as nearly all her friends.

    This is definitely an insta-finalist. Absolutely amazing. Is is me? No. Does it my vote? Yes. For the same reasons I Yves Saint Laurent; even in the day when I was thin I could never wear his clothes.

    I agree with those who say to commence collecting pictures or going on pinterest. You can organize them by room–bathroom, kitchen, bedrooms, etc. Instead of buying a ton of things at once it may be better to bewitch things as they appeal to you and let the rooms grow that way.

  20. Ryann@1978

    looks great! Shows how you can turn something bland into something really personal. I reorganized my closet this weekend, didnt this good. The shelving has me envious I the depraved cheap wire stuff the before pic.If Im getting a layout of the room based on the pics im guessing there is a thrid wall we arent seeing that probably is impartial racks of clothes.

    @ScannerJockey Yeah, I am confused about this as well. What is the point of both a bridal shower and a hen night if you accept gifts at both? I was under the impression a bridal shower was thrown by female relatives to abet the bride “become” a wife (like all the risque stuff), and the hen night was a fun night out with the bridesmaids, drinking and eating and being merry. Am I wrong?

I live in zone 8 so you may be in a better temp for planting now than I would be. Also now is a time to plant blueberry bushes. I three waiting for me at 🙂 they are the variety for your area.

    When our youngest boys were about 11, my sister and I exchanging family gifts and adopted a family through a local church. You could the size of the family based on your budget and they gave you a list of suggested gifts (usually clothing and a toy) and a grocery list. You purchased everything and delivered it to the church to give to the family.One year our husbands ended up with identical sweaters and our boys with the same Lego sets. We realized it was all trivial and unnecessary.

We a tradition of a cookie swap party the Sunday before Christmas and our best friends approach over the day before and we decorate our tree together.
