Not On The High Street is selling the Mat Walk, a $72 bath mat equipped with slippers. The product site claims it’s so you don’t slip and fall after you hop out of the shower. Alternatively, don’t hop out of the shower. Just take it slow, hold on to the sides of the tub and lower yourself slowly to the ground. Then, crawl across the bathroom floor heading towards that pile of dirty laundry. Now you’ve reached your destination SAFELY.
Mat walk bathroom mat - Slippers are integrated into the mat, allowing you to walk comfortably and without slipping on dirty or wet floors. At the same time, Mat walk can be seen as a new way of wiping the bathroom floor.~~ Great idea for making!! This is how I mop and dry my floors!
Metal tile makes a bold statement no wallpaper can match. Select a low-relief pattern and install the panels over 1/4-inch plywood. When mounted beneath a chair rail, tin creates a distinctive wainscot.

How to get candle (or Scentsy) wax off surfaces. I bumped my Scentsy and got wax ALL over the wall, baseboard, and end table. I used the hairdryer to heat it and then followed with a wet paper towel to wipe it away as it started to drip. It was so easy to get off it was almost comical. Great to remember!

Electrical panels, thermostats, big switch plates—they're household necessities, but they're also eyesores that can thwart your decorating efforts. Using sliding display panels will keep them accessible but under wraps so guests won't have to see them. See the how-to instructions to make your own

"I had some disposable aluminum cookie sheets from the party store, and it dawned on me that they would make great faux tin tiles. I cut squares from the cookie sheets, embossed a pattern, primed them, and finished them with acrylic metallic paint. I used them to create a backsplash, but they would make an awesome-looking ceiling. That's a lot of embossing, though!" -TOH reader Suzy M.

"There was this big ugly black box in my living room called a subwoofer that my husband just couldn't part with. So I took an old end table of his, chopped the legs off, and set the top right on the subwoofer, which made a perfect base. My new end table looks like one piece, it didn't cost me anything, and my husband loves it because he gets to keep his subwoofer. It's gotta be from the '80s!" -TOH reader Jeanie H.
