If it’s true that focusing on gratitude can increase your sense of well-being, than this project is bound to make you delirious with joy. Although you can do this by yourself, I suggest you team up with your kids. It’s a great chance to teach them about being appreciative and the power of simply saying Thank You.
Art: Lester Potts, a rural Alabama saw miller, was all about work. As Alzheimer’s stole his cognitive ability, he began attending a dementia daycare center where a retired artist volunteered his time. The results were astounding. Art offered him a method of communication when his verbal abilities had failed.
First you should inspect the condition of the linoleum floor in question to make sure it is still in good condition. For this purpose you have to thoroughly clean it. Make sure you scrub it well. You should get all the floor wax off and might have to use an industrial strength cleaner available in home improvement stores to get the job done. When the floor is dry, check it for holes and cracks. A magnifying glass would be a good tool to use to ensure you find even the tiniest flaw in your linoleum floor.
Let’s move on to living rooms. Let’s say you have a sea grass area rug and woven wood Roman shades on your windows. There are two “woven” elements that work together and compliment each other. If your dining table is nearby and visible to your living area, another sea grass rug is too matching and begins to form the custom paint by numbers by number look. A wool or synthetic wool rug will compliment the sea grass rug and add another texture and style element that coordinates but does not match.
Once you are done with repairing the holes and cracks, it is time to waterproof your walls. You will need a waterproofing mix for this purpose. There are several epoxy or latex waterproof mixes available in the market. All you need to do is add water to them and they are ready for use. Before you start using the waterproofing mix, make sure you prepare the basement wall. Remove any kind of chipped or peeled paint by number kits. Also, ensure that you moisten the wall before you apply the waterproofing mix. You could use a garden hose for this purpose.
Wait until the floor is completely dry. Next you have to apply the primer. You should choose an oil-based one. Your primer and top coat should be oil-based, which will aid in the floor cleaning, because it is water repellent. Additionally, the top coat should be labeled as ‘floor paint’. You want to make sure that your paint will be able to endure the heavy duty traffic it might face in some areas of the floor. You can apply the primer to the floor just like you would to a wall. Apply a thick layer of primer, which will aid in masking any imperfections that might have been left after the previous treatment step. If you are unhappy with the evenness and texture of the surface area, you might have to sand down the floor again and apply another coat of primer.
Cross-stitch can be a fun and rewarding hobby for young and old. Even youngsters can get into starter kits and explore the creative side of themselves as they do simple stitches and create memorable pieces for themselves and family. Why not stop by your local craft store or the craft area in your retail store and pick up a small kit – who knows, maybe you’re a stitcher at heart and just didn’t know it!
