DIY novices, fear not: refurbing your furniture is much simpler than you may think. Repainting a dresser, bookshelf, or mirror doesn't have to be an arduous task, and can be tackled in a weekend afternoon with decorative paint. Upon graduating from art school, fine artist and decorative designer Annie Sloan, creator of Chalk Paint®, was looking for a quick and easy paint that could be used in a myriad of ways, and when she couldn't find what she needed, she set out to create it herself. "I wanted to be able to paint a piece of furniture or a wall and then wax it to create a beautiful effect, similar to the finishes used in grand houses in Europe. I just wanted the process to be simple. I also wanted to be able to add water to the paint to create washes, or to use it thickly to create texture," Sloan says.

With the holidays right around the corner, I've been thinking about why some houses work so well for a party. It's not the holiday-themed decor or even the food or drink, because if the party is really good, few remember those details.
The best parties are the ones where there are lots of places for wandering, for hanging out, for intimate conversations and for talking to new people. Your house might not be laid out for entertaining on a daily basis, but you can always rearrange the furniture to make it more party-friendly. And while you're at it, since it's a given that everyone always ends up in the kitchen, it's also a good idea to look for ways to spread the food and bar tables into other rooms to encourage people to mingle.
