IKEA Rast hack using wood shims || AMAZING DRESSER

I am so super excited about todays post! I haven't dug in and done a real project in quite awhile (unless painting every room in my house counts!). Finally I dug deep and created a project I am super excited about! Just when you thought you had seen every single Rast hack on planet earth, I have come up with one that I've never seen before! I am smitten with my Rast hack and love it so much I think I'm going to make a 2nd one so I have a pair! Isn't it beautiful?! I started with a basic $34.99 IKEA Rast dresser and transformed it into this grid shim weathered oak beauty. I pulled … [Read more...]

It is amazing how paint can transform a space

The guest bathroom finally got a fresh coat of paint! Here's how it looked when we moved in: And here's how it's looking now! The bathroom still needs a full overhaul, but the green is gone and the room is much more soothing now. Check out this adorable little wall hook! I will never tire of my love for animal heads. I found this "Do Something Awesome" sign and of course had to get it. AWESOME is my favorite word, after all! Before and Afters:       *Paint color is Sherwin Williams Stucco in a satin finish … [Read more...]

How to paint a door – a time lapse DIY tutorial

I feel like I've written about painting doors a thousand different times so I thought it would be way more fun to give you a time lapse play-by-play instead. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed making it! … [Read more...]

TRYING to swap out the refrigerators – easier said than done.

Do you ever start a project thinking it will take you 15 minutes and is a piece of cake, only to have it snowball into an hours-long tortuous undertaking that leaves you questioning why you started the project in the first place? I feel like this pretty much sums up the majority of the projects I take on. "Hey Ben! Will you help me really quick with this small project? It will only take about 15 minutes." Famous last words. Here's our kitchen: This kitchen came with the lovely stainless steel side-by-side fridge you see in the back corner. SWEET! A free fridge with the house! Now … [Read more...]

Removing a set of upper cabinets by myself

We have a set of upper cabinets in our kitchen that are broken and are unusable. We are not currently renovating our kitchen, but I figured I might as well take down the broken cabinets anyway. They will be replaced by some nice floating shelves eventually. I usually just blog step-by-step pictures of me doing crazy stuff like this so I figured I'd mix it up and make a video instead. I hope you enjoy it. Sometimes people wonder how one person can do this type of work by themselves - now you know!

Mounting a TV on brick above a fireplace

Hey everyone! Merry belated Christmas! I hope you had a great holiday. We spent lots of time baking, spending time with friends, prepping for Christmas, snowboarding, and getting stuff done around the house. Speaking of getting stuff done around the house... We finally mounted our TV in the living room. It was quite the hot mess last time you saw it: This is a screen grab from my House Tour video because believe it or not I didn't have a single photo of the tv propped up on a desk in front of our fireplace. I'm guessing it was subconscious avoidance on my part because I never want to … [Read more...]

Replacing the dishwasher

We have officially been living in Colorado for 4 months now! We have made so many friends here and have integrated so well within the community that I feel like we've lived here for years. Also, we've officially been on the mountain snow boarding 8 times so far. We couldn't be happier living in the beautiful state of Colorado. I could be happier about my dishwasher situation though... I'll be honest, I'm not in love with this kitchen. I left an amazing custom kitchen in Texas that I just finished and now am back to a basic kitchen with several broken cabinets and some seriously … [Read more...]
