I've finally got rid of our old comforter set. It was a little bit of disappointment because after a few months of using it, the seams on the comforter and decorative pillows pulled apart and shredded. Well, I guess I got what I paid for.
I bought it for $79.99 (7 piece comforter set: California King Size)
I'm glad I found a great deal from 1SaleADay website. Home and Main 7-Piece Comforter Set was on sale for $39.99 (King Size) + $4.99 Shipping and handling.
Hubby likes the material better than the previous one. I also like the color because it lightens up and complements the theme of our room. I hope this will last for a few years.
Am I too old for a bear? I hope not...lol! It's one of hubby's valentine presents years ago.
I bought another 2 sets of garden soil from Home Depot yesterday. I'm going to use them for my flower pots and vegetable garden. I like using this kind of soil because it's moisture control. I don't have to worry about watering my plants everyday.
Leather sofas are a popular furniture purchase for any modern family, but when you come to pick your leather sofa design, it can be tricky to know what you’re actually buying. Of course you know it’s made of leather, but what are the differences between the leathers on offer? Here’s a round-up:
Full Aniline Leather
Let’s start with the most luxurious finish for leather sofas. Full Aniline is completely natural without any coating except a protective layer that keeps it from being scratched. Full aniline leather sofas are wonderfully soft to the touch and, for those who can afford it, add glamor and sophistication to any room.
Natural Waxed Hide
Natural waxed hide looks great on modern leather sofas and it is the fasting growing leather on the market at the moment. It generally has a very light protective coating which means it can get scratched quite easily but it is nothing a quick re-colour with a specialist cream can fix. The natural scarring features make the leather have a unique appeal.
Extra Thick & Double Thickness Hide
These two hides are very similar, being thicker than ordinary leather. Leather sofas made from either of these leathers are usually great value for money as they are hard-wearing. These leathers look nice on corner sofas or large suites. They feature a heavy grain which makes them ideal for everyday use from a big family.
If you want your sofa to be soft and warm, then semi-aniline (or Fine grain) leather is a wonderful option. It looks nice on either vintage or modern couch designs and has a luxurious soft finish with adequate protection to keep it looking as good as new despite everyday use.
Corrected Grain Leather
This is the cheapest and most basic form of leather, often found on budget leather sofas. It means that the leather has a coated finish that adds a strong, uniformed look to the material. It is still soft to the touch but does not have that really luxurious feel found on semi-aniline or full aniline leather sofas. This leather is the easiest to keep clean.
I've been longing to buy a new night table for our master's bedroom. Actually, we have one already but I wanted to have one on my husband's side of the bed. So I went online shopping at walmart.com, and found a night table that looks exactly the same as the ones we have.
I assembled it right after the item arrived. It's really simple to put the pieces together. I think I finished it in less than 20 minutes.
It's very functional and attractive. I bought it for $49.00 + shipping + tax. It's about $52 total.
