We're redoing our bathroom and I want to get a copper or bronze sink, I think. But do you have one? Do you love it, or hate it, and what about it stirs your feelings? What about it should we think about before we get one? I'm looking at a drop in or undermount, not a freestanding. Thanks!
I'm about to do a 1000sqft addition on my 1500 square foot single story home in Denver, Colorado and can't believe that it's going to cost me $400k. I'm willing to pay for good quality work and understand that prices have gone up in Denver - but I'd like to hear from others about their remodels and how they went price-wise. I want to make sure we're allocating enough for contingency given the high price starting point. [more inside]
What should I do? How can I feel better about this? [more inside]
Hi all I searched through a bunch of postings about NYC neighborhoods, but I am looking for current advice on where to live. Mr. catrae and lil' catrae and I live in Greenpoint Brooklyn. We have lived here for 9 years. Our building has sold and we will have to move in June. We have a 3 1/2 year old so schools will be a consideration. [more inside]
About a year ago, I purchased a reed diffuser for my office. It was a lovely scent, and I got tons of positive remarks about it; I also just really enjoyed how my office smelled. Now, I don't remember what brand and scent it was, and it doesn't seem to be available anymore anyway. If I tell you everything I can about it, can you help me find out what it was, or even better, get more? Or, if that's impossible, what might be a good replacement? [more inside]
I bought a haworthia about a year ago, when it first looked like this round, happy thing. It now is taller, but looks like this instead. [more inside]
It's hard to find old school fluffy blankets with silk bindings, so I guess I ought to renovate my old one (the binding is getting a bit torn up). First, where can I go to have it sewn? (dress shops near me are super expensive). Second, the current binding is 3" wide, but it looks like they only sell 2" these days. Any ideas re: finding a wider one?
I have two full sheets and some scraps of Rmax Thermasheath poly-iso with foil on both sides. After some research including an earlier AskMefi, I realized it was NOT the right thing for sub-grade basement exterior walls, due to the vapor barrier which will be a place of condensation. So what is it good for? [more inside]
We'd like to control our lighting with our Amazon Dots. But there's so much stuff to look through? Can you help us get our bearings so that we know what we'll need? [more inside]
For real, whenever I look up "plant tree" or anything like that, it's a long, tedious process. I don't have time for all that. I mean, can't I just cast a bunch of seeds and hope for the best? Isn't that what trees do naturally? [more inside]
I have a poster that I want to hang, but I want to avoid just tacking it to the wall because that looks crappy. How can I affordably hang it in a nicer way? [more inside]
Do you know anything about floor sanding/refinishing/restoration? [more inside]
This isn’t a Charlotte Perkins Gibman story, I fear it might be a little more hairy. What do? [more inside]
I would like to buy my husband an Echo Dot for Christmas, but I am technologically challenged and want to make sure I buy the necessary accessories. [more inside]
I am a non-handy person, and need to remove two 1970’s built in glass cutting boards… quickly, and with minimal damage to the surrounding countertops. Suggestions? [more inside]
Our kitchen has ~15 year old Pergo in it (we love it) and we are thinking about extending it into the dining room. It looks like the Marigold Oak or Haley Oak shade. Would we be able to find an acceptable match in the current inventory and just add it on, or are we going to have to rip out all of the kitchen flooring as well? [more inside]
As I've been out walking this year, I've noticed that about 25% of our non pine trees still have leaves on them. Sometimes, it's an entire tree, sometimes, like my backyard, a quarter of the leaves just haven't fallen. On oaks, the leaves have turned brown, however there are some other varieties that remain green. Some of the trees are huge 60 ft trees, and some are newly planted. I live in Maine, so these are normally down and raked by mid November. Any thoughts? Is it climate change?
So, it appears that there is some sort of leak coming from my mother's kitchen sink. When you turn the kitchen faucet on, water leaks from the base of the faucet. Of course, the problem is not as simple as a leaky tap. It appears that the bottom of the cabinet under the sink is rotting away. I'm not a handy person at all and I have no idea who to get to help. Who do I call? [more inside]
Where can I buy higher end fragrance oils for candle making in small quantities or samplers in the kinds of earthier, not sweet or floral scents I want? [more inside]
We are storing some personal items in our house for a family member who is going through hard times. Mainly t-shirts, CDs, small-ish art prints, and some records. When we collected these items, this person's house was horribly infested with german roaches. In an attempt to prevent the spread of roaches from their house to our own home, I put all of the belongings in a plastic container and painstakingly duct-taped the lids to the containers.
