Poverty has limited my imagination, my freedom, and my material life. This naturally includes decoration (decoration is a very burned project, but it is also forced to be helpless.
However, it is not ruled out that some people like DIY fun. For example, today’s blogger @yang (Korean) is a home who likes to do it by himself and share experience. Because you need to do it by yourself, the knowledge sharing published is relatively slow, but each sharing can make people from middle school from middle school Go to practical dry goods.
Today’s sharing is to transform the old bathroom.
The bathroom of the old house, even if it is scrubbing hard every day and strengthening the decontamination, it is still old and dark yellow, and even at first glance, it feels “too dirty”. (PS, the hands were shaking when taking pictures, the photos were blurred, but the general appearance was relatively clear.) Especially the brick seams, the super dirty deodorant is not enough, it is unbearable. After three times before successful),).
The first is directly painted.
The gray neutral paint is directly brushed on the floor tile, which looks much better than the original. However, it didn’t take long for the paint to fall off. One is that the bathroom is more water, and the other is that the chance of stepping on the friction is not as good as the wall.
The second is porcelain.
Since it involves re -paving bricks, it is necessary to prepare some tools. For example: scraper, putty shovel, horizontal meter, gap card, plastic barrel, adhesive, cutting knife, rubber hammer (must not use the hammer, the hammer here is not known).
Because a layer of paint was brushed before, it was necessary to polish it before paving the bricks, and try to grind the paint as much as possible so that the bricks were better laid later. The next step is to clean the ground, wait for the water stains on the ground to dry, keep the ground dry, and then continue the next step.
Of course, this step cannot be opened directly with cement. Whether it is novices or veterans, they will not be paved with cement directly before scratch. This operation is overly confident, and it will turn over 100 %.
Put porcelain pieces one by one on the ground. The square toilet and hexagonal porcelain can not run. In case of incompatible situations, the porcelain sheet cutting corners can be labeled.
For cut porcelain, experienced Xiaobai can try one more step to increase the sense of familiarity. Draw hexagonal bricks on A4 paper first, and try to find the feel on the cutting machine after cutting.
Then perform practical operation on porcelain slices. The size must be repeatedly measured to avoid different sizes, which is wasteful. (Here he wasted nearly half a box of porcelain pieces, and then found a little experience, and he was happy in bitterness)
Pour the cement into the plastic barrel, add water to the paste, pour directly on the floor tiles, scrape the traces with a spatula, and wipe it on the back of the porcelain sheet to increase the bonding area of the ground cement and porcelain sheet.
Note that the direction of paving starts from the farthest corner of the entrance.
Every time a brick is affixed, you need to use a red plastic card to insert it in the gap between the bricks and the brick to keep the brick seam consistent (here is the phenomenon of thermal expansion and contraction of the tiles.
In a sanitary room, there is a low -lying and high slope. With the floor drain as the center and present an uphill to the four weeks, the floor drain can be drained. The slope is compared to test the thickness of the cement and the intensity of the hand.
The white cement around the tile is wiped off the big pieces while sticking it. If there is a small part of it, you can wait until the porcelain slices are dry and then wipe with a half wet towel. After the cement is completely dry, you can consider the beauty sewing.
Do not need a beautiful sewing agent, but white gypsum powder. Use the abandoned card and gypsum powder, and fill it in the gap little by little. After each gap is filled, then a whole shop, that is, the gypsum powder is poured on the tile, and a wipe out from the inside to avoid the filling. The seams can also make the sewing more uniform.
As for the plaster on the surface of the tile, just wipe it with a sponge.
After the completion, a full picture was much better than before.
Don’t be afraid of trouble, don’t do it if you are afraid of trouble. The good -looking and clean home is inseparable from your cognition and hands -on ability.
