Andrea Mihalik's story is pretty inspiring. She started off with an upholstery book given to her by her husband for Christmas, signed up for classes after then interned for free for four months at BDDW. She is now the owner of Wild Chairy, an upholstery shop in Philadelphia.
She creates one of kind pieces by combining fun fabrics and textiles with old word upholstery techniques and fine earth friendly materials...
If you read our Apartment Therapy feature, you know that one of our my "biggest embarassments" is the condition our hardwood floors especially on the main floor. They're in pretty bad shape - very dull, a lot of water marks and decent amount of scratches. I thought for sure we needed refinishing. Then I came across
For those of you who are not familiar with wood resurfacing, it is basically buffing minor nicks and scratches without sanding away your wood. It is less expensive(only 99cents/sq ft, additional coat is 50 cents/sq ft), time saving and dust free.
We had ours done yesterday and we are very pleased with the result.
(We opted for 2 coats of semi gloss polyurethane and it took him about 5 hours to finish all four rooms. We were told not to step on them for 3-4 hours and to move the furniture back after 24 hours.)
If you are looking to restore your hardwood floors to their original luster(without changing the color of the stain), I highly recommend floor resurfacing!

*I went to JC Penney last Friday to check out Jonathan Adler's Happy Chic line. They are not out yet. I was told end of March or early April (Olga called her local JCP and was told May). It seems like they are revamping the whole store.
New line of products are being introduced... Joe Fresh, Georgina Chapman, Nanette Lepore and William Rast. For the home department, they are also adding Martha Stewart, Michael Graves and Sir Terrance Conran.
I was also surprised to see Mango.
There might be more than one reason to visit JCP now!
