    NAH THE CONTRACTOR DID. THEY SELL KITS AT HOME DEPOT BUT I WOULDNT RECOMMEND THOSE. YOU NEED A DIAMOND TIPPED GRINDER TO REALLY CLEAN UP THE CONCRETE WELL ENOUGH FOR THE EPOXY TO ADHERE PROPERLY. I DONT HAVE THE TOOLS OR THE TIME TO DO IT.

    Still brainstorming.

    Got a reclining sofa and love seat combo for the great room. Just like the theaters, but better since the headrest is adjustable lol.

    and to @monstar we kinda have a vision and inspiration from other sources but have been buying on the fly as well. If something doesn’t feel right or work somehow it just goes back. Kinda tough starting from complete scratch and trying to fill the place.

    You can find some great home decorating stuff at marshalls and tj max for the low.

    My older sis does a lot of diy projects by looking at designer brands and just recreating it herself.

    You gotta have a creative muscle though to pull it off imo.

    They already got Chip and Joanna Gaines' name brand stuff at Marshall's and their line just dropped. I wonder what is best for cleaning stained concrete. I just swiffer it or use regular cleaner but I want it to shine more.

    What do yall use for a shoe rack? I had a plasticy one I got from Groupon it was like 10 tiers and lasted me I guess a year or so, I go to the closet to get dressed one day and that **** just disintegrated, well a few of the poles bent and dumped the whole thing over. In hindsight, I should have been using it stacked from the bottom up but whatevs. Every time I see one I wonder if it can handle sz 13s.
     
  23. Buying a house, should get it in a couple weeks.

    What are some must automation projects?

    Ring doorbell worth it? Don’t see much difference between the $99-$249 models.

    Anybody use security systems that aren’t the big name home security companies?

    Thoughts on Dallas for anyone who may have moved from Los Angeles?

    How was the adjustment. Did you regret the move...issues?
     
  25. DALLAS IS VERY NICE. I LOVED MY TIME LIVING THERE. COST OF LIVING IS GOOD TOO. SUMMERS ARE HELL ON EARTH THOUGH.
