Miguel always does cool stuff to make you awe over.

Nathan, the room looks great. Dig the new couch. Where did you find the tree? It looks like a 7'? Oh yeah, we need to meet sometime. We live too close to each other not too.

1. Start off using a Magic Eraser to clean all scuffs off the surface. The ME has a small amount of grit to it believe it or not. Make sure to use the real Mr. Clean ones (Original).

Bosa Nova,

Thanks for the reply. Just in time. We will be heading up to the shops you listed tomorrow. And since we love Thai food we'll most likely try Ratchada.

Search antique malls. I found 5 trees amongst 3 antique malls this past weekend. The most expensive was a 5' pom pom tree at $89. I found one 4' for $24!

Good luck
