I try to fix myself some stuff at home which has been bothering me for sometime now.
I bought this place almost a year ago and it washed out entirely any extras on
I start slowly with gathering some furniture and now try to get the rest in order.
Can't really hire anyone - budget do not allow so I was wondering if any of you could
place with good resource and tips in regard to Tiles and Wall work.
By the way I did try search via Yahoo but came across lots of commercial sites
rather than some "grandma tricks and tips" , plus most of it it's not even available
in Malaysia ,
where I'm located.
I try to whiten up the gaps between tiles. Malaysia it's a tropic with high humidity
stuff get ugly pretty fast. My tiles on the balcony get some stuff growing on them
very hard to clean with brush and ordinary cleaning chemicals. It's possible but it
takes lots of
time just to work on tiny spot. Also the filling between tiles become very dark and
to wash it. I attach little photo if you could kindly check it out to see what I'm
The walls have some patterns, i'm positive it's not something the develop intend to
do ,it's just
low quality workmanship. In some places it's close too smooth with tiny bumps , in
other the bumps
become more frequent like :
and here is the same wall just 5 feet away , closer to the door frame :
The pattern is very irregular and even cover with new paint still visible.
I try in one room so far and the results are disappointing. I also have lots of
smears like lines
in circular shape , pretty large , like a meter in diameter.
I guess there is no way to smooth it all up w/o applying new layer of plaster on top
like that so perhaps if I could make it equality uneven.
I'm not sure how it is call , I saw one time a guy was holding a roller of some kind ,
spinning it and throwing tiny bits of cement , making the wall spiky. I figure this is
perhaps something I could do .
Do you have any suggestions ? I'm not in need of making it Glass flat/smooth , as
long as it's
equal in the entire room or house i'll be fine .
Any suggestions or url I could refer to are most welcome .
Thank you very much for taking the time to read it.
