Re: The Brown Crown

Thanks for the nice words DD...I get the roller blinds at KMart and they are really very quiet, since they are cloth...I reccomend them and best of all, not to pricey

Re: The Brown Crown

Once again you really set the standard though there are getting to be many excellent efforts coming down the interior trim.

If I can get this house deal closed this week, I can go back to work on mine in april. The exterior paint job will be fun.

Re: The Brown Crown

I originaly trimed the kitchen areas with wood laminate trim, but the mosisture takes it toll over time. The paper oak trim starts to separate from the plastic mold and starts to wrinkle. So this weekend I replaced the trim with aluminum strips which will not have that problem and they also match the stainless steel sink as well. Here are a few pics of the old stuff and the new trim.

Re: The Brown Crown

Brings back memories of when I worked at a tacobell... always had brused hands from banging into the edging on the steam table...

That and skating around the building in non-slip shoes. I can still hear my manager there screaming to stop skating around the place, and how am I doing it on dry nonslip tile. ^.^

Re: The Brown Crown

I have spent the last few weekends working at my real job, but did manage to get some finish work done in the bedroom area a few weeks ago. Put up the carpeted trim along the bedroom wall on the port side wihich just about finishes up that area. Here are some pics of that work.

Re: The Brown Crown

Today I spent this morning putting some pin striping on the outside above and below the rub rails. I'll add some more also to the window skins area on each side as well.
