Hi Nina. I would love to know how you did this board. Did you put wallpaper on top of a magnetic white board? Looks fantastic! I am trying to do something similar to my home office! Thx in advance

I have this chair in tobacco color but never knew who made it. I purchased it at a yard sale for $60 from a lady who said she got it from a store that recycles high end furniture from hotels.

30" is standard - never go below 29" and an adjustable height chair works best

You can go to home depo and get a product called homasote. Then you can get a pretty fabric and make them. the oars can be any size. The ones here have a moulding separating the areas. You can also take ribbon and put on top of the fabric, and take nail heads to hold it in place and create really pretty boards. My company makes custom ones if ou I've up. Info@jamieherzlinger.com

Wow...is that what I wrote. I am interested in the wood flooring we are buying a house and thinking of going with wood floors so many to pick and I fell in love with the one on the photo. Our kitchen cabinets will be maple was thinking of going with a darker wood flooring would it look good with the cabinets?

the flooring is 3/4" tongue and groove rift white oak, with a very dark stain. Light maple and very dark floors-- it's a personal preference, could look very striking. You'll need to tune the floor color to work with the yellow of the maple though. Also-- I warned my client in advance-- dark floors show EVERYTHING! Wet footprints that have dried (think dogs), every piece of lint and dust. She still loves them though.
