Fresh Ideas: Finish with Wagner

Nobody loves DIY projects more than me. They offer plenty of creative outlet and (if successful) add to the overall look of your home. With some well-thought ideas, you have complete control of the design of your space.

The easiest way to transform any project or room is paint. It is relatively inexpensive and easy to change if you are dissatisfied. And with the right tools for the job, painting doesn't have to be a chore. 

I recently teamed up with Wagner for their eBook, Finish. It is loaded with DIY projects that are fun and simple. Click here or the photo above to get your free copy. With summer just around the corner, now is a good time to consider those patio projects. Below you will find an excerpt from the eBook detailing my take on a modern Adirondack chair.

TN at HGTV: Spring Projects

Spring is in the air. It’s time to get out and start working the outdoor common areas for the months of entertaining and relaxing ahead. To help you on your mission, I have 4 new projects over at HGTV.
The obelisk is perfect for your garden as a support for growing tall plants or just as decor. Truth be told, I’ve moved mine indoors and incorporated it into my living room, if only temporarily. The entire project was under $20 (I already had the paint) and only took a few hours to complete, including drying time.
Use the repurposed dresser porch decor as inspiration. With enough space, you can use any old dresser or piece of furniture (I like ones with drawers) to dress up your entry.
The galvanized plant stand is industrial and fun. Apart from cleaning the pipes, there is very little work involved. The finished product will add unexpected personality to any space.
Lastly, make this fresh mint chocolate shake. You won’t believe the difference it makes when you use fresh ingredients.
