    Where do I get replacement venetian blind slats ?

    I did end up getting replacement slats from the link above, it just took a little time to replace each one but glad I found that web site. The shipping is crazy due to the LONG box they have to send them in (as long as the longest one you are ordering) but still a lot cheaper than replacing the...

    Kitchen counter top laminate intersection separating

    House was built in 2002, we moved in in 2005. My laminate kitchen counter tops have a seam to each side of the sink. It appears that since the sink area is at an odd angle (45 degree maybe ?) to the rest of the kitchen the builder had to create a seam there. Anyway over the years I have...

    Where do I get replacement venetian blind slats ?

    Indeed there are, and I already replaced one with that, but they cover up the holes in the bottom support, so not as appealing, though a viable solution .... one time per blind. I may have to do that if there are no other options, but would prefer to find extras somewhere.

Over time a few slats have broken due to the window locks sticking out - if you don't hold the blind away from the window when raising or lowering they hang and SNAP! there goes another one. Mostly just me not paying close...

    Questions about sealing a Travertine patio table

    We just bought a 36" round Travertine patio table. The table top is actually different shaped Travertine pieces held together with mortar. The distance between pieces is up to a quarter inch, so its a fair bit of mortar. I know I should seal it, but wondering about the mortar - will whatever...

    GLass shower leaking, mold developing, not sure where the leak is

    Its on the first floor, so nothing below. There are several cracked tiles (hairline) adjacent to the shower, but I have those scattered around the house in random locations, I always chalked those up to the house settling. Also, the house was only lived in for 9 months after it was new, then...

    GLass shower leaking, mold developing, not sure where the leak is

    Thanks so much for suggestions! You are suggesting I just cut out the bad section of drywall, try to peer inside (with what ? something like a dental mirror ?) then patch it ? "resealing around the door". You mean replace the rubber seal all the way around ? I still can't figure out how...

    GLass shower leaking, mold developing, not sure where the leak is

    I have a framed glass shower, the type with a metal channel along the bottom that has weep holes for water that falls down the glass to escape back into the shower floor. Both sides of the glass have a channel along the metal frame, that has been covered with a rubber strip that has become...
