Not sure! Doesn't Photo Bucket offer you a pre-constructed URL you can use for posting directly to a website? Just copy and paste their URL? Seems like they do but I don't remember for sure.

Oh for heaven's sake! This is what happened when I tried photobucketing these pictures into here. I think I should haul myself off to bed and figure this out when I have adult supervision. (worked a loooong night shift last night). Must go and sleep off the stupid rays. Sorry!

Holly, if you scroll down on the repl page you will see a heading "Attach files" "manage attachments" you get down load pics from your computer and attach them to a post. Your photo bucket pics aren't working.

Never mind, Bud beat me to it.....I really like the color of the counter top.

Nice pics. In the future if one of these guys doesn't beat me to it please pm me and I can help you use some of the features on our site.

TB, How about posting some quick directions for us or point to where to find them. I could only post one photo, then when I tried to post a second photo they both reverted back to the URL text and I lost the first photo. That's why I used two posts, one for each picture. Have no idea where I was going wrong.

Default You guys rock!

Thank you Bud, Oldog, and wow! the big Kahuna himself, Txbuilder himself! I so very much appreciate your patience and kind support. Never having subscribed to a forum before, there is a learning curve for one whose computer time is mostly spent drinking wine and writing long-winded emails.

Seeing those pics full-screen I realized it was rather obvious where my priorities lie... the first items to materialize on the newly painted shelves look suspiciously like alcohol, cookies and coffee. What you don't see is that there is lovely vase of pink and yellow tulips on the table - just to show that I do adhere to some standards of etiquette.

It's time to pour on the gas now and finish this project, as the garden is calling. And it sounds like screams from Beirut. What a mess - we are already well into a ridiculously early spring following on the heels of a ridiculously mild winter and the yard is miles ahead of me already. It's totally my fault, as I bought winter tires for the first time in 20 years here in Shangri-la, having vowed not to spend another winter sliding and screaming my way to and from work. Not a single snowflake and I think I might have had to scrape my windshield twice. $900 bucks worth of rubber to store in the garage. Which is also a mess.

The fun just never ends... I'm taking the rest of this week off from the house to spend a few days with an old friend who found her husband dead in their bed on her return froma business trip to Hawaii. I confess, I'm looking forward to the road trip and the escape from the endless to-do list here. And of course, to re-connect with my best friend from the old days when our kids were still pooing their pants.

Again, thank you for your tolerance of my ignorance! I promise to practise.

Holly

Default Where did you find chrome edging?

We are almost finished with our 50s diner in our finished basement...and for the soda fountain bar counter, I have searched for YEARS to find chrome edging for the counter!!! Wherever did you find it? !!!!! Please name names--store, brand of chrome, etc, so I can find it if I'm nowhere near you.

THANKS!
Mimi
