I have a vanity table that was given to me as a wedding gift 15 years ago. It is not really good for anything except being at "catch all" and sits in my entry since the seat broke many years ago. It's really showing its age. Any ideas on how to give it a make over?

from what I see. use armor etch and do a neat design to the mirror. I would Paint the legs
This lake forms with each rain in varying degrees. It lies between ours and the neighbor's yard and over the years has been leaving our yard growing larger in the neighbor's. We
approached them about putting in a drainage system and were told they did that 20 years ago and weren't about to do it again. This happens up and down our street between houses and as a group we had gone before the village council with complaints. This past summer street work was done which included larger piping and grates being installed. We were told the problem was fixed.
This is the reason our sump pumps work so hard and never seem to last. Does anyone have any ideas? I am open to all suggestions except moving.

There must be a spring there somewhere. I would say build up around it so water doesn't
leave,,,,,,drain it and watch where the water the water comes in I doubt it's from rainfall. Be a great duck pond and ice skating. My friend had the same problem they dug it down 2 ft and ducks fly to it all the time. and put up a bat house or frogs or you'll have plenty of dragonflies come anyway.
In need of help! What do I do with this bizarre staircase enclosure? When we moved in three years go, this was what was used as an alternative to spindles and a bannister evidently. It is not weight-bearing, but we need to do something as we had twin boys this past April, and they are already on the move! As I'm sure you can guess, our budget is tiny, really non-existent actually, so anyway we can do this inexpensively would be great. I would rather not board it up as there is a great
deal of light that comes from the window at the top of the stairs. Right now there is a treadmill on this wall, and no other place for it in the house either, so it can't move. Any idea is welcomed.
