Re: Sueanne & Rani

I don't know precisely what the material is, but it's easy to keep clean, it never shows a pathway. Just tell them you want it soft and cushy, upgraded padding, which IMO, is worth every cent.

I have always heard and done.

I have always heard and done the following:

1. Clean out the room in question first! Get rid of anything you don't want to use in your new room. This can sometimes be a huge step!! lol

2. Pick one favorite thing you want to keep and use the colors from it.

Alot of times simply painting and moving things around can make a huge difference. My advice would be to try everything else before changing furniture, it is costly!! (Unless you just want a new couch!) They also have great slip covers that can change a room in a money pinch.
Until we "meat" again, break an "egg"

I need to think about rearranging the living room.

I live in a split level house and the living room really has only ONE's a long wall. The adjoining wall is basically a 10-foot-wide, floor to ceiling set of windows (all connected). Adjoining that is a railing overlooking the half-flight of stairs to the lower level, and the last side of the room is open to the dining room.

I have a large sofa and love seat. I HAD the love seat backed up to the railing, but my 2 year old is starting to climb onto the love seat and I'm afraid he will just vault himself right over the back of it and fall 8 feet

This morning I put the love seat along the window wall, but not all the way back. Not sure if I like it, and it leaves the railing exposed for Luke to climb (but I can probably figure out a way to childproof that). It does limit access to the window area of the room.

I don't know if DH will like this when he gets home. I think I will try to live with it for a week and see how it goes. I have NOWHERE else in the house to put this big furniture!

Well, the arrangement didn't last a week.

Luke tried to climb the railing, and I figured the chances of him vaulting the back of the couch were SMALLER than the chances of him getting over the railing by simply climbing over it so back everything went.

He can now climb all the safety gates in the house.

He is pulling over living room lamps. I'm going nuts. Can't turn my back for a second.
