    The project I am most proud of is when we reroofed our own home saving us thousands of dollars. Of course by we I mean mostly my husband and our bros and dad’s, but I served drinks… so that counts, right? ( I was 5 months prego so not allowed on roof for record 😉 )

    The DIY project I am most proud of is the wood floor we installed in the home I just sold. The one I lived in for 10 years with gross linoleum. (Ya… the part about “just sold” is NOT my favorite.)

    Though I didn’t use it on that particular project, WD40 ROCKS!

    To save time and money on projects, I hire someone else to do them! I’m all thumbs. 🙁

    The first time I ever fixed something was soon after the first time I ever broke something in my own home… a shelf in a cupboard. I had been bending down inside the cupboard when the postman banged on the door, I jumped up (yes, I get overly excited about what the mail) and bashed my head on the shelf, breaking it from it’s fixings at the same time.

    Well, first home, first cupboard and first DIY chore. I set about fixing it before the Wife found out as I knew I would get no sympathy, just the a good telling off about being more careful. 🙂


    P.s. It wasn’t long before I was found out as I did a rather bad job of it and the shelf seemed to slope somewhat by the time I had finished.

    I like to make projects with old windows and doors. I love antique glass in doors and antique door knobs and hardware. Once, while living in Scarsdale new York, I made a beautiful headboardand foot board for my bed. I constructed it out of old doors. The center door had a glass oval window that I etched. I searched for just the right antique door hardware- I wanted ornate hinges and faceplates for the glass knobs.

    When I found them- WD40 was essential to use so that I could remove the rusty old parts without damaging them while I removed them from the old discarded doors and placed them on the antique doors I used for the headboard and footboard of my new bedframe.
    I LOVED making it and I loved that bed. My only regret was not getting a photo of it and not being able to move it with me when I left New york!

    The project I’m most proud of is the total main floor remodel of our first home. We bought it from the family of a little old lady who had be born, lived her whole life and died there. Over 6 layers of wallpaper on lath n plaster walls, neglected hard wood floors, and so on. W-D 40 was our best friend…old doors, squeaky hinges etc. Neither my husband or I knew much about anything but he was working at a hospital and nearly everyday he’d start a conversation with some matinence guy and learn something new or be directed to someone who could help him. We learned priceless lessons and skills. We were also able to sell it a year later and pay for Gary to go to mortuary school where we got to meet YOU!

    The project I’m most proud of is our stained concrete floors. They are stunning and just about take the breath away of anyone walking into our home for the first time. However! The project was incredibly difficult. We kept getting conflicting instructions from the supply company, and the instructional video they provided made the job look far easier than it was. Was it worth it? Yes, and we would do it again!

    Tell us what it takes to be a DIYer? – I personally think it takes resourcefulness. A professional has all the right tools for the job because they do it often, but a DIYer may be confined to a few primitive tools. I don’t own a tall ladder, rip saw, nail gun, etc. Mostly because I don’t have proper storage for such items. When I start a project, not only do I know it may take me longer based on my primitive tools, but I may not have a very necessary item. I’ve found that with enough resourcefulness and patience, I can find ways around not having the best tools. You should have seen me trying to thread a chain over a bar on my patio 12 feet above me without a ladder. I balanced on a chair, with a broom, a rope, a roll of paper, and some tape. Amazingly enough, after 15 minutes of fiddling, I was able to repeat the process within minutes. Who needs a ladder anyway?

    I’m anti-DIY it would seem … however, there was one project I was most proud of …

    My wife and I got married in a medieval theme styled wedding and among many, I was proud of 2 projects I did.
    ( 1) “Chair Backs” (http://hartandyvonne.com/pics/DLP_01-15.jpg) that attached to the back of chairs to make our chairs look like thrones .. uncomfortable as heck to relax because it was basically plywood against your back – but sure looked nice during the dinner ceremony and speeches 🙂
    (2) “Medieval Flags” (http://hartandyvonne.com/pics/DLP_03-14.jpg) with a custom logo caricatures of ourselves on them. I made sure everybody had a flag and when we were finally announced man and wife had the entire audience wave their flag to cheer us – like in the movie A Knight’s Tale actually :D) – and instead of spoons tapping on glasses during dinner we only agreed to kiss during dinner if an entire table stood up and waved that flag. Looked great on video and in person!

    the video was quite adequate to answer my most basic inquiries but i really think i need more assistance with all these.

  • Lisa R September 21, 2010, 8:02 pm

    I’ve realized I need ambition to get my DIY projects off the ground and determination to see them through to the end. Fabulous products and tips from friends who’ve done the project before help, too!

  • Bon "Idearella" Crowder September 22, 2010, 2:53 pm

    Oooo… ouch.

    I replumbed my mother’s tub and shower once. I had only one previous experience with PVC pipe.

    After it was done the sheetrock behind the tub had been fully removed and the plumbing looked like a stoned artist was trying his hand with a new medium.

    In one square foot of PVC plumbing I used seven joints.

    Now I say that I have experience with PVC, but I never offer to use it.

    “See the contest rules for more info. Comment below now to enter and get in on the prizes!”

    I didn’t think I needed to see the rules when I posted my comment that was selected as one of the winners of this prize (you probably want to make note of this for future entries)

    Grrr… I am not a resident of USA. I live in Canada thus, ineligible to win a prize.

  • Alison Moore Smith October 13, 2010, 9:05 am

    Oh, Hart! I’m so sorry. I don’t write the contest rules, I was just asked to link to them. :/ Fine print!

  • Alison Moore Smith November 5, 2010, 6:52 pm

    We have another winner!


  • Lisa R February 21, 2011, 1:23 am

    I have searched my archived email and can’t find anything from WD40. Is there any way you might be able to check on the status of the prize pack?

  • Robert Monette June 11, 2011, 7:58 am

    Wd40 very useful for used rusted pieces
