Lawn Fertilizer Challenge

Ahhh…Spring. A time to break out the tools. Tools that cut, blow, edge and mow all the things that grow. So, Pete and I are having a little dad-ly challenge. A cultivation contest…a blade bash…fertilizer feud…or a “grass-off” of sorts. To ensure we have stuff to cut, blow and mow, we’re gonna fertilize our lawns … Continue Reading

Fixing Dents and Painting an Exterior Door

Kung fu for my déjà vu. That’s what I wanted to call this post. It’s because I’ve been here before. My front door. Oh, how I’ve fixed your dents and painted you. And then… Skateboard, skateboard, dog, dog, groceries, keys, stroller, surfboard, lumber, lumber, kid, kid, kid, kid, neighbor’s kid and scooter happened. Times 365. … Continue Reading

5- or 6-Day Bathroom Remodel: Part 2 – Paint

In my last post, I took on a bathroom refresh that was intended to be a quick update, maybe a faucet…some paint…and I’m out. But as I peeled the onion, I realized the previous owner of the home did some pretty shoddy work—I saw my one-day refresh turn into a remodel. Stripping wallpaper, patching drywall, … Continue Reading

5- or 6-Day Bathroom Remodel: Part 1

I decided to give my mom a hand and do some work on the bathroom in her (new-to-her) home. Maybe a faucet and a coat of paint. Well, it turned into a remodel. Kind of like my ’56 Ford project that I was going to drive while I fix it up. Now it’s stripped down … Continue Reading

Color for the Colorblind

So much that I do depends on color. Professionally…personally. I choose colors for my clients’ logos, paint for the wall of our living room and when picking out the perfect color to complete that crayon landscape with my little budding artists. I can’t imagine having that limited. The spectrum offers so much opportunity. To make … Continue Reading

Make Your Own Valentine’s Day (or any holiday) Gifts

I know, I know. With a title like this you might be thinking that I’m that unprepared husband that is combing the convenience store on Valentine’s Day morning looking for gift cards and overpriced crappy candy. And they’re out of everything except for microwave burritos and king size payday bars. You know your wife won’t … Continue Reading

Build a DIY Tofu Press

I’m all for saving a few bucks. And anything to get me out in the shop making something. Often, my wife shows me a picture of something and that’s all it takes. I’m on a mission to make it myself. Better. Cheaper. We have the technology. Insert image here of the radar screen, rocket crashing … Continue Reading

DIY 2×4 Shelving for Garage or Basement

I’m in a never-ending battle with basement and garage storage. I hate clutter and stuff lying around on the floor. You know the drill, a place for everything and everything in its place? Yeah, that’s me. But it’s been so hard to get that going in my basement… UNTIL NOW! We moved into this house … Continue Reading
