Organize Pantry Items with Ikea Jars and Chalk Paint Markers

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. But we have THREE containers of cocoa!!! THREE! This is madness. And something must be done...

Changing Table Plans

Due to lack of space in the nursery, I designed my daughter's changing table to be a jack of all trades. 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...

So a desk, DIY chalk paint and a $15 stool walk into a bar…

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...

Let’s talk about the Master Bedroom

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...

Peel and Stick Faux Wood Vinyl Flooring

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...

Compact Space Saving Desk Plans

Lately I've been digging into past projects on HNYDT to see how far I've come or...uh...regressed. One of my favorite projects to date was this compact space saving desk, inspired by a pottery barn desk that's been discontinued. I look at that desk and say yeah, I got that right. You're the man. But when I look at the...

DIY Platform Bed Plans

It's been almost three years exactly since I originally built my DIY platform bed, and it's become VERY popular. Almost as popular as you! No, you're right. It's not that popular. Anyway, I figured I would update the build with what I've learned over the years while also providing images based on my own SketchUp plans. I hope the...

How to Make an Easy No-Sew Window Seat Cushion

There's a time in every man's life where he needs to make an easy no-sew window seat cushion. It's pretty much a right of passage. Everyone knows this. Don't look at me that way! This was my time. I've been training. And so because of that training my body is ready. Because I trained. First and foremost, I took measurements of...
