Attach the side pieces flush to the bottom of the bottom shelf by inserting 1¼” wood screws into pre-drilled holes (at least 2 per board). On one side of the shelf, secure the two 6” boards on the outside edges with the 4” board in between. Repeat for the other side. TIP: If you do not want the screws to show in the finished project, sink them slightly and cover them with wood putty and a light dab of stain. Make a mark on the inside of the side pieces, 9” above the top of the bottom shelf. Attach the second shelf in the same way, lining up the bottom of the shelf with the mark. Place the top on and secure in the same manner.
Maggie Mee, head of merchandising at Nordstrom's Trunk Club, a personalized styling service, has some solid advice when it comes to packing for business travel. "When traveling for business, items that don't easily wrinkle and that you feel comfortable and confident wearing should all be considerations," says Mee. "Wool and bamboo are great fabric choices as both are temperature regulating, dry quickly, wrinkle less and are lightweight. A knit sport coat stands up well to travel and gives a polished look, while layering a lightweight merino wool sweater over a dress shirt can hide wrinkles. Choosing complementary colors and textures is helpful, too, should you need to accommodate for weather or a last-minute wardrobe emergency. Consider also bringing at least one bold pattern—it can help you stand out, initiate conversation and may even hide some stains."
As seen on Love It Or List It, Too the previous kitchen is now a powered room and storage in the newly expanded kitchen. The kitchen sits where the dining area used to be, extending into the dining/living room where the country kitchen now sits. A custom kitchen dining table extends from the Ceasarstone countertop island called Misty Carrera. The layout was inspired by the Italian kitchen where the household help would often eat at their workspace, thus the extended island and dining table. The chandelier sits over the fixed island as the dining table is bound to be moved around. The dining chairs are an eclectic collection of Eames and Ikea rattan, mismatched to give the feeling of an informal gathering where newly added guests will pull up any chair they can find. The island houses a microwave and lots of storage space and ample storage is found on the back wall where there was once the kitchen. The cabinets are stained opaque, both grey and white, with Benjamin More. The flooring found throughout stone brown red oak from Mercer. The wall color is called Milk Paint from Behr.
