Jpp221, if you don't like the look then don't do it, but shaming others that like it is just pointless. You don't like it? That's okay, but I can like it and that's okay too. No need to go on and tell me my taste is like a gas station display, that just shows classlessness, not good taste.

Onle Powell, I pour boiling water directly down into the drain, not into the sink, and I haven't experienced the problem you noted with melting the seal. I've been doing it for more than 50 years. I use a tea kettle to heat the water rather than a pan, so it's easy to aim the boiling water directly into the drain.

It's a nice looking deck, but any article that does not cover how to build the correct foundation or footing for a deck (frost line) is pretty useless in the end. Would be a pity if someone in the Northern climates followed your instructions here, expend a lot of effort, and then have all their hard work ruined by shifting foundations and an un-level and unsafe deck.

As a picture framer of 20+ yrs I would agree with Brandenburg Studios. When it comes to keeping pictures from moving on the wall I use a product called "Pic Sure Stay" made by Moore Push-Pin Co. This product however only works on drywall not plaster walls. I've also found that felt bumpers work better then the clear self adhsive bumpers. When ever in doubt of hanging a wall hanging consult with your local picture framer.

I agree with blossita. You can take these ideas into your first (and only) home.
I've just finished painting our stairs. I don't have a clear photo of the before but there was a thick wool carpet on them which was very uncomfortable as it made the steps a different height and depth.
I went on the internet to look for an appropriate design, printed it and made a stencil. I used chalk paint.

I loved this! And I agree with the others that these ideas translate beautifully for one's primary home.
But a word about painted floors: I had redone a kitchen, all 1930's-y farm-house. Money was getting tight, so I thought having the floor painted was a brilliant idea -- historically consistent with the region and the time period. Had it painted bluish gray, again, perfect. Can I tell you I have never EVER had a floor that was so high maintenance? It showed every speck of dust, every drop of kitchen spillage, everything. It needed to be mopped every day ( that is not to say it was mopped every day).
I ran into the painter a few months later and was telling him about the problems with the paint, and asked him why he didn't tell me how high-maintenance it was going to be. He just shrugged and said, "you seemed to know what you wanted." Valuable lesson learned here. Contrary to the Rolling Stones, you can often get what you want, but sometimes don't know what you need.

To avoid the sticker shock of Carrara marble we recommend shopping with The Builder Depot. For Carrara 4x12" tiles like this are more affordable at just $8.00SF and no sales tax for customers outside the state of GA. We stock every subway size imaginable from 3x6" through to 12x24" really Savvy shopping means going online to our site and save in todays market. We have changed the way shopping for premium Carrara marble mosaics, tiles and trims is done. We hope forever and for the betterment of the homeowner. Upsetting the applecart of the traditional supply chain of this sought after stone is an understatement where we are concerned. Our no frills marketing strategy and high quality, low cost business plan has taken us to the largest domestic supplier in under a decade.

We loved this article and being one of the largest suppliers (if not the largest) supplier of Carrara Marble in North America we especially love the shower :) The size used looks very much like a 4x12". We had been pushing to get into this size since 2012. But has taken, due to the painstakingly slow process of selection, to quarry to production to adequate supply taken us the better part of 18 months to get up to speed.

But you can see in the attached images we have provided and used on the shower wall in this post how the slightly longer Subway tiles (compared to that over the traditional 3x6") give the shower a different modern look. The reason for our slow entry is a lot to do with how we are able to sell the product for a mere $8.00SF: (available in Honed and Polished) http://www.thebuilderdepot.com/cvh-4x12-sub.html. We have to wait until there are sufficient, perfect and matching blocks to do a "huge run" of the one size, this creates economies of scale and without going into a complete economics lesson, lower prices. You can watch some of the hows on a short video: http://thebuilderdepot.wordpress.com/2013/09/29/natalie-and-the-builder-depot/ or in more detail in our FAQ's on the the same blog (3rd question down).

We always recommend (if you wish to stay vertical) using one of the matching mosaics from the Carrara Venato collection. Polished or honed it does not matter as it is actually the grout that provides the traction and stops you looking silly by slipping over.

The technical term is friction co-effieicent; but the reality is the grout provides huge traction so much that it negates the differences between honed and polished stone (which is always a shock to everyone).

Attached is our Basketweave and Hexagon, both ideal for a shower floors. Our Carrara Venato is just $11.75 a square foot (available here: http://www.thebuilderdepot.com/venatohexhon2.html) which was probably less expensive than the ceramic put down in the post and would have almost certainly added more value to the property. The Basketweave pictured is even less and at just $10.95 square foot and free shipping. This would have been a wonderful addition, but perhaps not in the same keeping with the design: http://www.thebuilderdepot.com/carrara-basketweave-mosaic.html

I am sure a matching Carrara mosaic floor was considered but given the high cost in the local boutique tile and stone retailers of $40 to $50.00 a square foot this pushed the "reinvented budget conscious farmhouse bath" beyond what would be considered savvy. But do not blame the retailers they have to charge these prices, it is completely understandable. They are set up with old supply chains from the 80s and 90s, when multiple people in the chain from Italian quarry to their store added 100% markup at each step. They are also dealing with high costs of a retail showroom which alone can add $10.00 a square foot to the cost of products, they offer designers and coffee. Today on the other side of the coin is a corporation like ours with offices in Europe and purchasing direct from quarry and selling direct to the consumer or contractor it is amazing how much of a saving can be made.

My favorite contractor to work for has us on site during the rough-in of a house to discuss tile layouts, fixture depths, valve locations, framing, blocking, shampoo niches, co-plainer finishes, reveals and much more. When all the trades come together cohesively the results can be outstanding! In the master bath in the pictures the design required full layouts at the floor, ceiling, windows, Shampoo niche and recessed T.V. it also required the tile to co- plane with teak paneling, sheetrock and trim. Last but not least the soaking tub that the house was essentially built around required a 1/4'' shadow line. It would be impossible without careful coordination by all the trades involved. A little extra planning and communication up front can really guarantee success. We find that if a contractor hires us to late for this we spend much of our time compromising details to adjust to ill placed obstacles. This article brings up a great mindset for planning any project!

Mcpont- There are many things that can cause a tile to break like it has. Like John mentioned, over-tightening seems a likely culprit for the one tile. It looks like it is a glass tile of sorts and depending on the manufacture specs. it may require an anti fracture membrane as well as a highly modified thin set.

My hubby and his father took leftover wood from building our cabin and built this beautiful bed swing. The rope came from a local hardware store along with eye bolts and I found a fabulous huge piece of salvage upholstery foam for $5 at the Salvation Army. It had dried glue on one side, so the hubs took a sawzall, shaved the glue off and cut the foam in half (it was king size), we cleaned it really well, covered it with a weatherproof XL twin mattress cover, then a pillow top cover, then soft jersey sheets and assorted pillows, mostly from Dirt Cheap. No one in the family wants to sleep on their own bed anymore! Everyone wants to sleep on the swing bed, especially when it is raining. It is fabulous. We recently screened in part of our porch (we are in the south and have to worry about bugs). I attached my hubby's plans (hope he didn't plan on keeping those a secret!) and a picture of the almost finished product (lacked just a few little touches). Enjoy and good luck with making your own!

Appreciate your comments Peggy and goatpro. Keep in mind that if you already had a mattress (which many people do) the price would be cut by $200! And I did NOT actually build the swing, had a carpenter do the construction and hanging. Should you yourself do the entire project start to finish, indeed the price would be quite nominal. Just saw a comparable swing for sale at Ballard for $800, plus shipping, tax and you still have to assemble and hang yourself! And it doesn't have the charm mine does if I do say so myself :)

Gorgeous! Thank you for a great ideabook!

What is the rule of thumb for caring for upholstered pieces, wood furniture and electronics (like the flat screen tv, even when designed for outdoor use) featured in these outdoor/semi-outdoor rooms? I understand the upholstered pieces use outdoor fabrics, but so many of them still seem exposed to the elements that I wonder about protecting them from mold/mildew/dust. Do homeowners generally cover them? I'm thinking especially about picture #11 with what looks like white slipcovers (I have an identical sofa by Lee Industries with down cushions) and picture #16 with the blue furniture and arches. Some of these decks look like the owners can close doors/windows/screens, but others like those with the arches don't look like they have ways to entirely close them. How does this work? I would love to have suggestions as we have several open decks with our house (and a much smaller budget than these pictures depict!). :) We live in an area in the mountains with a lot of rain. While I love the curtain look, I'm not sure how to create room-like spaces since we have more than one deck without looking distracting/messy from the exterior. Would you stick to just using panel treatments on the two decks on the upper level, for example? Or should I skip the use of panels/ room concept all together and just leave open spaces?
