    A huge part of the paint chipped off of my bathtub and I want to repaint it but I can't afford to get it professionally done and my apt management won't do it. I was thinking I could use normal spray paint and a coat of something waterproof on top. How long would this last? I only have the lease at my apartment for about 8 months so it doesn't need to last long .

The management also made me sign lead and asbestos thing on move-in and said not to poke holes in the ceiling or lick the paint. I rly want to put up this yoga swing though. I have no doorways appropriate for it, its got to go in the middle of the ceiling in the living room.

  • How much did you pay for blackout shades?

    Best answer: Shades are very expensive and there is no real good reason why they should be. I know, it is crazy how they are priced. We had shades on the windows.

    Best answer: Shades are very expensive and there is no real good reason why they should be. I know, it is crazy how they are priced.

    We had shades on the windows. The furnace puffed back and spread soot all over the house. The furnace company's insurance company paid for all new blinds. The cost for 9 double cell blinds (approx. 50"wide x 42" long) was EIGHT GRAND, yes $8,000.00. Its not like it is new technology or remotely controlled, we are talking about draw string blinds in off white, not even black out shades!!

    Go on the internet and google "Discount Blinds" to comparison shop.

    You may be better off having draperies made with lined black out lining.

  • $17K to remodel small bathroom?

    Best answer: Believe it or not, that is the going rate. My client just gutted her bathroom and replaced everything in her condo. A small bathroom, like yours; and she paid $27K...however, she did tile the floor, the shower area and had a decorative tile boarder go around the room.

    Best answer: Believe it or not, that is the going rate. My client just gutted her bathroom and replaced everything in her condo. A small bathroom, like yours; and she paid $27K...however, she did tile the floor, the shower area and had a decorative tile boarder go around the room. I was shocked to realize how much she spent. I helped her pick the tile only as she asked my opinion when I was decorating another room in her home.

    I would never spend that amount on a bathroom. I would ask for a detailed list of the cost breakdown. If you are in control of researching your fixtures (lights, toilet, sink, faucets, vanity and shower/tub) you can get better bargains. The people who remodel your bathroom do not bargain shop for you, they get what they can when they can get it and mark it up just for handling it. I would get more quotes and even consider a handy man. I mean really, you are keeping all the plumbing right where it sits, right? Do yourself a favor and just research how much things really do cost. You do not need to spend over 20% of the value in your house on a small bathroom.

    Be resourceful.

  • Are you aloud to revise in your bedroom? Or is it best is you do it in another room?

    Best answer: I probably would have been allowed to study in my bedroom, but didn't. Too many distractions there. I'd go to the kitchen table.

  • Is it a good idea to buy kitchen and bathroom faucets over eBay or Amazon?

    Best answer: We have done that and it has worked fine. Buy direct from a large internet faucet supply house for the best price using comparisons for the same faucet on ebay, amazon, low price search engines, etc. However, you will have to select and specify what faucet you want, so stay with the famous big names like Kohler... show more
    Best answer: We have done that and it has worked fine. Buy direct from a large internet faucet supply house for the best price using comparisons for the same faucet on ebay, amazon, low price search engines, etc. However, you will have to select and specify what faucet you want, so stay with the famous big names like Kohler or Delta. You will also have a larger selection over the internet than the few that are handled by brick store retailer. Delta has a faucet that you touch to turn on and off. It works great in the kitchen to keep water spillage less.
