DIY Stencil Wall Art

We changed a wall space in our home using the Moroccan Tile Stencil from DecoArt. These washable and reusable 18" x 18" stencils are a fun way to add colour to any surface from walls to rugs and furniture. The stencils are available in different sizes, so we can use it on different surfaces for both small and large projects.

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.

BigSteelBox A Solution for Storage During Renovations and Moving

bigsteelbox storage solution
In the past few years, we've done a number of different renovations around the home and most recently renovated our basement, bathroom and kitchen. When undertaking these big scale home renovation projects, it can become quite stressful when living in the same space. Clearing the space helps, but finding additional space to store the items can be difficult. We also found everything in the home gets covered with fine dust, which means we need to constantly clean up; so, having lots of things around doesn’t make it easy. In our experience, we felt when the space is not cleared the furniture and belongings get in the way and become a hassle, and it is hard to envision the full potential of the space.

The 3-Step Werner Project Step Stool is Handy for DIY projects

The 3-Step Type II Project Ladder Step Stool available to purchase at Lowe's is ideal for any task in our home, kitchen or garage. We find the utility tray on this ladder to be useful for our painting and DIY projects as it can hold paint cans and tools that we need. We like having the option of either being able to keep the tray attached or removed depending on our need.

Enhancing the Curb Appeal with this #DIY Driveway Project using Rust-Oleum EpoxyShield

Rust-Oleum EpoxyShield driveway
We feel the driveway is one of the most important part of a property, as it adds to the curb appeal. It is also the most used space in a home, and wears out the fastest because it is exposed to the sun, rain, snow, and dirt, as well as vehicle oils. In the past, to keep our driveway looking clean, fresh, bright, and dark we have used asphalt driveway sealers, and also professional driveway sealing services. However, these looks have not lasted more than a few days before the driveway has gone back to look like its old self.

Our Garage transformation using Rust-oleum Epoxy Shield #DIY

Rust-oleum Epoxy Shield garage flooring
We have a detached garage, which we haven't made use of much other than storing belongings. Last summer, we realized the value of having an extended separate space especially as our interests and hobbies have grown. Due to our love for DIY projects, woodworking, gardening, and crafts, we decided to change our garage space to fully utilize and accommodate these interests.

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.

Completed Bathroom Renovation #BathroomReno

bathroom renovation
We have been busy taking on a DIY bathroom project, which has been long, but fun and satisfying. We wanted our bathroom to be functional and fit for everyone in the family, so when we designed it we had a universal design in mind. This allowed us to make the space functional and safe without compromising style and character.

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.

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.

The Keyless Future with Schlage

Schlage keyless deadbolt
The hassle of losing or forgetting house keys or any set of keys can be very cumbersome and nerve wracking. Imagine a life without keys? I think with our busy active lifestyles it is sometimes best not to worry about the simple things such as house keys. This keyless future is currently sitting on my front door! We installed a Schlage Touch Keyless Touchscreen Deadbolt recently and have been surprised and happy about how stylish, easy, practical, and functional it is.

Our Cabinet Transformation Using Rust-Oleum

kitchen renovation
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.
