There’s actually a whole series entitled like that and it includes a TV unit, coffee table, side table and some wall shelves. Today we’ll only focus on the tables, trying to find ways to integrate them into ingenious projects. Let’s start with a simple transformation. For this project you can use either a Lack or a Hemnes table which are both Ikea coffee tables. Get some wooden boards and cut them to size so you can make a tabletop. Stain them and measure the center of the table so you know where to place the first board. Clamp each end down and then add the others the same way. Glue and screw all the boards, turn the table upside down and put something heavy on the middle. Let it sit overnight, add more screws in the center of each board but on the underside so you don’t see them.

The design and finish go particularly well with the coastal décor but you can basically match this piece with all sorts of interiors. The steps to create something like this are pretty simple. First, get a Lack Ikea coffee table and assemble it. Then get some wood and cut the boards to size. Stain them with your favorite color. Carefully measure the boards and place them on top of the table so they sit evenly. You can leave some gaps between them if you like the look. Then nail down the boards and that’s pretty much it.

The headboard wasn’t attached to the bed frame so when the entire structure was pulled up to free up the floor space, this accessory remained on the wall, serving as a decoration. Adding a hanging bed with a pulley system to a cabin was a clever move and a practical decision taken by the designer. Given the limited floor space, this allows a single room to change function easily, transforming from a bedroom into a living space.

For example, you can turn such a table into a comfortable tufted ottoman. You might have to cut the legs a bit to make them shorter. Then use foam and fabric to make the cozy seat cushion and attach it to the table. There’s more than one way to give this coffee table a new look. So how about adding some mid-century charm to the mix? For this project you only need to use the top of the Lack table. You also need to find some tapered legs to use with it. So basically install the legs and make sure they’re symmetrical and stable.

If the mattress is lumpy and the springs are too bouncy it might be time to go shopping. We also change as we age. A person who has once slept best on a soft mattress may be more suited to a harder mattress later in life, or, vice versa. Weight gain and weight loss can all effect how we react to our mattresses. A mattress might be perfect for one person but if two people start using it there could be difficulties. Studies have shown that beds can lose up to 70% of their original hardiness over 10 years. How Do I Select a Mattress?

Because your weight is distributed evenly over a memory foam mattress, you get a firm feeling without your hips, back, and joints being compromised. And because a memory foam mattress adapts to your body heat, your body gets the cradling support it requires. Almost every Memory Foam Mattress is temperature sensitive. At lower temperatures, the mattress is firmer or more viscous while at higher temperatures, the memory foam mattress is softer making the mattress more comforting, as it is more elastic. The mattresss temperature sensitivity is responsible for the melting feeling you have whenever you are lying on it and this accentuates the foams molding affect. This is another thing that a spring mattress does not have. A spring mattress does not react to the heat of the users body. When it comes to maintenance, a spring mattress has to be rotated once in a while, preferably once every three months. This is done to even the wear and it is important that you avoid bending or folding the mattress. With a memory foam mattress on the other hand, you do not have to flip it over or rotate it: it virtually requires no maintenance.

Instead you want to make sure the ticking is sturdy and well made and not prone to ripping. The higher quality ticking is made of material that is knitted or woven using cotton or viscose yarn. Cheaper mattresses are made of polypropylene or polyester. The cheapest mattresses are made of stitchbond or bonded cloth. Manufacturers now make external mattress covers with special features such as anti-allergy, anti-bacterial and anti-static. They may be resistant to staining, water and fire. Amazingly enough, there are even mattresses that give off different scents conducive to a good nights sleep. Spring Mattresses. There are three basic types of spring mattresses. A continuous spring mattress is made from a single piece of wire woven into many springs. The springs are linked in a vertical pattern. The wire is soft and the coils are small. This generates more reaction from the mattress. An open coil mattress is the most common form of mattress. The springs are arranged horizontally and connected at their tops and on the bottom by a twisting wire. The rods that run around the edge of the coils add strength. A pocket spring mattress has coils that are placed in fabric coverings. Instead of working as a unit, these springs function separately. As a result movement between partners on the same bed can not be felt by the other.

These beds are known to be perfect for people suffering from allergies. Wave motion varies between beds. Some waterbeds also come with heaters to keep the bed warm.
