This morning we gave you a little teaser about our second video of the day. Well if you guessed it would be the measuring spoon organizer then you’re right!
We originally posted about this project a long time ago. We’re talking bad photos/baby blog/Casey-still-lived-in-St.-Louis kinda long time ago. Yeah…way back when! But even though it’s an oldie, it’s still a goodie in our playbook. Such an easy project that really has made a difference in both of our kitchens.
You can check out the full tutorial in the video below.
Good morning friends! We’re starting today off with 2 videos (one now, and another later this afternoon). Listening to us yapping about DIY projects should be more than enough to wake you up on this Tuesday morning…but you may as well go ahead and pour that 2nd cup o’ joe too!
We were asked to present some wall art projects for this particular segment of Weekend Workbench, so we decided to go with 2 of our most popular art pieces from the blog.
Our easy-peasy, don’t-poke-yourself, thumb tack art… …that we chatted about back in this post. We love the metallic thumb tack art because it’s pretty foolproof and you can customize it any way you want!
We also decided to go with another fan favorite…the quote on canvas.It’s another super simple project and we love that you can put your own twist on it with a quote that means something to you!
Here’s our wall art video debut.
The “before” on that canvas was pretty bad, right? If we had more time we probably would have painted the outside of the frame too…but you’ve gotta work fast when it comes to TV.
We’ll be back with another video later this afternoon. We’re again showing off one of our favorite projects. Here are some hints…it’s an oldie but a goodie, it involves organization, and it’s something you’d do in the kitchen.
Last August, Bridget shared a project that she deemed “life changing.” To say she is obsessed with her bedside charging station would be an understatement. The girl can’t get enough of this decorative way to charge her devices.
We recently shared this simple DIY project on an episode of Weekend Workbench on WGN. The episode was all about making your home smarter though technology, and we think our charging station definitely fit in with the episode theme.
If you’re looking to make your tech gadgets less of an eyesore, check out the video below.
We’ll have more Weekend Workbench videos coming your way soon (& by soon we mean early next week!)
Earlier this year in this post, we told you guys that we’re planning to step up our video skills around here, and today we’re doing just that! We recently upgraded some of our video equipment and we’re having so much fun playing around with everything. So bear with us as we give this video blogging thing a go!
Today, Bridget shares a tried and true trick for getting stickers and price tags off of glass…specifically picture frames. Personally, I hate when you’re all excited about a new purchase and you can’t wait to display it in your home…but then you realize there’s a price tag sticker that just doesn’t want to budge.
You peel from one corner…it rips off a tiny bit and leaves 80% of the sticker on. So you work on a another corner, only to have the same thing happen. Finally you get so defeated that you strategically display your glass item so the sticky part is hidden. Please tell us we’re not the only ones who play this price tag game?!
In this video, Bridget tells us how you can remove those pesky stickers (and their gross residue) with one simple supply.
How to Remove Stickers off Glass – Video
Magic erasers are seriously amazing. I think Bridget needs to buy stock in the company, considering the frequency with which she uses those bad boys.
We hope this little trick helps the next time you’re stuck with a large price tag on your picture frame or glass item.
Happy Friday to our favorite readers! Can we get a big T-G-I-F?! TGIF!
Today we have something fun planned before we sign off for the weekend. We’re changing things up here on the ol’ blog with a DIY video. Yep, you heard that right….video. These two rookies are on-camera…#shieldyoureyes
Apparently we’re really late to the game with the whole YouTube channel thing (we prefer the whole hiding-behind-computer-screens-technique), but it was time to finally woman up and hop in front of that camera to show you how to create some of our favorite projects.
For our first official DIY video, we reached into the archives to re-create our most popular project to date…the mason jar organizer. For some reason, people really love this post and we’ve gotten a slew of specific questions on how to put it all together. We’re total visual learners, so we figured seeing it on video might make the whole process a little easier for our readers to recreate.
Here’s our Mason Jar Organizer Instant Replay!
Right now, we’re slowly tip-toeing into the video world so expect to see more videos here on DIY Playbook. As always, we want our readers to be happy and enjoy the content we post on the blog. So please let us know your thoughts, and feel free to suggest some more video topics. We’d love your input!
To stay up to date with all of our video shenanigans, come follow our new YouTube channel. It’s pretty puny now (1 video?!), but we promise we’re working to beef it up with lots of content.
Ohhhh boy. Things are about to get a little crazy up in here. Over Christmas break we decided to shake things up a bit and do a video blog post. Yep, you heard that right. Us on camera?? We told you things were gonna get a little strange.
We’re answering some frequently asked questions about the blog, and just having a nice little chit chat. We figured it would be a fun and different way to start off 2014!
Come laugh with us (or even at us…we totally know that we’re pretty dang goofy on-camera) in our first DIY Playbook video.
See you back here tomorrow for our regularly scheduled project.
Happy 2014 fellow rookies!
