Indoor Wood Railing with Metal Balusters

Posted by Dave Eddy on 09 Jun 2017 - tags: diy

When I moved into my house, the closest thing to a railing it had was a folded piece of cardboard that just stood by the stairs. My Mom always complained to me that I needed a railing, and that someone could seriously hurt themselves... it just took me a couple years to do anything about that warning :p.

I decided to build a railing myself with a dark stained wood and black metal balusters.

I moved the Mug Rack I built recently which freed up some wall space. I decided to build a CD rack to hang on the wall so I could have a place to display my collection instead of hiding them in a closet.

My sister Jaime broke the glass to one of her favorite tables. I took the legs home, gave them a new look with some Burnished Amber spray paint, and created a brand new wood top with some pine scraps I had lying around stained with a coat of Provincial pine stain from Minwax.

I bought a patio set of furniture from Ikea when I was living in California around 2011/2012. I was using it up until last year as a desk for my iMac that I replaced with a DIY Computer Desk. My mom gave me the idea to make a wood top for it and turn it into a dining room table - so I did!

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.

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
