  3. Working on the stained glass for the front door

    oh, please do! I've been wanting to do this!
  4. Painting the exterior

    Wow, thanks for all the great advice. Will check w/ DH to see if he has any drywall compound. I do have gesso, so I may go that route. Thanks again!    
  5. Painting the exterior

    HI All, So, I've learned my lesson about "following" topics that I might need later! A few months ago, there was a thread going about painting the exterior of a house. The originator didn't want to put up siding, but didn't like the "rough" look of just painting the plywood exterior. Someone suggested prepping the exterior walls with something (?) that would help to smooth out the surface. Does this ring any bells?
  6. Shingles and interior walls questions

    great, thanks!
  7. Who occupies your houses?

    In January, I was talking to my mom about how I'd always wanted to build a boarding house. You could then have different tenants with different themed rooms. I wanted four tenants to begin with, plus the war(WW2) widow and her little boy who own the house. I knew I wanted a traveling salesman, an artist and a (messy) college student. My mom suggested a cat lady for the fourth. One night, when I couldn't sleep. (coffee before bed, BAD). It all fell into place. Miss Beesly is the artist. Mr. Halpert is the traveling salesman who is secretly in love with Miss Beesly. The college student is Andy (but he goes to FSU) and the cat lady is, of course, Angela. BTW, her cats are Oscar, Kevin and Dwight. The widow lady is Holly and her little boy is Michael.

    Mike, So when you do this, you use the paint you're going to feature and not primer? I think I'm going to try this on the exterior of my house, since I won't be doing siding.

    Well, I guess great minds think alike! I'll look forward to seeing how you use the paper.

    recut the stair opening. Don't like the floor. You can see where I patched the original stair opening. Might be a good place for a rug!

    Love the colors in this. I saw this paper today at Hobby Lobby and wasn't sure if it would work scale-wise. It looks great!
