Master Bathroom Edition (2)

Today I’m sharing with you a bathroom remodel!! This guest bathroom is actually at my Parents’ house… they did all of the work themselves.

Great tips for decorating that everyone can use! I’ve done most of these myself but I especially like using cardboard boxes for furniture placement, and making paper patterns to arrange on a wall before hanging a grouping of framed art. Angel blessings! Haha, I thought this was going to be a craft hub! My partner and I actually re-did our bathroom counter top with glass beads from the dollar store. Looks great! Linen closet in adjacent bath was reduced to add display space in a bedroom. Chicken wire was used for the cabinet doors.

Of course, care is always warranted as with tile or wood or almost any floor finish. I have seen cans dropped and the linoleum torn. The denting of the wood floor from …

Basement Finishing Videos teaches you how to finish you are looking for basement finishing cost then basement finishing videos would help you.

Due to the unique nature of Artistic Décor Stains neutralization of the stain is not necessary as with most all other acid stains. Plain water will provide as much neutralization as is necessary. Just simply wet the floor, scrub lightly to loosen the slight amount of residue that remains and shop-vac to ensure you remove any residue, usually there is little if any residue.

We also have ideas for the rest of the basement, but they are a bit more flexible. Right now we’re thinking a video area (couch and chairs, decently large screen), a mini-kitchen (sink, microwave and cabinets, perhaps with some kind of counter with seating), an area that could be a ping-pong table or a kitchen table if our parents moved in, and perhaps a …

Designing Wet Rooms For Small Spaces (2)

We’re still putzing along with our little bathroom renovation, moving at the speed of almost-frozen molasses. For this post, I’m going to take you back in time (November) to where we installed the tile flooring, which has surprisingly been the easiest part of this whole adventure thus far (but certainly not without it’s own set of issues).

So you’re ready to redecorate and redesign your bathroom. But dropping $20,000 on a deluxe spa retreat is light years away from what you can afford to spend. Here’s the good news: You don’t need mega-bucks to transform your bathroom into a relaxing, cool space. There are plenty of ways to renovate and redesign on a budget. A room-size area rug should have a 9 to 12 inch border of floor showing between the rug and the wall.

My parents lived in a little Quonset hut village in the early 1950s on a college campus in the Midwest. It was housing for young families and married students. They made life-long friends there. Carpeting remains a popular flooring option for finished basements because of its warmth underfoot. As long as the basement is moisture-free, carpet is a practical option for many homeowners. The cost of carpet and padding varies widely, depending on quality. The Indian Summer Lodge in Houston is a quirky Quonset hut that has been featured in Playboy …

Bathroom Remodeling Long Island NY

Built-in linen cabinet in the hallway was built with this older cottage. New paint and hardware freshened it up.

Everything has gone well. It has taken longer than planned, but the final product is worth it. Some of the reasons for the length of the project seemed to be with materials that were ordered not enough wrong item. Part has to do with us being so picky. But when you pay $14,000 you want it as perfect as you can get it. Tony has been so positive with us. I cannot sing his praises enough.

Things were going along smoothly, until the final section of the hallway wall where we were installing the wainscoting. We found as we began placing the picture frames on that particular wall, that it was bowed. Apparently the stud in the center of that wall section had moved a bit as the house settled. Unfortunately, …

The expense comes if the glass is for a table top (coffee table) where the edges will need to be bevelled smooth for safety and visual effect; for shelving it’s not necessary as the straight cut is safe enough and visually ok. If you’re having the glass cut to size, or you’re cutting your own plate glass, for a protective surface for a coffee table you shouldn’t put the glass straight onto the wood. It should be supported with little rubber feet; which are readily available in most DIY stores and have a sticky back surface to stick in each corner on the underside …
