Convertible Sofa Bed/futon Or Real Bed in My Guest Bedroom?

I think you are going to have real trouble finding one - all standard mattress lengths alone are more than 72". Add the frame, and you are looking at at least 80"; take a look at the mattress chart from Woodshred. You are futon would have to use a non-standard mattress length.

2. How can I get cigarette-smoke smell out of a futon mattress?

Febreze like crazy!

3. Dog keeps licking our New futon (The mattress) how to get her to stop?

Dogs do have emotions and unlike humans their nature does not allow them to camouflage what their feelings are. When a dog wags its tail it is an indication of its happiness at the present moment. When a dog licks its master it is a sign of affection and love. Dogs manifest their love and concern for their puppies and their masters by licking and what to them is grooming. A dog that licks a person is manifesting its love for that individual while also trying to care for that individual by cleansing them and this is in fact a display of caring for its master, friends and puppies, etc... A dog will usually lick crevices such as in between your toes, fingers, ears and mouth. It's probably best to avoid the exchange of your sweet dog's saliva because it's grooming nature is an attempt to cleanse and you really do not need to be the receipient of the bacteria that your sweet dog may be delivering into your mouth, albeit, germs are usually most prolific in the average healthy human being inside a person's mouth. The mouth possesses the most efficacy at deflecting the breeding of harmful germs/bacteria, etc... through evolution, since most things enter a human body via a person's mouth, the mouth has built the strongest natural resistance to harmful foreign bodies being able to proliferate in your mouth or get by the anti-bodies in the mouth and throat in order to dwell elsewhere, however, the best defense is to practice good hygiene and avoid allowing your dog's saliva to enter your mouth. If you should happen to share a doggie kiss with your loving pooch, you can take comfort in the fact that your mouth possesses the most germs on a human being, but the best practice would be to wash out your mouth with a good dose of Listerine. A good gargle should ensure complete safety from any dangerous germs setting house in your body

I placed a 1 x 4 under each end of the panel so the panel would sit back a bit from the 4 x 4 leg instead of being flush. The top of the panel and the top of the legs are flush. The next picture will show what I mean! The headboard and footboard assembled. Pretty basic, right? Then, attach the bed rail hooks on each 4 x 4 leg. I attached mine 2-1/2 from the top and as close to the inside edge that I could, in order to leave room for the side rail. Oh my goodness! These are non-mortise bed rail hooks! I struggled with the mortise bed rail hooks I used on our King Size Farmhouse Bed so I was pretty stoked to find these bed rail hooks! Now it was time to attach the bed slat supports. To do this, I laid the 2 x 4 on the inside of the 2 x 10 side rail and placed my 2 x 2 on top so I would know where to attach the 2 x 4. We want the mattress to sit right on top of this platform bed. I used Kreg Clamps and 2-1/2 Deck Plus Screws to attach the bed slat supports. This part was a bit tricky. The bed rail hooks needed to be lined up just right so the bed rail would sit flush with the headboard and footboard. I laid the footboard and headboard on the ground with the hooks attached. Then, I had my husband hold the side rails up against it, where I wanted it to be, and marked the screw holes. I am glad I did it this way because the hooks sit back a bit on the bed rail in order to sit flush. I would not have known that if I had only measured the correct height. The bed rails were pretty easy to attach and it was all flush ... enough! I used Homemade Stain for my Twin Bed. After the bed was stained, I took it apart, laid the pieces on sawhorses, and finished each piece with a coat of wax. I then attached a caster wheel to each leg. After the wax was dry, I took the bed pieces into the guest room and reassembled it. This is where you would measure the inside dimension of your bed so you can cut your bed slats the proper width. I placed the bed slats and side rail blocks where they needed to go. Next, I attached each block to the side rail support by pre-drilling a hole and then used one self-sinking screw in each block. This was a bit tedious as I used my Kreg Clamp on each block to keep it from moving. We are happy with this simple Twin Platform Bed! It was easy and inexpensive to build and should be a good thing to have around when the kids say goodbye to dorm life and rent a room, when they are off at college. Of course, we are also quite happy that our guest will not have to sleep on a mattress, on the floor. How To Make Wood Stain With Common Household Products Fun DIY House Projects You Can Do Too!
Leesa's Sapira Mattress Has Springs but still Comes in a Box
Mattress-in-a-box companies, from Tuft & Needle to Casper, ship foam and latex mattresses to your door for under $900 for a queen size. Most offer a single type, with dimensions being the only thing you can choose from. Leesa is a member of that club, but today it's branching but with a new brand called Sapira. It's supposed to offer a more luxurious mattress that is a hybrid of springs and foam.The queen costs $1,475, $585 more than the 10-inch-thick, all-foam Leesa. It's an inch thicker, too, with a 1.5-inch top layer of high-density foam; a 1.5-inch layer of memory foam; and steel pocket springs in between two, 1-inch layers of stabilizing foam. Pocket springs are encased in their own cloth pouch. With traditional innerspring mattresses, the coils are tied together, so when you lie down, your weight gets transferred across the bed. That means that, in general, you'll be less likely to feel your partner tossing and turning with the pocket spring variety.Related:Nightingale smart home sleep system masks both indoor and outdoor noisesI tried the Sapira out for a couple of nights, and I found this to be very true. Pushing down on one side of the bed left the other side unaffected. I pressed the mattress down about six inches away from my sleeping cat, and he didn't stir.The overall experience of getting the Sapira is pretty similar to the Leesa one. It arrives at your door all boxed up and compressed, and you slice through a few layers of plastic to let it plump up. You'll get 100 days to try out the mattress, and the company will pick it up if you decide not to keep it within that time frame.The Sapira is definitely a dense mattress. The full-size mattress weighs in at 98 pounds, according to the shipping label. Even though it's only an added inch, the Sapira seems thicker than the Leesa. The top layer of foam is certainly soft, but overall the mattress feels pretty firm.Other brands like Helix and Luma have been offering these "hybrid" foam and spring mattresses for a while, and by offering it as a separate, more luxury-minded brand, Leesa can offer another option beyond its single-type-of-firmness mattress.
My Minimalist Wardrobe
Minimalism is very important to me, and not just because of the simplicity of it all. It has helped me distance myself from the world of social conformity, build better relationships, and lessen my addiction to social media. I spend more time getting my work done and less time worrying about whether or not I've got my hands on this season's mom jeans. For those of you who are not really sure what minimalism is beyond owning less things, let me explain. Minimalism goes far past "Less is more." It's a way of limiting yourself to the things that actually provide use, are needed, and improve your life. By owning only what we need, we are abandoning the consumerism our society has adopted and putting that energy toward the things that truly matter. Our family, friends, career, education, and goals become more important than the stuff we've gathered over the years. To cleanse a space is to cleanse a mind.I desire to keep my space simple and clean, yet I want it to be filled with art and nice clothing. I am not a fan of the "plain white button down as a daily outfit" look. I want some variety, but with a limitation on the amount. Here is how I do it.When I began, I easily had 200 pieces of clothing. When I say "pieces of clothing," I include shirts, pants, coats, dresses, scarves, shoes, and bags or purses. One day when I was hanging up clothes, my closet made a very unfriendly creaking sound, and as soon as I turned to investigate, the entire rack was coming off the wall. It was time to let go.As I started getting rid of things, I realized how little I actually wore any of the clothes I owned. I would rotate the same ten tops and three jeans and I only wore one pair of shoes among the eleven pairs I owned. And on top of the massive amount of clothing in my closet, I had a 6-drawer dresser each full of the clothes I never wore. I owned at least five bags, but I could not give you the actual amount because I only ever carried one and the rest meant nothing to me.I follow the general rule that if it does not provide meaning or use in my life, get rid of it. I've been able to follow this… mostly. I still have a hard time getting rid of clothing I do not even want if it still has some use left. I also feel the overwhelming urge to trash everything until I only own two shirts, one pair of pants, and a pair of shoes. Unfortunately, this is not realistic for someone who enjoys a variety and would not want to be caught dead wearing the same thing two days in a row. So, I've gone down to the absolute basics for my own personal style. The climate in my area gets both very hot and very cold, so I have to have a decent amount of clothes for each season. Many days, it starts off cold in the morning and is hot by midday, so I must have clothing that's good for layering. I decided that I had to have at least one outfit for interviews and professional occasions as well as one dress for formal family events. For the most part, deciding what I needed was easy. But the most difficult decisions lied with choosing which items to keep and which to toss out. Every once in a while I make a log of all the clothing I own, track the newest additions as well as the donations, and make sure I am limiting myself to a decent amount of clothing, not going overboard in either direction. Here's what my minimalist closet looks like:Tops: Two flannel shirts, three sweaters, one long-sleeve top, three t-shirts, one blouse, and one gray tank top. Total=11 items.Bottoms: one pair of high-rise jeans, one pair low-rise, one pair of leggings. Total=3 items. Coats: One petticoat, one denim jacket, one blazer, one raincoat, two summer jackets, one work-out jacket. Total=7 items.Shoes: One pair of work shoes, one pair oxfords, two pairs of sneakers, one pair of sandals, one pair of boots. Total=6 items.Dresses: One t-shirt dress, one formal dress, one summer dress. Total=3 items. Accessories: 3 winter scarves, one purse, one book bag. Total=5 items.Overall closet total=35 items.This closet suits me well a good 98% of the time. I find myself occasionally worried about what to wear because I do allow myself to have more options than I probably should. But like I said, I am young! I like options! I like colors! It's okay to be a minimalist and not want stark white pressed shirts only! Color is good. Color is happy. Options are okay.And that's my minimalist wardrobe! My journey began in the beginning of February 2017 and this is where I've gotten in the last year. Much of my inspiration has drawn from the one and only duo The Minimalists. If you have not seen their documentary on Netflix, give it a watch, and you might find it as life changing as I did!Marnie is an LGBTQ poet and storyteller from North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

The tyre consists of a body and the tread. While the body provides and ensures that there is support, the tread provides the traction. In the days before the rubber tyre was invented the tyres were then made up of simply a band of metal fixed and fitted around the wooden wheel so as wear and tear was reduced. Nowadays, most tyres used are that of Pneumatic, which is a body of chords and wires in a doughnut shape in cased in rubber and then filled with compressed air to form the inflatable cushion, these tyres can be found on almost all types of cars, bicycles, motorcycles, trucks, and even aircrafts. Research shows that the first Pneumatic tyre was made in 1887 by John Boyd Dunlop from Scotland, he made it to try and help prevent the headaches that his son was getting from riding his bike on bumpy surfaces. Today over 1 billion tyres are produced annually, globally there are over 400 tyre factories, and the 3 main top makers take up 60% of the global share! So, why are keeping your tyres in good condition so important? Your tyres work hard - cushioning you from bumps, maintaining responsive steering and most importantly allowing you to stop quickly if needed. As one of your vehicles most important features, manufacturers will have carefully selected your tyres from the top makers in the market. They will be chosen for their reliability, performance, and safety, and will be wisely selected to suit your new or used car . However, constant
Decorating with Red Living Room Furniture
Red living room furniture is the perfect solution if you are sick of the same neutral couches that all of the furniture stores have. You might have bought one of these daring pieces a few years ago when they were trendy and now you don't know what to do with it. This style and color of furniture can transition into a lot of different looks if you know how to decorate with it. Here are a few tips for decorating with red living room furniture.Red Living Room FurnitureCoaster 900335 Vinyl Accent Chair, RedAmazon Price: $164.00 $118.99 Buy Now(price as of Aug 4, 2013)Keep It NeutralKeep the rest of your room neutral. You can easily go overboard when you start off with red living room furniture. You might be so excited that you want more of your favorite color in the room. This is where you can really go wrong and create a design disaster. In fact you might not even like your favorite colors when it's all said and done. Instead find ways to compliment red. Let the new furniture be the star. Go with neutral colored walls. This will also give your eyes a place to rest in the room so it doesn't feel like your retinas are burning.Bring the color in through more organic and natural means. This doesn't have to be in your face. There are a lot of leather tones that have a rich brownish red tone to them. This is a more subtle way of getting your favorite color in the space. Red undertones make the room feel warm. You could also stain your fireplace mantle mahogany and install new rich, hardwood floors. This ensures that your furniture has something to relate to. You don't necessarily have to do a theme room; just put together a well though out design plan.Red Coffee TableLexMod Noguchi Triangle Coffee Table 1/2 Glass Red BaseAmazon Price: $910.00 $291.99 Buy Now(price as of Aug 4, 2013)Try a Tuscan ThemeWork within a larger theme. For a Tuscan look you could paint the walls yellow and bring in your favorite artwork featuring the Italian countryside. This artwork often features stucco houses with red tile roofs so it will really tie all of your colors together. Red is also a staple color in modern design. You might not need to invest in all new red furniture. You could just buy one red chair. Keep the lines sleek and modern; no old recliners here. The red for this style needs to be a cherry color so it's bold and daring. Then you can just use it with your existing white, black, brown or gray couch. This will save you money but also means that you won't have to commit to spending a large portion of your decorating budget on something you could easily tire of. Colorful accents will blend right in.Go ModernRed living room furniture was popular a few years ago but now people are favoring more neutral colors of sofa. Part of this has to do with the fact that microsuede is so easy to clean and oftentimes just comes available in taupe especially if you're shopping at an outlet store. However, you can find this in muted terra cotta tones or brick red colors. This will almost never be in a true red tone because of the nature of the fabric. This will be a more updated fabric choice and cheaper too. Paint your walls gray to accent this contemporary vibe. It also helps to tone down the bold furniture color. Plus it updates an older living room set by using a trendy paint color.Red living room furniture doesn't have to stick out like a sore thumb. You can also go retro. In retro styling they used white walls and pops of colors; but of course the pops of color were more dated colors. Red can be a cheerful update to this design style. It's just a matter of having a clear design direction and being able to incorporate the furniture into an overall theme or idea. It also allows you to decorate with either black or turquoise as an accent color. Since this is such a bold palette you should use this on your window curtain choices or your accent pillows. It's just too saturated to use as a wall color. This allows you to get your favorite color and a room that you can still live in.
