i want to "update" my 1960's pink bathroom. At this point I am not sure what colors to use to redo. The pink tile still is nice, the floor needs replacing and maybe a few other things. What colors??? Since it us a small anthropomorphic.
there is a crimson king maple in the front and will shade the right side of the house some. the drive that lead into the portaco doesn't have anything to obstruct the morning sun. The front of the house faces east. drive is south so might get some afternoon sun on the right side of the house then. I posted a pic before but this might give everyone a better idea of what I am working with.

I think it needs some color. A better shape to the front bed. A beautiful dogwood on the left
side for some shade and style. Hosta, and some oddly shaped shrubs.

An exterminator told my friend that when you begin to see ants, they are the scouts. Stop these and you won't have ants. My son discovered that if you spray them with Windex (or any other glass cleaner), they are exterminated. Keep after it for a while and you won't have ants. We have used this for years. 2 days ago our humming bird feeder leaked onto the concrete front porch...the liquid got down in the crack between brick and concrete so there was not way to flush it out. Ants
appeared quickly, I sprayed them with Windex. Watched through the day and kept spraying them. Now ant free! Safe for kids, pets and environment! It is worth a try before you spend hundreds.
Do you absolutely love Stained Glass? It's very expensive and permanent. What happens if you grow tired of it? Here's a splendid way to bring Stained Glass into your home by using
colored tissue paper and liquid fabric starch. Then when your decor taste changes, simply wash it off.
This how I did it and it's AS EASY AS 1 ~ 2 ~ 3
1. Determine what Stained Glass image you want; something as simple as geometric shapes or more complexed, like flowers, scenery, etc.
2. Cut shapes or rip up bits of tissue paper. The pieces will fit into your design like mosaic tiles. (I used black colored tissue as the 'lead' to get the Stained Glass look)
3. Brush on the liquid starch to small sections of the window at a time. Place the tissue paper directly on the wet window and gently smooth out. Overlapping creates nice effects and mistakes makes interesting design!
