Awesome job.  I understand the work that goes into painting bike parts.  Also, for future reference, most bike shops will let you use their really good awesome tools for free, so stop buying crappy Wal-Mart tools to use on your awesome bike!

Try running vinegar and water through the steam cycle.

I second this.  Really, you can clean them like you clean the electric coffee maker. If you want to get fancy, some sewing type stores will carry a product especially for your iron.  And don't forget to always pour out unused water from the reservoir when you are done with your iron.
143  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Bernina 1008 issues on: October 07, 2009 06:43:19 PM
So I've had my Bernina for about 10 years, no problems.  It's been a little neglected recently, and projects have been piling up, so I took it out, cleaned and oiled it, and started in on some things.  All for naught. For some reason now, the top thread seems to be arbitrarily deciding to change it's tension.  One minute it's too tight, which yanks on the thread spool, and the next it's so loose it's getting tangled around the arm (the part that goes up and down on the front), or getting looped under the bobbin thread and tangling/breaking on the underneath of whatever I'm sewing.  I've followed the manual's suggestions of getting the correct size needles, making sure I'm using new, quality thead, and I know the machine is clean.  Any suggestions?  It really seems like the tension control isn't doing it's job; on some test runs, changing the tension settings didn't seem to have any effect.

Wow, that's a really great renovation.  The little "seats" in your sinks kind of confuse me though.  As for your cabinets, maybe a dark teal to go with your accents, or a dark, espresso stain of some sort? The white would be overpowering with the rest of the white fixtures.  In our bathroom, we are painting the exposed wood a plain old black and "antiquing" it, which is a good way to break up just a solid, dark color.

Your pictures aren't working.

Bona makes a non-toxic variety of refinisher/top coat, so that might be worth looking in to.  I know they sell it at Ace Hardware, and possibly also Lowe's (not sure what's available in your area).  I've never sniffed it, so really not sure if it might still have some smell to it.   We also got a cheap hand rotary sander at Harbor Freight for something like $30, which we have been using to sand down the subfloor while putting in our hardwoods (alas, nothing was under our carpet except OSB!  Cry ).  That might work pretty well, assuming they sell a really fine, fine grit sandpaper.  I would also watch Craigslist in your area, you might be able to pick up one pretty cheap if you don't have a Harbor Freight.

Wow! Does that oven still work?  It looks excellently retro. 

I love the paint job too!  It's amazing how much it opens what looked like a small, dark place.

That looks awesome and matches the rest of the room really nicely.  Good job!

Wow, that is extra awesome.  Maybe paint the cabinets white or a nice pastel color to match the rest of the room?
