Why You Need Paint Spray Booth for Car Painting

Getting your car painted professionally can be costly, so if you have the technical know how, the artistic sensibility or the desire to experiment on your car :D then why not paint it by yourself? To get started, you must decide on where you want to have your painting job done. Having a paint spray booth is highly recommended and one of the most important investments you can make if you take painting seriously.

There are elements that could easily ruin a painting job like dirt, dust, bugs etc specially in open areas . Closed spaces like your regular garage also poses a problem as it doesn't have the required ventilation. So having a paint spray booth helps eliminates these problem.

Remember car painting is a delicate process but not one that can't be done. Paint spray booth has some basic features that you have to keep in mind if you want to have one installed. It usually has a ceiling, a good ventilation system and four walls. The ventilations system should be chosen with care as this prevents fumes from gathering around the booth. Air filters are usually also present in the ventilation system to filter out dust and dirt. Some spray booths also includes a heating lamp to help paint dry faster.

The lighting is another thing to be considered. Auto painting uses some hazardous and flammable materials so paint booth lights should also be chosen with care and pick one that is safety approved and explosion proofed.

There are ready made paint booths already available in the market but it is quite costly for something you would not be using frequently. But if you have a little knowhow and some technical advice here and there, you can actually also build your own spray paint booth. You local hardware could be an excellent resource. For lighting needs, Magnalight.com by Larson Electronics has good choices.

When it comes to seating furniture comfort and aesthetics should really blend in together. And this came to mind when I came across the George Nelson Marshmallow Sofa. It looks modern and chic and its quite difficult to believe that this design has been turning heads since 1956. This makes the design an all time classic.

18 pieces of 10-inch marshmallow-like cushions arranged to float on a steel frame. Durable, colorful, stunning and comfortable.

Wishing For A Lush Tropical Family Vacation

It's raining like mad in Manila and here in Phnom Penh its raining every now and then too. And since were on the "ber" months already, its getting cold and breezy already. Makes me wish I was in some tropical island and resort like the Negril Jamaica resort, sunbathing, snorkeling, playing beach ball with my family..

I'm a bit fixated with Jamaica, Bahamas and all those little tropical islands. I know I'm from the Philippines where you will be spoiled for choices when it comes to beautiful beaches, resorts and the sun. But at times I want to check out what in the tropics in the other side of the world and book myself and my family an all inclusive vacations in any of those lush resorts.

Another reason I'd loved to go there is that they have great resorts, well-thought of tours and packages for every budget and lots of activities like nature tours (falls, canopy etc), horseback riding, deep sea fishing, dolphin cove visit, parasailing, rafting, biking, undersea tours, museums, and shopping! And those are just some of what you can do, so there's something to do for every member of the family! Definitely a great family vacation destination.

Some areas are popular with crowds like the Doctor's Cave beach in Montego Bay while some others tend to be quiet and relaxing like those near Ocho Rios and Runway Bay. I prefer quieter yet easily accessible places so I'll probably pick a resort in Ocho Rios or book myself a suite in the Ocho Rios hotels.

See I've even done plenty of research on where to go. :D I just wish now that our schedule and finances permit..

eRoomservice.com has such a fab collection of modern furniture and what particularly stands out from their gallery is their modern bedroom furnishings.

Bedroom furniture for me is one that is easy to get if prefer modern contemporary look. One of my favorite beds that truly embodies the modern contemporary look is the platform bed. Why I love it? It's sleek, easy on the eyes, gives the room a less cluttered look and if you're not a big fan of box springs on your bed, then this could be the choice for you.

The base of platform beds usually consists flat, hard, horizontal surface meant to support the mattress. The mattress is then placed directly placed on top of the surface eliminating the need for box springs. Modern platform beds usually feature sleek lines, minimal embellishments, solid colors. A big number of platform bed designs are also incorporating European and Asian styles to come up with a uniquely contemporary platform bed design. Here's some of my picks of platform beds from eRoomService.com.









And eRoomService is not only limited to platform beds but they have a wide range of bedroom furniture you can choose from. From bedroom sets, to leather beds, nightstands, dressers, mirrors, armoires etc, practically everything you need to come up with a "uniquely yours" modern contemporary bedroom.

Organizing Kitchen Clutter Gizmos

I let you in on a secret. I love fixing stuff. I love home organizing but my least favorite part of the house to organize is the kitchen. Why? Simply because the clutter just easily goes back to being clutter after I organize it. Added to the fact the I love to cook and when I do I tend to be messy :D.

And when that happens it frustrates me no end. So I had to think of ways on how I could effectively organize my kitchen clutter in a way that would match how I work in the kitchen.

Being organized doesn't exactly mean everything is clean and neat with nothing in sight except the basic furnishings. Being organized means everything is in place and you can easily reach out and get the stuff you need if you need it. The solution then would be to have a place for everything and making sure that those designated places are right where you'll be able to reach it easily.

I've browsed online for stuff I could make use to organize my kitchen clutter especially my collection of spices, wines, as well as my pots. I found JK Adams with plenty of gizmos to help eliminate kitchen clutter.

I love spices. My husband and I are both into tasting and experimenting with different cuisines. We love Italian, Chinese, Indian and now I am really into trying out different Khmer and Thai foods which heavily uses spices. So every time I cook, these stuff just goes everywhere and this jk adams spice rack would just do the trick. I like the carousel since it would keep the bottles in a limited area plus it can be easily accessed. The horizontal wood spice rack would work well too..


Another kitchen I liked is the jk adams pot rack. This surely makes for easy access. Hang it near your stove or if you prefer the standing wooden version, place it where you can easily grab it. I consider my pots one of the most precious things in my kitchen so I have having them inside cabinets and I prefer seeing them and easily getting them when I'm cooking in a rush. So this pot racks will really work for me.
