u/yacht_boy · 42 pointsr/HomeImprovement

As an old house lover (and fellow old house owner), I'm begging you to please restore those windows! It can be done!

I'm making this response extra long and detailed since this question comes up from time to time. Hopefully it can be a resource for others.

But I say this as a guy who bought a real wreck of a house where the previous owner had let everything go. We needed to fix all 45 openings at once as part of a major rehab, and after 6 weeks of effort, about $3000 of experimentation (including taking a week off work and hiring two people to help me), I finally gave up and put in vinyl windows. It completely broke my heart, and my house is uglier because of it. But sometimes, an old window is just too far gone to save. But in that process I learned a lot and I'd like to share a few things.

  1. Old windows were designed to be maintained. That's why after almost 150 years your windows are still in pretty good shape. Modern vinyl windows are designed to be disposable. Once the seals break, they start to stick in their channels, etc., your only option is to put them in a landfill.

  2. Properly maintained old windows with properly installed weather stripping and properly installed/maintained storm windows are every bit as energy efficient as modern vinyl windows. This article goes into detail and has a huge list of references including links to primary research on the topic for the people who don't believe me.

  3. If you are at all handy, you can figure out how to maintain your old windows.

  4. If you live in a place where old houses are common, there may well be a local shop that specializes in this kind of thing. Here in Boston, we have two great resources. The nonprofit Boston Building Resources does classes on window restoration and sells all the stuff you'll need. And Olde Bostonian will do it all for you if you have the cash. This isn't Home Depot level stuff, so look for specialists.

  5. Old windows are a big source of lead paint dust, especially from the two sashes (the two actual window parts that move up and down) rubbing in the frames. If you have kids or are planning on having them, removing the lead paint from the windows is the biggest lead paint improvement you can make in your home. Even if you aren't planning on having kids, work safely. Grownups can get lead poisoning, too. Or, like us, you might have an unplanned pregnancy. Or you might have friends who have kids. Or want to sell it to a nice family someday. Get a lead-safe respirator (not cheap dust masks), do as little dry sanding as possible, and take the windows to a spot outside of your house (garage, shed, outside on a nice day) to do work on them so you don't spread lead dust all over your house. If you can set up a little containment zone with some plastic sheeting on the ground, that's good practice. EPA would have you go nuts with plastic and tyvek suits and so on. That may be overkill, but common sense tells you to minimize spreading lead dust around your house and keep it out of your body. Also, if it's possible to pull off the old trim and the old window sills and replace that with new trim while you've got the sashes out, that will get rid of another huge source of lead paint. If not, consider repainting those pieces with encapsulating paint after you put it all back together.

  6. The biggest lesson I learned is DON'T DO THEM ALL AT ONCE! We had to because we needed to renovate the whole house. But it sounds like you don't have to. Pick a room where you can live without a window for a little while, like the attic or a rarely used guest bedroom. Pull ONE window apart and figure out how it works. Repair and replace that one window. Then do a second window in that room, and so on. As you get better at it, you might move up to pulling all of the windows in a single room out at the same time.

  7. Steam is your friend. Buy a steamer. The size and type depend on how much work you will be doing. I tried a couple and found this one to be the most ideal. Steam will soften up paint and putty so that you can easily scrape it right off.

  8. You'll want some good specialty tools. I really like these scrapers. One. Two. Three. I also found this set of small prybars (especially the very smallest one) to be invaluable in getting old windows apart.

  9. If you're going to be doing a bunch of windows, set yourself up with a really comfortable work zone including a big flat work surface (plywood over sawhorses) and a place to put all your scrapers, glazing tools, etc. Hopefully you have a garage or shed where you can leave stuff for a while.

  10. And last but not least...don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good. These windows are 150 years old. You can go insane building steam stripping boxes and trying to make the paint perfect and trying to get everything functioning the way it did the day the house was built. But you don't have to. Just get them to the point where they open and close, the glass is not broken or rattling, and they are reasonably weatherstripped. Let the exterior storms do more of the work on energy efficiency. I would definitely NOT recommend putting each sash into a steam box and stripping all of the glazing and paint and starting from scratch. That way lies madness.

    OK, on to your questions.

  • Here's a great video about disassembling a window. I found all sorts of amazing things done to the windows in my house that made them hard to disassemble. Generally speaking, first cut the paint between the sash and the frame with a utility knife and see if that works. If not, look for nails and screws that might be holding the window sash in place. Often these are painted over and are hard to find.

  • It seems you might have single sash windows. That's unusual for an 1870s house but not completely unheard of. I had some of those in my house. After you've taken all the trim off and removed the lower sash, you will be able to pull the top sash out. There will be something holding it in place. Figure out what that thing is and remove it. As for the lower sashes, previous owners might have gotten frustrated with broken sash cords and covered up the pocket holes. When you disassemble the window you will hopefully be able to figure out what they did and undo it.

  • There are plenty of good guides on how to weatherize old windows. The DOE has a great page on the topic with links to detailed instructions on a variety of methods. The video series linked below is also good.

    General resources and tools I found useful:

  • The Save America's Windows forum, organized by topic, is a gem (if not always easy to find what you're looking for).

  • This 4-part window rehab workshop youtube video series is pretty good.

  • Book 1: Save America's Windows: Caring for older and historic wood windows.

  • Book 2: The Window Sash Bible: a A Guide to Maintaining and Restoring Old Wood Windows
u/originalmetalqueen · 11 pointsr/BabyBumps

First time posting here in Baby Bumps, but I’ve been a long time commenter/fan of this sub. Currently 38+6 and a FTM. I LOVE seeing everyone’s nurseries and am so excited to share ours! Had so much fun putting the nursery together.

Here are some of the things we got that I love in our nursery:

  1. Birch tree removable wallpaper: NuWallpaper NU1650 Birch Tree Peel and Stick Wallpaper https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00Q00PA40/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_IgYADbV0S2SB6

    I know we will probably have to adjust things in the nursery once the baby comes and he gets older (I’ve seen plenty of moms comment on here how they laugh at some of the nurseries because they’ll eventually get wrecked or puked on or whatever) but for right now, I absolutely love it. I wanted to have a lush, forest feel...with dragons!

    Good luck to all the moms out there. I’m so excited to become a mom myself. :)
u/touretteski · 5 pointsr/quilting

Notions?

I try to be picky about which specialty rulers I add to my collection because they're often expensive and i don't want a billion of them... but i do have a small wish list of a few. I want the Jaybird Quilts Hex N More & Sidekick rulers. Angela Walters set of quilting rulers. Creative Grids Pineapple ruler. Creative Grids Folded Corner Clipper Tool [I just saw this video today and have decided I NEED this](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKQ9VS8e0lI&t=2s)

​

There's this gadget that is super cute and way overpriced [Roll & Press](https://www.amazon.ca/Clover-7812-Roll-Press-Light/dp/B01M7XAHFM/ref=pd_rhf_se_p_img_12?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=53S1QXXDF1KZPN96EEYN) that you can get for $3 in a not as cute [wallpaper seam roller](https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B000I1THI2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1). I use this way more than i expected, and dont need to go to my iron nearly as much now.

​

This [seam guide](https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07JQMNXDZ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) has seriously stepped up my piecing accuracy game since i got it.

​

For Christmas 2017 I asked for/received 5 large spools of excellent quality thread and don't have to worry about running out anytime soon. I got Aurifil 50wt 100% cotton in white, medium grey, and black & also monofilament in clear and smoke. Almost 15,000 yards of thread! [HEAVEN!!!](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4G_CAYf-itw)

​

Happy Early Birthday! I hope it rocks!!!

u/HowQuestionMark · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

Throwing out a few ideas.

Starting with the pine countertop. Apply a contact paper such as this marble one to add a more refined look. Choose a contact paper that is made for countertops and matches your home. Consider something similar to your bathroom or kitchen counters. There are many styles of contact paper such a tile and stained wood. I would also add table legs like these to stabilize the countertop, especially for my next suggestion. Make sure the countertop sits at least a couple of inches above your washer and dryer (I know it seems like a no brainer but just in case).

To help distract away from everything thats going on, I would add a cube shelving unit like this one. Use fabric cube boxesto store your detergent and other cleaning supplies. They come in different colors and designs. Make sure you order the right size for your shelving unit. This idea would help visually clean up the space. If you decided to do this, I would remove the wall shelf. I would not suggest doing this without attaching table legs to the pine.

Throw up a tension rod with a neutral curtain to divide off the room. I would use rings since fabric on rod isn’t good for constant movement. If your home calls for it or you’re into some extra, look into decorative hooks.

Hopefully my suggestions will help you create a great laundry room that fits your needs and requests.

u/jillrabbit · 1 pointr/InteriorDesign

Thank you so much! I LOVE your ideas. I really like the first wallpaper, but it wouldn't work like you said The keyhole wallpaper was an awesome idea, so I looked up some and this came up wallpaper. I ordered it! I really like it, you can't tell from the picture, but it's damask background behind the keys. I am only doing one wall with the wallpaper and possibly the hallway, but I am not sure yet.

I am definitely doing that pocket wall watch...I would have NEVER ever thought of something like that.

So, the big blank wall will have that wallpaper, I have to find a big mirror and then see what else is going to happen over there lol.

I love when people help me out with my ideas, so thank you!

u/maplechocolatepie · 12 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Hey! I actually just did this exact job in my house on the fireplace. Probably about 6-7 layers of paint for me. I did a ton of research and settled on smart strip (amazon link below) - there is also a pretty good YouTube video of someone doing outside brick. I put the paste on very thick and used the waxy paper to cover for 2 full days. When I came back to it with a heavy duty razor scraper, it came off pretty easily. I’d say I still spent 5min per brick on the later part of the process but absolutely love how the project came out.

You could probably get results that approach professional work like this using a couple machines in conjunction. Obviously pro's tools are going to get things that just won't come out otherwise... but time and determination tends to make up most of the gap.

I'd probably start with the steam to help loosen the really gnarly spots/stains and move on to the extractor to pull all the gunk out.

Combine that with some good upholstery shampoo and some strong degreaser and some elbow grease with a semi-stiff brush and you could get anything out of your interior.

u/rosinall · 4 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Are you in the right place? This is Home Improvement.

Okay, I'm sorry. If you want a brick wall, this is one way. If you used the right weak adhesive and just painted the wall with sanded, grout color paint instead of grouting, you could pop them off and skim coat.

A photographic wallpaper may get you where you want with just a paint job needed when you leave:

And, these seem the best overall value and ease of removal, the look is a bit clunky:
http://www.fauxpanels.com/style-brick.php?gclid=CM7_iKn_v8ICFWgF7AodkCUAyQ

I like the styrofoam idea. Find a foam shop and they will help you find the right foam and slice it into a thousand brick-sized pieces. Throw a party and have everyone use their fingernails to weather it or scrape notes. Mount and paint.

Wondering about a deep skim coat and stamped concrete forms ...

u/2worldtraveler · 2 pointsr/interiordecorating

I've been in love with this wallpaper for a while. It would look great in a theater room.
https://www.amazon.com/Novogratz-CO472-Constellations-Removable-Wallpaper/dp/B07CJSZWFB/

Also, be patient with looking for things that fit your theme and build it up over time. There's a lot of joy in that. IMO, of course. But also, yes, nothing wrong with merging those themes if you're in a hurry.

u/thesongbirdy · 2 pointsr/DesignMyRoom

That front room is so large, you have enough space for both a living/tv space and a playspace, if you want.

I'm not sure what your budget is, so I don't want to suggest too much, but I made a real quick sketch of what might work. The new pieces in this picture include a new bookshelf to separate the playspace from the living space, a TV stand, and extra seating. Side tables with a lamp or two, as well as a floor lamp would be nice, too.

As far as the bookshelves go, the fact that they are stark white and the rest of the room and molding is a cream color actually makes the bookshelves look cheaper. Are you open to painting the bookshelves? If that sounds like too much work, maybe lining the inside with a contact paper that ties the bookcase and walls together. Here are a couple of options: 1, 2, 3. Further upgrade those bookcases with a splurge on some cool handles. Anthropologie has some really neat and unique pieces that would really elevate the look of those shelves.

Are the curtains and valance staying? They don't really support your homey/modern taste.

Where did you get that pup-style tent? The grey one? I've been looking for a non-teepee style tent.

u/BrewCrewKevin · 5 pointsr/Homebrewing

Agreed.

I have all my friends keep New Glarus bottles because they are AWESOME to remove. The adhesive is water soluble and they literally fall off in an iced down cooler (which can be a pain at the beach, but great for me!)

I also recommend a small glass scraper blade like this guy. Even the hardest labels only take a minute to scrape off. Especially when already soaked.

u/weasel-like · 6 pointsr/HomeImprovement

I would remove all the paper and re-paint. It's going to be a bitch of a job, but it's doable with steam and remover solution. I used this cool little tool called the Paper Tiger which puts little holes in your paper to let the removal solution seep in and makes removal easier. It was pretty useful if you use as directed.

The old adage I live by in my house is "Do it right, or do it twice."

u/thatscoolkyle · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

I had really good luck with a wallpaper steamer. It heats the water really hot, in a plastic square. You hot it in one place for 20-30 seconds, then scrub with a cleaning liquid. It's not the fastest process, but it worked really well. One of these things:

https://www.amazon.com/Wagner-0282018-Steamer-1-Gallon-Wallpaper/dp/B0009XEL4O

It's not a process you really want to repeat, so I concur with sealing it well, once it's clean.

u/ZombieElvis · 1 pointr/DIY

https://www.amazon.com/Zinsser-2976-PaperTiger-Scoring-Wallpaper/dp/B0002YWWJG

Basically it's like a hockey puck that you hold in your hand, but there's a little caster inside with gears for wheels. The gear teeth are sharpened and only long enough to puncture wallpaper without harming the paper on the plasterboard. You hold the "puck" in your hand and rub it all over the wallpaper. All those little holes make it easier for steam or glue remover to penetrate the paper. It's a must for very thick wallpaper or the really glossy, waxy, plastic-y kind.

u/Johny_McJonstien · 2 pointsr/Aquariums

Try some filter floss. Pack a bunch into the final stage of your filter(s) it does a great job of cleaning up the very fine floaties.

As for the algae, a razor blade does wonders. Just be careful around the silicone joints. Something like this is easier on the hands than just a blade.

u/waka324 · 3 pointsr/HomeImprovement

If it is paper-like, get a wallpaper remover (like this: http://www.amazon.com/Wagner-0282018-Steamer-1-Gallon-Wallpaper/dp/B0009XEL4O/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1418328051&sr=8-1&keywords=wagner+wall+paper+steamer) and let it do it's thing on small sections at a time.

My Fiancee and I (really her though :) ) removed lots of glued-down linoleum paper backing after scraping up the top part. Worked great, just took a while with the steamer and a good putty knife.

u/rugbystud137 · 7 pointsr/HomeImprovement

This was the product we used, but the 50sq ft version. This is much more involved than the paint and holds up much better. The top coat was the only tricky part, we didn't get it on quite perfect, but now that it's dry you can't tell unless you are looking at just the right angle.

Cutting them up to inlay the nanoleafs was a bit of a pain in the ass, bit otherwise it was super easy to attach them. Amazon recommended some kind of plaster to adhere them to the walls - DO NOT BUY IT. It would require you to hold each panel in place for a number of minutes until it's hopefully strong enough to hold. Also it's messy... Instead, just get some 3M double sided tape and call it a day.

u/reinewguy · 3 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Couple thoughts on removing the wallpaper:

  1. See if you can get a drywall knife to slide under the wallpaper - ideally between the wallpaper and its paper backing. When it's painted over, I've found wallpaper can be a lot more tear resistant and easier to remove. If you can, try to gently loosen up big sections at a time and rip 'em off. Then just steam off the paper backing at the end (you can try tearing off the paper backing, but if you're tearing up the drywall just get a steamer for ~$50).
  2. If that doesn't work you can try using something like the paper tiger to perforate everything and then use a steamer to slowly pull-off/chip-away-at the top layer. This will be a lot of work. You'll still probably need to steam off the paper backing at the end.
u/LPOMickeyD · 1 pointr/AdeptusCustodes

I tried and tried and tried to paint realistic looking marble but was unsatisfied with the results. So I took a file and smoothed all of the tops of my bases down and used contact paper. Because it's a vinyl gloss, it looks like polished marble and I'm very happy with it. 6 dollars and it's covered my whole army, even with avoiding spots that don't have the marble veins in it.

u/ReactivePortal · 1 pointr/DIY

I agree with this. Perf the paper, then steam. Some of the older paper is quite thick and needs perforation before steaming, don't go too deep tho!~

Perforator

You can kind of do the same thing with a sharp blade, but be very careful not to score too deep, if anything a scratch will do.

One more tip... spray the wallpaper after scoring with a light mist of water, then apply your steam. Move your steamer nice and slow. Tie Chi, not karate.

Hmm I hadn't thought of removable wallpaper.

I just took a look at some and thought this brick one would look sweet as an accent wall (the wall with my TV)

I'd still want to change up the colors of the other walls though. Any ideas on what color would work well? Perhaps a dark grey?

As for the carpet, I sort of like the color.

As someone who has removed a lot of crap from glass in my time, mix some dish soap and hot water and spread it over and around the sticker. Then get a good flat razer blade like this:

I am indeed UK, and I might even have a tester of Egyptian Cotton from picking my living room paint!

I actually found it on a Buzzfeed article! It was in the background of a listicle point flogging something else, so I did some searching, leading me to Home Depot, and then Amazon US: https://www.amazon.com/Novogratz-CO472-Constellations-Removable-Wallpaper/dp/B07CJSZWFB
It's self adhesive, and with the complexity of the pattern, I'm thinking getting a pro in is better than me trying to muddle my way through it!

u/omg_pwnies · 1 pointr/DIY

I would personally strip it. Try a 50/50 mix of white vinegar and warm water in a spray bottle. Douse it down, let it sit for a few minutes and it might just wipe right off the walls with a scraper/trowel. You might try gently scoring the paper with a box cutter or an exacto knife before you douse it, that seems to let the vinegar soak in.

If that doesn't work, DIF should take it off.

I say this because if it's textured slightly I don't see how you're going to get a smooth finish if you paint over it.

u/racist_stl_redditor · 2 pointsr/AskCulinary

Nah I wouldn't do it, because you need a heavy duty spatula/trowel for the smashing and perhaps even an industrial scraper like this one they recommend for getting every last bit of beef off.

Just invest in a cast iron pan, best $25 you will ever spend in the kitchen guaranteed.

u/theinfamousloner · 4 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

Here is the quick and dirty: Clear the room out as good as you can. Lay down painters plastic. Pick up a product called Dif and a tool called a paper tiger, available at hardware stores near the paint, or at regular old paint stores. Follow the instructions to apply. I use a pump sprayer to apply the dif mix. Use this style scraper but make sure you dull the blade's edge beforehand, or you will nick the crap out of your wall. I like to put a horizontal slice across the wall about chest high, then start pulling from that slice. Try to take the biggest piece off the wall that you can. Make sure you get both the wallpaper and the glue layer. The glue layer looks beige and fuzzy when dry but turns paper-bag brown when wet. When all the paper is off, go over the walls with a damp rag to remove any remaining bits of glue. If you have any questions let me know.

edit: You will need to reapply the dif fairly regularly, so I suggest wetting one wall/area at a time. Also added some info above.

Newbie here. I've got several items purchased at auction that are in new condition but the outer packaging/boxes are in various states non-new condition. Some of the are damaged (ripped, taped, various stickers and other markings) and some are missing entirely (so the item is packaged in a non-retail box).

Can I sell any of these items on Amazon and/or FBA? If so, what condition? Can I sell some of these items as USED (LIKE NEW) condition if they are well-packaged in plain white or brown cardboard boxes as long as I disclose that the retail box is missing. But I'm a new Amazon seller so obviously I need to be careful to avoid any problems especially early on.

For example, I have one of these in new condition, obviously never used. All parts and the manual are included, can I sell on Amazon as long as I disclose the non-retail packaging? What about FBA? I also have several smallish household items in similar condition (end tables, lighting fixtures, office chairs, etc.).

Thanks for whatever input anyone can provide.

(EDIT: I've actually already listed that steam cleaner on Amazon, but when I saw this thread today I figured it would be good to get some feedback from some users here.)

That is a different product than what OP used. This is the correct one. Seems to have better reviews.

I finally succeeded in removing duct tape residue from my tank using a razor blade paint removal tool that I found at Walmart for a few bucks.

u/ssschlippp · 4 pointsr/DIY

I used to do regrout and recaulk work every day. The best way is to use 4" razor blade/scraper to cut/scrape it out where you can by first cutting along the length of it and the scraping against the surface with the corner of the blade, changing the blades often helps a lot. Then go back with a grout getter to scrape whatever is left off the surface. If you keep the grout getter flat against one surface with firm pressure and the corner of the head pressed into the corner between the two surfaces you should be able to scrape pretty aggressively without scratching anything, though you do have to be extra careful on plastic, fiberglass, or any kind of resurfaced ceramic/porcelain (such as an epoxy resurfaced bathtub).

At the end of the day, there really is no magic fix. A heat gun or solvents can help, but sometimes, especially with really old caulk, it just takes a lot of patience and elbow grease.

I bought this steamer myself. It was worth every cent. I believe it was 2-4 times faster (compared to Fabric Softener and hot water) and much cleaner. You can always sell it on craigslist when you are done with it.

Spend $75 on a steam cleaner. You no doubt have other things, like grout, that are going to need some heavy duty cleaning as well, and the steam cleaner can do that too.

In this video, she gets to the oven at 7:15. Actually I'm planning to tackly my kitchen with this thing tomorrow. I should take before and afters.

u/PageFault · 5 pointsr/ucf

For stickers on glass, don't use goo-gone. Use a razor blade to scrape the glass.

https://www.amazon.com/Hyde-Tools-13050-Scraper-Blades/dp/B000BPEPSC

It does not scratch, and takes less than a minute. Also, use it for your glass top stoves too.... Years of baked on grime on the rings will come off and it will look like new.

It's not. They are just decorative panels to cover a wall. Zero sound deadening but might do a bit of sound diffusion. https://www.amazon.com/Art3d-Decorative-Panels-Diamond-Design/dp/B01A6TV9H2

u/wedgie · 7 pointsr/HomeImprovement

You can get a spiky tool that will puncture the wall paper and make it possible to either spread a wallpaper release agent or steam the wallpaper off.

I don't know anything about any of those products, but figured they would give you a place to start more research.

EDIT: you will probably need to skim coat some areas of the walls and retexture.

Good for Dallas for finding the adhesive that's most appropriate for the job.

I wish Houston had it and would use it a LOT.


So, yeah, FIRST: Don't leave your car parked on a public street without moving it for 3 days or more. If leaving it there is your only option, you have to go move it a foot or two every couple of days, but that's still wrong.


Second, get an old wash rag or terry cloth towel or rag and soak it with Goo Gone and drape it across the sticker residue. Let it sit there for 5 to 10 minutes. If it won't stay there, hold it or find some way to anchor it.


Then use a straight-edged razor, installed in a paint scraper (they cost less than 2 bucks) and the stuff will come off.


This will take a little effort - kind of like having to move a car every 2 days - so you may just have to sell the car.

u/InfallibleBiship · 3 pointsr/DIY

Get a wallpaper scorer and some DIF gel. Both are usually available at your local hardware store. Score the border, spray with gel, wait about 10-15 minutes and peel/scrape off the border. If it's stubborn, spray once more, wait another 15 minutes and try again.
