Small drywall repair is a much larger task that most people think. It usually takes three visits before the surface is ready for painting. The number one reason for drywall repair is water-related, but that’s not necessarily because the drywall gets wet. Plumbers are also a major source – they cut large holes in drywall to get access to pipes, fix the pipes, and then leave. Not all plumbers of course – but we affectionately call those that do, “drywall terrorists.” FIXIT handles all kinds of small drywall repairs; we’ve patched walls on a boat, repaired the ceiling after squirrels were ‘evicted’ from the attic, and fixed what our client referred to as a ‘fist sized hole’ (we didn’t ask). There isn’t much anyone can do to make the drywall repair any faster, but we try to combine fixing other little things around the house while we are there.
One of my favorite things about staying in a boutique hotel is the decor. The color of the walls, the pictures and furniture all seem to be pieced together so nicely. I wanted to make my bedroom feel like a boutique bedroom. Sleep is so important for both our mental and physical health, feeling good in your bedroom is key. I took the time today to go on a few sites including blogs and just wanted to share some ideas.
I really liked this blog as the pictures here remind me of a trip to France.

Being a condo owner I am always looking for ways to make my small space seem bigger. This article in the National Post has some great ideas. I’m going to look into Tania Richardson’s idea about a dual purpose breakfast bar and I might even introduce some soft grey by repainting one of my walls. Installing a new breakfast bar or painting a wall are just the kind of small jobs that Fixit! handles. I think I could make this happen with only a few hours of one of our handyman’s time.
It’s no accident everything has more than one function in the model suite for Jade Waterfront Condos. Each room in the 809-square-foot two-bedroom suite is used with purpose: Built-in couches extend into a kitchen banquette, a breakfast bar doubles as a dining table and a guest room can just as easily be a den. “We show purchasers how you could have a multifunctional space,” says designer Tania Richardson. Yet the suite’s soft grey palette, featuring dramatic touches in unexpected places, feels anything but utilitarian. “It’s luxurious, it’s timeless,” explains the principal partner with Tomas Pearce Interior Design Consulting. “There’s a serene element to it.” Suites at the Phantom Developments site range from 465 to 1,450 sq. ft. and start at $225,000. The sales office opens May 5 and is located at 2175 Lake Shore Blvd. W., Etobicoke. Hours will be Monday to Thursday from noon to 6 p.m. and weekends from noon to 5 p.m. For more information, call 416-251-0707 or visit Jade Waterfront Condos.
