  1. Concrete, Stone & Masonry
    I have a one piece light cream marble vanity top with backsplash in my bathroom that was installed in 1990 when the original owner added a bath. I would really like to keep it, but it's been stained with what I think is permanent hair dye (the color matches the hair I pulled from the p-trap)...
  2. Interior Decorating
    Hello, I'm new and tackling my first DIY project. My bedroom set is from the Bernhardt Monterey collection. While the pieces do not match they strongly coordinate- same wood tone, same brushed nickel color hardware, and curves & circles are repetitive elements. Based on limited space in my...

  4. Tiling, ceramics, marble
    Hi, I know the title is probably confusing. What I need to do is install 3x6 marble subway tiles as a backsplash. I'd like to install all tiles that don't need to be cut first, then get my measurements for the ones that need to be cut and install them at a later date. The reason for this is I do...

    Hey everyone, I'm about to start on a tile backsplash project with very small marble tile, so I have a few questions. I recently completed a tile floor in my bathroom with 1in hex tile on sheets, but I'm a little nervous about this backsplash. The cabinets and the counters are all level, but...

    I recently renovated by bathroom and included a marble cubby hole (18" high, 12" wide, 6" deep). I would like to spilt the space by putting in a glass divider to act as a shelf. What is the best way to mount the glass shelf into the marble? I would like to avoid any type of drilling. Thanks...
  8. Concrete, Stone & Masonry
    Hello all, I am new to this forum, so I hope I could hear from either a veteran or someone who has experience with this. I recently installed a carrara marble back splash. The tiles are 2" x 4" and they were glued to the meshing with a 3/8" space. My issue is, that I have read that unsanded...

    Just recently I had marble floor tile installed in my kitchen. I purchased HG Impregnating Floor Sealer and attempted to apply it as directed. It turned out okay for the most part however some spots near the grout lines left a visible line on the tile where the squeegee overlapped. How can I...

    I have a 21x32x1 inch kitchen sink cut-out from our marble countertop that will make a nice table for our porch. We have a left-over base that we want to attach it to and it looks to be a painted cast iron material. The thickness of the marble makes it a tad high but if necessary I could...

    Someone offered to give me the block of marble they are getting rid of from a front step, but it's too big to manage alone! Even with 3 or 4 people, it's next to impossible. It's measurements are 44" x 24" x 7", and it weighs in around 720 pounds. And Ideas on how to possibly breaking/cutting to...

    Hi, I am trying to figure out the best and neatest way to cut large circles in 30mm marble. Is there some sort of expandable hole cutter like for wood?
