Spooky Porch Made of Cheesecloth 

The Back Story

Here’s a kitchen project you will enjoy outside and inside your house. Almost every kitchen has a window, so why not hang a window box to grow fresh kitchen herbs? You can buy a ready-made box, and you’ll have fresh herbs like rosemary, basil, and sage right at your fingertips. Before you hang your box, make sure you measure and mark both sides so your box will be level. Then, plant your herbs and let nature do the rest. Whenever you paint inside your house, you can roast sage leaves to neutralize the smell of fresh paint.

Wouldn’t we all like to have a makeover to rejuvenate our homes?  Don’t let a little thing like a budget be your stumbling block.  Here are 10 tips to kick start your inspiration:

1.     Rearrange the furniture you already have - Find a new focal point in the room to dictate your new layout.  If your existing furniture is looking tired, consider re-upholstering, refinishing the wood or using a fresh coat of paint.  Swap out the door pulls and handles to give the piece an all new look.

Professor's Master Bedroom

Michael is a professor who is so excited when Antonio knocks on his door.  That means he's finally getting a bedroom renovation.  Michael's house was apparently built "before they invented closets." Now his master bedroom is getting beautiful hand-made built-ins.  

Fish Tank Office

Antonio and his team have to deal with a massive fish tank in the middle of an otherwise empty office. Can they take an empty room and turn it into a bright and productive office space?

The Surfaces Design and Renovation Home Show is one of the premiere events in the DIY community. One of our long time partners, Quick-Step Flooring, will be showcasing the latest in flooring trends.

Featured in 
Quick-Step’s 2016
 booth will be Antonio Sabato, Jr., international celebrity, DIY/renovation expert, and host of the hit design renovation reality show “Fix It & Finish It”. Joining Sabato will be Nicki Huggins, lead interior designer for “Fix It & Finish It”.

It’s that time of year again – raiding Bed, Bath and Beyond, Target and other big box retailers to make sure your dorm room is perfect. The problem? Sometimes it can be expensive, impersonal and impractical. 

Wall Tapestry

The Back Story

Here’s how you can give your dining room chairs a five minute face lift. All you need is enough fabric to cover each seat cushion, scissors and a staple gun. Don’t forget extra staples. You don’t even need to change the padding on your chair. Remove the entire seat and put it upside down on your fabric. Stretch the material to smooth out any wrinkles and staple it all around. Trim off any extra, and set the seat back in place.  There you have it. A fresh stylish look for your dining room chairs in minutes.
