Great tip! Before gardening/yard work, drag your nails across a bar of soap, claw-like. The soapy buildup will protect the area under the nail bed from a soily invasion. Once you are done mucking about in the dirt you*ll find that washing up is a breeze!
We already know that the desk-stand is perfect for small spaces. Take even more advantage of limited square footage with some optical illusion trickery, like an oversized mirror or a clear acrylic chair that virtually disappears into the design - perfect for rooms of any size that want to disguise the desk’s true function.
This is a really clever idea for a small bedroom...have a small table instead of a bedside table, it does triple duty -it's a bedside table, a home office and a vanity. I love the wicker back chair and the vintage mirror on the wall.
