I have a very small budget and area rugs are proving to be expensive any ideas on where to get one or how to make one?
I have a dining room and living room that have brown carpet, im looking to cover them up with two area rugs,
I would like to buy a regular rectangular area rug and round off one of the corners (can't buy this shape). Is there a good way to do this?
I accidentally melted a hole in my carpet when a lamp fell over. The carpet store said they could fix it for a huge pile of money. I don't know how they were planning on fixing it. If I knew the "right" way of doing it, I could probably do it myself. Any ideas?

I'm looking for ideas on how carpet pieces might be joined together into a whole (e.g. rugs made from carpet samples). The gaffer tape solution which is posted all over the web in tutorials isn't strong, only lasts a few months and doesn't work well with small carpet pieces. I've successfully sewn carpet piece in the past with fishing line (so the stitches are strong and invisible) however this technique only works well with larger pieces due to the time it takes and amount of work. Has anyone here tried any other techniques and been successful with both large and small carpet pieces? My other idea was to use wood glue to glue the pieces to a hessian sheet. I haven't tested this but the hessian base on most carpet pieces should merge well with the hessian sheet. thoughts or ideas appreciated.

I have an 8 by 5 olefin area rug that needs a thorough cleaning. It has gotten a fare bit of grime in it but i don't think any stains would be permanent. The finished product need not be perfect. The solution need be simple enough to warrant the hassle!

Hey, I have a 2000 Toyota Echo with holes in the carpet I've done a fair amount of searching, but I can't find an aftermarket manufacturer that sells pre-molded carpets for this car. Has anyone experience in replacing their car carpet with a custom carpet? How do you compensate for the lack of molding? Thanks, kd.

So i have these, and I just thought, that since the sub's driver (is that the right term?) is on the bottom, facing the ground, and I have carpet...does the carpet impair the sub? ...Since carpet absorbs sound...Just a thought. Should I put it on top of a piece of plexi glass or something?

I was wiring up some stuff behind my door, and found yet ANOTHER bug. Now I know I asked before and no one could really tell me what it was, but this is a completely different bug than the first one, and yet I have no idea what it is. I have one REALLY clear picture here, surely someone can tell me?!?

I knocked a burning candle off a side board and the wax has made a mess of our new carpet.
I was cleaning out my room when I lifted up an old shirt and saw an exploded old dryed up juice box. I finished cleaning and saw the stain was yellow and kind of green and it has dark spots on it (guessing mold). My dad wants to sell the house and get a new one because we are running low on money at the moment so I couldn't tell him and get a carpet cleaner guy in here. Anyway I looked online and it said to spray vinegar diluted in water so I did that but I don't think anything happened, so is there any home remedy or easy way I can clean this? Thanks.

Can I successfully lay flooring —wood or "floating" floor— over already-installed indoor-outdoor carpet? The carpet has virtually no- pile, and I thought it would be a good insulator in lieu of underlay. If this is a terrible idea...please don't mince words...I can take it! (I'm just working on "no-budget-reno" and the carpet looks as good or better than any underlay I've seen— plus it's already installed! : ) Thanks for any advice anyone may have.

I am a carpet manufacturer based out of Agra (India) and I have been quite captivated by the magic of scanimation. I have now been thinking of making a series of carpets in scanimated designs and using a coffee table with black printed stripes in lieu of bar mask. (This idea is not mine, please see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ua7HOX32PGA … I have no intention of copying it , but taking inspiration from him I wish to take this to a whole new level) I want to know, if this is possible in only black/white or can we use more colors as well. For example, maybe I can have 5-6 turtles with their legs in black , the background white and the turtle’s body in color. Will then I get the effect of movement ? Could someone help me in preparing some designs ?

It's simply that. I always see drum kits set up on a small rug that they take with them. Why?

Hi everyone, It's my first time posting to this forum, so I hope I'm posting in the right section. Please go easy on me: ) I'm looking to make a genie costume similar to ModMischief's awesome construction. That is her costume pictured below. I have not made the carpet section yet, so it can be altered to fit any plans for what I am trying to accomplish. https://www.instructables.com/id/Genie-on-a-Flying-Carpet/ I would like the flying carpet to be a little different though. I am trying to create a simple mechanism that will give the carpet some movement. I want it to mimic the up/down wave motion as if the carpet is actually flying mid air. Can anyone suggest something that would get me going in the right direction for ideas? I will have a 2nd person with me that could assist me once the costume is on, if there is some kind of crank mechanism that would work. Any ideas are appreciated!

Below is a link to an example of an expensive floor mat made from recycled leather belts. I want to know is how do you think they are attached? Is there another mat underneath that they are glued to? What type of backing is involved? What type of adhesive would be durable enough for this type of application? What is the best way to cut the leather to make a precise edge? Should the leather be treated to make it last longer? There must be an inexpensive solution. Please help me out. Thanks.http://www.ecosalon.com/from_fashion_accessory_to_floor_mat/

I really don't like cleaning my house but I don't want to live in a garbage house. I'd like to have a floor cleaning system. For carpeted areas, I envision the that the system would use a Roomba and dock to a central vac system so that I wouldn't have to empty the Roomba. For the non-carpeted areas, I'd like to use a Scooba that connects to water and sewer. What are your thoughts?

After reading online I thought about an easy cheap alternative to lessen the noise in my garage studio room from escaping to the outside world. After the new construction the smaller space seems to echo much more than before, thus the need for more soundproofing/deadening. I though about building forms with plywood backing and filling them with readymix quickrete with wire mesh on top. After fastening the frames onto the brakets I have that will be firmly fastened to the wall in staggered pattern drywall and carpet padding will be applied on top of the plywood side of the form that would be facing toward the middle of the room thus creating a second relatively thick layer of sound deadening with roughly 1 1/2 inched of dead air space trapped between the outer and inner layer walls. Has anyone ever tried this? Thoughts, comments, suggestions welcome. To clarify: From outside to inside I would have: Siding - Standard Wrap and OSB - Stud- Moisture Barrier- Insulation - 5/8 Drywall - 1 1/2 inches of dead air space - Wire mesh side of concrete forms 1 in thick - concrete- plywood backing side of form - carpet padding - drywall - carpet Thanks. John

I have a small fire-rated safe that I would like to bolt down in my upstairs apartment. I can't drill holes through the sides of it and put screws into the wall studs. There's a single heavy bolt hole in the safe's bottom. Does anyone have any (real) suggestions on how I might secure it to the floor? Is there likely to be space between my floor and the ceiling below me that I can slip a brace into? EDIT: I lifted up the edge of the carpet, and it looks like the floor under the carpet padding is concrete.

Found a few easy recipes for making green cleaning products... Anyone have more suggestions? "Americans spend millions of dollars a year on cleaning supplies. This spring, make your own cleaning agents with these recipes from EarthShare and EarthWays, two nonprofit environmental organizations. The recipes are friendly to the environment and to your bank account." Air fresheners: Simmer a small amount of cinnamon, orange peel, and cloves on the stove to give off a pleasant fragrance in your home. Glass cleaner: Mix 2 tablespoons of borax or washing soda with three cups of water for sparkling windows and mirrors. Carpet freshener: Sprinkle dry cornstarch or baking soda on your carpet and vacuum. Furniture polish: Combine 1/2 cup lemon juice to 1 cup vegetable oil, olive oil, or mayonnaise. Apply to rag.
