3. What are some good vegetarian things to eat at a typical college dining hall?

Vegetarian eating on campus (i anticipate we are talking approximately on-campus meal plans or eating) could be confusing based up on the college you pass to. i've got got here upon that asking for vegetarian techniques can help.

9. What Size Dining Set Will Fit in My 11-by-12 Room?

The first thing to decide is how many people you want to be able to seat in your room. Ideally, a dining room that is 11-by-12 will fit a table that accommodates four to six people comfortably. Square and round tables are the best choices for a room this size. Choosing a square table allows you to play up various rug sizes underneath, as well as height options. Choose a pub-height table for a more dramatic feel and to elevate the space. A standard-height table that seats six allows for the option of alternate seating, such as benches on the sides and high-back chairs at the head and the foot. If you prefer a round table, pair it with square or rectangular rugs to emphasize the overall shape of the room. Round tables with optional leaves to be pulled out if needed give you more table space for parties and holiday dinners. Regardless of the size and shape you choose, allow for enough room to walk around the table and pull the chairs out comfortably. At least 30 inches' clearance around the table allows for people seated to feel at ease, though a distance of 48 inches is preferable.

How Do I Get the White Stain From Water Off of My Wood Dining Table?
How Do I Get the White Stain From Water Off of My Wood Dining Table?
If this is a genuine wood taple top, and not a laminate, then the 'stain' is actually excess moisture in the finish... and its pretty easy to take care of... Just take a hair dryer, and on low heat setting, gently wave it back and forth over the 'stain'. The heat will cause the excess moisture in the finish to evaporate. Do not let the blow dryer remain blowing at one area too long, or it will soften the finish. There are chemicals you could use to work on this stain, but Ive found the hair dryer to work pretty well... I can normally have a stain like this out, in a matter of minutes. Hehhe... just be careful not to touch the surface til after it has cooled! Good Luck!1. Should I get rid of dining table?So where would you sit to eat? I say keep the table and chairs or you can send them to us since we have a dining room but no table and chairs. Just kidding. Keep it2. ideas for centerpiece for dining table? what's on yours?I opt for candles in cool modern holders3. Do you eat regularly at your dining table anymore, or just eat in front of the TV?When i got married. My wife and i ate in front of the tv. When we had our first born child. From that day onwards we sit at the dinner table every night.4. Building a large dining table and wondering if my design is strong/structurally sound enoughThe main thing that I can see (apart from the bracing being a bit overkill) is that you probably want some small braces at the top of the legs where they meet the apron / top, in order to stop sideways wobble.A bridle (not bridal) joint for the legs is probably a good choice of joint, but if you want this table to last for years and years then some side bracing of the legs would not go amiss5. What would make a nice dining table centerpiece?Not sure how long they keep, but an attractive glass bowl can be filled with lemons, to look nice and smell terrific. Good luck!6. How do I train my cat to not get on the dining table?there kittens theyll do that till the older7. How can I go about making a simple dining table?The white rings are damage to the varnish. You could try stripping the varnish, and either waxing the table and leaving it unvarnished, or re-varnishing. Polish is a suface treatment. Modern polishes often contain silicone to give that slick, "clean" feeling and a very brilliant shine. Wax has to be applied to the untreated surface and worked in to give a deep glow to the wood itself. Stain is what it says: a permanent colour. You can take a cheap pine or deal table and apply a dark "walnut" stain to make the wood look like something it's not. But stain by itself wo not shine. Varnish seals the surface, giving a glassy finish and protecting the wood somewhat. But it wo not defend the wood from scratches, abuse (now called "distress") or heat. Putting a hot container on a varnished surface "shocks" the varnish and causes the white marks--like when you get a blister from a burn and the skin turns white.8. What do you have as a center piece on your dining table?A large cream colored candle sitting on top of a square mirror... very pretty when lit9. i just bought a brand new solid oak dining table from a reputable, european family owned business....?That condition you describe sounds very much like the wood is swelling from moisture. Has anyone spilled something that was not wiped up and seeped into the surface? Do you live in a place with high humidity? Try placing a heavy item on the raised place for a few days and see if it will flatten out. If the company is reputable, you were not ripped off. If the wood has warped, it is because of the conditions in your home. Best wishes10. What would be a Good Centrepiece for a Dining Table?depends on the season, what you are cooking and if it's for a special occasion. I've always liked a fat, short bouquet of flowers that are bright, colourful and that you can actually see over
Free Furniture If Red Sox Win World Series
Free Furniture If Red Sox Win World Series
A Boston-area retailer offered to refund the price of any mattress, dining room table, sofa or bed bought during an April promotion if the Red Sox were to win the World Series.About 30,000 pieces of furniture were bought during the season-opening deal at Jordan's Furniture. The store took out insurance so it won't lose too big if Boston goes all the way.So with the Red Sox and the Colorado Rockies now facing off in the World Series, some of the couch potatoes watching from home are rooting to win the very couches they're sitting on.Nate McKinnon is one of them. The decor in his bedroom says "Red Sox fan." The furniture says "25-year-old bachelor on a budget." With one exception.After years of sleeping on futons and second-hand beds, McKinnon now owns a quality mattress - with a pillow top."Each of the springs is in its own pocket," McKinnon says. "It makes it supposedly so that you don't disturb your sleep partner. I don't have a sleep partner, but if I did they wouldn't be disturbed." McKinnon paid $508 for the mattress, but if the Red Sox win the fall classic, he'll get the money back. He bought it in April as part of the Jordan's Furniture promotion. On the last possible day, McKinnon bought the mattress. That afternoon, he went to a Red Sox game at Fenway Park. That's where buyer's remorse kicked in."I felt like a total chump. I'm sitting there, you know, I'm just like: Did I just get suckered into something? And then they lose, and I'm like: Ugh, oh gosh!" McKinnon says.Now the people who feel like chumps are the ones who did not buy during the promotion.Curt Nickisch reports from member station WBUR

Can I stain without sanding ?Most likely there is a coat of lacquer, varnish or polyurethane on top of it,. If this is the case you will have to atleast sand if not strip the finish off prior to re-staining it. Do not use mineral spirits at all!

Mix 1/2 lacquer thinner and 1/2 denatured alcohol together soak 000 steel wool in it and scrub it really good. Let it dry thoroughly sand lightly and it will be ready to stain. Be careful not to over sand, you can burn through the veneer easily. If stripping always wear gloves and a mask and only use in a well ventilated area

One of the most unique homes in Britain is up for sale as a 720-year-old converted court house is put on the market for £525,000.It's not often that you can watch family arguments unfold from your very own raised gallery or usher off noisy house-guests to your own cell block, but aGrade I listed eight-bedroom home in Caernarfon, Wales, is offering just that.Once a magistrates' court and town hall, the incredible property comes complete with many of its original features and is a stone's throw fromCaernarfon Castle.Residents are greeted with imposing stone pillars as they walk up their front steps before striding into a lounge area that is so huge it dwarfs its furniture.The lounge, once the courtroom, still retains the grandiose and drama of its former life of law and order, with its public gallery, decked with rows of chairs and decorated with a gold handrail, looming ominously over-head.While the room could leave homeowners with criminally expensive heating bills during winter, the space's ornately decorated domed ceilings and deep bay windows are characteristics that few properties across the country can boast.The room even has the court's wood paneled screen where the guilty would be hauled off to the cells or a prison van.Other reminders of the building's former life include three cells, an interview room and a prison guard's office.The courthouse also comes with a a patio style garden, kitchen, dining room, a bunker, two bathroom, six toilets and two of the bedrooms come with en-suites.According to the website British Listed Building, the former court became a listed building in 1953 because it is 'an exceptional work of C19 civic architecture, forming the principal component of a group of public buildings including the police station and former jail, and for its contribution to the setting of Caernarfon Castle.'

How to Use Restaurant Tables and Chairs, the Dining Room Is Not Simple
Living walls are a great big live trend in architecture today on the grounds that, in our traffic-choked concrete cities, we need all the living, breathing greenery we can get. When properly managed, a tall building in particular, can hike up its eco credentials as well as look extra spectacular and less severe with the addition of spills of lush verdant foliage spilling down from above.Living green walls were formally thought up as a deliberate design feature by an Illinois professor of landscaping, Stanley Hart White, in 1938. The globe-trotting trendy French botanist Patrick Blanc is today's most famous vertical gardener thanks to his liaisons with top architects in cities all over the world. Particularly well known are his green walls at the Musee du Quai Branly in Paris.In reality ordinary people grew plants up the walls of their homes from the beginning of time, either for eating (raspberries come to mind) or for pure decoration, with the help of rambling roses or woodbines.The owners of a severe 1970s-looking home, or one with dull render, know that nothing improves the look of the property more than a coating of nature's green and fluttering insulation.There are all kinds of options.Ivy has the advantage of being evergreen although its prising suckers can damage mortar joins over time. There's jasmine for a fragrant perfume (if you buy the right versions) and clematis is perfect for a seasonal colour explosion, particularly useful around porches.There's the eponymous Wisteria with its extraordinary deep purple hanging lozenges and Russian vine if you want swathes of snowy white blossoms.You can change the colour of your house five times in the year with the wonderful Virginia creeper, a soft bright green coloured leaf which turns red then orange then yellow then brown shrub with spectacular effect every autumn through to winter. Gardeners will also know how utilising the walls of the house can lend great depth of field to a suburban patch by using the walls to provide height.Few homes in Dublin show how effective looking green walls can be than Bremac, a seaside homestead buried in a thoroughly private and leafy site off St George's Avenue in Killiney, Co Dublin. The aerial shot above says it all about the location while the photograph of the front shows why Bremac must be one of Dublin's 'greenest' properties. With most of the house covered on one side, the upright planting includes varieties of flowering Clematis and the queen of all the verticals, the purple Wisteria.The owners are keen on the garden which spans almost an acre and the planting rises in steps from the low-shaped topiary mixed through with looser planting, to the living house walls and ultimately to the mature high trees surrounding the site. The mix of plants, sown mostly by the previous owner provide blooming that is almost year-round. It also helps that the property is laid out in an enwrapping L-shape. Bremac has far more to offer however than just some upstanding green credentials.The house is located on south-facing slopes which run right down the sea at Killiney and if you don't fancy an outdoor dip at the spectacular Hawk Cliff bathing area nearby, you can do it all indoors in heated water in Berac's own indoor pool. This is contained in a pool room with stout timber beaming work that is quite spectacular in its woodcraft.The accommodation is six times the size of an average semi at 6,190 sq ft and includes an entrance hallway with wood panel ceilings and solid oak flooring. There's a living room with an open fireplace and huge windows overlooking said gardens.The dining room has views of the Sugar Loaf mountaiun and the fitted kitchen comes with an Aga (it's green!). There's a family room, a utility room and a home office.The white framed conservatory with matching floor tiles provides more indoor visual vantage points to the garden. The house comes with four bedrooms which are all double in size. There's a family bathroom and two of those bedrooms have their own en-suites with a walk-in wardrobe off the master chamber.Then comes the home's own swimming pool complex. Apart from the aforementioned pool (there are three sets of sliding glass doors to the garden beside it), you have your own sauna room.If the equivalent of six semi-ds aren't enough, planning permission has been obtained in the past to open up the attic for an additional master bedroom suite and two studies.These would have improved views, raised again on a site which is already elevated. The property is entranced off St George's Avenue along a sweeping driveway that arrives at an oyster-coloured gravel apron to its upwardly mobile garden.St George's Ave, Killiney, Co Dublin €2.575mSavills (01) 2885011Indo Property

For more how to guides and tips head to Wood Review TV or checkout www.woodreview.com.auFor this table I wanted to showcase a beautiful, honey coloured piece of macrocarpa on a contrasting black minimalist base. I was hoping to create a 'floating in space' look. I like tables that have just a leg at each corner, without a low under-structure that can get in the way of people's feet and legs when they're seated. For this reason the base is of a conventional design.I relocated to Auckland, New Zealand from Perth around three years ago. I had and now have another small workshop and I've had to give consideration how to make the most of the space I had. I've written in AWR previously about the 'space-saving' workbench and machine stands I designed and built. I don't have room or the need for large machines, but it is possible to still make larger items by outsourcing some processes.Frame jointsMortise and tenon is the traditional choice for rail to leg constructions. Without a hollow chisel mortiser or the desire to handcut these joints I opted to use a domino tool and make the frame with loose tenon joints. There are other ways to effect loose tenons, however the domino tool proved highly effective as it took me only an hour to cut the 64 mortises required.Most table rails are around 90 x 25mm in size. To achieve adequate strength using domino joints I increased the rail thickness to 50mm so four dominos could be used for each joint. This also increased the gluing surface to further strengthen a frame that now supports a 2250mm long top. The tenons need to be spaced at least 20mm and 10mm apart. The legs are 90 x 90mm with 3mm corner radii and the aprons are 4mm offset from the outer face of the legs.Top treatmentThe macrocarpa slab needed to have the bark removed and the edge cleaned up. Local Titirangi carver Kim Carati crafted a smooth and sculptural edge.I'm no expert with winding sticks and a smoothing plane and I definitely didn't want the platter rocking as the Christams turkey was carved, so it was off to a nearby cabinetmaker who put the slab through his Powermax thicknesser two or three times.Fortunately the rough sawn slab was not warped or twisted which made this easy. This machine has a spiral cutterhead followed by two oscillating sanding drums that finished the slab to 180 grit. Back in the workshop I ran over the surface with my random orbital sander at 240 grit.A dining table needs a durable finish and I also wanted a glossy look which I was not confident of producing. And so I was off again, this time to the local furniture spray finishing service that has controlled environments for spraying and drying finishes to ensure an even, mirror finish.Sixteen custom made buttons secured the top to slots cut into the base aprons, positioned to allow movement.Cutting ListTop 2250 x 900 x 50 Legs 4@ 712 x 90 x 90 Rails 2@ 1800 x 105 x 50, 2@ 520 x 105 x 90For more how to guides and tips head to Wood Review TV or checkout www.woodreview.com.au
Is There a Way to Remove Permanent Marker From a Dining Room Table?
Is There a Way to Remove Permanent Marker From a Dining Room Table?
Is there a way to remove permanent marker from a dining room table?To remove a permanent marker stain from wood furniture, there are a few options available. You could try WD-40, non-gel toothpaste, or possibly baby wipes. Also, I´d suggest a bit of alcohol on a white cloth or paper towel, or visiting an office supply store to get a commercial felt pen ink remover. I would also recommend trying the method you choose on an inconspicuous area of the wood first to ensure that it doesn´t damage the finish— — — — — —my new dining room table color does not match. It is oak and glossy finish do I have to sand it before I paint?Yes you need to varnish it. There are matte finishes available. Remove the wax, sand any stains and put at least 3 coat of finish on the table. Table cloths are the best especially with children— — — — — —How many chairs at the dining room table do you have?6 and a baby high chair— — — — — —Making house family hotel for thanksgiving tips?Make sure you have plenty of fluffy fresh towels. Have nice pillows for everyone, not just couch pillows or old cast-offs. Have some extra toothbrushes on hand in case anyone forgets their own brush. If everyone does remember theirs, you can keep them for when you need to replace your current brush, and if anyone forgets, they will really appreciate having one there. Set up an afternoon appetizer and drink buffet, so that people can sit and relax and chat. This does not have to be time-consuming, you can buy pre-made appetizers and buy a large bottle of wine, plus some sodas and juices, and set them out on a buffet or the dining room table, or a card table in the living room. Have some battery-operated alarm clocks so that guests can set their own wake-up time. Set out bowls and spoons, boxes of cereal, fruits, bread by the toaster, etc. the night before, so that early risers can feed themselves breakfast. You can set up the coffee pot as well so that the first person up can just flip it on when they go into the kitchen. Have fun! Try to get everything set up before the guests arrive so that you can enjoy everyone's company, rather than running around the whole time. Plan a menu, go to the grocery store, do all your laundry before they come. Then you can sit and relax with your guests and enjoy the nice atmosphere as well.— — — — — —Tips for redoing a room?Neat idea for a room, it sounds pretty good already. For the walls, get some tropical or floral pictures or make your own wall art. Maybe paint some tress or clouds on the walls. For the floor, get a medium sized blue rug that looks like a pool of water floating in the middle of sand (with the tan carpet). You can also find some fake trees at Wal-Mart or big lots for about $15. One in the corner would be neat. As for the entertainment center and drawers, do not paint them a color, but leave them wood to go with the theme. You can get a wood stainer though to fix the one drawer that is scratched. Or go pick out a new piece of fabric to throw over it. Depending on the size, have you thought about buying a place mat (like a cloth one that usually is on the dining room table to set plates on), I've done it a few times on small surfaces and it looks really good. A couple of lawn chairs, or those round chairs would be a nice touch, and add some more furniture. Get a little table, too. It does not have to be high-end, just find some plastic ones, or some wood ones on sale. Do not know how big your room is though, you might want to get just one so the room does not look cramped. Also, check out a lot of thrift stores and flea markets. You can usually find some neat stuff piled in with the junk, or at least get some ideas. Its the best place to find little what-nots or other decorative pieces.
A Design That Shines
A Design That Shines
If there's one thing a Montreal duplex lacks it's light, especially on the main floor, and the building on de la Mentana St. was no exception. "It was typical - very dark, with a long corridor and rooms on both sides, windows only at the front and back," said Yannick Laurin, one of the trio at La SHED Architecture asked by the homeowner to convert the space into a single-family house.They delivered a light-filled, uncluttered two-storey home, contemporary in design yet warmed by the use of classic materials - wood, brick and tile - with a splash of colour to add a joyous note and a long skylight to welcome the sunshine. Last December, they accepted a coveted Grands prix du design award for the residence.Bringing light to the interior space was the priority, so the middle part of the house is an open space right up to the ceiling where a three-by-thirteen-foot skylight brings in natural light. "It gives brightness all day," Laurin said.They organized the space with sliding doors, keeping the mitoyen walls that create the existing structural axis. "We wanted to make the link between the two floors, so we aligned all the walls and the openings," he said. "You see the continuity of the openings and the walls, upstairs and down, to give a better relation between the floors."[nggallery id=So while the dining area is separated from the living room by sliding doors, a similar door closes off an interior glass wall in the bedroom and also closes the bedroom door. "Panels move to reconfigure the space and to give levels of privacy," he said.To brighten the picture, an apple green wall integrates the dining room and the stairs, which are tucked behind it. "It gives a frontier between the public floor and the more private floor," Laurin said, "so when you pass this threshold you get into the more private space."While the main floor is completely open, on the second level the homeowner is able to slide grey walls shut for privacy, while the oversize windows and skylight bring in the light. Some of this filters into the windowless bathroom, a clever configuration of grey glass mosaic against white painted brick walls, its height aligned with the base of the long, narrow interior window.Set against pure white fixtures, the grey mosaics line walls and floor. Here, there is no threshold into the shower, with its central drain, only a mosaic-tiled divider to separate it from the bathtub.In keeping with their use of what they describe as "true" materials, the architects have used varnished natural maple floors throughout - long, narrow boards installed in a lengthwise direction. Most rooms are painted white, with dark grey walls used as elements of separation.Because they wanted to make the most of natural light, Laurin and his partners installed a floor-to-ceiling window at the back of the house, framed in black, and kept the ceilings high, at 91⁄2 feet. Light is the element that connects this room to the dining area, where the 19-foot ceiling is crossed by the long, narrow skylight, the same width as the bathroom doorway below and the kitchen doorway below that. "This house, like most of our projects, is all about alignment," Laurin said. "It makes space calm; there's no confusion about anything."Interior furnishings are a combination of 1950s and other textured pieces. The heavy wood table in the dining room is surrounded by Charles Eames chairs from Herman Miller overhung with a huge textured painting in shades of white. In the living room, where the garden's greenery spills into the room, the homeowners have placed a signature Charles Eames chair, this one in moulded plywood.The architects' use of natural materials for a cool, minimalist effect is most evident in the light-filled kitchen. "It's simple and not too busy with textures and colours," Laurin said. Here, a central island, cupboards and cabinets are all made of the same natural maple used on the floor, while the uncovered brick wall is neutralized with a white paint finish so "it still has the texture and light without too much of a country look.In order to show off the brick wall and to keep that light feeling, they designed horizontal cabinetry that integrates the hood over the flush-mounted cooktop. All countertops are made of Corian, the medium of choice because it's white and easy to maintain, but mostly because it's just 1⁄2-inch thick, and gave them that thin, light effect they wanted for the room. Plus, they were able to glue the joints so that they couldn't be seen."This is different from quartz and stone where you always have joints," he said. "And there are no drawer handles; we cut out an opening that is integrated into the shape of the drawers."Massive amounts of storage space for pantry and cooking implements are made available with a side wall of white lacquered cupboards, alongside appliances that form an area of stainless steel. "We wanted to integrate the appliances," Laurin said, "so we built panels of stainless steel drawers that create one block with the appliances."The thin-cut maple island and Corian countertop, with room for modern bar stools below, faces into the dining area - but not entirely. "Part of the island is separated by the grey wall, so it allows you to leave things on the island without it being seen in the dining room," Laurin said. "It makes it an open kitchen but more separate and private."From the kitchen, a doorway leads to the courtyard deck, designed to remove the limits between interior and exterior. Planks on the wooden deck in the courtyard are laid in the same direction as the flooring in the house and at the same height. "You're at the same level so you don't have to step up or down; you make a really good connection," he said.[nggallery id=The old brick on the exterior needed a lot of patching, so to avoid redoing the brick they painted it white, giving it a neutrality that hides those imperfections. Outside, they linked all the openings with black painted cedar planks like a kind of exterior panelling, so it feels like the house is open to the terrace, Laurin said. "We worked with alignment so the width of the upstairs window is aligned with the width of one side of the kitchen door, so the kitchen doors are not symmetrical. Making them un- symmetrical cuts the references, makes it more interesting," he said.Beyond the wood patio, square cut stones have been laid in the grass and the small green space already has several trees and will soon be full of soft, natural plantings.This spring, Laurin said, "with the big window in the living room, we will fill the back with green that you will see as soon as you enter the place."
