Most hardware stores, back in the paint section, have what they call an "oops" area. An oops area is where all the custom coloring is done.......sometimes twice. The quart, gallon, and five gallon containers from the employees first attempts at the customers colors are usually reduced price steals. Where else are you going to find five gallons of black 30 year exterior latex enamel for $15.00? Concrete paints, porch and deck polymers, and the always abundant latex varieties are all victims to colorant errors. This is something I do faithfully every time I enter my Home Depot or Orchard Supply Hardware stores. Always seems to be a gallon black or a shade of gray in there all year long. Beware of the paint Nazi who thinks she can tell you how to paint and with what. PVA primer CAN be pigmented.
While there are many compost drums on the market and many plans for home built ones; this one is a little different. I designed this compost system to easily transfer the finished compost into a garden cart. This system has few parts and all are easily obtained if you don't already have them on-hand. The system includes a barrel and the platform on which it rides. Here is a materials list.
For the beer lover, the obvious choice is a kegerator. If you cannot afford a kegerator, then the next best thing is a set of Pilsner glasses and the largest pack of his favorite beer you are willing to splurge on. It will be a hit and you will be rewarded with many thanks. Likewise for the wine lover, a simple but nice wine rack filled with wine will be wildly appreciated. Many stores offer a 10% discount if you purchase 6 bottles or more, so purchase a wide selection for him to enjoy.
I will assume the breakfast nook is on our left. 1st. 1 inch bull nose tile then next 12 3/8 inches is 4 tiles you can multiply how many to cover behind the stove and the remainder of the wall. Cut pieces in the corner For simplicity your cuts should leave a tile 1 inch or larger. Note: Other tile sizes will work 6x6 are not really 6 inches that's why we measure. But each change here makes a difference in the final look. 4x by 4's can make a long wall look busy with grout seams. Choose wisely. Most people use graph paper to lay out where all the tile go. This is especially important if you plan a decorative tile over the stove in that larger space before the hood.
They best part about this next phase is you get to sit down and paint the stones. The cardboard isn't all that uncomfortable, so the whole family can pitch in and help. I use one of those small foam bushes with soft little angled bristles. It is set on a curved handle with comfort in mind because painting this way with a standard brush would require you to post your wrists while painting to stay within the lines. By posting I mean setting your wrist down on a surface much like when you write with a pencil. but this is like moving a matchbox car with a tight turn radius around the rock patterns we scribed earlier. Another plus of this curved handle is it allows you to dip the brush directly into the paint can to wet the foam pad. This eliminates the pouring of paint into other smaller containers which wastes paint.
