We were redoing a fireplace mantel which was a natural piece of wood, bark and all. We ordered the wrong size and couldn't return it so we ended up turning it into a front porch bench. We live in Portland so like to call it Northwest Modern! Only $240! Photo here: http://nicnormanstudio.com/images/bench.jpg

We built a horizontal fence and we're on a budget and like many couldn't find anything that was modern and unique. I walked every isle of our home improvement store looking for something that we could use as a handle and low and behold found it in the bathroom section. We used a handicap bathroom rail (or is often used as a railing in a shower entry) and it cost $20! We purchased 2 large stainless steel hinges for $36 each and had really cool gate hardware for under $100. Results here: http://nicnormanstudio.com/images/gate.jpg

Can I Paint Linoleum Flooring?

I'm so very passionate about this topic. We've been in a rental house for a few years and really couldn't stand the bathroom linoleum floor. I guess technically it's vinyl. In any case I tested several types of paint on a spot and it didn't stick. I did one more internet search before giving up and found this stuff called Linoleum Lacquer. It must be new I've been looking for years for a special product and haven't seen it. It was genius! They have tons of colors. It's help up perfectly and it's been 9 months and that bathroom is our only one (between 3 people) so it gets a lot of use. Our only concern is the landlords reaction when we move out. It's still worth it though.
