Have you ever tried to remove a baseboard only to end up with tears or dents in the sheetrock? Even when attempting to be very gentle, I would always end up with at least one defect. Finally, I found a method that works! If you suffer from this same problem, I want to share with you how to remove baseboards without damage to your sheetrock.
Knowing how to frame walls with doorways is a skill that can open up a wealth of options for the DIYer. In a world where open concept rules and walls are shunned, focus on how to construct a proper wall isn’t at the top of the list for most home improvement gurus. Yet, this knowledge can be used to create new storage spaces, to define areas, or to change a floor plan’s layout.
A few weeks ago, I posted an article on which paint colors would increase your home’s sale price (at least for 2017). However, several of you were very interested in knowing which colors should be avoided – i.e the worst paint choices. Well, I prefer to only write positive articles. So, it took a little bit of considering, but I did finally decide to go forward with writing this up. Just keep in mind, as you read this, that this is purely a statistical analysis. It is, by no means, intended to suggest that these colors are ugly.
Color is very subjective, and in the right design, any color can be beautiful. However, we must start somewhere. Therefore, I would say that you should avoid these paint colors when selling your home.
I thought that all my readers might like a chance to see some of the nice, free wall art printables that are available in the Printables’ Gallery. Normally, access to these printables are reserved for my email subscribers, but I have decided to open the Printables Gallery for a limited time to the entire public. Sort of a sneak peek. 🙂

That is, every time I see a blank wall, I ask myself, “what can I do inside that wall?” I guess because I am a space hog, I hate to ignore those 4-6 inches of space that are just sitting there being wasted. (an obsession that I am sure my dh really wishes that I didn’t have) 😉 But today, i invite you to join me with imagining how that space can be used add that something extra to your home with these 8 niche ideas.
