  • I have an empty room

    No more kitchen cabinets in my sewing room. They’re all in the kitchen!!! Last 2 doors going on this week!! Bruce needs to remake one of the upper cabinet doors it twisted a little. Backsplash and dare I say DONE. Now, what to do with an empty room. I’m sure I’ll find something. It’s been a lllloooooonnnnggggg journey getting to this point.

    How about making it a sewing room again. It is only logical.

      Congratulations! Doing your own kitchen is a huge undertaking, especially when you build your own cabinets. Have you decided on the back splash? Pictures when complete would be nice.


      Return it to a sewing room. I wish we had an extra craft/ sewing room. My Mom passed away in 2007, at the ti e she had 13 sewing machines along with all of the attachments etc. I am just now sorting through all of the boxes. I kept the Brother Inovis 4000D embroidery machine and her 1927 vintage industrial machine (just put that up for sale). I now know for sure where my need for gadgets came from.

        I'm envisioning a cherry panelled library.
        With a crystal chandelier and green leather high back reading chairs--while soft music plays in the background from cleverly hidden speakers.

        Too early to leave, too late to call in.

          I have the backsplash. After bringing home 15 different tiles, I settled on the first one!!! I almost changed my mind on the floor, but after looking at the boxes stacked in the living room I figured Bruce would get upset if I wanted to exchange it. Glad I didn’t because it is really pretty. I also told Bruce I wanted to add another work area in the sewing room for my quilling. I think he’s done with projects for a while. We still need to put baseboard back down in the dining and living room and get the carpet installed. Sure glad we painted when we did because I don’t think it would have been done. One thing I learned there’s is no time frame with an undertaking this size. Bruce kept saying that but of course I didn’t listen. Yes, there will be pictures.

            I always chuckle when friends tell me they hired a contractor to do a project and it would take this long at this cost. People that have never done anything by themselves have absolutely no idea what is involved. Especially the stuff that is hidden in the walls of an old house..
            I am really impressed with what you and especially Bruce have accomplished.

                Reply to wipe on poly and tack cloth
                by Don in Brooklin On
                I use wipe on poly quite often and I apply 2 thin coats before sanding with 220 or 320. I wipe with a lint free. Someone told me not to use tack cloth as you can leave behind a wee bit of beeswax witch could cause issues later on.

                I make sure that the surface is dry and not tacky before...

                wipe on poly and tack cloth
                by dwssr2
                Question, when sanding polyurethane in between coats, using a tack cloth, is it ok to wipe on poly while the project seems tacky or should a person wait a few hours to let it dry?
                How necessary is it to sand between coats of polyurethane? I am sure people have a lot of different opinions and...

                Don’t forget to carry insurance if you sell a lot. It’s a necessary expense and a good "silent" partner and hope it stays that way.
