Replate Metals To Update A Tub

Add a rich look with warm metals.

Want the look of an authentic clawfoot tub without the cost of refinishing a vintage model? This new cast iron tub mimics a vintage look after it was handpainted a rich, matte black and the stainless steel feet were plated in patinated brass.

Wrap A Box Spring

How to give a bed a fresh summer look.

Joel Bray wraps a box spring in a light-patterned bedsheet or double-wide fabric instead of using a weighty-looking bedskirt. If you want to make the look permanent, staple loose sheet ends underneath the box spring to fix in place.
