Commented 19 hours ago
I have a ceiling fan in my livingroom that was working just find until it stopped. I replaced
the switch one that has a up and down for fan and light got at home depot. Could I have pulled some of the wiring loose in the ceiling that connects to the fan? Help it is hot and I need it to run!! Thanks
I'm doing a screen porch makeover at the moment and wanted to add a bit of light over the drop-leaf table. Using some grapevine balls and white lights with brown wires I put together an little porch chandy in no time!
If you live in a house like me with big wheels and roller skates buzzing by on your hardwood floors then you know after time your floors begin to take a beating. And it's not just the big
wheels, it's the sun and foot traffic that help the floors lose their once upon a time luster and shine. Rather then going through the process of resanding and restaining , I occasionally will use a product call reviver to help give back some some of the "newness" to my hardwood flooring. For a quick demonstration and to see the big wheel culprit , come visit me on my blog. #springcleaning
Here are 4 simple fixes you can do over the weekend (and between soccer or softball games for the kids!!!!).
Fix #1 - Tighten all the hinge screws. Yes, believe it or not using the door jiggles screws loose. This is way too easy but effective.
Fix #2 - Replace all the small screws (3/4 inch hinge screws should be banned) with two inch wood or deck screws that will ensure your hinges never come loose again.
Fix #3 - Add golf tees to enlarged screw holes. Employ this technique when your screws spin without gripping the wood in the door or frame. If you have a hollow core door this may not work if it's been trimmed down excessively but still give it a shot.
Fix #4- Place cardboard shims behind hinges. Where do you get the cardboard? Shoe boxes, they work great.

P.S. This could be my last post on Hometalk. I'm running the Pittsburgh Marathon relay and although my distance is only 6.1 miles there's a 50/50 shot I might need CPR. So if there's no post next week you know the race was a disaster-LOL.
