  •   For making the bevel in your wood edge strips, the best tool isa compound sliding miter saw. This is an electric saw whichpivots from side to side to create the miter cut, as well aspivoting left to right to create the bevel. If you don't ownone, you can rent one, or alternately, have the store where youbought the wood size and bevel it for you. Be sure to do a fewpractice cuts on some scrap wood if you have not previously usedone of these saws.

  •   When shopping for supplies for this project, make sure your newedge wood matches the wood in other features of the room, suchas cabinets, if they are unpainted. If most of the kitchen is orwill be painted, bring a paint chip and make sure the color ofthe wood is one that will be harmonious with the room as a whole.

  •   Carpeting

      If the basement has not yet been finished, it most likely has aconcrete floor. Concrete flooring has a tendency to be cold onthe feet in the morning. To avoid this uncomfortablepossibility, carpeting should be your final step in creatingyour fantastic basement bedroom ideas.

      Carpet squares are a great choice for completing your basementbedroom ideas because they are easy to install and come completewith padding and a moisture barrier. To properly install carpetsquares, you need to first measure the area carefully. You wantto determine the layout of the carpet panels ahead of time soyou avoid having small slivers of carpeting at the ends of theroom. To cut carpet panels to size, use a utility knife and cutthrough all layers of the square. Be sure to butt the panelsclose to each other and prevent fibers from getting trappedbetween squares. When finished, vacuum the floor to help removethe lines between carpet panels and, voila!, your basementbedroom is finished.

  •   After you have completed these first steps of your concrete pondconstruction project, you need to let the cement cure forseveral days under plastic. Treating with muriatic acid at thisstage helps prevent high pH levels in water later, whichbenefits fish and plants. After the acid treatment, applyseveral coats of paint made for pools or masonry sealant,allowing each coat to dry thoroughly.

  •   For digging out the area for concrete pond construction, youwill need shovels, picks, a crowbar, and, of course, awheelbarrow. Some other necessary items include a carpenter'slevel, string, stakes, sheets of plastic, and a long two-by-four.

      Pouring the cement in concrete pond construction should be donein one day, unless the pond is very large, and then it must bepoured in sections. Pour cement in the bottom of the pool first,then the sides. If shelves have been dug out, pour cement there,next. Finally, pour cement for the top of the pond and for anycoping that may be involved.

  •   Make sure the wall is completely dry before you go on to the next step. Next, spread the adhesive on the wall using an applicator. Follow the manufacturer抯 instructions. Finally, start laying down the tile. Start at the center of the design and work outward. Let the adhesive dry and then apply grout. Follow the mixing and application directions provided by the company that made the grout.

  •   Install the ceramic tile backsplash. After making all the preparations you are finally ready to install the ceramic tile backsplash. First, you抣l want to turn the electricity off for any outlets that you are working near. If you accidentally put a tool into the sockets you could get electrocuted. Then, wash the wall thoroughly with soap and warm water.
