Really cute actually

Most windows I have seen are removed from the outside.....
There's a tin flange on the face of the window frame and it's attached to the outside with nails. If you can't get to the outside then use a sawzall & rip it out a piece at a time.
I don't see any screws holding it in. I thought the wood frame was holding it in, but you can see where i ripped part of it out on the right and it's actually on the outside of the window.
You can do it from the inside. Remove the sashes and take a sawsall and cut the top and bottom of the frame in the middle. Should be able to take a pry bar and get in between it at that point. Even if it has a nailing phalange it should come out pretty easily.
It comes out from the outside of house. Take trim off and maybe some siding will have to come off. This is why you research and ask people how to do things before you do them. You tore apart the inside of your house for no reason.
Try waiting to the weather breaks ..
Crowbar n hammer bro, make sure you get the slim wedge crowbar. Start with the corners working it slowly. If you don't give a damn about saving it, smash that shit with painters plastic on the ground so it makes cleanup easier
Looks to me like it is the photographic veneer not wood veneer. Might try a damp cloth and an iron.
I mean, maybe? If you want to apply lite heat and attempt to smooth out the bubbles with a plastic/rubber scrapper. But, then your adhesive may be used up or not sticking by the end of the process.
Plus, if that's your dishwasher there to the right. I'd imagine it's the steam or heat from there that's warping it which will happen to any adhesive stick product.
Looks like shitty contact paper, not veneer
That's contact paper, isn't it?
It wasn’t the best results but I’ve poked a hole with a needle and put super glue in before and it looked mostly normal. The key was being able to apply pressure across the whole surface for it to turn out well. I used a clamp on scrap 1x4 to apply pressure. Some turned out better than others.
I’d try using a credit card to smooth it out. Then try the slit method.
Dig some change out of the couch cushions, go to wal-mart, and buy another roll of veneer. Peel off the original, clean the surface with acetone, and apply the new stuff. May be worth asking if they offer bookmatched or sequence matched veneers for a nice upgrade.
Try taking a small blade and cutting a slit to release the air and then smooth it out with a credit card. You may replace the bubble with a small but flat wrinkle.
Just replace. Those are available at any home center or online. Just need to know if it's an on/off or a high/med/low chain switch.
The replacement is like $5.
If the chain broke that far in, it might be less hassle just to replace the little switch part. You should be able to find it at one of the big box home improvement stores.
I replaced mine not long ago. Get wire nuts that will fit the wires. Get the proper switch. There are three and two wire ones at the Home Depot/Lowes.
you can do this, not bad
New ceiling fan $80.00, 45 minute replacement time.
I’ve done this without buying any parts. It is actually very easy. This video helped me: https://youtu.be/eyTXroga8Lo

The wall with the door, fill it to the floor, sand it down and paint it the colour of the wall, ensure the door doesn't rub up against it. Make sure the finish to the skirting is at a 45 degree angle away from the wall this will help it look finished. It will also catch light and not look "run out" causing a darker edge than the rest of the board. Paint the 45 degree angled cut out to match the rest of the board. Job done.
There is mm of space. I think the plasterer should have plastered all the way to the bottom. Any other options apart from getting a plaster back in?
Does it need to be that close? Could you change the hardware on the door, bring it out a bit and get some material on the wall?
If the door is solid core, you could modify the bottom of the door to allow trim behind it, such as a low profile base or even just a strip of wood.
Either way, bare plaster is an eye sore.
Could do a metal, plastic, or mdf strip cut to size
This post really doesn't belong here. Would fit better in /r/whatisthisthing...but here...
That should help you in your search.
Oval filagree frame
The style is called 'Rococo'.
30 bucks on Amazon, if you search for baroque oval frame, you should find more
Secondhand/OP-shop.Looks like a mirror used to live there.
Hopefully gonna craft something up similar to this. But I can't find anything on eBay that's within budget 😒
Goodwill, salvation army. Find something you like then spray paint it the color you want.
Look up "Ornate oval frame" and you'll see quite a few options.
Is that Great Tiger's skull?
I would Google for "wood hunting trophy plate".
EDIT: plaque or pad.
Ikea has a mirror frame like this. Take the mirror out. bam!
That looks like a 3-way switch. What is the new switch?
Dont do it if you dont know how.
It looks like its connected to another switch elsewhere, thats why it has an extra wire
Fairly standard replacing single poles. Read the answer section. Has a graphic as well
Put the red and white wires on the new plugs red ones. Black on black and if you look in the back of the box the plug goes in you will see green screws. And a wire in it. Use that wire for the green one or also called the ground wire.
It's a traveler wire it goes to another switch on the same circuit ie to switches control same light outlet
It's a 3way switch. Should be a diagram in the package for this application. Follow those directions, From the photo, it looks like red and white are the travelers and black is the common. Green should go to the bare or green in the box. It isn't connected to this switch, it should have been.
Turn that switch on the side where the white and black is. I will say it's wired with the wrong colors right away. Looks like white and black is connected through the tab
Black to black Red to redRed to white Green to green screw or bare wire in back of box
blown cellulose insulation
Just don’t eat it regardless
100% not asbestos. In homes, asbestos was used to insulate pipes and used in floor tiles. Rarely would you find it in the walls. I am a carpenter also use to do asbestos removal, this is not at all asbestos. Just blown insulation.
It could be the lighting but it looks a little blue to be asbestos.
I dont think so. Just an older style of insulation I believe.
*wear a mask regardless haha
Probably not asbestos containing, it doesn't look like vermiculite to me.
Looks like mineral wool, rock wool. Hard to tell by the pic, but that's what it looks like to me. Do a Google image search of "old blown mineral wool insulation"
Tip and something to think of. But if it's blown in the ceiling, chances are it's in the walls. Shiplapped walls with pockets cut out at the top of each 16" spacing were then blown with that insulation. If you have heat loss issues or high cost of heating, that may be your culprit as mineral insulation tends to settle and shrink after time.
Good luck :)
How old is the house? It doesn’t immediately look like asbestos, but the lighting is not great.
Asbestos is usually applied to steel or concrete structural members to crate a one hour burn barrier to a fire. This appears to be loose fiber glass insulation applied by blown application. So I’d guess not.
Asbestos has a particular smell... Best way to identify it is to insufflate a small amount, similar to doing a line of cocaine...
Does it taste like asbestos?
...why not just print the rack?
This was my first real router project. I printed the actual guide from cheap Priline PETG in two sections to fit on my small printer, and screwed them to the board shown. It took about 6 repositions to cut each rack section (74" long racks with 39 slots each). If I had it to do again I would make a master guide from plywood from the printed sections that was much longer. I would also figure out a way to quickly remove some of the material before bringing in the router. Overall I'm pretty happy with the final project, though.
