I just love the look of Curava. I love the different pieces of glass. Cement can be very cold and austere, but when mixed with glass and sea shells it takes on a new look, has a real earthy, warm look and comes in a variety of colors. This product is scratch resistent and heat resistent. It is sealed before installation. … Read More

Since I live in Florida, I don’t have to worry about freeze very often – but this week I did. It has been cold, very, very cold. Excellent advice! Our daughter bought a new house and in the garage of the house was this cabinet. She was going to throw it away, but I took it and we hung it above our kitchen counter. Sunshine, Ray, and Louie finished up the booth and cabinets (trim pieces, crown molding, baseboards, and knobs and pulls), installed the under-cabinet lights, booth light fixture, dimmer switches, and all the appliances.

I had talked about it several times.. and finally convinced Mr.Z and our contractor/cabinet maker son, that we needed to remodel the bathroom now and make it accessible for the elderly and handicap.
As a rule of thumb, artwork should be placed no more than five to nine inches above a sofa and no more than seven to ten inches above a table. The placement of your artwork should also relate to its surroundings. As a guideline for proportion, one or more pictures (including mirrors or other wall décor) should cover about 2/3 of the wall space above the piece of furniture. For example, if you have a 6 foot wide sofa, plan on a single picture or an arrangement that is about 4 feet wide and centered above the sofa.
Wow that is definitely a beautiful shower door! I have been wanting a new one like that for quite … Read More

My family actually lived in a Quonset hut when I was about four years old but I don’t have any real clear memories about how it looked. I wish I did because I am currently writing a book about my family. dahoglund, I understand the energy thing we’re running out of it and it takes longer to get anything done around here. Thanks so much for stopping by and for the sharing.
I was fortunate that were we live there was never any signs of water problems in our neighborhood and with that most of the homes here all have carpeted basements, so just keep the water and dampness in mind when deciding on you finished basement floor. At Thrasher, … Read More
In this poor housing market, Quonset huts are popular with new homeowners as well as with retirees looking for an affordable way to move to a warmer climate. A quonset hut is a type of arch-style, semicylindrical steel building that was used in World War II for equipment storage. Since then, Quonset huts have been used for inexpensive equipment storage in commercial and agricultural settings. In today’s housing market, Quonset-hut homes are a popular option, mainly because they’re less expensive to build or buy than other types of homes and can be built in less time.
If your space does not have an architectural feature to serve as a focal point, you can create one by using, for example, a dramatic (in scale, style, color, design) piece of furniture, a sculpture, a striking painting on an easel or a picture hung on a wall. When the remodeling party was done, … Read More
Do you ever wish you can redo a room in your home? What is holding you back? Many of us fear the cost of home improvements. We refuse to look outside the box. I was one of the countless homeowners who want to remodel but do not have the available funds to do so. But there are many solutions available if you just think outside the box.
This is awesome. I would love to do something like that, but we only have room for a vanity that is about 2 foot square. Maybe if I could find a tall nightstand! 🙂 Great idea, and the dresser makes a beautiful vanity for your bathroom! This is why I’m a blogger and not an interior decorator, just in case you’re wondering. While I can make instantaneous decisions when it comes to food or PTO stuff or my job and such, decorating is … Read More
This article contains some real how to information! not just a bunch of text to get you to click on links. I will give you some real practical advice on how to clean up and repair water damage whether it be from a flood, plumbing leak, or roof leak. First off you need to stop the water! If it is a leak in your plumbing you will probably have to shut the water main off at the street (or pressure tank if you are on a well). If the water is coming from roof damage a tarp will normally work for a quick fix. If it’s from a flood you will need sandbags to try to divert the water away from the house. This will only work for small flooding areas. In a big flood you will just have to wait it out.

I think I would like one. My husband and I talked about building a Quonset hut home before we bought the damned” underground house. I mean that literally because the house has to be damned. Anyway, I’m curious about the insulation. I suppose one would insulate with the amount needed for the area and then wall over it like in a conventional house. Thanks for the information. Oh, the ugly one, the folks were just trying to beautify a plain Jane the best way they could. Living in an ugly home myself, I sympathize.

I’ve spent the last two days prepping walls, priming drywall and painting the trim, ceilings and walls. We’re in the home stretch now and I can’t wait to share photos with you when it’s complete!
Paint the RV Cabinets- Paint is cheap and the right colors can make the space look bigger. Cabinets in a cramped space will be subject to high wear and tear so it was important to do this somewhat risky task right. But coming from a vintage travel trailer with real wood paneling to this poor imitation added further insult to injury… this will make a huge impact in stearing the van away from its eighties slump.
No problem at all. Provided, of course, all the required pieces are in the carton. It probably … Read More
