I've been trying to figure out how to remove the rust on my fixer up bike. I'm going to try the lemon/lime juice, cream of tar tar, & vinegar & aluminum foil. There's another good description of the process on the Riding Pretty blog

i can't wait to try it! I too am molasses crazy but constantly disappointed by what passes as gingerbread cake. and I agree, it has to have the cream cheese frosting!

I love the restaurant "Little Doms" -- it's one of my favorites. I like that this smallish kitchen looks real, not decorator overdone. The tile, butcher block and old stove give it great character.

this is a cool open space, love the ceiling, the windows, and the how the orangeyness and kilim rugs meld w/ all the woods. Not over decorated, not too cabiney, just great style.

I went the Vitamix route instead of the juicer. Victoria Boutenko's book "Green for Life" was a big influencer for me. I wanted to get more leafy greens and fruit into my family and blending them together into a delicious smoothie seemed like a great idea. I also prefer to keep the fiber.

Why not take them off and use American Clay clay plaster to smooth out the ceiling (if it needs it)? I much prefer plaster to drywall (and toxic dry wall mud).

i agree w/ tung oil, but make sure it's real tung oil! I get the one from the "realmilkpaint" website. This brand was also recommended by Martha Stewart and she showed it as a project in her magazine a few months ago.

it's a beauty. I'd love to know what all of those compartments do. Obviously the biggest one is the oven, but what about the others? Love those knobs!

I'm in favor of painting the ceiling. Check out the Emery et Cie website for visual examples.

My neighbor is installing the open concrete grids in her driveway & backyard bbq area. They had major problems w/ drainage in the past so this was a good (and prettier) solution for her.

I want to paint my kitchen cabinets so I'd like to hear more about how this paint dries & holds up.
Are you putting any wax or anything on top of the paint?
