How To Make A Wood Countertops Easier Than You Thought! Makeover Diy



Have you ever considered putting a wood countertop somewhere in your home?

Next my husband cut slots with the biscuit joiner to join the boards together…. He put these back together and then sanded them smooth…..outside. This photo was taken after it was dry and the clamps were removed. Any area that has glue will not accept the stain and you’ll be left with unfinished looking spots.I will probably give it another coat or two but that’s it, all done!

We will be interested for updates on how well it wears. I love pine for the “farmhouse” feel it gives and a little beat up is even better!

I love the beetlekill pine form the mountains and would like to use it. There are varying ways that people have finished them out from water based poly, to oil based to marine type poly. In your opinion, do you think this would be a good choice ?

Thanks for fixing the problem with share-a-holic from a few months ago. I know some seal with the marine finishes because they hold up to so much. Did you have any issues with the 2×6 boards twisting to warping?

I wanted it to have a bit since the floor also looked “aged”. It wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t nice and smooth going across the top. If you like that look, then you can skip the “ripping down the wood” step. By the way, be careful when you glue that it doesn’t seep up into the top of the wood. That flooring was the main attraction and everything just looked wrong next to it.

We already had the biscuits to join them and stain/poly. Being careful to use screws long enough to secure but not go through the top.

We actually considered doing this a few years ago, in the the kitchen.

I never got very far with our plans since we changed gears, so am not 100% what we would have sealed it with. And if so did screwing it to the base cabinets take care of it?

No, we haven’t and yes, screwing to the base will help that somewhat if you do have an issue with it.

We were just very careful in our selection of boards from the store. My husband wasn’t so sure in the beginning but he got on on board finally!

Bathroom Makeovers by diyhomedesignideas.com

I actually think it would not be that expensive to add an element like this because, although it is a bold look, it is simply decorative tile installed on the floor rather than walls. Just like it is not necessary to change the bathroom layout if the traffic flow works well and there is sufficient functionality. Even better, small modifications like these can keep the bathroom remodel cost quite low. Tile and cabinetry tend to be the most expensive items of a bathroom remodel. Before we were called, he ripped out the existing tile floors and their old countertops. They even offer classes you can take if you are committed to doing it yourself. Too often master baths feature boring monochromatic color palettes with neutral finishes.

They can be a bit daunting because the average bathroom remodel cost is not cheap. However, you can take ideas and inspiration from images like this and incorporate them into your bathroom renovations. Simple changes like revamping paint colors or switching out fixtures and knobs can make an enourmous difference to the overall style of the space. Unfortunately that is a hard question to answer because it all depends on the room you start out with, and what you want it to look like once it is complete. First and foremost, recycle existing decorative features whereever possible. There are small bathroom makeovers that you can do to give new life to old pieces. I think that this room intimidates homeowners (rightfully so) and they don’t feel as confident with do it yourself projects in here. But once it came time to replace the flooring and add the wall tile, he was stumped.

Diy Painted Countertop Makeover Part 2 2019 | Duration 4 Minutes 24 Seconds

I used 1/2″ and 3/4″ plywood (and my kreg jig) to make new shaker style doors for the middle cabinet. This is really only used by guests (who don’t stay very often) so it’s not an issue for us. Those that sit completely on top of the counter & those that are partially recessed into the countertop.

We just went through this remodeling both of our bathrooms. Recessed ones are usually deeper & allow the cabinet to remain at the standard height like her existing cabinet. Lots of options, but you need to decide how high the rim of your vessel sink can be to be comfortable once installed on the desired cabinet with countertop. Do you remember where you got your sink, faucet, and light above sink?

I wanted to know what is the name of the paint color you used for the gray walls.

The Moment You’Ve Been Waiting For…Our White Kitchen Makeover Reveal!! by decorchick.com

Some things are just better left to cabinet painting pros who have done this many many times and for several years. Me telling him all of my home blogger girlfriends use this and that really didn’t do much for him!

I added these little felt pads to all of my cabinet doors and drawers to protect them when they get shut. These pads are a lifesaver and will help our cabinets hold up very well over time. The old kitchen was really nice the way it was but the all white, with those counters look stunning!

And now to see the finished product makes up my mind!

I can understand why you get giddy everytime you look at it!

One of our projects for this year is to redo our kitchen and painting the cabinets will be one my to-do list. Fair warning though, this post will be picture heavy but it deserves it. I am even going to do a separate post on painting the cabinets because they deserve their own.I can’t exactly just drop off the kids all day or for a few days and just work on this project. I must say that it did leave the most beautiful finish ever on our cabinets. Adel hand painted the cabinet frames and all of the doors and drawers were sprayed at his shop. Did you put a bit of gray in your white paint so it would darken to a grayer white?

I saw your post on countertops and have been looking to see the whole room. Now that pantry door just needs a splash of color (maybe turquoise, robin’s egg blue?).

How To Build A DIY Kitchen Island by lowes.com

Use simple straight cuts on plywood and stock boards to wrap the cabinets. Drill a countersunk pilot hole to avoid splitting the wood before driving each screw. Apply glue to the back base rail, then clamp the back in position and secure with screws. Cut each part to fit as you go, working with one board at a time; the process is easier than it looks. If the stile overhangs the plywood, the rails are too long and need to be trimmed. Choose an 18-gauge brad nailer for finish nails up to 2 inches long, and use a 16-gauge nailer if you need to drive longer nails. Stand the island up and drive screws through the back into the adjacent pilaster. The slight overhang of the corner stile will conceal any gap between the cabinet and the side of the island. The cleats can be positioned at whatever height you need to custom-fit your storage needs. Trim the 1 x 12 boards so they are 1/8 inch shorter than the length of the opening between the cabinet sides. Hold the trim in place, mark the corner, and then cut it to length. Test the length by placing the remaining stile against the end of the rails.The bottom rail is located 3 inches above the bottom of the panel. Fasten the remaining stile, and repeat for the other end assembly. Nail gun nails should be the same length as the hand-driven nails called for in the drawing. Now you don’t have to push the nail head below the surface of the wood using a hammer and nail set. Add the second pilaster assembly to the opposite end of the island. Apply glue to the back of the cabinet and to the edge of the face frame that fits behind the corner stiles and against the ends. Move the spacer up to position the next cleat, and repeat for the opposite side. This will allow the shelves and cabinet to be painted separately and the shelves to be installed later. This includes sanding a 10-foot-long piece of base shoe that will be installed after the project is installed in your kitchen. Apply a few beads of silicone adhesive to the top of the ends and the back, then rest the countertop in position.

LiveLoveDIY: Easy DIY Ideas For Updating Your Bathroom! by livelovediy.com

It’s an easy, affordable solution, and always helps to update an outdated space. I removed the construction grade mirror and hung a framed mirror. The mirror was attached to the wall with adhesive rather than screwed in like the other bath. This would have taken a year in our crazy un-finished product house!

I recently painted our purplish/gray bathroom a light gray and got a yellow and gray bath curtain. I am curious to know if you painted the trim around the vanity?

I have wanted to paint our vanity but wasn’t sure what to do about the trim. If you ever want to take down a big mirror the trick is to tape it all down first with clear packing tape or similar. The adhesive on the back will make it not come out in perfect little squares but the tape keeps little pieces of glass from flying around. The bathrooms, however, have hideous peach-colored 70s tile on the walls and in the shower. I would love to upgrade to a fancy glass shower and gorgeous marble countertops, but that’s just plain unrealistic for us right now. I decided to switch it up a bit by putting round knobs on the drawers and vertical pulls on the doors.

You can see that around the edges the mirror was discolored and looked awful. It was super easy, just time consuming, but it made such a huge impact!

Hope you’ll check it out and grab a featured button!

I also like that you don’t have old 70s-80s tile on the walls!
