SOME OF THE CUSTOMER REVIEWS ABOUT THIS KID'S HOME STORE [ SAMPLE ]
1) My son (18 months) absolutely loves his couch. He even understands how to fold it out. He's always on it, eating, watching tv, playing. Name it, he's sitting on his couch. :)
My son received this for his 1st birthday and he absolutely LOVES it. It is the perfect size for him. Now that he is learning to walk, he loves climbing over it and rolling on the cushion. It has a good amount of cushion which is a lifesaver for my clumsy little man. He has figured out how to pull the cushion to make it lie flat and that is the only way he wants it right now. If I fold it back to a sofa, he is right behind me pulling it back out again. As he gets older, it will be nice for him to have a place to sit in the living room that he can get himself off and on. Plus, the colors and characters are adorable!!

SOME OF THE CUSTOMER REVIEWS ABOUT THIS BOOK [ SAMPLE ]
1) First of all I did not purchase this book from Amazon, got it elsewhere. I have been through enough furniture refinishing projects to testify that this is wonderful for the beginner. I wish I had this type of help when I stripped down my first piece 33 years ago. Back then I learned as I went.
So if you are new and ready to get started redoing furniture, do yourself a favor you will thank yourself for over and over, and absolutely get this book. The author takes you step by step from how to select a piece of furniture that is going to be worth all the sweat you are going to pour into it to selecting proper materials and products for stripping, scraping, wiping away the old finish. He includes drying times and tells how to make necessary repairs to the furniture, how and what to use to make those repairs.Also included are tips on how to add an old look, or shabby chic, distressed look, how to make your pieces look hand painted, and much more.
I love that the importance of sanding is stressed, depending on what kind of finish you want, sanding, from rough to baby smooth is a process and the author is good to stress the importance. And it is important, because you are going to have to live with the way the furniture feels when you touch it for as long as you own the piece, so listen and don't be tempted to take shortcuts, you will thank yourself for the extra work and patience you invested into the piece, every time you touch it.
Finish is covered well , as it is as important as sanding. The author prefers polyurethane finish, which leaves a nice tough finish that resists spills and stains very well. Personally, I prefer lacquer in a satin finish but this is a labor of love, because to get a wonderful finish takes many coats with lots of sanding in between each coat and lacquer takes a long drying period and is nasty to breath.
There are many excellent ideas and great how to , step by step, instructions here. There are also a fair amount of resources included.
I bought this book for my daughter who is just starting to buy old pieces for their new home, as newlyweds this is the way to save money. Plus by buying her the book, I get out of having to help her learn the processes. Wish I would have had all this help and great ideas when I was doing this kind of stuff 30 some odd years ago.
What a great instruction book for the would-be furniture sprucer-upper. From tools to techniques, this book covers so many aspects of re-finishing and repairing wooden pieces. Bar Blair takes you, step-by-step, through the process of removing the old and then applying the new. My husband and get such a kick out of turning someone's kicked-to-the-curb discard, into a proud member of the family. My kids have all come around and asked "Hey, what are you going to do with that when it's finished?" I tell them I'll put it in the will, but they'll have to wait til then!The author also gives good insights as to what to look for in construction of a piece, what it will take to restore it, and when to walk away. There are costs involved, and I have found myself occasionally paying too much for what it will be worth in the end. All supplies cost money, especially if you are into the new milk and chalk paints and the wax finishes, which she also covers.. This is a good beginner's book, but there are tips that even the more advanced amateur will find helpful.

SOME OF THE CUSTOMER REVIEWS ABOUT THIS NEW HOUSE SUPPLIES [ SAMPLE ]
1) Fantastic product ... works wonders .. I love it .. your price is great too ... thanks so much for selling a product that does what it says it will ..my furniture looks absolutely wonderful .. I'm very very pleased indeed .. I have a huge chocolate brown leather sectional .. it was so easy ... a little goes a long way .. doesn't leave the furniture shiny which I prefer ..Buy this product .. you won't regret it .
There is a lot of leather in my house and it definitely needs it's own special treatment and not the regular cleaning supplies that I use on everything else. Between our office and our living room we have three leather couches. Our dining chairs have leather seats and my husband and I both have leather jackets. I guess you can call us leather lovers!
The couches in our house really take a beating with three kids! I was eager to try the Leather Nova products there first since all three were in dire need of a cleaning!
The office doubles as a den/tv/playroom for the kids so that ouch definitely takes the most abuse and needed a cleaning the most. I started with the Leather Cleaner using the included pad to clean with and following all the directions. I really liked that it was a spray bottle because it makes for quicker and more efficient cleaning in my opinion! I immediately loved the smell. It gives leather that classic leather smell but even better.
I followed up the cleaner with the conditioner to finish it off and give it that new, fresh, clean look.
While I loved the results, it seems like double the work to use the cleaner and conditioner separately so for the next couches I used the Conditioner and Cleaner in one! I'm a busy mom who barely has time to clean so anytime I can skip a step, you can bet I will! I really didn't notice a difference in the finished results. I'm sure it's like using shampoo and conditioner separately and then using a combined product. Your hair is never conditioned as well as if you had done it separately but it gets the job done. When it comes to my cleaning though, if I don't really notice an obvious difference, it's fine with me!
I am loving the Leather Nova products and will use the two separate ones if I have the time but am glad to have the cleaner and conditioner in one for a quick job! It's easy to use, smell great and leaves your leather looking beautiful!

SOME OF THE CUSTOMER REVIEWS ABOUT THIS CONTEMPORARY MODERN WALL DECOR ( SEASONAL AND WALL ) [ SAMPLE ]
1) Thank you for your comment, David. Since there is no Turner's authentic painting available under $10 million in the past two years, experts told me it is better not to ask under $300,000 for this piece, they believe this one could be real stuff by Turner. Thanks again.
Like a vision, she emerged from the sea. Her powers over men and gods alike were legendary. She captivated hearts and imaginations for centuries. Now, Lalique has immortalized Venus, the unrivaled goddess of love and beauty, in a single block of satin-finished Black crystal. Femininity was always one of Rene Lalique's favorite themes. This great artist of Art Deco, also referred to as the Rodin of transparencies, often used the female figure to adorn his creations. Lalique takes up with this tradition of sculpture. Intended for collectors, this statue is a sublimated interpretation of the beauty and love goddess, featuring grace and sensuality. True artistic prowess, the Grande Nue Venus is entirely modeled in black satin-finished crystal. Her refined and powerful curves are stunningly realistic, which highlights the extraordinary capacity of Lalique Glass Masters to give crystal both shape and life, by serving creation and emotion through their traditional know-how.

SOME OF THE CUSTOMER REVIEWS ABOUT THIS BEDDING SETS [ SAMPLE ]
1) ****Update - April 2015 ****
This mattress is still holding up very well. I no longer use it as frequently as when I first received the mattress but when guests come to stay over I take it out of the storage bag and blow it up without a problem. I am still quite pleased with the purchase.
I got my Soundasleep air mattress last week. Given my living situation in the past year I have been using air beds quite a bit and have had (unfortunately) more than a few models. So far I have been pretty impressed with this one.
The first night I slept on it was great. The mattress blew up very quickly (you just flip the switch and it automatically starts inflating – no valves to open or close). The bed is the right height for me and has a nice soft top to it. I put some sheets on it and slept like a dream.
I did notice that the mattress seemed to lose a small amount of air over the course of the second night. I thought there might be a leak in the product and reached out to customer support via their website. Having owned my fair share of air mattresses over the years my experience with these companies is that they do not want to be bothered after a sale – basically you are on your own after purchase.
I got a support rep on my first call after only a couple minutes, and she seemed eager to help me. The rep said that the mattresses are made from PVC, a plastic material that naturally stretches, and that stretching was normal during the first couple of uses (evidently SoundAsleep does something during production to minimize this stretching). The rep suggested that this natural stretching was likely the cause and that I should deflate the mattress fully, reinflate one more time and then try it for one more night. She seemed very certain that would solve the issue and the mattress would remain firm once it was fully stretched out. She even offered to follow up with me in a few days to make sure everything was working normally. The prompt and helpful support was refreshing and a nice change from the normal customer support these days.
I followed her advice and the mattress did stay very firm the following evening. I followed up with an email letting her know it worked as suggested and within 15 minutes the same rep responded that she was happy to help out.
As a Prime member, and frequent Amazon user, I am a huge fan of outstanding customer service. The fact that the rep was so thorough really made me feel good about the purchase. I’ll definitely update this review in the future but I am sold on this product today and would recommend it to friends and family.
This was a big purchase for me and my review is pretty thorough:
PACKAGING: The air mattress with built-in pump arrived well packaged in a large, sturdy, cardboard box with the company logo. As the air mattress itself is heavy I appreciated the durable cardboard support and inner cardboard lining which preventing me from slicing into the mattresses when opening the package. I have made that mistake in the past.
TOP UP: All air mattresses stretch over the initial few inflations. My first night with the product I feel as though the PVC stretched slightly, but not nearly as much as other brands I have used in the past - perhaps 5% at most. Nonetheless, the first night I needed a small top-off from the built-in pump for about 10 seconds to get back to my desired firmness.
MOTOR: This air mattress with the built-in pump is very user friendly compared to other models I have used over the years. The electric cord plugs into any standard wall unit and inflates quickly. I have timed the inflation at exactly 4 minutes. I tested this inflation over 4 separate cycles, and each one reached my firmness level in the same time. I have slept on other brands (Intex) that inflate in 3 minutes but that brand continuously leaks air over the course of the night. The Soundasleep motor is foolproof in its simplicity. A clockwise turn inflates the mattress and a counterclockwise turn deflates the mattress. They claim the motor is quieter than other brands. While this may be true, the motor still generates a moderate amount of noise when inflating, comparable, yet slightly quieter than a vacuum.
CONSTRUCTION: The manufacturer describes the mattress as standard queen sized, and after using my trusty measuring tape, I found this to be accurate." The top of the mattress has an extra layer of material which has a micro fiber feel. Standard queen sized sheets fit on the mattress decently well, although after continued use I noticed them starting to fall off. The 40 coil air beam construction adds smooth and comfortable support. These are not real coils like a traditional mattress but the points in the mattress where the material is welded together. The air mattress remained very flat all night without any bulging or sinking in particular areas.
COMFORT: This mattress has now been slept on 4 times - twice alone until my traditional mattress was delivered, once with my wife, and once by a friend. The mattress exceeded my comfort expectations. The 19-inch height made it feel like I was sleeping on a traditional box spring bed, rather than an air mattress on the floor. The mattress top added softness and made it much more comfortable to sleep on throughout the night. While sleeping alone, the mattress dropped very marginally towards the middle but it was not severe at all like I have experienced with other brands. While sleeping with my wife on the mattress it remained really firm through the night. The mattress is made for both single sleepers and couples. The max weight is 500 pounds. My wife and I top out at 300 pounds and felt like it could have easily supported twice as much weight.
CUSTOMER SUPPORT: Soundasleep offers a full year guarantee. I have not had a chance to use the customer support but will update this review if/when I do attempt to contact the company.
PRICE: The air mattress sells for a little over one hundred dollars which is over $75 cheaper than much lower quality products in the big box stores. I saw a Queen sized air mattress in Bed Bath for $250 and couldn't believe the price tag. I do not understand how Soundasleep is making money on such an excellent product at this price point, but their loss is our gain.
WHO COULD USE THIS: Anyone who is tired of going to Target, Sears, Bed Bath or Kmart and spending a lot of money on an inferior product. This air mattress is queen sized so it would likely not work for you if you are space constrained and have a small apartment. If you have the room for a queen, then this mattress is the best there is. It works well with singles as well as couples and probably even pets. It is clearly designed for indoor home use and not for camping. If you are looking for a camping mattress there are a number of other products better suited specifically for this activity.
BOTTOM LINE: This mattress is a no brainer for someone looking for a quality product. There might be slightly cheaper air mattresses out there but I have bought those in the past and always been disappointed. The Soundasleep Dream Series with ComfortCoil technology is a keeper. I highly recommend it!
