Part two of my DIY scrap wood workbench build. It's a little longer than I would have liked, but I tried not to cut out a bunch of steps. Oh, and my circular saw sounded hilarious when editing...but not so much after the final export...LOL!
Material purchase, cut list and step-by-step Sketchup plans on the way!
It's been three years since I built my original platform bed frame and like...seven years since I've had a new mattress. And I think we may be due for one soon. Yeah. So I decided to design plans for what I'm calling my classic queen size platform bed. It's a bed frame. It's classy. And it's classic. Mostly because I said so. Just now. [...]
Back in late December I wrote about my experience ditching DirecTV and cutting the cord. It's a fun story about me getting PLAYED and then overcoming obstacles and eventually becoming the batman. You should read about it sometime. Unsurprisingly, since becoming the batman things have changed...for the BETTER! There are more options than ever: HBO has officially gone a la [...]
How naive of me to think that I would make it through life without painting some wall in my house pink. As you know, I have been blessed with two girls (and suspect I will surely get a third, whenever it is that we decide to increase our odds of having a familial care-taker when we're old, cranky and perhaps [...]
I'm not going to lie to you. It's a mess in our baking/spice cabinet. We have all of this stuff in different wares of tupper and unusually sized containers and it's been driving me nuts for quite a while. First world problem, I know.

The design offers concealed storage space, cubby/bin storage space, a bookcase and of course enough room on top to accommodate a changing pad and supplies. I also had 2x6 FEVER from my platform bed build so it's built like a [...]
If you've read my posts about DIY chalk paint, you know I'm a fan. Not a fair-weather fan, either. I show up. I've taken out a second mortgage on my home for season tickets. I'm the real deal. But like most mediums, be it oil painting or chalk paint, it takes time to learn the ropes and get that medium [...]
I drove 45 minutes to the Seattle Ikea for a modern Swedish cinnamon bun. But before I could make it to the Bistro I blacked out! The next thing I know I'm stuffing my car's trunk full of the following: (3) Over-sized picture frames, (2) Wall lamps, (1) Desk lamp, (1) Cool little clock and a couple packs of gold furniture [...]
I sold Swole City. It's true. But the seeds of my home gym tranquilly floated into my laundry room and gave yield to new flooring, a fancy light fixture, cabinets and a bench/storage unit. And some new running shoes! So I'm the guy who hates vinyl floor and linoleum. Specifically the faux hardwood type. But I'm also the guy who [...]
