Funky space? Think twice: When house-hunting, look closely at room shapes as well as sizes. Oddly shaped spaces can be interesting, but difficult to furnish–especially with the furniture you currently own.
If you are gluing veneer to a wood surface, you can use an old clothes iron to help. First use a sponge to wet the face of the veneer so that it won’t curl. Next, apply a thin film of glue to both the surface and the underside of the veneer. Then, when the veneer is dry to the touch, use the clothes iron at a high setting to secure the veneer in place.
