If I Had a Hammer
Written by Zari Esaian
I'm here to give you some instruction on how to fix a common household problem that might feel too small to pay someone to take care of, but too big to leave alone. Most of my expertise is in carpentry, but I know a thing or two about how things like toilets and drains work. Before I begin, allow me to provide a slight disclaimer: No advice I give is guaranteed to work, as all things, like people, are made slightly differently (depending on the quality, year, and the make). If we were friends, I could come over and show you in person. Unfortunately, life isn't that simple.

So, you want to upgrade your room. But all you’ve got to work with is a ratty old hand-me-down chair from Great-Aunt Lulu. Or you only have fifteen bones to redecorate and all the chairs at Goodwill are green velvet...and that’s just not your thing. Well, I bet most of us can relate. If you’ve ever been a poor college student, or if you plan on becoming one soon, fancy couches and chairs are probably beyond your budget. However, there is a way to take charge and not spend a lot of money. Here’s a quick and easy way to spiff up any chair and make it look original. And the best part? You don’t even need a sewing machine.
