Tips for Making Old Furniture Look like New

When I got married, my mother passed a family heirloom onto me that was a piece of old, wooden furniture that had been in the family for generations. Since it was showing its age, I decided to see if I could learn how to restore it. Before I worked on it, I decided to practice on a few furniture pieces I grabbed at a second-hand store. I soon learned that restoring old furniture was more difficult than I expected, but I also learned how much I love to do it! I soon fell in love with my new hobby and am always working on a new piece. I know there are people out there who want to learn how to restore furniture, so I decided to create a blog to share my tips and tricks for learning a new hobby. I hope I can help you learn your new craft!

Bathroom Mold Requires Professional Removal When It Grows In These 3 Areas

Bathrooms are prime real estate for mold spores—bathrooms are often very humid, poorly ventilated, and susceptible to condensation or puddling water. All of these conditions make it the perfect location for mold spores to grow and thrive. Since bathroom mold is so common, many homeowners simply ignore it aside from periodically cleaning it.
