The Project Will Take a Few Months

In fact it would be a much shorter thing if there was more money, but that is not how this one is going to work. I know this guy and I am not going to get in too deep with him. It is not like he is trying to cheat anyone, but you simply do not want to take too much for granted with him. The last time I did some plantation shutters for him. He bought them and I put them in, it was a nothing job that I knocked out in a couple of hours. However he took about two and a half months to pay me for the job.… Read More

Gutters That Come in Various Colors

I want to get some gutters put onto my house because the gutters I have are really old and metal and they do not look very good. They are dented and warped, plus rusting in spots. I just had the exterior of the house painted, and in general, I have been doing projects in order to renovate the house. I want to get colorbond gutters installed on the roof of my house next, and I will need for the gutters to be matched to the new colors of the house. I am looking for a color that is a pretty close match, or at least so close, you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between the two colors without looking very hard.

I would go ahead and take down the gutters myself, so that the contractor that I hire to put up the new gutteres does not have so … Read More

How To Make Your Rest room Remodel Mold Free

I lastly discovered a similar product that may be a paint scraping software too. I was so happy I’m now capable of present you where you should purchase a fantastic muliti use instrument as this. See the Link Under the LARGE Picture.

For the backsplash tile I knew I wished a easy white subway tile with a platinum grout. My heart was also set on the charcoal Heritage Bertazzoni vary and hood, however with it being double the price we decided to go with the stainless and use the heritage hood to tie in the black in the kitchen. Nervous about how this combo would look collectively (after all it was the very last thing to reach and be installed) we’re actually pleased with the way it all came together. We each like to prepare dinner so we couldn’t wait to have a pleasant range to take action.

Many people watch for IKEA kitchen sales but in my expertise, the savings of buying OTHER materials on sale is commonly missed. Whereas it is easy to only order all the things from IKEA at one time, saving on home equipment could be substantial. Typically, you may get good appliances for lower prices when you maintain your eye out for gross sales, particularly in early winter.

The easiest way to clarify is to point out you so e-mail to to request copies of our consumer information. Those I can ship. They won’t match your kitchen, no matter how close they seem to, so you won’t get free design, but you’ll … Read More

Vintage Bathroom Remodel

People are more cautious than ever when loosening their purse strings. We’ve all learned that becoming educated consumers not only helps us get the right products, but get them at the right price. Most people don’t know what’s involved in getting their bathrooms remodeled by contractors, and because of that, they don’t know how much it should cost. Here, we’ll discuss the general guidelines for pricing.

Not surprisingly after a few days of this, Boyfiancé and his dad took it upon themselves to install the new toilet. Fasten cement board with special, coated cement-board screws spaced 6 in. on butt joints and every 8 in. in the middle of sheets. In the back you’ll see the two working tail lights, the license holder with a faux light above it. Perhaps it worked in its early day. Now it just looks pretty. Hiding behind the toilet tank was the original, hideous, … Read More

How to create a new run of garden fencing

Is your garden fencing run looking tired and old? Are the panels cracked and full of gaps between the slats of wood? Are the posts bent out of shape, wonky, and crooked? Are there no gravel boards, post caps, or finials to be seen? If the answer to any of these questions is a ‘yes’, it’s time to update your garden fencing run.

A proper run of good standard fence panels and accompanying accessories is an important part of any garden. Not only does a strong boundary of sturdy, robust panels offer a little extra security, but also add to the appearance of your garden. Fencing can almost be thought of as the picture frame within which your garden is displayed. It’s important then, to ensure your panels and posts look attractive and remain secure.

Which fence panels to choose?

There are so many different fence panel designs nowadays that … Read More

French Inspired Bathroom Remodel, Carrera Marble Subway Tile, Hex Tile, And A French Stone Sink

Part of any good bathroom renovation, especially in the case of a walk-through closet and en-suite combination, will include renovating your walk-through closet. Some might advocate re-purposing the walk-through area, so that the bathroom can be expanded, but this would also entail changing the footprint of the original bathroom. If you already have limited storage in the bedroom, this may not be your best solution.

When looking to replace counter tops, go with granite. Most granite is attractive looking, durable, reasonably priced and is able to withhold hot products. Also, because it is so hard, it will not scratch, blister, or crack. It is easy to clean and does not wear down like other counter tops. I was in shock that it was different shades of blue, and that one of those shades was the SAME as my wall color!

However, there are other alternatives that homeowners need to be … Read More

Tips And Tricks For Planning A Bathroom Remodel

It’s really a pain to blog from my cell phone and my part 1 post a few days ago was really incomplete. Here’s to a sleepless night – I’ve been up for hours – and a couple of hours to do a little blogging.

Tear out the existing piping (Photos 5 and 6). Then frame the 2×6 walls that will contain the new plumbing and the opposite end of the shower base (Photos 8, 9 and 14). It’s easiest to nail the bottom plate to the floor and the top plate to the ceiling, then fill in the studs one at a time by toenailing them in at the top and bottom. Stack the studs directly in front of the old ones wherever possible. Space the studs in the center of the shower about 12 in. apart to leave room for the shower valve and showerhead. The studs behind the … Read More

Bathroom Remodeling & Renovation Services

How often do you see a filthy spa bathroom with a mildewed ceiling? If spa owners let their bathrooms deteriorate like that, they certainly won’t receive many customers. No matter how spacious or well-decorated your bathroom is, it will not become a true place to relax unless it is sparkling clean. So the first step of creating a bathroom spa is to make everything look spotless. Pay extra attention to all the corners and hard-to-reach spots. Throw away old bottles of shampoo and soap that have been sitting there untouched for ages.

I think a touch of black in a room makes things elegant. We spied this little daisy loving girl in a gold and black velvet frame at an estate sale for $4. The Fashionista loved her 60’s era bouffant hairdo so she came home with us. While feeling crummy, my life was enriched by lots of conversations like this. Everyone has a story. Even when I didn’t have much strength I could still listen and encourage. Spread thin-set mortar on floors under cement board with … Read More

IKEA Kitchen Cabinets FAQ

Our bathroom design is the perfect solution for the old, heavily used, small bathroom that you can never quite get clean enough. We not only pulled a few rabbits out of the hat to produce features that make the room easy to clean but also used smoke and mirrors to make it appear much larger.

A patterned, decorative band of small, one inch, contrasting tiles was let into the new shower enclosure, and continued around the rest of the new bathroom’s walls to make a wainscoting border, with larger tile below the decorative border, and painted walls above. Decorators began offering their insight and soon how-to-manuals and television programs featuring redecorating and interior design gained popularity with the masses.

Below is the bedroom we turned into an office/den. We replaced the stained blue carpet in all four bedrooms with a warm, neutral brown, which, if you looked closely, was mixed … Read More

Many tubs and showers have ceramic tile on the walls. If so a special drill bit must be used to drill the mounting holes for your new panel as a regular bit will at best do nothing and will more likely crack the tile and ruin it. Just slip them on and slide into all those small spaces that mops can’t go! Perfect if you only have a small area that needs to be cleaned. They are available for men or women and feature various colors.
