The Hivemind Improving Homes
Above is a link to the photo I’m referencing.
I put a long crack in my wall trying to foolishly do a handstand. I’ve closed it off, but it doesn’t match the rest of the wall. Would anyone have advice as to best sand this to match the rest of the wall?
P.s. Real novice over here.
Is this possible? Blinds are already installed. So that puts the wand in the corner and I have to reach over furniture or rearrange the living room so that I can get into that corner (where I would otherwise have a bookshelf and loveseat)
I did search this and a couple of other subs. Found information about ordering blinds before installation and picking which side the wand is on, but nothing specific to my request.
I don’t see the same sort of mechanism on the right (to receive the wand) that I see on the left, and I’m wondering if there is a hack, or assembly I can buy for that. maybe there’s something simple I’m not thinking of. TIA.
I've had no issues in the other rooms of the house but the kitchen is a bit of a nightmare:
It's really thin and consists of the yellow outer layer and a backing. The backing can be removed relatively easy but my problem is that I can barely get the front off. It doesn't seem to absorb water even though I perforated the wallpaper and used a wallpaper removal solution. There's also a texture on top of the plaster which seems like glue.
Can someone tell me what type of wallpaper I'm dealing with and what the easiest way to take it off would be?
I would like to i post a crack in my garage so you amazing ppl can look at it and let me know the best course of action before I sign the house , but I’m not able to post a video or photo except the text .
Could anyone help me out here pls ?
Putting a polyurethane topcoat over a kitchen island. Thought I did my research and had a good plan but apparently not. Got what everyone was saying was the best polyurethane which was general finishes, looked up what the best application method was which seemed to be foam brush or foam roller. Since it's a large area and I went with a 4inch foam roller designed for smooth surfaces. I did not shake the can of poly, I only stirred gently and made sure to stir for long enough that it was thoroughly mixed. I kept a decent amount of poly on the roller at all times and rolled very gently, never pushing down with force.
Well..... the smooth finish I was expecting was nowhere to be found. There are thousands of tiny air bubbles everywhere. The you can feel them, the surface is textured.
HOW DO I GET A SMOOTH FINISH. Please help.
Edit: water based poly
Hey. So I'm trying to see if I could reasonably redirect the flow of my backyard gutters. Currently they are split between two sides. The right side does not really take in Alot of roof water. The left side does but it dumps straight into a mulch bed and makes a mess.
Is it possible to jump the gutter down to flow per the green arrow? I'm concerned that 1) this would not be up to some sort of code and 2) the slope is so intense that water would just spill over at the corner.
