Cleaning antique furniture properly helps you maintain its original aesthetic appeal and extend its life. Before you start, you should find out what you are cleaning so you have a better idea of how to do it.

Once you know the materials with which you are working, use a good cotton rag or paper towel and some water mixed with gentle soap to get started. Test out any cleaning products that you plan to use on an inconspicuous area of the furniture to ensure that it does not leave a stain. Get more great tips in this video.

With the amazing selection of furniture at Home Consignment Center, you can find amazing antique pieces for your home. We also sell furniture for you. To learn more about our Yorba Linda location, call (714) 637-1992.

When decorated correctly, the den is one of the most used rooms in a home. Buy furniture and accessories that help you make this room both stylish and comfortable so you have a place to sit, relax, watch television, and temporarily forget about the stresses of the world. This guide helps you put together a den that meets all of your needs:

Search for Comfortable Seating

Your seating options are the foundation of the den. If you want to create a space that is both functional and comfortable, you have to find the right furniture. While browsing for pieces that you like, you should always sit down and test them out before deciding to purchase anything. If you do not want to stand up from the couch or chair when you try it, you know you have found a winner.

Find an Entertainment Center

Whether you want to watch movies or just listen to music, an entertainment center helps you stock your den with the equipment you need to relax. Make sure an entertainment center has plenty of storage for all of your electronic equipment, movies, and music, and that it fits well inside of the room.

Add Some Unique Designs

Finish up your den with some fabulous accessories that create a particular décor in the room. Decide on a design style and find accessories that help you create it. From artwork to vases, home décor accessories give you some creative freedom that allows you to personalize a space and design it to your exact specifications.

When it comes to home décor, no one does it better than Home Consignment Center. With an amazing selection of consignment furniture and accessories, we give you the design choices you need at a price that fits nicely into your budget. To learn more about our furniture buying and selling services, visit us online or call (925) 272-0067.

Is there a room in your home that feels drab or dull? If so, it's time to elevate the space with a new design scheme. The first step that you should take is to select pieces with bold colors. This can help lend a curated look to the space. Finding large furniture pieces in bright colors can be especially helpful for creating a room design that wows. It's also helpful to layer accessories in a variety of colors and textures—throw pillows, blankets, vases, and sculptures are all ideal accessories for adding interest to the room's design. The final touch that is essential for renewing the space is the lighting. Incorporate a variety of lighting types, including ambient and accent lighting, to enliven the room and highlight its architectural details or your favorite pieces of art.

You can find high-quality consignment furniture and home accessories at Home Consignment Center of Austin. Whether you're looking for accent tables, barstools, or bedroom sets, we can help you find the perfect option. You can visit our website or call us at (512) 686-4763 to find out more.

Gus & Sasha at 6 months old - June 2010

Some days are better than others, when you're grieving the loss of a loved one. Today is one of the bad ones.

I lost my fiance, Gus, suddenly and traumatically about 6 months ago. I've learned how to cope and get through day by day, but I never for one minute forget. Some days, the fog covering my mind and heart is so thick, I feel like concrete weights are holding down the corners of my mouth when I try to smile (not to mention my eyelids). It's like pushing through mud - exhausting!

I tried to write something fun and light today, but I can't break through the heaviness. You can only ignore or push emotions away for so long, until they gain momentum and steamroll over you.

That's how grief is, and everybody is grieving some sort of loss in their lives.

Since we are ALL experiencing stress and discomfort at some level, let's practice a little compassion for one another.
Love and compassion can move mountains.
