A Hidden Jewel in Home Decorating, the Powder Room

Typically a small space consisting of just a sink and toilet, you most likely know them by a more common term "half-bath" or "guest bath. Ever wonder where the term "powder room" came from? It's derived from Victorian times, when women needed to "powder their noses". Why consider them a jewel when it comes to decorating, also why bother decorating them, it is after all only a bathroom. A bathroom is a room in your home, in fact depending on the number of baths you have it can become a public room, which means from time to time other people besides yourself will be passing through. So why not dress it up, even if guest only use it occasionally make it pretty for you. Due to their size, a complete make over can be done in as little as a weekend and at little cost. This is also what makes them a jewel; being small you can really have fun decorating them, plus by not requiring a big budget you're able to change the look more often. The following are a few ideas to get started with. Start with the walls. Paint, wallpaper, stenciling what ever treatment you like. With the small size of the room, the cost will be a lot lower. Here is the perfect opportunity to experiment with bolder colors, some type of theme or maybe you've been dying to try one of the many painting techniques. Using a theme to decorate the bath can be really fun. If your not sure what to use take a look around your home for inspiration. It could be an extension of a collection you may have or a take off on a vacation. Example of a theme, based on a vacation: Do you love the beach and vacation each year at the ocean? If so here is your inspiration. Use a wallpaper border around the room with shells or boats on it. Hunt around discount stores, flea markets or garage sales for beach related accessories; use a lightweight natural color window treatment. But before you purchase anything new, take a walk around the house, if you love the beach chances are you may already have items that you can use. Add some sparkle with a new light fixture, mirror or towel racks in finishes of chrome, gold and bronze. With limited floor space, look for storage solutions that perform double duty. Shelves with a towel rack provide not only a place to hang pretty towels; it's the perfect place for extra toiletries and accessories. New flooring can add drama however; if this is not currently in the budget an area rug in a bold color or a geometric pattern will do the trick. Of course a complete make over is not always necessary, sometimes just simple changes could be all that's needed. How about a vase of fresh flowers, some new towels, a whimsical piece of art or new window treatments. Have some fun - get creative - and turn that often passed over half-bath into something special. Let it become the jewel in your home decorating projects box. This article is shareware.

How to Paint a Metal Towel Rack | Ehow
How to Paint a Metal Towel Rack | Ehow
When changing your bathroom decor on a budget, you can paint your metal towel racks, rather than replace them, and save some money. In one weekend, you can paint over chrome, stainless steel, brass or wrought iron and create glossy or matte-finished racks of any color that you need. With primers and paints available that bond with metals and inhibit rust, you can make old and out-of-fashion towel racks like brand-new, more easily than ever before. Even in the wet environment of a bathroom, your towel racks will not chip, crack or peel-if you paint them properly.Disassemble the towel rack, if it was put together previously, and set aside any screws or other fasteners.Clean the towel rack with a heavy-duty, degreasing metal cleaner, following the manufacturer's directions. Dip a sponge in the cleaner and rub the rack thoroughly; make sure that the cleaner covers the entire surface area.Rinse the towel rack thoroughly, and let it dry.Remove any loose finish or rust with a wire brush, and sand the area smooth with a sheet of fine, 180-grit sandpaper. Wipe the rack with a clean, dry cloth, to remove any sanding residue.Apply two coats of primer; let the first coat dry completely before applying the second. Be sure to use a primer that is formulated for your specific type of metal. Spray-on primer works best, but if you can't find any, you can apply primer with a sponge paint roller.Spray on one coat of metal paint that is approved for the type of metal you're painting. Allow the paint to dry according to the label instructions, before you reassemble and mount the towel rack.

Shoe Organizers - the Small Space Solution You've Been Looking For
Shoe Organizers - the Small Space Solution You've Been Looking For
Women get an unfair amount of grief for having a lot of shoes. The fact is that nowadays everybody has a lot of shoes. And you should! It isn't like we are Native Americans who are grateful just for a pair of moccasins to get around the woods in. Science has advanced to the point where most shoes are specifically tailored to the activity that you plan on doing while wearing them.Today we have running shoes, walking shoes, skateboard shoes, basketball shoes, hiking boots, slippers, dress shoes, heels, winter boots, rain boots, sandals, aqua socks and more. The list goes on and on and on! Frankly it is all pretty necessary. Most of these shoes are designed so that your body can stay healthy while you are doing a particularly rigorous activity. You need all these shoes.The problem is where do you put them all? Especially if you live with roommates or have a family, you are looking at dozens or even hundreds of shoes! They have the potential to take over the whole house!Luckily there is a wide array of shoe organizers out there to help to solve this increasingly common problem. Here are a few great ways to cut down on the shoe clutter in your house.Melamine Shoe CubeWhen you walk into someone's house for the first time it is usually pretty easy to tell right as you enter the front door whether they have a big family or not. If they do there is bound to be an apocalyptic wasteland of shoes strewn from the doorway as far as the eye can see down the halls and spilling into other rooms.A perfect way to combat this is with the Melamine Shoe Cube. It is an attractive shelf built specifically to store shoes and it is perfect to put right by the front door. The 25 pair size measures 31 ½" x 24" x 12". There is also a 15 pair version that is 19 3/8" x 24" x 12". They are both made of laminated particle board and require some slight assembly.Shoes UnderOf course not everyone wants to display his or her shoes right at the front door. And not every pair of shoes gets enough wear that would warrant them to be within such easy access.For those shoes that you are saving for a special occasion, or that you just can't seem to part with, there is the Shoes Under shoe organizer. Shoes Under is a simple and smartly designed product that allows you to discreetly store your shoes right under your bed or on the closet floor.Shoes Under can hold up to a dozen sandals, sneakers, heels and dress shoes in this light and durable storage space. It has handles on the side and a see-through cover that zips open. Keep your shoes in good shape and out of the way with Shoes Under.Overdoor Shoe RackThere are some people out there for whom space is truly at a premium though. "Oh, you invented something that lets me store stuff under my bed?" they ask. "Well that would have been great before I spent ten years throwing all my junk under there."For the people who normally can't find an inch to spare there is the Overdoor Shoe Rack. This large and convenient rack hangs right over the back of you door. Wait, do you have a mirror hanging on the back of your door? A towel rack? Have you somehow already found another way to hang something on the back of it? Well this rack can also be permanently mounted on any wall.The overdoor shoe rack uses polymer sides and steel rods to hold up to 36 pairs of shoes. There is also a 24 pair rack available.Space Saving Rolling Shoe OrganizerOne of the problems with a lot of shoe organizers is that they account for how you are going to store your shoes and not exactly for how you are going to wear them. Many people start by picking out their outfit and then trying to match a pair of shoes. Now wouldn't it be nice if you had a portable shoe rack that you could roll right over to your full-length mirror for this exact purpose?The Space Saving Rolling Shoe Organizer is the solution to this. It will quickly turn your unsightly pile of shoes into a tower of fantastic options. It can hold up to 28 pairs of shoes easily. Keep it stored in your closet and then wheel it out when it is time to decide what to wear.Part of the reason that people get teased about having a lot of shoes is because they don't have anywhere to put them. But when you suddenly have great storage options like these you can quickly go from being perceived by your friends and family as borderline insane to having them realize you are just incredibly resourceful!

Dépenses libérales sous le feu aux Communes
Dépenses libérales sous le feu aux Communes
OTTAWA-Le nouveau gouvernement libéral souffle trop d'argent sur les coûteuses rénovations de bureaux, dont des centaines de milliers de dollars dépensés par le ministre des Infrastructures, ont accusé les conservateurs mardi. Le député conservateur de l'Alberta, Blaine Calkins, affirme que les libéraux ne semblent pas pouvoir s'aider eux-mêmes en matière de dépenses. "Le bouchon d" émission, c'est le ministre des infrastructures et des collectivités, Qui a dépensé 835 000 $ en rénovations et en peintures», a déclaré Calkins pendant la période de questions. Le ministre de l'Infrastructure, Amarjeet Sohi, dit qu'il a essentiellement dû mettre sur pied un tout nouveau ministère, avec un espace pour son personnel, un sous-ministre et des fonctionnaires. «Nos engagements exigent un ministre dévoué, Un ministère dédié et un DM dédié afin de répondre aux attentes des Canadiens», a répondu Sohi. Cela signifiait un nouveau bureau et un nouveau personnel. «C'est là que les dépenses ont eu lieu. «En dehors des Communes, il a dit que son ministère avait commencé à partager un espace dans un autre département, puis avait déménagé dans un espace vacant dans un autre bâtiment. "C'est un bureau basique, Comme tout autre bureau que vous avez pour les ministres et le personnel», a-t-il déclaré. «Nous devions suivre les directives du Conseil du Trésor», a ajouté Kate Monfette, directrice des communications du ministre. Il n'y a pas de peintures, cependant, a-t-elle ajouté. Calkins a déclaré que les nouveaux ministres avaient dépensé de l'argent pour d'autres choses,Dont 20 000 $ pour des meubles et des télés pour la ministre de l'Environnement Catherine McKenna et 27 $ pour un porte-serviettes pour un autre ministre. "Est-ce que les libéraux pensent vraiment que c'est correct de dépenser 1 million $ pour des télés et des porte-serviettes?" Il a demandé. Calkins s'est également attaqué au ministre des Finances Bill Morneau pour le coût d'un récent voyage. "Il s'est rendu à New York avec trois membres du personnel, tous avec des billets aller-retour coûtant 4 000 $ chacun", a déclaré Calkins. «Quand le ministre réalisera-t-il que l'argent qu'il brûle n'est pas son propre fonds en fiducie, Et commencer à maîtriser ses habitudes de dépenses imprudentes? "Morneau a dit qu'il voulait que les gens sachent ce qui se passe au Canada." Je crois qu'il est important d'aller à l'étranger pour parler aux investisseurs, aux gens qui pourraient investir dans notre pays, pour leur faire savoir ce que nous faisons ici," Il a dit. D'autres documents déposés au Parlement cette semaine couvraient également le coût du voyage du premier ministre Justin Trudeau à Washington en mars. Les conservateurs ont décrié la taille de l'entourage de Trudeau, qui comprenait des ministres, Sa mère et ses documents in-laws.The évaluent le coût total estimé de la visite gouvernementale du 9 au 11 mars à Washington à 257 219,42 $.
