In need of help! What do I do with this bizarre staircase enclosure? When we moved in three years go, this was what was used as an alternative to spindles and a bannister evidently. It is not weight-bearing, but we need to do something as we had twin boys this past April, and they are already on the move! As I'm sure you can guess, our budget is tiny, really non-existent actually, so anyway we can do this inexpensively would be great. I would rather not board it up as there is a great
deal of light that comes from the window at the top of the stairs. Right now there is a treadmill on this wall, and no other place for it in the house either, so it can't move. Any idea is welcomed.

if the traditional spindle and rail is what you want but too pricey, don't forget the Habitat
for Humanity stores and other construction salvage shops. You would be amazed at what's out there!
I get asked all the time how to get nail polish off of things so I decided to start testing some of my theories. I started by painting my salon-quality nail polish on the wood floor and
then I tried using hydrogen peroxide, De-Solv-It and rubbing alcohol to get it off. I think you'll be surprised at which product got it off and how EASY it was! Click here to get the answer: http://askannamoseley.com/2012/08/get-nail-p....

We inherited our grandchildren's dog when they moved to Colorado, she's a sweet part Lab part something else dog... but she has ruined by front porch area. She digs big holes to lay in or
she sleeps on my front porch, stinky dog smell. Any suggestions?

Yep, ear infections and allergies. Where ever smelly dog lays will smell like smelly dog.
Probably your porch mat. The hands down solution to smelly (especially skunk) is: small box of baking soda, large bottle of hydrogen peroxide and a dash of liquid soap. Full strength for the dog, diluted to spray down the front porch and door mat with pump up sprayer. Rinse after. Sprinkle cayenne pepper where you don't want holes. My Molly Blaze is a Lab/ Border Collie mix. Allergies and ear infections....10 years...ugh....
The old, quality paneling came from my husband's great aunt's house, which is slated to be destroyed. What can I do with the plain, boring sheetrock ceiling to complement the walls, yet not darken the room any more? Oh, and the door needs something, too. It's the same white as the ceiling.

This was in my grandparent's home, I loved it and it breaks my heart when I see it painted or
ripped out and thrown away. Call me sentimental.....
By far, one of the most physically demanding projects I've ever completed, installing this paver path proved to be worth every sore muscle. We've broken down the steps to installing your very own paver path!

If I didn't already have a bad back, I'm sure this project would give me one. It's FAB!
