If you like the traditional look of high-back chairs, but wish they were somewhat more elegant, a good solution would be skirted parsons chairs. There are plenty available, with upholstery in all sorts of colors and patterns.If however, you already own parsons chairs, an alternative would be to buy slipcovers made especially for these types of seats. It’s a solution that is definitely more affordable.
Two models that would look very nice in my dining room:

Whether pterodactyl, triceratops or T-Rex, kids love dinosaurs. So don’t be surprised if that’s what they want to dress as this Halloween. There is no shortage of costumes to chose from, so it should be fairly easy to find one that depicts your child’s favorite species. Some costumes come with mittens, which is great for keeping your little one’s hand warm – just make sure they can still handle their treat bag!
Here are three examples that I find quite adorable:

And I like both of these too – especially the one on the left:

Lockers are fine for hanging coats in, but that little shelf up top doesn’t give you much space to put books and supplies. Fortunately there are fabric shelves you can simply hang in your locker, providing you with extra surfaces to put your stuff on. They come in great colors, too. Of course, the downside is that once you install one of these, there is very little room left for hanging your coat.
Here are a few examples – I prefer the look of the black one, myself:
