Throwback Thursday: Home Decor and Project Guides

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

For this Throwback Thursday, we’ve rounded up three blog posts that are related to the upkeep of our homes, both indoors and out. Spring and early summer are great times to take stock of things that need repairing, replacing or revitalizing, and we hope these guides will help you check things off that list or give you ideas for future projects.

Thursday’s Theme: Renovations

A list of six things to keep in mind while preparing for a home renovation project, working on a renovation project, and ways to make sure any unwanted furnishings don’t go to waste.

Thursday’s Theme: Decor Guides

A roundup of – you guessed it – guides for painting, measure curtains and rugs, and one from the trusted team at This Old House.

Thursday’s Theme: Deck Safety

Spending time on the deck or a porch (especially with family and friends) is a highlight of spring and summer. First, though, you should make sure your deck or porch is still as safe as it was when it was first built. This blog post offers some suggestions for what to inspect and what to replace, if necessary.

Do you have any handy tips or guides you use every year when the weather starts warming up? Share with us in the comments, and we wish you well with all the projects you take on this year!

Weekly Spotlight: Household Solutions from SYW

Wednesday, January 4th, 2017

New to our catalog this winter, our household solutions spread offers whimsical, decorative and helpful items to you and your home. Here are five of those solutions.Fulcrum™ Light-It™ Soft-Glow Sensor Light

Soft-Glow Sensor Light by Fulcrum™

This motion sensing lighting solution works in areas of your home that don’t have electrical outlets, or are just in need of extra light, like a pantry, hallway or closet. Its weatherproof materials also make it ideal for outdoor lighting, on stairs, patios, decks and other surfaces.

The filigree design offers decorative appeal, and the warm LED lights are not too harsh on the eyes. Its mounting hardware is included as well, making this a convenient, easy-to-install home accent that illuminates your living spaces.

DayClocks – Changing the Face of Time™

Introducing a whimsical and helpful home accent to keep on a wall in your kitchen, bedroom or office. DayClocks™ were designed to help keep track of the time on a hunting or fishing trip, when there may not be digital methods available for keeping track of the days (and for when fun makes the time pass without notice). Each pie-shaped section of the clock designates which day of the week it is, but their are also other elements to this accessory. The lines separating each day indicate midnight, and the notch above each word tells you when its noon. However, if you want a clock that tells you both the day and the exact time, there’s a DayClock™ for that too. Buy one for yourself, or give as a gift to someone who has everything.

Oak DayClock™Memory Foam Cooling Pillow

Healthsmart Switch Sticks® Seat StickMemory Foam Pillow with Cooling Action

Our hooked wool pillows and decorative accent pillows add stylish comfort to your country home all day long, and now you can include a pillow that will help you get quality sleep throughout the night.

A contoured design and high-quality foam provides support and softness, and the Aloe Vera-infused cover enhances the chances of feeling more well-rested than with an ordinary pillow. In addition, a specifically designed cooling gel works to disperse body heat and keep you at a relaxed temperature as you sleep.

Stand, Unfold and Sit

An easy-to-use accessory that could make life a little easier, and long days more bearable.

The Seat Stick is perfect for long shopping trips, sporting events, parties and other occasions when you may need a break from standing. Simply unfold and rest, then when you’re ready to get back on your feet, fold it back up and put away, or use as a walking aid. The colorful pattern also offers a fun look for every day use.

Kitchen E-Cloth®

Perfect Cleaning with Just Water™

Our fifth household solution helps keep your home clean and free of bacteria, dirt and dust. E-cloths® are a revolutionary cleaning product; using just water and the specifically designed cloths, your kitchen, windows, appliances, tabletops and more will be streak-free, dirt-free and full of life.

No more paper towels, harmful chemicals or disposable cleaners; these cloths are machine washable and can be used over and over again. So dust your collectibles, wipe down your country kitchen counters and keep your windows clear all year long.
