We want to put the final touches on the room and add accessories. Kristen and I are happy the bathroom remodel is nearly complete.
We are clearing out the carpet and removing the carpet pad on the floor in the master bathroom in preparation for the waterproof laminate flooring. We rip out the carpet by cutting the carpet into a couple of pieces using a box cutter so we can carry the carpet outside to the trash. Next, we rip out the pad using the box cutter too. Then we pull out the tack strips and discover there is more linoleum under the carpet pad too. Next, we rip out the entire linoleum and sweep and clean up all the mess. That really was a lot of mess after we ripped up all the flooring.
Here we are at the beginning of a new year and I want to hide an area of my yard using a recycled chain link gate. We have a storage shed but I need a place to hide flower pots and ladders. My goal is complete concealment of unattractive items in the yard and I think this a great step toward that end.
Generally speaking, a flag pole mount is pretty easy to install. It is a little more difficult to install a flag pole mount on stone. The wind can be very fierce and I didn’t want to drill into the stone, damage the stone, and then for the flag pole to not hold properly in the stone pillar. Maybe I worry too much but I didn’t want to damage the house.
This is my first tile job and I chose to install tile on my backsplash. I didn’t realize it but the tile pattern I chose was not the best tile to choose for a beginner because of the pattern requiring many extra cuts on the tile saw. The blue arabesque tile was purchased by now so the process was already started and would be completed.
Kristen asked for help hanging decorations and objects on the wall at her home. She is having a hard time finding studs to secure the heavy pictures and decorations on the wall. Together, we decided installing a decorative board around the room would be perfect so she could put her decorations anywhere on the wall and know they would be anchored well.
