The furniture has a thin layer of varnish. I know it is thin because my daughter spilled nail polish on it and when I wiped it off the varnish and the color came off the drawer. I want to do it in a matte white/cream. Any suggestions? Thanks
My husband and I are going to be tackling our bathroom reno first (for those who have been following my questions, kitchen is winning out for next year, bathroom is going to start the
year off; thank you for your help!) and I came across this picture on Pinterest and was curious if it was something we could do ourselves.
I love the idea of the inset in the bathroom. Not necessarily the entire length of the wall, but potentially the length of our vanity, which is 30". I know that there is an inset behind our bathroom mirror that we've yet to close off (from a medicine cabinet that the previous owners actually covered up with another giant medicine cabinet that was 36" long and was not set inside the wall). So I know that we could potentially do an inset as long as 16" in between our studs (we have studs every 16" // house built in 1950). But would it be possible to run it as long as 30" if we cut into the studs? I am unsure how that would affect the integrity of the wall and the overall structure of the house, which is why we're waiting. I also do not know if I should be hiring a contractor for this. We'd like to save as much money as possible, as we're pretty big DIYers.
Hi friends! I need to know if I can tear this wall down? I want to renovate my kitchen to give it more space and take that wall out of the way and have an open floor plan, but that wall, Im just not so sure about it.
Hi Everyone: It's been 5 years since I bought my condo so, I can't quite leave. The elephant, I mean, the gentleman who lives above does nothing but disturb my slumber. I've tried
EVERYTHING to get sleep and nothing works.
SO, I am yearning to build a soundproof sleep pod over/around my bed. Has anyone done it? Do you have any suggestions for wood, soundproof supplies? Anything?I'm a bit stumped but, it will happen!:)Thanks much.
The previous owners made a stupid box looking fireplace. I want to upgrade! Please see the pics and let me know if this is work you can do. I'm getting quotes together and would like it done ASAP if possible. I live in McDonough, Ga.
Has anyone ever used this company before, or know of anyone who has used it? Does it work, and hold up well? Anyone in the Katy/Houston area in particular? Any and all comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
I purchased a home with an unfinished basement. It has framing/installation/some electrical and roughed in plumbing. So I spoke with an Licensed electrician about wiring it out to code
and him pulling a permit. He advised me if he pulled the permit it would have to be for the full job not just electric so it would be better if I pulled an home owners inspection permit because I'm doing the basement in stages. I called and requested this and I was told it was 71.50 a sq ft and 4.50 per something else. Well I have 1200 Sqt so just adding that together that tells me that can't be right as that is about 85,000 bucks. I question why it would be so much to to finish my basement and was told thats the system and they hung up on me. I called back and got someone else and rephased the question still to get told they needed to know the full amount I was going to spend to finish the basement.
I purchased a large 12'X16' utility shed to fix the inside up as an office. The interior is very cute and welcoming, but the outside is an eyesore in my backyard. We've thought of
building a porch on it and painting the front door a pretty color, but? The porch idea would be the width of the building 12' and 4' out. I thought of columns but that is as far as I have gotten. Help please from you wonderful creative people. I will try and get a picture in a day or two.
