HELP! Carpet on the wall stuck on with contact cement, We just bought and are currently moving in to a beautiful old stone farmhouse house from the 1750's but the problem is the former homeowner covered the walls with carpet in four of the rooms.The worst part, she used contact cement to stick it to the walls. I'm looking for any suggestions for getting if off, we've taken it off in one of the rooms and it created a huge mess! My father in law is a professional painter, but he's never seen anything like this before, currently he's trying covering it up with a heavy duty primer followed by a Venetian plaster finish but I would like smooth walls in the other rooms if at all possible. Any suggestions?, Windows, Walls & Doors
Old Door Needs New Hardware, I am in the process of purchasing a house in an older neighborhood in Metro Detroit. My main concern is with the front door of the house. I want to replace the locks when I take ownership of the house, but there seems to be an issue. It looks like the door hardware is built into the door. I do not want to remove the door from the house because it gives it an awesome look, but I will if I have to. Does anyone have any ideas on how to remove this built-in door hardware?, Windows, Walls & Doors

Huge Mirror I Love, I have a huge mirror in my living room, mounted to the wall as a focal point. It's unique and I love the view it gives. But don't know how or what to decorate it with?, Windows, Walls & Doors
Odd wall, the wall between by dining room/kitchen area and the stairs to the basement was opened in a rather odd way (see photos).  The first spindle was actually already removed when we bought the house.  I would like some ideas on what to do with this space.  i like it being open since the dining/kitchen combo is rather small, but spindles are dated.  would like something creative and unique but not to busy looking.  Any Ideas?, Windows, Walls & Doors
