Schools almost over and for Christmas he received new curtains, sheets, a fleece blanket, and a few pieces of rustic decor for his upcoming Summer room redo.

  8. Just Tips
    I have tried ammonia, degreasers, scrubbing, nothing takes the oily stuff or stains off of the kitchen walls. They used to be white. The people who were here before us smoked, fried food, and I don't know what all. They never cleaned the walls. I have gotten the nicotine yellow off, but I...
  9. Quilting
    I want to put a design wall in my basement quilting/sewing/art studio. I am currently using a flannel sheet tacked to the wall. Sometimes the quilt pieces stick to it and sometimes not. Seems the bigger they are, the less they stick. I've heard felt over insulation board is a good design...

    Smoke or Dust Stains On Walls Some stains just happen - you didn't drop or spill anything but there it is.

    I have been thinking of redoing my living room, our house is provided by Matthew's boss, but we are allowed to make changes if it is for the better. About two yrs ago, I helped a friend do her living room in Craft paper. Yes.....that brown stuff. You tear the craft paper into decent size...

    We are basically starting over in the picture department. I don't have much on the walls at all. I have only a few pieces of framed art, pictures of the kids, some floral items, a mirror, and a couple of sconces. I'm hoping to slowly add some pictures and wall art that I love in the next few...

    I have yet to find something to clean my walls the way I want. Usually I'm left with streaks where the cleaner didn't finish the job. I'm looking for a good wall cleaner. I have semi-gloss paint on my walls. It doesn't necessarily have to be homemade. Help! I want clean walls for...
