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

04-22-2015 06:20 PM by Katies_DIY_Blog | 5 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.

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.

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 | 6 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...
