When the door seal on my fridge decided it had had enough, I shopped around to see what it would cost to replace the refrigerator. What a shock to see how high the prices were for a similar fridge. Rather than have to spend a fortune I decided to look at replacing the seal and giving the fridge a makeover.
I'm busy revamping my fridge to replace the door seal, spray the outside with Rust-Oleum Appliance Epoxy and fixing up cracked and broken plastic door inserts and crisper bins. There is a broken door insert, as well as a couple of cracked salad crisper drawers that need to be repaired. I worked out it would be far cheaper to fix these than replace the entire fridge.
This garden love seat is made using pine slats and marine plywood supports. Once sealed there's no reason why the bench shouldn't last a lifetime with regular care and maintenance.
If you are doing any painting projects this year, here's a great way to recycle plastic paint containers into comfortable stools. I made stools for outdoors, but you can make them for any room and particularly for a child's bedroom or playroom. Pop some comfortable cushions to fit into the top of the plastic containers and you have instant seating. When not in use you can take the cushions indoors. Or spray them with Rust-Oleum Never Wet Fabric Spray.
A couple of years back I bought a wire cupcake stand as a gift for a friend. It appears to be no longer available locally. Wanting a cupcake stand for my own use, I decided to try my hand at making one. So here's how to make your own wire cupcake stand... cheap!
One of my neighbours had their garage door replaced. The workmen were tossing out the old door, which was made of Meranti. I couldn't see all the wood going to waste, so I asked for some of the panels to use for projects and to make a house number plaque.
Here's a way to repurpose aluminium cans into an attractive plant holder to add a touch of greenery to any room in a home. I had some chain that was too large for the project at hand and I didn't know what to do with it. Then I came up with the idea of using aluminum coffee cans, of which I have plenty, to make a hanging plant holder.
