I was hanging stuff in the garage, and could not find the studs. The first one was 12 inches from the corner, then 16, then 13 1/2, then 15, then 14, etc. I needed the stuff hung further down, so after a lot of small nail holes, I cut some sheet rock off of the bottom. I found a 2-by-4 stud, and the next was 14 1/2 inches away, and the next stud was a 4-by-4, not a 2-by-4. Any reason for this headache?
I bought an older ranch home that has a pink tile kitchen counter. I like the look of tile, but this kitchen clearly needs updating and I want a counter that looks more modern. What new tile materials or styles should I consider?
