The Cutest Classic Salt Tub

As I used to be penning this publish, I remembered that my dad actually simply completed a VERY cool DIY undertaking and actually wished to share. He didn’t say it however I may inform he was excited that he was going to be featured:) So right here is his new, completely DIY’ed Salt Tub and Bathe:

Bathe Fixture | Photo voltaic Pendant Gentle

“So my neighbor was eliminating her clawfoot tub. I  thought it’d make a pleasant outside tub at my place so I purchased it from her ($200 a steal). I figured a great place was throughout from my visitor quarters within the yard (which I simply completed) as a result of I had entry to cold and hot water. My girlfriend likes to take salt baths so I figured it might be used a lot. I believed I may simply drain it with a backyard hose however as destiny would have it I used to be very near my sewer line. After a little bit digging, there she was. What luck. I’ve by no means tapped right into a sewer line earlier than. After I did I used to be promptly made conscious of the definition of the time period “fecal gravity”, yikes! I might recommend hiring a plumber for that explicit chore if you wish to connect with your sewer line. It was not nice and as soon as you narrow into it you might be on the level of no return. I’ll prevent (and me) the graphic particulars of that day. (I’m endlessly scarred). Anyway, as you may see all is nicely that ends nicely. I raised it off the bottom on an enormous piece of lumber I’ve been lugging round endlessly. It provides it character. The teak ground mat warms it up a little bit. I additionally made a floating shelf out of a bit of alder wooden I had laying round. I’m fairly happy with the end result. It took me about three days to full. The most costly half was the cedar enclosure. The value of lumber has skyrocketed. I used to be shocked. What would have price $500 final 12 months was $1000. Yikes, once more. That’s life I suppose however painful. Now for a sizzling outside tub. Woo hoo!”

To get a little bit extra technical, the edges had been made like containers to be each fairly and conceal the plumbing on the bathe aspect (he made certain to make a little bit lure door so he may get to the plumbing. Then for the roof, he used clear corrugated plastic that’s being supported by his cool picket geometric design. Additionally, the remainder of the ornamental items had been all picked out by his girlfriend. I believe it turned out so nice and I’m so happy with him! (P.S. I by no means knew about his sewage concern… YIKES is true and main palm to face, dad)

Okay, now prepare for some actual DIY magic…

A Completely Basic “Marble” Patio Flooring

Nope, that’s NOT actual marble on Fariha Nasir’s patio!

This very gifted DIYer handpainted this fake marbled flooring and I believe it appears so superior. Giant scale diamond flooring are by no means “out” as they’re utterly traditional, however they certain are “IN” this 12 months and it’s all about them being painted.

Should you go to this spotlight on her Instagram, she walks you thru the primary steps:

  1. Hire a stress washer
  2. Use a concrete primer
  3. Paint with exterior paint (Aged Beige from Behr)
  4. Stencil sample
  5. Paint diamond sample with Binary Star from Behr (additionally exterior paint)
  6. Marble it up!
  7. End by sealing the paint with polycrylic.

I requested Fahira if she may give us all tips about how she received her superior marbled look and he or she delivered:

1. To get the marbling impact you have to to combine a number of totally different shades of the paint colours you’re working with. The primary two shades would be the paint straight out of the can (the bottom colours of the checkered tiles). To your third shade (darkish 2), combine 1 a part of the sunshine coloration with 2 elements of the darkish. To your fourth shade (mild 2), combine 1 a part of the darkish with 2 elements of the sunshine coloration. Now you have got 4 totally different shades to work with. 

2. Use a pure sponge and dip into your Darkish 2, wipe off extra, and dab onto the darkish tile, entering into a 45-degree angle throughout the tile to imitate the pure veining of marble. Make certain to not cowl the whole tile with this coloration however depart some areas empty. 

3. Come again in with the darkish tone straight out of the can and mix within the edges so the sides aren’t outlined.
 
4. Use a skinny paintbrush to take some mild 2 and with a light-weight hand draw veins entering into the identical path as earlier than. Use a reference picture of an precise marble tile for reference. One other tip is to make use of a turkey feather for the veining half – it makes very pure strains

5. Soften edges if wanted with the bottom coloration and repeat the method for the opposite tiles. Keep in mind to make use of the lighter tones for the sunshine tile and the darker ones for the darkish ones. 

6. To create some highlights or lighter areas at nighttime tiles you need to use a tiny little bit of the sunshine paint to create some distinction. 

Thanks, Fahira! She additionally has a marbling spotlight too in case you are a visible learner:) O and take a look at the remainder of her yard right here!

A Beautiful (Person-Pleasant) Pergola

Enjoyable truth, we even have already showcased Avery’s handwork within the DIY kitchen publish the place she remodeled her kitchen for $250. However when she heard about our DIY outside house callout, she emailed us this room and it was too good to go up. We play by our personal guidelines and definitions right here. This superior transformation took six weeks and price $650 (minus the rug and curtain dye). She first painted the house with Sherwin Williams’ Additional White, the accent wall with Aubusson Blue from Annie Sloan and the flooring with grey epoxy paint. She then, with the assistance of her brother-in-law, constructed a mattress swing, remodeled free tree stumps into espresso tables, after which made customized olive drapes by dying fundamental white IKEA curtains. For the remainder of the items, she both owned them or thrifted.

It appears superior and if you would like extra information go right here and for the swing DIY go right here.

So over 2.5 years, their yard went from falling aside to wanting model new. The very first thing they did was tear down the previous fence. As an alternative of rebuilding it, they repurposed among the pavers from the bottom and created a small retaining wall (wanted because of the sloping of their yard). They then dug out the entire grass and constructed these nice backyard beds and added pea-sized stone throughout. The final DIY was that superior cedar walkway. Since the remainder of the yard had gotten a facelift, they determined to say goodbye to the cement walkway as a result of it seemed misplaced. It was undoubtedly the correct name and the entire house appears incredible. Like I mentioned earlier than, this undertaking took them about 2.5 years and a tough whole of $2,700.

Cathy and her husband wanted stairs of their yard and boy did they end up nice. Right here’s how they did it and a few normal recommendation for all of you (additionally listed below are visible directions on Cathy’s Instagram):

“We made 9 primarily based on the steepness of our slope. Every undertaking can be totally different primarily based on the slope. So the diy-er would want to calculate the rise and run of the steps. To find out the variety of steps, measure the entire top in inches from floor degree to higher degree divided by 6 (the peak of every step). This gives you the variety of steps you want. Then measure the complete size of the steps (in inches) by the variety of steps. This gives you the run of every step (tread width).

For our undertaking, we made 9 steps and the tread width was 15.5” (if tread width is longer, then make aspect items longer than 18”).

Every step is mainly a U-shape. To make a step, we used a round noticed to chop the 8’ lengthy stress handled lumber into 18” and 24” items. Our steps had been 24” huge and we used 18” items for the edges.

We pre-drilled holes for the 8″ lag screws that may connect the entrance board to the edges. We drilled the holes 2.25” in from the sides. And since we wished the bolts flush with the wooden (wouldn’t need to kick a bolt with a naked toe in flip flop), we used a countersink bit after predrilling. Use a ratchet wrench to tighten the 8” lag bolts. (This half generally is a little tough as a result of it’s worthwhile to safe the wooden items when drilling and tightening the bolts. We ultimately propped up every step and I sat on it like a sawhorse whereas my husband tightened the bolts, haha.)

As a result of step one is secured to the bottom with rebar, you’ll additionally must drill two holes behind step one. After drilling the 2 holes, spray any freshly minimize sides with wooden preservative and let dry (takes a couple of minutes).

Place step one the place you need it and examine to see if it’s degree. You then’re going to hammer the rebar by step one into the bottom for stability. As soon as the rebar is flush with the board, double-check the step is degree and fill the step with grime about midway. Then proceed with making the second step.

Earlier than securing steps on prime of each other, spray any freshly minimize sides with wooden preservative. As soon as dry, place the second assembled step onto step one, ensuring that the steps are degree. Use a measuring tape to put it on the applicable tread width. Once more, ours was 15.5”. Mark two holes on the prime 1.5” from sides. Predrill the holes going by each the second and first step. Use a countersink bit once more after which use a ratcheting socket wrench to tighten the ten” lag bolts. Fill the step with grime half-way and repeat for the remainder of the steps. 

After all of the steps have been constructed, fill with pea gravel. 

Supplies Record:
– 6 pressure-treated lumber, 4” x 6” x 8′
– 2 three ft rebar
– 18 eight inch lag screws
– 18 ten inch lag screws
– wooden preservative spray paint (like Copper Inexperienced Brown Wooden Preservative)
– pea gravel

Device Record:

Fundamental Directions:
1. Lower lumber into 18” and 24” items. Every step is comprised of three items. Predrill holes and end holes with a countersink bit.  Safe the entrance board with the edges utilizing 8” lag screws. 
2. Spray any contemporary cuts with wooden preservative and let dry. 
3. Backside step is secured to floor with rebar. Drill two holes within the again. Stage it earlier than and after putting in rebar. 
4. Fill the step midway with grime.
5. Place subsequent step on prime of backside step. Measure the suitable tread width and degree. Safe the steps along with 10” lag bolts (predrill)

Audrey, her husband, and two boys tackled these two superior DIYs. They began by ripping out the grass (which was largely moss). Although it was very fairly, they wished to make the house extra drought-friendly, sustainable and drain higher throughout their Seattle winters. So that they hauled in 24 yards of pea gravel to cowl the realm.

For the firepit, they stacked paver stones round an iron ring, laid iron mountain flagstone on the bottom and set granite boulders to assist create a fireplace pit zone. To make the realm gentle and alluring, they landscaped with ferns, hosta, moss, and flowering groundcover. Now for the pergola, they wished it to be the primary assertion of their yard in order that they selected to make use of 8×8 posts. For the way they put in the posts, she mentioned her husband “raised the posts by himself and I might regular the posts whereas he mounted them to hidden brackets hooked up to cement pillar bases he had dug three toes down into the bottom.” Straightforward proper?

Turf Oasis

“Once we purchased our home a little bit over 5 years in the past, the wooden deck across the pool had been painted white. The concrete across the pool was a beige/virtually peachy coloration with plenty of cracks. I attempted a number of strategies for sanding the deck, however the simplest choice was an angle grinder with a DimaBrush attachment. I then used a multi-tool with a element sander attachment to sand in between the cracks of the deck. To say it was tedious is a large understatement! After every thing was sanded, I crammed the entire cracks within the concrete and used H&C Cool Really feel acrylic deck & walkway coating from Sherwin Williams to color it. For essentially the most half, I rolled it on, however I needed to brush it on alongside the within fringe of the pool and in between the plastic enlargement joints. Subsequent, I changed the damaged and warped deck boards and stained the entire deck with Cabot Australian Timber Oil in Jarrah Brown. The angled a part of the fence that basically bothered me broke throughout a storm this spring (how handy!), so we employed out that job and received that changed. With a purpose to assist the previous & new fences mix in a little bit higher, I stress washed the prevailing fence and stained every thing with Wooden Defender stain in Harvest Brown. Whilst you can clearly inform that a part of the fence is newer (the colour isn’t precisely the identical and it’s horizontal versus vertical), it’s a lot better than if I had left the previous half untouched. Finally, we’ll exchange the opposite two sides, however that simply wasn’t within the funds in the meanwhile.
I ordered turf from an area firm to create a small grassy space and break up the entire wooden. The corporate delivered the turf in a big roll and helped me set it in place. Then I minimize the form utilizing a field knife. Because it was going straight on prime of a wooden deck, I simply used a staple gun to maintain it in place. The turf is certainly one in every of my favourite elements of the entire makeover! It does get very popular within the warmth of the day, however it’s gentle and really life like wanting.”

This was clearly a giant undertaking however man what an unbelievable reward. Right here’s the funds breakdown:
Fence- $2227.12

For the furnishings, she painted the glider navy blue however wished to maintain the circle chairs lighter for visible distinction.
