I have always wanted to attempt making a kitchen island and I finally found the perfect one to make...... From and inspirational picture found on PINTEREST to a Kitchen Island I'll Love
forever, cause it was made by my own 2 hands....
To see The step by step instructions I used to make this ...Please visit My BLOG PAGE..
I noticed that a few people have commented on maybe adding a piece of Plexi Glass to the top of this....... Sorry I forgot to say in the post that I went and purchased some Plexi glass and have it sitting on top of the Door.... It's not shown in the picture cause I purchased it after I had taken all the pics... Sorry for the confusion... But thank you all for your input :)..... It definitely is a must for sure..... a lot easier to clean and no food getting into all the Crevices ......
Shower cleaning has to be one of my least favorite chores.
The tight space combined with cleaning solutions is just flat out aggravating.
Plus, if you have mold or mildew sometimes you're forced to use chemicals like bleach or ammonia (which I try to avoid since my wife has asthma & allergies!!).
All these things persuaded me to try Wet & Forget Shower because it uses surfactants instead of harsh chemicals to clean.
Plus, I did an 11 week experiment to see if it really would work. One half of our shower walls and doors got the Wet & Forget while the other half didn't.
The most striking result was the elimination of the red or orangish film that forms in grout lines. Wet & Forget did an awesome job at stopping this from happening.
Mildew and mold were also prevented in the treated versus untreated area. This is good news for anyone who can't bend down to get to these hard to reach places.
The only kind of surface that you shouldn't use Wet & Forget Shower on is natural marble because of its porosity. I checked this out before using it :)
And finally, the soap scum formation was halted on our glass shower door.
In case you're interested I shared a video of my results along with other tips on my blog. And there's a special surprise for anyone who reads to the end of the post!! So don't miss out. Here's the link http://www.homerepairtutor.com/wet-and-forge...
I recently convinced my Mom that here red brick fireplace would look great with a wash of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I used the Pure White, thinned it down with water and applied it as a
wash. It was a wonderful transformation! Even my Dad liked it when I finished and he had been skeptical! Four hours and one quart of paint = one great update :) You can see more about this project and other ASCP projects on my blog www.sewafineseam.com
The homeowners of this Chester County home, designed by historic restoration architect John Milner, wanted to update their cramped kitchen to make it brighter and more functional, while
staying true to the traditional farmhouse style of the house. To achieve this goal, Pine Street Carpenters designed a new kitchen incorporating custom bead-board cabinetry and solid maple countertops. To open up the kitchen and create more space, a custom hutch with period hardware was built-in along one wall of the kitchen and the exterior wall was pushed back. Centered in the kitchen is a custom bead-board multi-function island. The hand-selected cherry wood top works for prep cooking and dining, and the bead board base is loaded with storage. Environmentally-friendly cork flooring was used throughout the kitchen, and custom mahogany doors connect the kitchen to the outdoors, leading to a hardscaped patio.
The room was originally a bedroom in our 1880s Victorian Farmhouse but converted to a full bath before we moved in. The room is approximately 11×14. We stripped the wall-paper and put up
bead board (individual pieces, not paneling) and painted the plaster walls above it. We had to demo the west wall to insulate and then install and mud the drywall, sand and paint. More photographs and details can be seen on our blog. http://www.fairfieldhousenj.com/2012/02/13/t...
I got this little shelf/table at Roundtop Antiques Show Lat year for $20. I love the look of stacked white towels in a bathroom and I didn't want all of them hidden in the linen closet. I
decided to use this shelf next to the shower to store things I wanted within arms reach. You can open the shower door and literally grab a towel or a fresh bar of soap without stepping foot on the floor. Also within reach are q-tips, a basket of wash cloths and a basket of hand towels. It has been very handy, and by sticking to the all white formula, pretty as well. To visit my blog and see more stuff like this click here: http://farmhouseporch.blogspot.com
