I would like to redo my bathroom floor which is linoleum. Can I put tile over it or do I have to rip it up before I put the tile down ( not the peel and stick tile)

Monica.... definitely remove the existing floor and to install the tile properly......install
an approved underlayment such as concrete backer board or hardi board underlayment. This will insure a stable surface for the ceramic tile with no future problems. Do not install the tile directly to the wood subfloor.....you will eventually have problems,
I live in an apartment building in quite a dense neighborhood. One evening, when looking out my window, I realized I can see evert pixel of my neigbors washing machines driers, kitchens and showers if in the wrong side of the house (The photo attached is just an illustration, my camera just caught patches of light)
This means that all those 200 eyes of my neighbors see all my stuff too.
The previous owners made a stupid box looking fireplace. I want to upgrade! Please see the pics and let me know if this is work you can do. I'm getting quotes together and would like it done ASAP if possible. I live in McDonough, Ga.

Kylie.....may I suggest you contact Israel Montenez at 678-758-6006. He is an exceptional
cabinet maker and a real nice guy. He is also very reasonable. Tell him that Gary Rosen (electrician) recommended that you call him.
back that Cabot makes the best sealer, that Thompson's and others that are advertised so widely don't do the best job. Your opinion? Also, my deck was built at least 10 yrs ago and never
sealed, but it's still in good shape. When it was built, I was told to wait 6 mos to seal it and that 6 mos has turned into years. I'm planning to for SURE do it this year, but here are my questions. I have 2 largish dogs (inside dogs, but of course they go outside
several times a day), so I'm going to have to keep them inside and take them out front for pottying during this process. During the years since the deck was built, dirt and fur has accumulated between the boards. I know I have to get it out before doing anything. After that's done and I clean the deck well and while it's drying out, can I let the dogs out there or must they be kept off it since they WILL track in soil from the yard? OR, can I cover the deck floor with a large vinyl tarp during the drying out process so the dogs can go out there? I've also read not to use chlorine bleach on it but to use oxygen bleach because it's less destructive to the wood. What about that?
And last question, once the sealant is put down, would putting a tarp on IT and letting the dogs out be a no-no? If it IS a no-no, is there a sealant that will dry out in 24 hours for sure? Keeping the dogs off the deck is going to be a chore and I'm trying to make my life easier. OH, and one more question. Since the deck isn't brand new, will that effect the kind of sealant I use -- transparent, semi, or whatever?
Hi! I'm am in the process of refinishing Birch veneered kitchen cabinets. They were installed, brand new around 1972. The cabinets were shellacked over the existing hardware and have been
a nightmare to clean and sand. I tried using Tung Oil to finish them, because my husband and I love the grain of the wood. But, it made them a not so pleasing, gold color (which was the color they were when I started) . Has anyone stained these types of cabinet doors with a darker stain, without them looking yellowy/gold? Thanks for any help!
