man how about laminate flooring?
you can achive a lot of different looks with laminate. It's durable and really easy to install.
I have no experience in carpentry and I just moved into my own house
laminate is going to be cheaper than tile, and you can probably get it the exact same look.
Ignore that cat, but this is a bamboo laminate.
You say ignore that cat as if it's not wearing a tie...
haha it was Sunday, he was getting ready for church.
@whitelash1488#3099 if you're looking to change the look of a room relatively inexpensively, you can add chair rails, picture rails, crown molding, or wainscoting to the walls. Adding 5 1/4in baseboard, if you don't already have it, can make a big difference to a room. And I can teach you scarf joints and mitered coping joints!
Here's a house I added crown, a chair rail and we added I think the baseboard was something like 8inches.
Oh this is vinyl, it looks great too. There are a ton of options for flooring.
You could literally have the hardwood floor look in every room, using laminate, vinyl and tile.
The only place I like carpet is in the bedrooms.
@RevStench#3208 Wow thanks! I'll have to save up and get ahold of you! I love IE everyone's so helpful and kind
I'm 23 and a newer home owner so I'm excited to make the place look nice
This is tile in a bathroom.

Finished this one, pretty basic but might be a good lesson to start with
Nice bro, looks good. Here's a great little chart to help with how high thing's should be.
That's pretty wild where did you get that chart at? Is that something that you got at work
@Deleted User I honestly can't remember. It was on my phone from Dec 2015. Not from work, but it's a good one.
Painting today. Anyone interested in learning how to paint like a boss? No tape cut in?
I'm actually talented at cutting for some strange reason
Yeah go for it, should be interesting to see
First thing, you pull paint no smear. It's like using a file, one direction.
You dip your paint brush in the paint. Wipe one side off using the lip of the can.
You paint with one side of the brush, pulling the paint.
To hold, grip the brush really low on the brush, using your fingers to make the bristles stiff.
Take your time and pull the paint. Steady hands
It all comes down to how you hold it. I use the 3 fingers on the bristles to stiffen them for better control.
Here's my shop
I love shop pics haha
Anyone good with plumbing
