Add an Indoor Floor Fountain to Your Garden Room and Create Your Own Endless
Perhaps garden room is a bit of a misnomer; you don't have to actually turn an entire room into a garden to achieve this effecf. All you need to do is designate a portion of your living room, dining room, a guest room, or a sunroom as your garden room. Add color to the walls that remind you of the wonders of nature, a floor fountain, and some green plants to
bring the outdoors in. What garden room would be complete without a pleasant scent? Use scented oils to remind you of the wonderful fragrances that the warmer weather brings.

Three Do-It-Yourself Projects That Anyone Can Tackle
Dr. Simon White is a dentist living in Birmingham, England. A few years ago he purchased an older brick home and on this site he shares his remodeling triumphs and even his temporary defeats. Dr. White is just an average guy, with no special building skills, so the descriptions of every step of his three renovation projects are a true eye-opener and will give hope to any would-be do-it-yourselfer. After all, if a dentist from Birmingham can do, then anyone can. The three projects Dr. White undertook were putting in a bay window, putting in a new front porch, and putting in a fireplace. The steps taken in each of the three projects are fully described along with tools and materials needed. For such a simple site there is a great deal of useful information.
