Pale Yellow Brick House - Help! We are using our tax return to paint our house. The majority of it is a pale yellow brick but the people before us built in the carport and that part is wood, as well as each end of the house (We're only painting the wood, not the brick). It's a single story ranch style home. We have a white garage door. I'm really nervous about picking a color and hating it so I could really use some help. I would attach a picture but I don't know how.

Paint the entire house, including the brick. Buy several samples of paint you think might work and paint 4x4 sections on the house. Label them a, b, c etc. then look at them at different times of the day and in different light conditions. Ask your friends to come by and vote. Then pick the one you like best and tell your spouse/partner you have better taste in paint than he/she does. Always works for me ;)

Cabinet help - Please give me ideas on the best cabinet color to choose to go with oak flooring. I have existing black granite, may keep or replace with lighter if I choose a dark cabinet? How do I post a picture?

Did you choose a color? If yes, please post a picture. I have the same oak cabinets and floor and I also need some ideas for a new color.

You could use Minwax Polyshades to wipe on in one step and change the color plus refresh the finish. Here is a link showing how to use Cherry to make a darker walnut color over this yellowish tone you have: http://www.minwax.com/expert-wood-tips/change-stain-color-with-polyshades/?gclid=CPC-uZ_n0b0CFcyTfgodSm4ATw There is a color chart on that site for more options for light, medium or dark colors that you are trying to change. Good luck! PS you can just wipe this product on with a soft cloth, we've done our cabinets a few times with it just to refresh the same finish.

Karen C. you could add castors but it would involve drilling holes to bolt them in but you could then seal it with bathtub caulking

These are inexpensive water troughs for livestock. I spent about $75 each on mine. They are made so that two nest together (one a little smaller) so I fit them in the back of a Mazda hatchback car easily. Drilling holes is easy. Then line bottom with garden fabric, put in 3-4 large upside down buckets so you don;t have to fill with so much soil) and throw in a bag of light weight lava rock around the bottom for drainage. Then it only takes 2 bags of soil potting mix and you can still lift it with a friend if you need to move it.

If you're on a budget, like many of us, you can get these a lot cheaper at a Farm & Fleet Store, any farm supply outlet, Ace Hardware, Tractor Supply. They won't have holes, but it's easy to have someone drill some holes, or if you do a "garden Lasagna" set up, you won't even have to drill holes, just start with twigs and small branches in bottom, followed by smashed up pop cans, then paper, and finally dirt. Google this technique for more info & good luck! I plan to do raised gardens this year too due to a disability

re too hot; - I am buying used versions of this on Craigs list, for a country garden setting on a farm. I hope to reduce my bending while tending plants. I am sure they will require extra water and could get hot in the south. But for my zone 3 area, if they warm early that's good for me. These are called stock tanks and can be purchased online and at farm stores.
