Video – A Quick Look at our Lowe’s Fall Makeover

lowes-makeover-bedroom-reveal-wide-shot

It’s been over a month since we revealed the master bedroom makeover we did with Lowe’s Home Improvement, and we are still obsessed with the space!lowes-makeover-bedroom-reveal

The room photographs really well, but it’s hard to really capture the feel of a room. To us it feels so bright and happy, yet it’s still cozy and comfortable.

lowes-makeover-bedroom-reveal-benchAnd in terms of the actual renovation day? That day felt energetic, exciting, and at times even overwhelming!

lowes-makeover-bedroom-reveal-cameraWe decided to hire a producer and videographer to capture the entire Lowe’s Fall Makeover experience, and honestly it is the best money we ever spent! Although video & photography are similar mediums, there’s just something about video that is really special. It tells a story, it can build emotion, it can just capture something unlike the way photography does.

lowes-makeover-bedroom-reveal-gallery-wall-bridgetSo we absolutely knew that we needed to record this crazy makeover experience and we had our video team create 2 videos for us. This first one today is a trailer highlighting the entire day. Really it’s just a little snippet of what went into making this space come to life. In the next video we’ll share a much longer story that includes interviews from both us and the homeowners.

We hope you enjoyed a glimpse into our chaotic renovation day. We can’t wait to share more when we reveal the next video!

Fall Video 2016

leaves-fall-plaid-vestjpg

In August, we revealed our summer video and it was so fun showcasing some of the highlights from the season. It kinda feels like a video scrapbook commemorating all of the fun we have together over the course of the year.

Here’s a link to the summer video if you want to check that one out.

leaves-fall-plaid-vestjpgWe decided to continue this little project into the fall season, and today we’re sharing that video with all of you. We know the season isn’t officially over until next month, but once Thanksgiving hits it’s gonna be all about the holidays…so we figured now is the best time to share our fall content!

cedarburg-river-fallThis video is a little different because we segmented it into locations from various trips we took over the last few months. You’ll see a bit from our trip with Michaels to Carmel, CA…some highlights from Casey & Finn’s anniversary weekend in WI…and of course footage from Chicago!

Fall 2016 Video


We’re fortunate to create so many amazing memories together because of this blog, and seeing them all played out in a 2 minute video reminds us how truly lucky we are to have each other. And in honor of Thanksgiving week, we couldn’t end this post without saying a big THANK YOU to our favorite readers! We’re so grateful for your endless love & support and can’t thank you enough for spending some time with us each day here on The DIY Playbook.

VIDEO: Measuring Spoon Cabinet Organizer

Kitchen-Cabinet-Organizer-Measuring-Cups

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!

IMG_0226We 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!
IMG_0216But 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.

Thanks for tuning in guys!Β Bridget and Casey Signature

VIDEO: Wall Art Tutorials

weekend workbench

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…
thumbtack 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.Dresser-Top-New-LampIt’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.

The answer today at 2:00pm!Bridget and Casey Signature

    You gals are too stinkin’ cute. I had recently bought SEVERAL packages of thumb tacks on major clearance at a Sears hardware going out of business extravaganza knowing I’d seen something like your simple crafted “F” and knew I could make my own as well. I was also going to search on Pinterest to see what other thumb tack crafts there are because like I said, I have tons of thumb tacks right now waiting to be inspired. If you have other thumb tack useful ideas, please let me know.

      Aw, thanks!! Good luck with your thumbtack art project, we’d love to hear how it goes. Hmm… other thumbtack. Maybe border a bulletin board to make it look like nail-head trim? I’m sure Pinterest won’t let you down for new ideas. Happy Crafting!

VIDEO: Charging Station Tutorial

Cell phone charging station

Last August, Bridget shared a project that she deemed “life changing.” beside charging stationTo 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!)

VIDEO: How to Get Stickers Off Glass

Gallery-Wall-Frames

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. 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 Β price tag game?!Β 

In this video, Bridget tells us how you can remove those pesky stickers (and their gross residue) with one simple supply.Β Take a look…

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.

Rookies – 1, Price Tag – 0. Take that!

    wow!! I bought a stockpile of these from Amazon when we moved into the house – I have some stickers on pieces of glass from our table that i couldn’t get off well. Thanks for the tip!!

    I just love magic erasers, but I’ve never thought to use it on price tag stickers! Genius. But seriously….why do they have to put the sticker directly ON the glass? I’ve always found that rather annoying. πŸ™‚

    Hi Bridget! I’ve been using magic erasers for stickers and just about everything else since the day they were invented!!! Love them! But you know what I love even more???? The generic ones! Home Depot sells a box of them in their supply aisle dirt cheap. I buy six boxes at a time. Almost forty sponges keep me going for two months! I like the fact that they are a little softer than the name brand. The softness allows you to get in all kinds of corners and crevices. I find that the name brand and especially the wavy edged ones “crack” in half or break off when I try to get in a corner. I haven’t used a “Brillo” pad in my sink either since the advent of these things. I use them on my pots and pans, dishes, even Waterford!!! — Jackie Blomberg

Mason Jar Organizer: Instant Replay

Mason-Jar-Organizer-2

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.

MVP_template_MasonJarFor 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!

mason jar organizerTo 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.

Have a wonderful weekend, friends!

Happy New Year from DIY Playbook

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!
