When the business was first acquired by our grandparents they sold farm equipment, hardware, and had a repair shop. In 1981, our mother purchased the hardware store from her siblings and changed the name to Country Hardware. We were an Our Own Hardware until 1999 when Do It Best acquired them. With this change came a remodel to the design of the store.

Chimneys should be safety features that help funnel sparks, fumes, and smoke out of the home. Yet, they can become the very cause of a dangerous house fire when left neglected for too long. Here’s how to know when to clean a chimney and how to do it yourself.
Chips, scratches, stains, and dullness can all leave the fixture looking less than its best.

The new finish will look good and should last for a few years with regular use and careful cleaning.
Chipping, peeling paint may be desirable in small doses for the shabby chic look. But when it’s occurring on a wall rather than in a controlled way on a decorative item, it’s a problem rather than a decorative touch. Solve any underlying issues with the ceiling or walls before attempting to patch small areas of paint. Entire walls of chipping and peeling indicate a need for painting the whole room or even the whole home.
