Ideas for framing out recessed shelves?

I have this hole in the wall of my 1/2 bath where I removed a poorly placed medicine cabinet, and I'd like to replace it with a built-in shelf or niche (not sure what the difference is?). It's already framed by studs on either side, but the top and the bottom have a 2" gap between the wood and the wall. Not sure what's the best/easiest way to close it up and finish everything off. I'd like to keep as much of the existing space as possible. Ideas?

How do I remove glue from wood trim?

We pulled up the carpet and the nail strips. I think the nail strips were glued down and I haven’t been able to get that strip mark by the trim off the floor. My husband doesn’t want to redo the hardwood floors so my only option is to try to get the glue/marks off the hard wood. I read to try WD40 and that didnt work. We are going to paint the trim so I’m not worried abt the different colored part on that. Please help! I try to be a DIY but am not very handy!

How do I remove a stuck PVC hose?

I'm trying to winterize my hot tub and I'm down to the last step and can't get the hoses off to drain and blow out any remaining water. I loosened the clamps and moved them away. And the manual says to twist back and forth while pulling...but that's not working for me! Maybe I'm not strong enough! I hope I don't have to hire someone to do this last step. Grrr

Tufted Headboard Slip Cover

I love my traditional wooden headboard and wanted to keep it. I also wanted to lighten my bedroom. I decided to make a slip cover for the headboard so that I could go back to my wood look when ever I'd like to. So I got busy using two full sized foam mattress pads, 3 yards of fabric, a button making kit, upholsters needle and a little math...I was able to pull it off (literally, get it? slip cover? pull it off? ha ha) turn out really nicely.

make your own soap then use it to make all your household cleansers

Make Your Own Soap, Then Use It To Make All Your Household Cleansers

When our youngest son was a baby, he had skin issues and we had to buy specific soaps, lotions & detergents that no one else in our family used. I finally decided to try my hand at making these things myself & had no idea how easy & inexpensive it would be.That was 8 years ago & now there’s no going back. The 1 thing that I hadn't done yet was make our soap.I just tried it for the 1st time this spring. I used a crock pot recipe that I found at DIY Natural. It really is the best way to get started making soap because it's so easy - there's no weighing or checking temperatures.The only reason I rated this as a medium project is because of the sodium hydroxide (lye). You DO have to be careful working with chemicals.This method took all the pressure away. You can see the original post at DIY Natural but I'll tell you what I used & you can watch the video below to see the process with full instructions below.
