Humanely dealing with pests this winter.

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Have you ever had a pest problem? I used to have a pet rat. They are smart, affectionate, clever little things. I'd never want to cause one unnecessary pain or suffering, which is why we've chosen to manage pests in our home with traps.

I'd never want to cause one unnecessary pain or suffering, which is why we've chosen to manage pests in our home with traps. It's not ideal, but it's better - and safer - than poison. I've done a little research on humane, effective vermin control during the wet months, when they like to come in from the cold. Take a look:

Hi everyone,
I'm working on a travel story for Stuff about the things that have surprised returning Kiwis about New Zealand. If you have recently returned from overseas or know someone who has, it would be great to hear about the things that have stood out for you, for better or for worse. Whether it's to do with the weather, the cost of things, the public transport, the food, the housing, the people or something else entirely, we'd be keen to hear about it.

DIY Fabric Headboard

Robert Anderson from Curtain Clean Palmerston North

You’ll need:
• Upholstery weight (ideally) fabric (Spotlight or your favourite store)
• Batting - I used an extra thick batting, be sure to get the width you need to cover your plywood or card
• Plywood or cardboard (local hardware shop or repurpose something lying around)

You’ll need:
• Upholstery weight (ideally) fabric (Spotlight or your favourite store)
• Batting - I used an extra thick batting, be sure to get the width you need to cover your plywood or card
• Plywood or cardboard (local hardware shop or repurpose something lying around)
• Staple gun (& staples!)
• Heavy duty mirror/picture hanger (we recommend Hangman Heavy Duty Mirror and Picture Hanger from Mitre 10 but you can use whatever suits you!)

Step 1. After laying the batting out on my tabletop, I put my sheet of plywood on top. The size of your plywood will depend on the size of your bed. Wrap the batting around the plywood and start stapling it down with a staple gun. Just staple your way all around the board. Super easy.

Step 2. Once the batting was secured, I laid out the fabric with the patterned side down. I gave it a quick ironing to get out any wrinkles before starting. After placing my plywood on top of the fabric, it was time to start stapling the fabric. I started off by doing the two long sides. I made sure to pull it tightly as I was going so that it wouldn’t be too loose in the front.

The corners are the part you want to be careful with. My technique (and I’m not sure if this is the “right” way or not, but it worked) is to approach it like I was wrapping a present. I get one side stapled, and then fold it in to the un-stapled side. Then I bring that piece up and pull it really tightly and staple along the seam. It takes a bit of practice, but I would just do it a few times until I got the perfect seam and then staple ‘er down.

Step 3. Now came the tricky part of actually hanging it. We wanted to attach it directly to the wall rather than to our bed. We searched around and finally came across a Heavy duty mirror / picture hanger (Mitre 10, Bunnings probably has similar) Simply mount one track on mirror or picture, then install the wall track with included anchorless fasteners.


We’re really happy with how it turned out. The colours are just right and it’s nice to bring another textile into the room. Plus, it makes our basic bed look about a million times nicer and more expensive!
