TUESDAY; OCTOBER s, •LiTHEViLLE (ARK.)'' OOCTHM FA« Over-Large Living Room Not Difficult to Remedy In some homes with very ims, the living-room , lurntt-ute y appear lost in the* over-sized ipace. Solve thus ' problem without buying new pieces by using two timple decorating tricks: (1) Break up space by dividing the floor Into two/or more areas. (2) Forget the corners In the large room, cluster- Ing furniture together to make conversation groups. . You can convert one end of the living-room into dining space, and ^ use the original dining-room for au extra bedroom. Place dining-table and chairs at one end of the room and borrow the breakfront china cupboard and Iwo side chairs for your living-room end. Place the : cupboard against one wall, ,oppo- .Mte the fireplace or across from a, large. =ofa, and flank it with '-he chairs. This goes a long way toward giving, the room a pleasantly , furnished look. • Separate Dining and Living Room Areas One way to separate dining- a'.id living-room, areas is to place the sofa parallel to the fireplace in ^he center of the room. Back it with a rectangular table which can hold ' .lamp, books and accessories In easy reach. Twin upholstered arm-chairs on either side of the fireplace, lo- :gether with the nearby sofa, 4 v;ill •encourage comfortable convcrsa- . -lion. . : Can Have Privacy ' If you need privacy while the JJRpung people entertain,'make a library or study alcove at the other . end of the large living-room. A .folding screen, or heavy floor-to- celling curtains which can be ^drawn together on an overhead ;traclc, will clos* off the , reading • area and help .mulfle sound. Build bookshelves against the' wall and paint them in the wall color. A couple of easy chairs, table or desk 'and reading lamp will provide a .quiet spot for reading or study, which can. be thrown open when you want to use the entire room as a unit. 'An effective way to avoid look of loo much open space in large room i* to rharic olf or divide ;the floor area. A pattern of flowing-curves which follow the lines of the furniture groupings will give modern look. • . . - Real Estate Transfers . A.

SurlicM, etpeclally those »poi«d lo weather, generally are dry after the hot month* of »ummer. Preparing » turfacc for paint m»y mean a complete Hashing for one that la exceptionally dirty or only a bnilshluf for,one that is dusty. New surface! usually need a priming coal of paint. Old palnled surtacej often require Kraplng and filling In of cracks, In choosing painting equipment, it Is best not to skimp on expendl- urw. A few extra dollars spent for good painting U»lx are the ama- ,eur's best insurance for success. Paint should be of a high quality. Any reputable dealer is qualified to • elect the right paint for any particular surface. Brushes, loo, should be of high quality. Here again. It pays to follow » dealer's advice, ror most pnlnttns, at lewil two brushes tire needed, on« 4 to;-5 Inches wide for use on large areas and one about 2 lushes wide for trim work. To be sure that patnLs and brushes are given lair chnnccs to help do perfect Joljs, paint mixing should be done carefully. ThU calls for two mixing paddles aiid two palls. Emply pnlnt Into one of the palls a little bit at a time Mix and add more paint. Then pou the- paint front one pall to the oth er a few times.
