About me:
I'm a do-it-selfer who met a girlfriend who is the same, and we like just to do to see what we get. We are both frugal, so we get our supplies cheaply...but we rarely throw away. If a mind project goes sour, we are not afraid to scrap it...and start anew In my avatar i'm standing next to Joe DeMarco's metal art work 
My favorite style:
We both love the rustic wood look 
My next house project:
Our next house project is to add a Sun room. Why ?
1) She : It's going to be primarily her sitting/reading room
2) Us : It's going double as our mini greenhouse because we both love
growing plants.
3) He : I, for my personal endeavor, this sunroom is to be use as a solar
collector and that is my primary purpose for wanting one.

Are you trying to make your cabin a little more rustic?

If you want aged wood and can't find it, why don't you make your own? Here's a video I found on youtube showing how to do it using white vinegar and steel wool.

On the underside of the top horizontal molding (in recess) can you mount your shades there ? If it feels like it's just sheetrock predrill the holes and install toggle bolts.

You could also try a floating header (similar to your original idea). Ultimate Install makes them - they made this one for me since there was no upper wall to attach the blinds to and they were too wide and heavy for a side mount.

Black cat, thanks for the tip. I did see their site online. Is the header kind of a tension rod? And are they expensive? This may be an option....thx

The easiest/fast way is to add a ledger board horizontally on side of shed, and one on the cinderblock wall. And simply lay the board on top. Screw down. Done

But overtime, water is going seep in and ultimately rot/mildew behind the ledger board on the shed. To avoid this add some flashing (thin metal of aluminum or copper)

I hate when that happens. But If you pull REALLY hard the hook will straighten out. After i got the hangar out here's what i did for plan B. I poured a lot of drain-O into the drain, then filled the bathtub to capacity (weight of water equals water pressure) with very hot water. Simply stand by and be patient

For our area this year was a pretty mild summer. Used the AC maybe 3 times, rest of time used the less energy hogs of fans. Why decide? Lots of ceiling fans come with light combo, and some come with the blades flippable, i.e. white on one side and wood finish on the other

A lot depends on the site. Some degree of privacy can be created with landscaping and the placement of the windows. Obviously lights installed in the bathroom can provide the light level you desire day or night. Also, whatever psychological disorder one might have also is a factor.

There are so many options for window coverings to give you privacy, and with big windows you can hopefully get great natural light.

Drive around the neighbourhood (go to Aurora because there's lots of homes there in the same style as your own). Get some ideas of what works and what you like.

I agree with hatetoshop. One of the cheapest, easiest ways to get an idea of what you like on a home is to take an hour and drive around your town looking at homes. Take your partner with you, and point out to each other homes you like, and explain why. I do this with my husband as we're driving as we take the back routes a lot. It's a good way to see what works on a home and what doesn't.

Sorry, per your description i have absolutely no idea of what you mean. What's throwing me off further is the plain wood vs the red painted ones. Did you ultimately decide to paint them red instead of staining ? The red looks really good by the way, but to be truthful i wouldn't thought of that...thanks for sharing

You are going to need to find a wood finisher to straighten out that trim. Not only is the skirting on the bottom incorrect but it appears the crown molding was cut incorrectly and is upside down to boot. Additionally, he didn't follow the demarcation in the upper wall or alternatively flesh out the wall above the unit.

As this was made from a paint grade wood and not a stain grade you will have to paint. Painting will require sanding a good wood primer, more sanding and 2 coats of paint with even more sanding between coats. I would remove all the hardware before doing that. Personally I would have a professional in to spray paint it as the job is going to be pretty intensive.

If you do choose to do this yourself. Application of both the primer and the paint is best with a small foam hand held roller and a brush for all the corners.

I'm really sorry this happened to you I suggest pursuing the matter in terms of payment.

Gutters and downspouts are not a decor item. They should be whatever color makes them disappear.

There is no right or wrong. It depends on your gutters and downspouts. There are some beautiful ones out there and you would want them to stand out but if they are the everyday common ones, I would try to blend them with the house. I have white gutters and dark brown down spouts. They match the house colors and blend in beautifully.

Bed is the focal point of the bedroom. change the bedspread. use pillows and throws on the bed. if you like then you can also use canopy bed. put the beside table and night stand for lamp. use rug under the bed. you can also use footboard and headboard. for seating in the bedroom you can put seating bench or chaise at the foot of the bed. you can also put loveseat or ottoman chair set. you can use dresser or vanity set. arrange chest for storage solution. hang wall art on the wall. see bedroom design idea http://www.theclassyhome.com/comersus_listItems.asp?idCategory=229&Furniture=Master+Bedrooms

Skypotato, thanks for the acknowledgement - your place sounds wonderful. It is possible to take a 1940s places (what great bones!) and update / enlarge it without losing that essential character. that's a reno that may cost more (a question of the skills of your trades and oversight by yourself or your rep) and most importantly, attention to the right design aesthetic. If you go ahead, I hope you'll post photos. Good luck!

Another thing you should do is to put down some area rugs to provide traction for elderly infirm dogs who will have trouble on that tile. Get ones that have a rubber backing, and can be washed off with a hose in case of accidents.

I think the general term of "wicker" is used to describe almost any piece of woven grass/wood type furniture. There are some really fabulous pieces done in a variety of colors and textures. I'm thinking of some done by Padma's Plantation which work well in traditional or modern interiors/exteriors.

Those who have allergies to mold and dust mites should stay away. My allergist said to not have it because it's just too hard to get all the dust out (indoors) and will form mold where you can least get to it or see it. Banned natural baskets, too (but some I've sprayed coats of polyurethane on them and am hoping it works. Shame, because some newer styles I like (agree with not caring for "matchy matchy) and I love that I can easily pick up and sweep/vacuum under it. But I'm using easy to dust and clean lined furniture ... a bonus since I'm getting older and cleaning is not my favorite hobby.

HI -- That can't possibly be 42 inches high for a vanity -- can't be , that's bar height. Assuming you even need a pony wall between vanity and toilet it could be the same height of vanity or it could be 36 or 42 inches high. I hate pony walls beside toilets - they just cut the room in half and makes sitting there too confining . From a style and woman's point of view , reconsider the pony wall .

My parents installed a pony wall beside toilet years and years ago. They installed a electrical wire that ran inside the wall and on top hard wired a lamp that sat on top of the pony wall. Although it looked good, it didn't have shelves as in mjjk's suggestion above. I think that his suggestion is a good one

@Curt D'Onofrio.....Something I learned watching Robin's movies. " Awakenings" w/Robert DeNiro and "Patch Adams" (both doctor roles for Robin dealing w/institutionalized (Awakenings) and hospitalized (Patch Adams) patients......are the stories of REAL doctors and their "missions". Patch Adams is really called "Patch" Adams, is a doctor who later started a hospital that still exists today I believe. The doctor portrayed in Awakenings is trying to help people w/debilatating (catatonic) mental issues a more "normal" life.......
These were both very emotional films for me. Watching them after losing Robin - I feel like these roles were ways for Robin to share his own inner struggles and sensitivity in some way - I wish he was still with us - not as much for us as we will always have him, but for him. I miss him and wish he knew how much he gave all of us.
