81  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Best method to remove labels from bottles? on: September 28, 2003 09:00:19 AM
My wife spray-painted a chalkboard in the kitchen not too long ago.  We write up shopping lists, notes to each other, telephone messages, etc.

But, it has no border.  The idea of a picture frame got shot down pretty quickly when it was pointed out that the fridge (right next to the chalkboard, it's a small kitchen) wouldn't be able to slide out if we needed to work on the water line again.

So, I've been mulling it over for a long time.  We currently have a chili pepper theme in the kitchen, as we're both fans of the spicy hot stuff, and both like our Tabasco sauces.

I thought we could remove the logo labels from the hot sauces and apply the nifty little diamond-like squares to the corners, irregular sizes, and she suggested maybe salvaging the green neck-label to connect the corners.

But, does anyone know the best method of completely removing these labels?  We have two right now with which to experiment.  We have one in the freezer, as our first idea, but we're really not sure.

Any suggestions?

Many thanks!
Jake
82  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / Building a privacy fence on: September 23, 2003 10:32:42 AM
I'm new here, so I apologize if this is in the wrong forum.  I'm fishing for ideas.

My wife is in school full time, I work full time, and we own our home.  With a single income, I believe we qualify for the distinction of po'.

A friend of mine at work once told me a story about a neighbor of his parents.  This neighbor purchased a large number, as in several pallets, of surplussed military skis.  Using left over shelving brackets from a closed grocery store in the area, he removed the bootings from the skis, and erected an, by all accounts, attractive privacy fence.  The shelving was spray painted with rustoleum, or some such color to match the skis and protect them, and the fence has stood since.

This story has been stuck in my head for a while now.  Particularly now that we'd like to put up a fence.

Can anyone help me to figure out what I can use and how to use it to erect my own unique privacy fence?  I'm in a wonderful position to do so, since there aren't any homeowners' association militants about.  No HOA at all, actually.

Should I just scrap it and save up my money to buy the fence panels and do it the common way, or is there a way I can have a really great, and unique fence?

Thanks for your kind attention,
Jake
