my best DIY round up

I thought I would bump up some of my older DIY posts...I figured why not start with this one that cost very little but that has such a great result...How to build a fridge enclosure...

How I paint cabinets....

For a durable easy to do water based cabinet paint tutorial...follow the links below

How to build a pine counter...I wanted a wood counter but after the dream kitchen reno's I needed to save money so I figured out how to make a solid pine counter for much less than a butcher block here for that how to

My best and most ambitious how to has to be the coffered ceiling

How to make a dutch door from a standard hollow door 

I really am passionate about DIY...I really like to try new things and challenge myself...and add new and origional touches to my homes....I think everyone can DIY from small craft projects to ambitious DIY projects... I think if you have decent tool skills and a good eye and love to work with your hands DIY is something to give a try..and if you don't know to build but you want to give it a try and give yourself permission to learn and to even make mistakes...mistakes are part of the learning process...if its your house give yourself the permission to try something new.
