    I'm looking to upgrade the look of my bathroom vanity. Instead of replacing it completely I thought I'd just swap the panels. So instead of the plastic-like white, I'd like it to be a nice walnut wood. Basically simple flat panels, like the existing ones. Question is, how? (I'm not experienced...

    Hey all, any recommendations for fixing this chip in a travertine tile that I have? I figure I can fill it with something that will make it hardly noticeable. I know its a porus rock, and it already has holes filled with a tannish colored something.

    Hi gang - I have a Troy-Bilt pressure washer that I bought in 2003. I use it once a year or so for deck and siding; I would be amazed if it even has 150 hours on it. Recently, it was running rough and dying out after the engine ran for about 10-15 minutes. I took it into a local shop with a...

I was...
