The Dewalt DCP580B 20V Max Brushless Planer #DIY tool

Dewalt Max Brushless Planer
We do a lot of DIY projects using wood and have a decent collection of tools to get the job done. The latest addition to our tools is the Dewalt DCP580B 20V Max Brushless planer. A planer is a really useful tool to have, as it has lots of varying uses. The DEWALT DCP580B 20V Max Brushless planer we are using is the cordless version, and it comes as a bare tool without any batteries. Since, most of our power tools are Dewalt we already have batteries to go with them. It is always best to use 3 Ah batteries or greater, so there is enough power to get the job done.

Improving Curb Appeal with Renfrew Blue Fusion

Renfrew Blue Fusion paint door
We have a four panel steel door for our main entrance. Although it was already primed when we purchased it, it had never been painted over. Since the door was off colour and looked dull we decided to give it a fresh coat of paint. We decided on using the beautiful green-blue shade of Renfrew Blue Fusion paint for the outer part of our front door to enhance the curb appeal.

Building our own rolling DIY Door and Organizing with Rev-a-shelf

building a rolling barn door DIY
We love the concept of barn doors, rolling door, and pocket doors because they are neat and trendy! We were so excited that we were able to include a sliding door in our #BathroomReno project. We had a closet outside the washroom, where we keep our linen. To access this closet we needed to come out of the washroom, which was not convenient. When we were planning our renovation, we decided to bring the closet inside the bathroom, which would allow us to have more space and use it functionally.

Adding Style and Sophistication with Delta Dryden #BathroomReno

delta dryden collection
For our recent bathroom renovation project, we used Delta products because of our positive past experience with their bathroom and kitchen products. I like the spectrum of finishes and styles Delta has. I think the choice of what finish and style we choose to add, changes the feel of our space.

Building a Custom Vanity #BathroomReno DIY

DIY custom vanity
In our #BathroomReno we decided to build our own custom vanity to fit our need and space. Instead of spending money for a ready-made vanity that restricts what we want in our vanity, our decision to build one allowed us to add a variety of features we wanted.

Adding a Splash of Colour and Getting Organized

We added Fusion paint to a few things around our home to add a splash of colour and used Washi tape in functional ways in our home to keep us organized.

Organizing using Chalkboard Tape

chalkboard tape
I enjoyed using removable chalkboard tape and organizing. This is an easy and practical way to organize anything we want. I usually use this drawer to put different things, so I like having this removable chalkboard tape on the drawers. This allows me to write what is inside the drawers, erase and rewrite when I change the content.

Automate Your Home with WeMo

I have heard about the terms "Internet of Things" and Home Automation, but never expected to try them out myself so soon. What if all the gadgets in your home can connect to the Internet and be controlled by you with the help of your smartphone or tablet? Sounds a bit scary but with the popularity of the Internet, smartphones, and in home Wi-Fi the future is headed in that direction. I have been wanting to find out how home automation can benefit us with the simple things that we use day-to-day and improve our lifestyle.

Using Washi Tape as Frames

We recently painted our children's room, and to personalize the space we wanted to display art work that my children did on the wall. I used Washi tape to frame around the canvas. This way we can remove and switch the painting as we want and update the wall display without a hassle.

Our Cabinet Transformation Using Rust-Oleum

After transforming the cabinets with Rust-Oleum
We have used Rust-Oleum about three years ago to transform our front porch, and love the results. Due to our trust in their products my husband and I undertook a DIY project during the holidays using the Rust-Oleum Cabinet Transformation kit. Using this kit to transform the kitchen cupboards to our preferred colour is less costly compared to changing the entire cupboards or doing messy demolitions.

This Roll and Stow Will Help Us With All Our Painting Projects

roll and stow painting
Painting is one of the top do-it-yourself projects in Canada because it is inexpensive to do it ourselves. Taking on this project is fairly easy, and fun. I feel every time we do our own painting it also gives us a sense of accomplishment when the project is complete. However, every paint project comes with challenges including paint spills, the inconvenience of temporarily packing up paint supplies when we cannot finish a project in a single day and keeping paint tools organized and neat in a single storage place between paint jobs. This new Canadian made Roll and Stow solves all these problems.

Our Completed DIY Modern, Eco-Friendly #BathroomReno

bathroom renovation
We started a #BathroomReno project in the beginning of November, as a weekend and some days in the evening type of project. Having one full washroom and a powder room in our home is not convenient for a growing family like us, so instead of moving to a bigger home we wanted to upgrade ours to accommodate all the family members.

Delta Accessories to Spark Up Our Bathroom

delta lahara accessories
Every bathroom to be comfortable and complete needs useful, strong accessories. We used the Lahara collection Delta accessories to spark up our #BathroomReno. Adding themed accessories gives a unique, and useful touch to our bathroom. We installed the Lahara toilet paper holder, towel ring, 24" towel bar and robe hook, which gives a wonderful accent to the entire bathroom.

Elegance and Convenience in Our Shower Stall

There are lots of benefits in having a hand shower in the shower stall. I like using the hand shower since it gives us the freedom of movement. It is convenient for everyone in the family with different heights to use. Having a hand shower in a home with children, seniors and pets is helpful. I find using the hand shower to clean the shower stall surface, allows us to easily remove soap residue and grime. Using the handheld shower also helps conserve water.

Adding Lahara Touch2O Technology Faucet To Our Bathroom

You may already know about our DIY #BathroomReno project, we started a couple of months ago. I am glad our hard work during some evenings and weekends are paying off and the project is coming together to reflect our vision. With so many options available in today's market, my husband and I planned to invest and make our bathroom modern and eco-friendly.

Planning Our #BathroomReno DIY Project

home depot bathroom renovation
As our family grows and children are becoming bigger, it is easier for us to do upgrades and renovations to fit the needs and comfort of our growing families rather than moving. During fall many of you like us, plan on doing indoor renovations and look for helpful information. Doing the renovations ourself is lots of fun, as it gives us the comfort of using any product we like and saves us a lot of money.

What We Do In Our Garden During Fall

The gardening season is almost coming to an end for this year... so I find spending a little bit of time each day will help us get ready to clean up and prep things for the next gardening season. Here are some of the things my husband and I do in our garden during fall.
