    How to Frame a Canvas

    Brooke had been saying she wanted something new for the foyer. Feeling a bit inspired, I thought, “Why not paint something myself?” You know I love a good challenge. So I got to work and whipped up an abstract landscape painting. She was ecstatic with the way it turned out and it gave our entryway that personal touch she was looking for.

    How to Build a Window Box

    We’ve been considering adding window boxes to our house for a while. But before I built a bunch of them, I decided to build one first and place it on one of the windows near our pool area. That way, we could see how it looks and decide if we want to add them to the front of the house. I documented the process so I could show you how to build your own window box.

    How to Build a Refrigerator Cabinet

    When we designed the kitchen in our latest renovation project, one of the must haves was a custom white oak refrigerator cabinet. This included a built-in refrigerator covered in custom white oak door panels. At first, I was a little intimidated by this project. But once I designed it and broke it down into sections, I feel much better about it. And once it was finished, I felt really good about it because it turned out better than we imagined.
