[QUOTE=garry;31724968]Nice, how did you cut the square in the middle of the tile so prefectly?[/QUOTE] Used a dremel with a cutwheel. :V The edges are a bit chipped. It's a messy job.
I painted some walls and skirting boards for my mum. Does that count.

Are all the walls painted like that? To be honest, it's not my favourite style, to me it looks like you live near a paint factory which exploded.
i think it would have looked cooler if you used colours of more extreme arts. i mean like really bright and clear colours. as they are now they look sort of depressing and dull. because the paint has been running down the walls like that and because the colours are so dull, i can't help but to see some dexter-ish room with blood splattered all over the walls. still cool though.

[QUOTE=ButtsexV3;32785241]why[/QUOTE] Why not? and Beanz, I know. Poor planning = poor painting, but eh. It's still cool. The ceiling has much brighter colours.
some parts look like shitstains or a murder scene. To each their own.
Bright colors, and letting them dry between throwing a new color on would've made a much more visually appealing room.
I built a stand for the local trash bin that keeps falling. Its not pretty so I didn't take a picture of it. Now I'm working to build a minecraft style chest.
I bet he was going for something clean and simple but accidentaly painted over his coverage and threw a tantrum.
I would get bad dreams in that but whatever floats your boat I guess.

I've been carving a model flintlock long rifle made out of wood, excuse the crappy camera. Here you can see the lock plate with a placeholder hammer.

build a pedal powered cnc mill
[QUOTE=ButtsexV3;33283922]build a pedal powered cnc mill[/QUOTE] I need more wood scraps and glue.
I could use some decorating and DIY tips, here. I'll be moving into an apartment with some friends soon, and I've claimed the loft for my living quarters. It's got plenty of floor space, but the angled ceiling makes the areas near the walls quite short, and inappropriate for mounting things like shelves or pictures on. Also, this is considered an historic building (built in the early nineteen hundreds, later modified and renovated), meaning that I cannot make any alterations to the building without permission from both the property owner and the city. As such, windows, doors, and other permanent structures that are strictly off-limits. Temporary structures, like shelving units, are only okay if the damage from the installation and removal can be seamlessly repaired before vacating. Painting is acceptable, though, so long as I either use neutral colors, or repaint the room in neutral colors before leaving. For obvious reasons, I would like to leave the exposed brick unaltered. Unfortunately, I have no door, and the acoustics of the room aren't so great for privacy. If I'm up in my room with a friend, I don't necessarily need my roommates in the living room downstairs to hear every little thing that's going on, you dig? So, to combat that, I was thinking of securing some acoustic panels to the angled walls. I figured maybe painting some canvases with bright, solid colors (to add some vibrancy to the room) and backing them with eggfoam before securing them would be a pretty cool effect, and help out a bit with the echo? If you've got any cool tips, ideas, or DIY projects that might really splash up this room on a tight budget, I'd love to hear 'em! [IMG]http://i1115.photobucket.com/albums/k553/BigDumbAmerican/Apartment9.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i1115.photobucket.com/albums/k553/BigDumbAmerican/Apartment10.jpg[/IMG] We won't actually be moving in for about three weeks, so I'm afraid I can't get any more pictures just yet. We are locked into the lease, though, so this is definitely happening, barring some major event. I'd really like to make the room feel more vibrant. Privacy's important, too. I was thinking of putting a screen up near the stairs, to separate that area from the rest of the quarters. The size of the room is about 14x20 ft, with the ceiling being about 4 ft tall at its shortest point. [editline]20th November 2011[/editline] One more thing; does anybody know a way to affix a shelving unit to a brick wall without damaging the brick, and in a way that will allow the shelf to be removed at some point? We have another very cool room, at the top of the entryway stairs, that I would love to transform into a little library, but the floor is canted at a slight angle, as it was once part of the roof of the original structure. It's a very minor angle, but it would still make standing bookshelves stand out somewhat awkwardly. If there were a non-permanent solution to putting up some mounted bookshelves, that would be great. If not, then any other recommendations would be appreciated! Here's the room: [IMG]http://i1115.photobucket.com/albums/k553/BigDumbAmerican/Apartment4.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i1115.photobucket.com/albums/k553/BigDumbAmerican/Apartment3.jpg[/IMG] Also know that there are no electrical outlets in the library area, and that the city will not allow us to add any! I would really like a lighting solution that doesn't require an outlet, because the overhead light doesn't light the area near the windows very effectively.

[/QUOTE] Acoustics are only crappy because the rooms are empty and there's no furniture to absorb the sound thus removing the echo, when you properly move in everything will sound much better and the noise won't spread throughout the whole house. I would know, I've lived in 4 different apartments now and each one had that problem before we furnished them.
