DIY that adds Value to your Property #1: DIY adds more value you think

04-22-2015 06:20 PM by Katies_DIY_Blog | 36 comments »

I’m relatively new to this whole blogging thing so please bear with me if this article isn’t quite up to Shakespearean standard just yet! This is my first blog post so I thought I’d make it about something that’s been interesting me as of late. Firstly, my main job is a real estate agent. So I guess you can say my main job is slightly boring! However, the last 3-4 years of so I’ve actually started taking up small DIY jobs in and around the house. My boyfriend has never been very good with thi...

Plumbers are expensive gaskets are cheap

09-15-2014 12:36 AM by BenhamDesign | 28 comments »

I discovered my backflow prevention valve was leaking, and as time went on it just got worse. My wife’s first thought was to call a plumber. My 1st thought was wow that’s going to be an expensive gasket, so I set out looking for a replacement part, with not a whole lot of luck. You can read my blog to see how I fixed my back flow prevention valve without having to order and expensive part or call a plumber. Fixing a back flow prevention valve.

Tips for Designing and Finding Inspiration

09-14-2013 05:56 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 33 comments »

With the release of my latest article in WOOD magazine on design, it prompted more requests for a video on designing and how I find inspiration. In this video I share the lifestyle habits I have that allow me to keep finding inspiration, recording those ideas, and developing the designs. For an example, I share how I turned a Japanese torii gate into a stairwell barrier, bucking the standard design of newell posts, balusters, and handrail. While the subject of designing can get pretty d...

Melamine Part 2: Apply Edge Banding

01-30-2013 04:52 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 39 comments »

I just finished up the video for applying edge banding to melamine. This video follows Part 1 on how to get clean cuts in melamine, which can be quite a challenge without the right blade and techniques. Once the melamine is cut, often it will need to have edge banding applied. So I cover this topic in Part 2. I could have made a 2 minute video that shows me applying a piece with an iron and trimming the excess, but that can leave a person with a lot of questions. In these videos, you no...

11-02-2012 04:28 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 7 comments »

Hey Refurbers, Sorry for skipping ahead but I have long since upholstered the couch I was stripping in the other post. I didn’t have a camera crew available (my 11 year old daughter) and I needed both hands for the work. You knew There was some sewing invloved in upholstery. I figured we could start with a throw pillow. In my case, they are back cushions to that couch I upholstered. My daughter and I tried to film this series as best as we could on the I-Phone. You may have to ...
