  • Can we replace built in kitchen cabinets?

    Best answer: If you like the layout of the kitchen and the frames of the cabinets are still in good strong condition, you may want to consider removing all of the doors and hardware hinges. If you are left with a solid cabinet structure, then it would be wise to just refurbish the frames and get new cabinet doors and hardware for an updated look. There are companies that specialize in this type of restoration of existing kitchen cabinets. I would try that route first before considering deconstruction.

    But, to answer your question directly: YES, you can replace/rebuild anything. The bigger question is: what is your budget for such a renovation? When one begins to change structural elements of a home, then you come into the demo part that requires a lot more work, which means a lot more money. It sounds like walls and perhaps soffits and the ceiling and possibly the floor surrounding built in cabinets will all be effected and have to be put back together once demoed. This could cause a domino effect of unforeseen expenses.

    Personally, I would get quotes to refurbish with new cabinet fronts AND a complete demo job with new cabinets before removing even a knob. Oh, speaking of knobs, I found this great place that has knobs that will save you a lot of money...99centknobs.com. Check it out.

  • Can I paint the lid to my iced coffee cup?

    Best answer: Ideally you would want model airplane plastic paint. The acrylic might peel. But beware of anything that might melt it. If I had a water based acrylic spray on hand I would go for it, then touch it up if it chips.

    I’m looking to put a closet system in my closet and there are a couple small doors in the ceiling. I don’t even know how to describe it (as you can tell my the question title). It looks like they’ve been painted over long ago and I’m not even able to open without cracking the paint. I’m wondering when putting a shelving system if I need to leave room to access these and how much room would be needed between the top of the shelving unit. Thanks!

  • Is there enough room for 3 people fit on the queen bed ?

    Best answer: A queen bed is only 60" wide. That leaves a 20" space allowance per person. Queens are typically about 80" long. So of three people sleep sideways on the bed, then they will have about 27.5" of sleeping space each. Personally, I would get no, as in zero sleep if I had to share a queen size... show more

    Personally, I would get no, as in zero sleep if I had to share a queen size bed with two other people.

    Certainly with SEVEN people, you all can split the cost of TWO rooms, yes?

    I had to go in the morning after pill one time. They made me sit In a room with like a label on the door saying what it was so I shuffled in quickly. Across from this room is another room which has a curtain rather than a door for some reason. the nurse made me get a cup of water from the bubbler outside the door and the other nurse obviously had people in the room across from me. Well turns out my mums friend was in that room - it’s like where they take your info etc and they left the curtain wide open. She saw me and then told my Mother so next minute my mums messaging me. I’m pretty mad that they violated my privacy like that.

    Should I paint this lamp or nah?

    My neighbor gave me this lamp while moving. It's really pretty but it doesn't match my living room and I'm thinking of painting it white. Opinions?

    We are doing a re-model of our master bedroom, bath, and entry and need to know from the experts what need to stay, and what needs to go. Our house architecture is french country with huge entry, tall ceilings, even a real slate roof. We have a massive, ornate sleigh bed. Stay or go? We have a huge porcelain Dresden chandelier hanging from 20 feet above a spiral staircase. Stay or go? We have a 10 foot high arch/gothic dining room window that has a beautiful oak stain on the inside with divided light. Keep it stained? Everything we see right now in master baths is white, white, white. But is that too trendy and will soon go out of style? thank you.
