Last year, I put up a Tongue and Groove Ceiling in my Bedroom. I liked it so much I decided to do the rest of my upstairs (referred to collectively as the "Living Room"). The process was almost identical, the only difference being that I had to do a lot more ceiling than I had previously done.
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.
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.
Right before I moved, I broke the glass to what I thought was my favorite table. It was gold with a glass top. I was going to throw the base away but my brother took it home. I forgot about it, he brought it back like this to me today. NOW it is my favorite table! He got the bark deer head too. Thanks @bahamas10 !!! #hermano #deerhead #woodwork #handmade #table
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!
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
- SMARTSTANDARD 8 FT Sliding Barn Door Hardware (Black) (I Shape Hangers)
- SMARTSTANDARD Sliding Barn Door Hardware Hangers 2pcs (Black) (J Shape Hangers)
- Iron Valley - 9" Square Door Pull Handle - Solid Cast Iron
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
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.
- Le Zoey® 200CM 120leds USB 5V 5050 RGB LED Flexible Strip Light Kit
- AUKEY USB Wall Charger with Foldable Plug
- Westek MLC12BC-4 Indoor Plug-In Corded Motion Activated Light Control
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.
