Bed Headboard

Posted by Dave Eddy on 07 Nov 2016 - tags: diy

I decided to make a headboard to accompany the Bed Frame I built earlier this year.

Instead of worrying about how to connect it to my bed frame I sort of cheated, and just framed it up and mounted it to the wall like a hanging picture.

DIY Sliding Barn Bedroom and Bathroom Doors

Posted by Dave Eddy on 06 Nov 2016 - tags: diy

After seeing how much I liked the DIY Closet Barn Doors that I made, I decided to make new doors for my bedroom and upstairs bathroom.

I had already purchased some hardware (that I used for the bathroom door) from Lowe's about a year ago, so I ended up by what new pieces I would need to finish the bedroom and bathroom doors from Amazon

Upright Piano Repair

Posted by Dave Eddy on 02 Nov 2016 - tags: diy

I found this piano on Craigslist for free, as the owner was moving from NY to Florida. I hired piano movers to transport it to my house, and from there I ventured onto trying to fix it myself. Most of the keys were chipped and needed to be re-topped, and about 5 of the keys did nothing when pressed (didn't play).

I managed to fix most of the issues, but there is still some weirdness with the piano where I will need to hire a professional to come fix it fully.

All of the parts I ordered were from Howard Piano Industries

Motion Sensor Bed LED Lights

Posted by Dave Eddy on 01 Nov 2016 - tags: diy

I added LED strips to the Bed Frame I built earlier this year activated by a motion sensor. This way, when I walk into my room or get out of bed when it is dark, these will light up and provide a nice ambient glow that will make it easier to see.

The 2 led strips on either side of the bed connect to the USB wall charger adapter, which connects to the motion sensor. Whenever motion is detected, the strips turn on for ~30 seconds providing a nice low light.

Matching Nightstands

Posted by Dave Eddy on 29 Oct 2016 - tags: diy

It's only been a year since I built my first nightstand, but in that time I've learned a lot that could be translated over into building newer, fancier nightstands for my bedroom.

I still love my light-up nightstand - it will just have a new place in my house.

Pine Window Trim

Posted by Dave Eddy on 09 Oct 2016 - tags: diy

I removed white painted trim around my bedroom window and replaced it with dark stained wood trim. I took the white trim out to my garage and cut wood pieces to match the sizes almost exactly (I increased the size of the ledge).
