    Hey, Does anyone know a way round this? Matt paint has been used over the top of silk paint, which may have been used over the top of bathroom paint, and the result (unsurprisingly) is a crazed and cracked surface. Is there any kind of undercoat or something that could be put on top of this...

    I bought new polish today (Sally Hansen XL Xtremewear in White On) and it seems every time I paint my fingernails with a thick polish, I get it all over the skin next to my nail and it streaks. Is there an easier way to do this? LOL

    .....that is the question! This should be simple, but here's my problem. In my Family room, I have 3 walls of tongue and groove knotty cedar plank wood, and the other wall is covered in "aged" red brick. And even though I thought I would love them together at the time, the knotty cedar has...

    Dry Pack Canning with Paint Cans might give this a go... the oxygen absorbers and baggies inside would be very important.

    I deal with a lot of allergies, but handle them pretty well. Mostly I'm allergic to cats, dogs, rabbits, mold, dust, grass that has been mowed, cigarette smoke, eucalyptus, ivory soap.... But tonight something weird happened. Hubby and I were painting the bathroom, using Dutch Boy paint...

    I just saw this in the Style at Home newsletter and thought it looked really cool. Modern paint effects - Painting - How-To - Style At Home My daughter's room has a plywood panel on one wall (plumbing access) that we need to cover. We've had several ideas - wallpaper, spackle & paint...

    I found this little calculator online which helps you figure out how much paint you will need to complete a room. I'm not sure how accurate it is, as different brands seem to give different levels of coverage, but I thought someone might find it useful as a way to estimate costs if they had a...
  13. Home Environment
    There is a bit of my floor that has some dried paint on it - the little splatter of dots from painting with a roller (I did not do this - I always wipe up when the paint is wet). What is the best way to clean this without damaging the finish on the hardwood?

    I've been looking at pictures of home exteriors that paint companies put up to show off different paint colours. They always use homes with interesting features which accent the colour. What about homes with extremely boring exteriors? Like, zero architectural features - save for a couple...

  19. Secondhand Shopping
    The area where I live now has only 4 thrift shops, so my frugal shopping is limited, but my imagination is not. A little paint, material and time will turn any trash to treasure. There was this flea market in Ill. I would take my merchandise( I was selling hair clips and bows) out to sell and...
