We recently completed four product videos for the Home Depot. What that means is when you are looking at, for example, the Glacier Bay 1.28 GPF toilet, you'll find our product video giving you more information about it.
In addition to the toilet, we also did product videos for a caulk gun, glass cutter, and HLVP spray gun. We were determined to connect all four of these random products into one cohesive mini bathroom makeover. Here's how we did it!
Here are seven DIY alternatives to the traditional Christmas tree. All can be made with easy to find materials--some with recycled elements, others with standard lumber. Bonus, most are designed for easy and space saving storage when the holidays are over.
We had some very thoughtful and helpful comments posted our video about the resin shed assembly. We though a couple of the comments had merit so we decided to implement them.
Here's what we did to improve the shed based on viewer comments.
The very first piece of vintage furniture that I purchased right out of college was a desk with chair. My first job was in a small north Florida town where I sublet an apartment for two months. My unit was tacked onto the back of a home and featured the smallest bathtub ever. Bonus, it had no shower so I had to connect a handheld sprayer to the tub faucet for a very rough facsimile of an actual shower. Bonus, it also had mice! That gives you a good idea why I was only there two months.
Anyway, the garage apartment was occupied by a lady that moved while I lived in the third apartment. She sold all her furniture and I was given the opportunity to pick from the leftovers. The second apartment tenant made sure he had first dibs on everything. Evidently, he was an antiques collections so he got "all the good" stuff! Not sure what he got, but I was very happy with the desk and a couple of end tables that I purchased.
I used that desk for years until the chair fell apart when I then stored them both in the garage. At one point I did try to refinish it but didn't follow through.
The Builder's Challenge gave me the push I needed to finally repair and refinish the pieces one and for all!
One of the most frequent asked questions about the enclosed fan we installed in Steph's office (and in my sewing room) is "How do you clean the blades?"
Since Steph doesn't really clean, she's more of a tidier, cleaning the blades hasn't seem to be a priority for her! But since the question was asked, she set about to show you how it is done.
