Home is easily one of the most dangerous places to be, though it need cot be so. Falls are among the chief hazard and every step should be taken to prevent them. Small rugs should be fastened to the floor or should be equip- ped with nenslip pads. Though many rugs are equip- _ ed with their own rubber backing, this may wear off of wash off in lime or may be- come covered with wax and dht. No small rugs should ever be placed on a slippery surface without some kind of backing or nonslip pad. Large carpets as well as small can be dangerous, espec- ially when they curl at the edges. Tack them. down. Re- pair holes in carpeting or throw the caipet out. Never place furniture in a normal traffic route through a room. Watch especially for New Paint Kits Make It Fun Furniture Refinishing Old furniture: can quickly and easily receive a new lease on fife with one of the new paint kits now available for antiquing enameling, and decoupaging.

Then complete the whole effect with a uecoupage il. DeeoupagiDg is the art of d e c o r a t ing surfaces perma- nently with paper cutouts and varnish. Through repeated ap- plications of varnish the object and the artwork become one.

Always hardware other decorttive pieces on cardboard, you can easily spray paint or enamel them. Use masking tape to cover any hardware that can't. be re- moved. When enameling, jazz-up that old piece with daring shades of mustard yellow, bright tur- quoise blue, or Chinese red. Jf you are antiquing, and this is by far the most popular of the refinishes, try these sug- gestions when applying the toner. Use a stiff bristle old toothbrush is dip the bristles into the toner. Then "spring" the brush with your finger to throw a fine spray of oner over the undefeoatlng. On flat surfaces such as. table tops, leave the centre light and grad- ually deepen the color from the remove as much as possible before you begin to paint. If you mount drawer pulls, knobs and centre outward. with moldings and carvings, you can work toner into crevices with a small antiquing brush.

For a t r u e test of your crea- tivity, try decoupaging. In these kits everything is in- cluded, except the art mate- rial which can be found in books, posters, magazines, greeting cards and modern prints. All you have to do is keep your eyes open for a de- sign that suits you, and fits the object you're working on. Once you've selected the proper picture, it must be care- cut-out and glued to the clean, dry surface. When the glue has dried, begin to var- nish. In decoupaging this step requires several days to com- plete but only minutes of ac- tual work. With the additional coats of varnish your handi- work comes alive and takes on an amazing three dimensional effect. How many coats of var- nish should be applied? Never less than 20, and many profcs- sionals have applied as many as 80 coats. After all your work, don't ruin the effect with air bubbles in the varnish. Never stir varnish! When you load the brush, do not drag the bristles across the rim of the can. This causes tiny air bubbles to form under the tips of the bristles. Varnish should be "flowed working from an unfinished lo a finished area. Brushing back and forth makes it stringy and may cause small bubbles lo form. Once you've tried any one of the refinishing kits, you will find you have an instinct and skill for artistic creation you never knew existed! small, light pieces, such as footstools that are easily kick- ed about and are not in your normal line of sight. Falls are especially preva- lent in the halhroom. The tub should be equipped with a rub- ber mat and well mounted hand rails lo grab hold of when getting in or out. These are especially important if older people are around. Electricity can be a hazard anywhere and most homeown- ers manage to d o u b 1 e and triple the hazard. Don't overload outlets. Do not run cords under rugs. The' wear and tear, on the insula- tion will eventually break through H, creating a fire hazard. Do not place a cord between a door and the door frame. The squeezing will break the insul- ation, cause a short circuit. Dp not run cords too dost to radiators (or over them, under them, on Again, there's a danger of damaging the insulation. When disconnecting a cord, grasp the plug and pull it never the cord. Eventually you will loosen the plug from the cord if you do il Ihe other way. Check all cords frequently worn or broken insulation. Be especially careful about leaving heating appliances con- nected when not attended. Every electrical swilch should be insulated.
