Hey everyone. We're discussing our concrete countertop line at Brooks Custom, and deciding what traits do homeowners look for the most. Aside from price point, what's the most important thing FOR YOU when choosing a countertop: style, durability, food prep, versatility, etc.?
We're re-launching our Verdicrete (engineered concrete) line, and it will have a more traditional sealed-and-oiled finish. This is different from our previous
finish that was stain-proof. This will bring the cost down, but still offer an artistic option for concrete countertops, and we'd love to hear opinions!
I have a small stubborn little yorkie and he has destroyed my carpet in less than a year. I won't get rid of the dog (he is my sweetie) but I will get rid of the carpet.
I am thinking about installing Vinyl floor strip that look like wood because I read that they are very tough and will withstand accidents. I don't want to spend a lot of money putting hardwood or new carpet down because I know it will probably get trashed.
Does anyone have an experience with it. Does it look good? Last? Easy to put down?
The first step is to admit you have a problem...my name is Carol and I'm addicted to Mod Podge Glitter. Last week I did a pumpkin and this week I did these fun letters from Hobby Lobby. I used fabric instead of paper which is much easier to Mod Podge; it stretches so you can get the wrinkles out, without tearing. i used a credit card to smooth the fabric out. So go buy some Mod Podge Glitter and put some sparkle in your world!

LOL! While not I'm addicted I totally enjoyed your post!
It's almost a universal consensus that we all hate builder-grade plate glass mirrors. It's so easy to spice them up, so I guess that's the silver lining! I looked into using
hardware-store mosaic tiles, but they were a bit too pricey for me. My solution? Hot glue and individual glass tiles! I bought them at Hobby Lobby for $15. The tiles have had no problems at all staying put in over a year of use. Plus I did it while 9 months pregnant, so it's a very user-friendly project!
