21  Large Resin project - any one work with resin? in Discussion and Questions by scrills on: March 23, 2005 10:04:36 AM
Tile made from river stones cast in resin

I bought a house a couple of months ago that needs a lot of updating. ( www.fotki.com/scrills/my_house). Ok, so I finally found a countertop that I fell in love with for my bathroom. I had to give up other luxuries to make this decision since it is $55 square foot.  My vanity is only 18x30, so I figured that I would go for it.

Well I just got a call from the retailer, and the company the get it  from can only sell an entire slab. With shipping, etc., it will be $3600. Ok a couple hundred i can deal with, but $3600?

So, I got to thinking, can I make this stuff on my own? It is riverstone/pebbles cast in a clear resin. I provided a link to give you a better idea.

22  Mondrian/ Wright inspired bedroom wall in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by scrills on: February 02, 2005 09:03:42 AM
I recently bought a house and I am working on getting it together one room at a time. Well I almost have one room complete so I thought I would share.

www.fotki.com/scrills/my_house

These pics of my bedroom. I decided to go with shades of chocolate/brown.

First, I painted the entire wall white.

With the help of a friend, I taped off the wall using painter tape and a level. I didn't really worked off a diagram. I made one in powerpoint and only followed it for about 4 blocks.

Then we applied two coats of paint.

Remove the tape and this is that you have.

I also refinished the wood floors. It had shag carpet that I ripped up. Sanding floors is hard work!!!!!
