So Ive pretty much re-done every other area/room in the house except the garage. Its been bugging me for a long time. The walls had alot of holes in them and the old cabinets and brown peg board made it look pretty shitty. Also my brother is an electrician so everytime we re-do a room he’s upgraded the electric and ran new circuits because the whole house was originally done on like 3 circuits so this led to lots of wire being run from the panel through the garage into various parts of the house, so a main thing I wanted to accomplish was to cover all that mess up and put in new and less cabinets (since most of the old cabinets were filled with crap anyway and took up alot of space.)
Any suggestions how to decorate around this vent to take attention away from it?
I can’t think of anything…
looks fine, I think you’re bringing attention to it, only thing I can think of is painting it the same color as the wall
Oddly enough, I never even thought of that.
I just moved into a new apartment that has a fair amount of exposed brick. The only problem is it’s painted over in white. Would the best way to go about it be paint thinner and a chipper? How messy/long would this process be?
I have no clue I’ve never had to remove paint before.
Painting white rather than replacing or restaining (don’t try to convince me otherwise – already made color scheme choices around it)..
Prime (oil based)
Paint (oil based kitchen and bath)
Too much sanding? I need a specific brush for oil based versus the latex we’ve used in the rest of the house, right?
I’ve got some concrete lawn furniture that is in desperate need of a repaint. It still has some old paint on it and I’m just wondering what the process is.
I would powerwash it to clean as much old paint and dirt off as possible before repainting.
Update 5/28 – scroll down for pics
This room is going to be dedicated as a man room. Basically it’s a room where I can escape from "teh wife" and play some video games/use the computer. I’m also going to be setting up a 5.1 surround sound for playing music off my computer
It currently has wood paneling covering the bottom half of the wall and is painted YELLOW up top
I want to tear it out and just paint it one solid color, but some people are telling me if I select another color up top that it will look better.
First things first, I’m a complete newb with plumbing. So, please give me a break if I’m not using the correct terminology.
I’m replacing the sink in my bathroom. I put the new sink in with a new faucet, but now the drain in the sink doesn’t line up the same with the trap pipe underneath. What can I do to get the new drain connected?
Quick description: I have what appears to be (white) PVC pipe coming from the wall for waste. It is currently connected to a (black) ABS p-trap which is now about 2" away from the new drain. The original drain was right in front of the waste pipe in the wall. The new one has shifted slightly away from the wall and slightly to the right which is preventing the connection from lining up.
