We made this garden walkway with a mold that we purchased at Lowe's. We mixed the Quickcrete up and then poured it into the mold a section at a time. It was almost like making mud pies. It was a bit time consuming but we were very happy with the end result. It has held up very well as it has been down now for about 3 years.
The former owner of our house installed 3 pendant lights kits above the kitchen island. The kits are pretty nice because instead of having to be hard wired in, they screw in just like a
light bulb. So instant transformation! The only thing we didn't like about the pendant lights were the existing pendants. We looked at most of our home improvement stores in the area, but didn't find the look we wanted. So we opted to make our own. Jacque decided she wanted to convert ball jars into pendants...And gave me the responsibility of making that happen.
I plan on replacing my kitchen floor with tile that looks like hardwood. At that time I plan on replacing the kitchen floor I would like to replace my hallway which the kitchen is off of. The problem is the hallway stops just short of my dining room which is hardwood. I don't want to match floor colors nor do I have the money to replace the dining room floor.
Do you think having two different color floors that close together is a wrong way to go?

I think you should always do the same throughout if you can. What if you just removed the
floor trim and like two of every three planks to make them longer and flow into the next room, then just do the same flooring. It makes the space seem bigger and helps for resale.
