    I’ve run into a bit of a problem while planning a paint job, need some advice. I’m moving into a new home in a few weeks and plan on repainting pretty much everything. The home is only 18 years old and is in great shape. The last owner had a terrible taste in color though. I’ve been practicing...

    We have a Brazilian mahogany door slab on the way to replace the previous owner's bright purple exterior door. As you can see, they included the frame when painting with this bright purple. In order to better match the new mahogany door, we decided to strip the paint on the frame to see if there...

    I have a door with window panes in it. The previous owner painted over the varnish very badly. I have stripped the wood using paint remover and then sanded it and used low VOC mineral spirits on it. Do I need to do anything else before painting it. I’m worried the mineral spirits will leave a...

    My dads friend 40 years ago in high school did a large painting on very heavy particle board. I would love to know how to seal it all from scratches and damage ? Without damaging the painting done on it. Also it’s very heavy. How would I hang it? Thanks y’all

    I recently had exterior concrete steps repaired that go from a 2nd floor apartment to the ground. They were previously painted by something that was think and rubbery. The concrete company recommended epoxy with sand mixed in on the treads. He also didn’t recommend cement paint saying it would...

    Hello everyone, I have a weird paint problem. My husband's sweat has the odd and somewhat unfortunate quality of dissolving paint. We joke that it's his super power. It's not instant, but over time, paint that he touches often will soften up. In our current house the problem areas are painted...

    I've got this retaining wall that runs the length of my front yard and when it was initially installed back in dark ages, they didn't ever waterproof the rear side of the wall (the side that abuts the yard), so as you can imagine, moisture is coming through and puckering the paint and the wall...

    Looking to either paint or lay some LVP (or similar) to encapsulate my basement and garage floor and make it easier to vacuum/mop. The basement is in pretty good shape, the garage not so much. I’m not looking to make this a huge project nor am I looking to win any beauty contests. I simply want...

    Before we moved in we had the carpet on the second floor ripped up and the floors refinished. As the flooring guys were working they told me that the floor in a room directly connected to my 1-year-old son's nursery had been painted blue. They refinished it and I thought nothing of it. Flash...

    Hi all, We have a baby on the way in September and our parents gave us this older pine bedroom set. There are scuffs throughout and some weird red stains on top of some of the pieces.

    I'm having my garage re-sided and I'm planning on using Hardie. But I need it to match the main house, and the built-in color offerings are blah. We prefer a much brighter yellow than the manila folder looking color. So: 1. Previously on Cedar I used oil primer + latex outer (always Ben...

    Hello Masters, I wanna paint/wallpaper on my room drywall. Previous owner detach cork and/or patches, and leave without cleaning up all. I scrapped most of 1st layer paper of drywall due to glues and cork particles. I am unsure what I should do next for wall, unscripted corners and uneven...

    Hello everyone! We just finished renovating our house and patching a bunch of sections of plaster walls with new drywall. I was wondering what the best kind of primer would be to use on both surfaces. It looks like PVA is only for new drywall? I ws thiinking maybe something like Bulls Eye 123...

    I've posted before. 1940s Home. I had a second floor bathroom paint peeling issue due to a condensation issue. It would bubble then crack. Plaster underneath was cracked. This is on first floor outside the powder room. I drew up a floor plan, there is no obvious plumbing above it (no bathroom...
