    I bought an old diner a few years back, and renovated it into a house. In my living room, and throughout most of the house, the walls are plaster. Instead of removing all of the plaster and starting from scratch, I decided instead to frame over the plaster and hung drywall. In the corner of my...

    This is my first time post on a diy forum. I'm going to tile my kitchen counters and I have concerns about the edges and corners.

    I now own a belt sander, orbital sander, and a palm sander, each of which now have 40 grit sand paper which barely cut through the layer of varnish on my foyer's wood floor. I was able to get through most of the varnish, but I sat with the palm sander in the corners for 30 minutes and did not...

    I'm looking for some ideas on how to drywall above the stairs going down to my basement. There is a 90deg turn to the right that happens over a few stairs. I'm thinking that I may have to put a strip of wood on the bottom of each stair so it would be flush with the backside board on the...

    I recently had a new vanity installed in my bathroom. However, the vanity drawers are very tight against the wall (about 1/4" clearance). When the drawer is opened, it hits the door trim so that it can not open all the way. As a temporary solution, I've removed the door trim from that side...

    I have a couple corners where the tape seems to have lifted slightly away from the wall. You can see a crack going up much of the corner, which apparently is the tape cracking the paint and pulling away from the wall. Can I just sand and mud over this, or do I need to rip the tape off the whole...
