Dresser Makeover - DIY

Some of my favorite projects for DIY are the makeovers. The before and afters. I could spend hours just looking at stuff like this! What about you? Are you in the mood to update a dresser or a wall in your home or office?
I learned from Laura Gummerman of A Beautiful Mess, that you can buy removable designer paper for just about any surface. It's called Chasing Paper. Have you heard of it? Now that I know about it, I can think of a million projects I could use this easy peel and stick paper for.

Supplies Needed:

Dresser (something you want to makeover)
Leg plates
Legs
Decorative paper (Chasing Paper)
Electric saw (to remove original legs)
Scissors (or blade)
Brass corner guard plates
Spray paint
Sandpaper
Spray finish
Step 1: First, you need to take an electric saw and cut off the wooden legs.
Step 2: Using sandpaper, rough up the table slightly.
Step 3: Apply paint to the dresser and spray sealant after it's completely dry.
Step 4: Attach the leg plates to the bottom of the dresser and screw on legs.
Step 5: Cut the desired shape of the decorative paper. Chasing Paper products are self-stick and do not require special tools or adhesives. Also, if you make a mistake, you can easily peel it off and re-stick it.
Step 6: To give your makeover a finished look, add decorative brass guard plates around the corners, as shown.

Top 4 Signs You Need to Repair the Waterline
When the waterline is damaged somehow or becomes too old, it shows signs visibly to immediately change the pipe. Waterline is one of the significant parts of your home’s plumbing system.

Sudden Increased Water Bills: If you notice the water bills are increasing significantly higher than usual, you should consider it as a sign of waterline damage.

You will notice the water pressure is low or interrupted. In that case, consider calling a professional.

Make This Shelf In 1 Hour - DIY
Totally serious! Yes--you can make this cute shelf with cute curves in about an hour. To add color to this woodworking project, all you have to do is get spray paint, sealant and wait for it to dry, which means it won't be done in an hour. Maybe 2-3 hours. Supplies Needed: -DPI board (you only need one sheet) -a pine board (1 x 6 x 8 would be just enough) -10 wood screws -paint & polyurethane -saw tooth picture hangers (optional) Tools: -table saw (you could get away with just using a hand saw) -drill -square -2 clamps (or a pair of helping hands) Step One: Cut 2 strips of DPI (each 6" x 48") and one board at 6" x 28 11/16". On either end of those pieces, measure and mark in 3 inches. Step Two: From here, it's just a matter of taking one side of each of the DPI pieces and putting them together, overlapping by 3 inches, then clamping them together. (Clamp on the end of each piece. You want room to screw into the middle shelf.) Make sure to keep the shiny side on the outside. After one side is clamped,very carefully, bend the two unclamped ends together, overlapping by 3 inches, and then clamp those. TIP: DPI will bend, but when you are bending it, do it slowly and without applying too much pressure to one single section, or it will snap. Step Three: Once the circle is formed, and if you did your math right, the center piece should fit nicely. From there, you can hold boards up wherever you want them and mark. Then cut. If the piece hits right in the middle of the circle, you won't need to cut angles. Step Five: After the pieces are cut and looking good in their respective spots, hold a speed square up to them while screwing them in... gotta keep the wonkiness to a minimum. Step Six: Finally, you can just put a screw or nail in the wall, hang the shelf on it, and call it a day. Or spend 5 more minutes and put a couple saw tooth hangers on the back for extra stability.
