RE: classic/period/retro white hex/subway advice? (Follow-Up #4)

nola

As promised over on kit forum -

Here's pics of master bath done last yr.

Rittenhouse subways and "no name" 1" hex w/a matte glaze - I searched everywhere for those! I think AMerican Olean does carry them - I found them at a local tile place for hmm I think 5$ sq ft

Mapei silver for grout

I would steer clear of any white grout - just a beast to keep clean over time

I had nearly enough room to fit a 5'6" tub but went for the niche instead - storage is an issue esp w/console sink

this was a chest of drawers I re-did & put glass knobs & carrara top on

Bill V was a HUGE help!

So much so - that he encouraged me to do my 1st tile job w/leftover tile

RE: Beadboard or other wainscoting? (Follow-Up #11)

I think you've gotten really great advice about the combo. I have the same picture of Katieob's trim saved as well, it is really pretty and I think would be beautiful with your light --- not too formal, just very pretty. I can think of 2 other people that have great "trim." The first is persnickety --- her judges paneling is great.

The second one is kpaquette. She has it on a wall extending from her kitchen and it is really beautiful, though it is higher than Katieob's paneling. Anyway, since you are in trim mode, and you also have Katie's trim saved (like me) I thought I'd pass along some of my other favorites. I hope it is OK to link pictures?

Can't wait to see it all finished --- eveything in your house looks so great already, this will be one more beautiful detail. Rachel

Hi judydel~

My vote is to mix it up. You already have the beadboard, so go with the shaker next!

We decided on the recessed/shaker wainscoting throughout the house to flow with the kitchen cabinets & interior doors. However, I love beadboard so we used it as the back of all built ins & in the back hall/mudroom/half bath. Don't know if your dining room is visible from your kitchen/stairway, but I think the two wainscotings blend fine.

Still LOVING that RH chandy...

And thanks for your warm words. Really validating.

Lori, do you know if they use or can use a catalyzed conversion varnish for a top clearcoat oven the paint or stain? I have been meaning to ask them but havn't gotten around to it. That's the only possible drawback I can see.

RE: cup pulls how long for drawers? (Follow-Up #3)

posted by: jsweenc on 03.20.2010 at 10:11 pm in Kitchens Forum

We've only had our hardware on for a week and aren't really using our drawers yet, but we had two put on the drawers over 30". DH pointed out that with the glides that are available now the alignment shouldn't be as much of an issue. Good point about the cost of one larger one vs. two smaller ones, depending on brand and finish.

I really like the ones we ended up with (I think I posted pics on another thread you were following -- Amerock), and other than the placement on one deeper drawer that I missed while he was putting them on, I am happy with what we decided. I echo that it comes down to personal preference.

Don't know if you can get a feel for it at all in this picture, but here is one view of several drawers.
