Re: Ceiling Trim Help

I have a small strip of trim where my paneling meets the ceiling. I think it was done because the paneling in my home was installed in a vertical louvered fashion. The strip creates a clean line against the ceiling. In your case though I think no strip would be the best choice. Especially in rooms (...

Case Study Ceramics on Fab

The cylinder style with plinth base is on sale at fab.com this week. I bought the old style (non-plinth) yesterday and saved about $40 on $190 pot. Shipping was reasonable too.

Pinterest?

Is anyone interested in sharing their Pinterest feed? I am cleaning house and redecorating and I need some new inspiration. I'm positive that you all have some great pins out there. I just need to "find" them.

Re: Wow!!

Terrazzo.? Horribly expensive if that's done now so I've heard. I have actually been meaning to ask about the terrazzo. It's not unheard of in DFW to find a house with terrazzo in every room. But after thinking about what the owner said earlier I'm surprised. In a previous thread he mentioned that ...

I'm interested to see how your doors turn out. We have the same project in our future and I am dreading it. Our doors have several layers of oil paint.

I forgot to mention that sadly our original kitchen is long gone but the plans show two side by side 24" ovens. If we were to completely redo our kitchen I might want this Fagor side by side model.

Both the Alpes Inox and TurboChef come in built in models. The Alpes Inox are available in 24" models and are conventional ovens. I believe the TurboChef is a Speedcook oven and I think is only available in 30" models. I can't really say as I have never cooked in either brand. The idea of ...

Congrats on scoring all that terrazzo. When we refinished the terrazzo in our last house I was amazed at how well it cleaned up. It's my all time favorite flooring, sadly we don't have terrazzo in our current house.

FWIW the owner of the house has photos from the early 60's showing the orginal owner's furniture. On the other side of the planter wall was a upright piano. It's not something I would have thought of but it looked great and if I owned the house I would seriously considered buying a piano for that sp...

We were leasing a house until August that had a similar planter wall. The solid top wall has a wrought iron screen above and the planter wall had two suspended globe lights. You may need to find a carpenter to custom build something if you want shelves. http://i53.tinypic.com/2dba4h4.jpg

Re: Grasscloth

filling in the grooves easier that removing paneling? I don't think so. the paneling is not original and it's probably just pin nailed of drywall. maybe some glue. pop right off in ten minutes, if that. plus you're plug outlets will position better. I wouldn't do a bodge job. you'll feel much bette...

Grasscloth

If I were you I would consider putting grasscloth over the existing paneling. You would need to fill the grooves and tape the seams but all in all it would be much easier than removing the paneling and all the trim. It would still be period appropriate although I'm not sure if that matters to you.

We went with Ikea too to keep costs low and added Dwell Studio bedding from Target. Throw in a vintage buffet and in the end we splurged on the Luca Glider.

The best painter I know in that area is Ronny Coric. He's also does decorative concrete projects. But I don't think he's taking on any new projects until the end of the year. You might call and check though.
