I just looked at the the UGA article and cannot believe they do not warn against systemic
insecticides. Remember systemics make every part of the plant poison and there is very good evidence that they are responsible for the bee colony collapse. Here is just a general article, but google systemic insecticides and you will never use them again. http://www.gardensalive.com/article.asp?ai=9...
This is how my bathroom turned out. The vanity was a stained golden oak , now I need advice on what to do with the door and door frame on the bath side. The entire house woodwork is golden oak. Should I leave it stained on the bathside or should I paint it white like the vanity ??

Paint it. I had the same dilemma in my old house in KS when we remodeled the kitchen. We
painted it and loved it and sold that house in record time. Not an issue for resale when it fits the space.

When I was introduced to and began posting on this site, it was a DIYer, contractor and designer conversation board. It now seems, with all due respect, to have turned into a
"hobby-craft' discussion board. I can't recall the last time a contractor offered a suggestion to a DIYer technical question. I discussed this a few other members of "hometalk" and they do agree with me.
Sorry if I offended anyone, but I gave up on Decoupouge over 30 years ago.Just had to vent and voice my feelings.

Gary, I agree and don't visit much anymore either. This issue was made a couple of months ago
It was my own fault that I didn't put my dog outside when we left for a few hours. Poor baby couldn't wait for us to get home. He had to go. Now I have a yellow stain. I've tried to get stain out but with no luck. Help.

White vinegar and water. Amazingly it works on lots of different stains. Tried when I was
desperate after trying a ton of products over 3 days and still looking at red kool aid, this took it out. Good luck.
