<p>I have been looking at a lot of the great decorator ideas and I have a few questions.</p><p>1. How do you turn an object upside down?</p><p>2. How can you stick the Drednever workbench in the wall to make it a shelf? </p><p>3. What are folks doing with their aviak bird baths?</p>

1) Only wall mounted objects can be turned upside down. This is done via the mouse wheel or in small increments holding down Alt while using the mouse wheel.2) Since the workbench is a floor mounted item, you will need to hold down Ctrl while using the mouse wheel to move it along the Z axis (IE its elevation). Once you have the bench at the elevation you wish it to be, putting it against or into (if possible) the wall will give you a new shelf!3) Nothing particularly exciting atm, just baths. but once we get the new item scaling (IF we get it) I have plans! Ohhh, do I have plans!

Keep in mind as already suggested, only Wall mounted items can be placed upside down...  Like Mirrors, lights that attach to the walls, paitings...

You can also use Alt+ctrl mouse wheel to raise an item up into the air, maybe that's what was meant?

<p>I feel so stupid - yes ALT+ Wheel will raise the object on the Z axis.</p><p>I was trying to flight the aviak bird bath upside down to use it as a canopy but couldn't do it. I saw where someone did it and thought it would try it.</p><p>I was trying to use a ferrite table as the bottom for my fish tank and wanted to turn it upside down and sit it on the Mahogany counter but couldn't do it. Having a hard time getting a bottom for the fish tank. </p>

The pools which are upside down are small moonstone pools which are actually wallmounted.  But you can place two back to back to form a full pool and put those upside down.  But the aviak bath/large moonstone pools can't be used that way unfortunately.
