The book pillow has just a decorative effect, creating a highlight for the room, and has an excellent function for health. The choice of the best reading pillows is a popular trend, so many interior designers pay attention; this leads to the formation of many different products to suit the tastes of consumers.

The importance of reading pillows in bed

Book pillows on the bed are a form of reading pillows, which are a small type of pillow designed to support the back, backrest, arms, neck, head, or used for decoration. Cushions are usually placed on armchairs, sofas but are often placed on beds.

One of the functions of a reading pillow is decoration. Pocket pillows are often used to accentuate the color of a room, usually in shades of walls, curtains, or carpets.

In addition to decorating, the reading pillow on the bed also works to support your arms, legs, head, neck, back to help you sleep better, more comfortable, help you warm up love with your partner, or help lean back gently for pregnant women. The softness of the pillow cover, the soft feel of the pillow gut, will help support your body, limiting joint pain to create a deep sleep, a more refreshing spirit.

Because of the significant effect in creating comfort, helping the body to reduce fatigue, limiting aches and pains, creating deep sleep, the choice of reading pillows is highly respected by many people.

Understanding the need, the designers are meticulous in choosing materials to the certainty of each needle, thread, especially the meticulousness in the stitching to make the maximum comfort best for dear customers.

Instruction to buy a pillow for reading

There are several factors to consider before purchasing a reading pillow:

  • Inner material and support

Reading pillows are often filled with different materials that provide a different type of support. Some common materials used include:

You need to removing memory foam in most cases; standard memory foam pillows are filled with solid foam. On the other hand, the tear-proof memory foam reading pillows were filled with sponges. This makes it easy to sculpt its shape so that you can get the support and comfort you need for different areas. A debris-shaped pillow is more prone to mold, softer, and also holds less heat.

Memory foam is also known as viscous polyurethane foam and is an ideal material for softening pressure and body heat. This material also provides luxurious support for the head, neck, and the whole body while maintaining its original shape.

Microfiber / Polyester yarn is also called fiber optic and is usually synthetic material. It is used in both reading and standard pillows. However, polyester fiber reading pillows do not provide the same support when compared to memory foam materials. The biggest drawback of this material is that it doesn’t last long.

  • External material

Just like the inside material, the exterior should be considered before buying a reading pillow. Here are some of the top fabrics used:

Imitation suede is also known as micro suede or microfiber suede. It is a durable material that helps repel stains and is easy to clean.

Velour has a soft and lustrous feel. It is also a velvet stretcher, easy to clean, and an inexpensive option at the same time.

Velvet is a shiny and luxurious fabric that gives a luxurious look. The strength of the pillow depends on the type of yarn, ie, silk velvet, mohair velvet, and wool velvet.

Corduroy is a soft and durable material made from pure or blended cotton. It has veins running along the length of the fabric, giving it a unique feel and appearance.

  • Easy to clean

Most reading covers have a removable cap that sometimes needs to be washed. Some even require professional cleaning. Therefore, before you choose a reading pillow, make sure you identify it easy to clean to avoid damage or buy a pad that requires a lot of attention when cleaning.

  • Colors and patterns

Reading pillows come in a variety of colors and designs to choose from. The color and layout of your choice largely depend on your preferences and preferences. However, neutral colors should be selected so that they can continue to look appealing for a long time.

In conclusion

Above, I have already shown you the information about how to choose the best reading pillow. Besides, we know the knowledge about the importance of a book pillow. So what are you waiting for without buying the best reading pillow, a “friend” on the bed with a backrest!

Measures to Maintain Jigsaws

Are you using a jigsaw for your home and workshop? I think that every carpenter should equip a jigsaw for yourself. Because Jigsaws are an indispensable tool for tasks such as straight cutting and shaping wood simply and quickly. The advantages are a great plus for comparing this saw with other types of saws or drills.

However, this type of tool is not used as often as other types of saws such as table saws or drills. Therefore, if you do not know how to properly store and maintain it, the tool will quickly become corrupted and degraded.

In today’s article, I will describe in detail the useful tips and tricks that every carpenter needs to know to preserve those jigsaw and other carpentry tools. Are you curious about what those tips are? Alright, I won’t let you wait any longer. Let’s start exploring.


Cool Down Heated Tools

After continuous working time, your tool may become hotter. It is a warning that it is overworked. In this case, you need to turn off the tool to let it cool down. This method will help the motor from wear and tear quickly. Or reduce the risk of explosion of other parts.

Besides overuse can damage the tool, If you use the tool with inappropriate materials of course also destroy the tool quickly. For example, is it ridiculous to use the best jigsaw to cut wood to cut other materials like cement or pottery? Therefore, you should always use jigsaw most appropriately and scientifically so that the tool can be used for a long time.

Clean the tool regularly

Regular cleaning before and after using the tool is a necessary process and cannot be ignored. This keeps your stuff clean and shiny. With the outer shell, you only need to use a towel to wipe away the dirt and dust. As for the inside of the tool, such as the vent, you need to equip a small brush to push the dirt that has accumulated in the tool out. Moreover, you should take some time to clean the tool daily before storing so that its parts do not rust quickly and always work most efficiently.


Lubrication is the next method I want to mention to help your power tools, namely jigsaws can always be in the best condition. Besides, regular lubrication of the engine will help reduce corrosion and rust from the environment or continuous use.

However, each type of electric tool will use a certain type of lubricant. You should consult people who use jigsaws. And the best way, please follow the manufacturer’s instructions on choosing the lubricant that is most appropriate to ensure the best.

Sharpen the blade

I think everyone knows that the blade is the most important part to decide the material of your cuts on the material. Therefore, you need to clean and sharpen the blade regularly before using the tool so that the cutting process is always easy and effective. And if the saw blade is taken care of regularly, you will not encounter a saw stuck in the material or even too blunt.

Tighten bolts and screws

If you use the tool for a long time, its screws or bolts tend to loosen. Moreover, if you do not check and constrain it, it will fall off at any time. That will greatly affect your cutting process. And even this error makes you injured. Therefore, please check the screws or bolts before using the tool to make sure there are no dangers.

Note about storage environment

Next, you need to store power tools as well as other carpentry tools in a dry environment. If you store electric tools in wet environments, the tools will be more prone to corrosion and rust faster. And It is even more so that the tools will be harder to work with or even unusable. Ideally, you should store the power tools in a box or cabinet if not in use. This helps to remove dust and dirt from the air entering the tool.

Replace worn parts

This is quite necessary if you want your cutting process to always be in the best state. Check and replace the rusted parts so they won’t interfere with your cutting. Specifically, the blade of the tool is a device that is likely to rust or break due to continuous work, so you should replace it immediately if you find it rusty. Or power cords and switches are also easy to break down quickly and need replacing immediately.

Battery care

If you are using a cordless jigsaw, you need to take care of this preservation. First, to keep the battery of the tool at its best, you need to store it in a dry environment and a moderate temperature. Next, if your battery is experiencing rapid depletion or overheating during the charging process, you need to get it repaired and replaced immediately. Because this is a sign that the battery is overworked and it may explode at any time. Lastly, do not leave the battery completely discharged before recharging. That reduces the life of that battery.

In conclusion

I have finished some tips and notes you need to know when using power tools in general and a particular jigsaw. Taking some time and follow my instructions so that your tool will work for a long time.

Finally, I hope that the information I have given will help you. And thank you for taking the time to read this article. Have a nice day.


How to tuft. It’s super easy. You’ll need:

  • Dritz button making kit
  • Button Thread
  • Stapler
  • Darning needle
  • Drill (If you are tufting a seat cushion or ottoman you will most likely be using plywood to adhere the foam to and you’ll need to drill holes where you want your buttons to go.)

First, you make the buttons with the fabric you are upholstering with. Then decide where you want your buttons to go and mark with a marker.…

DIY Dining Room Bench/ Banquette

I’d known I wanted a dining banquette since I saw the dining room furnished. I also know that I am very fickle and something built in just wasn’t an option. Free standing was the way to go, but the ones I liked were expensive! I saw some building plans on Ana White, but they seemed a little too time consuming for Hubby and I. So I sketched more simple ones. Here’s how we turned these materials into one comfy, cozy dining settee.To build your frame you’ll need:

  • 2  1″ x 4″ x 8′ (primed piece was left over scrap from a previous project) .

Restained Dining Room Table MAKEOVER!

My dining room was in desperate need of a new dining room no, wait. My dining room was in desperate need of a MAKEOVER. And it started with this dining room table. Here is what my dining room looked like before.

hot mess

This all started when my mom offered me her dining room set and I took it. It had the same finish as my previous dining room table that really didn’t work for me (a little too much shine for my taste and totally not practical with 2 dirty kids running around).…

DIY Dining Room Art (In 5 Minutes)

I bought inexpensive RIBBA frames from IKEA (9.99), but I didn’t know what to put in them. I was waiting until I saw the perfect print. Well they sat there until I got an idea to use some of my old faux flowers ( In my earlier decorating days, I was a fan of faux flowers) and extra burlap.  Materials you’ll need:

  • Faux flowers
  • Less than half a yard of burlap
  • Frame with mat
First, lift the metal wedges that hold the back of the frame up.


My amazing talented brother, who will be featured on this blog a lot, just finished my logo. I am in LOVE!!! You can visit his website to see some of his other amazing work!

I love that he incorporated the hammer and paintbrush into the title. Plus, he used my actual handwriting in the signature. I think he’s somewhat of a genius, but I may be a little bias. A big thanks to him for really helping to make my blog chug a little farther.…

Hubby Says I’m Afraid Of Color…

So my amazingly wonderful husband says I need to start experimenting with color. So here’s my first colorful post. It’s my roadside rescue sewing bench. Yes, I pack my Little One’s in the car early on Wednesday mornings and look at what people are throwing out (It’s just so sad to know that perfectly good furniture will just sit in a landfill).

This little baby was on the side of the road. SADLY, I didn’t take a before shot because I’m a little too quick to rehab sometimes.…

Recovered Ottoman For About $12 In 2 Hours, No Ripping.

Our storage ottoman had seen better days. I had to face the fact that it needed help after almost 4 years of abuse. BUT I really didn’t want to take an ANOTHER upholstery project at this point they are piling up fast! It’s not really the upholstery that I mind so much as ripping it all apart before I actually upholster it.

So I decided I wasn’t going to rip it apart. I would just go right over it…it couldn’t hurt to try anyway.…

DIY Black Pipe Breakfast Table

I thought I’d give a quick post on how I (umm….Hubby) made our breakfast table. It was so super easy and customizable that I think a lot of other DIYers can get ideas from it. I know my super creative brother did (See more of his artistic abilities on his website!!)

We used IKEA’s butcher block countertop. Hubby cut to exactly 44 inches. I didn’t want it to interfere with our walkway. I actually use the left over piece as a cutting board!…
