Do-It-Yourself Ideas with Homemade Simple TV

Whenever I watch TV, it’s always a DIY, Cooking, or a show from the “olden days.” So, I was definitely excited about watching Home Made Simple TV that comes on OWN network. Home Made Simple TV airs on Saturdays at 9:00 a.m. EST and is hosted by Soleil Moon Frye. I knew I would love the show. Why wouldn’t I? I’m a Do-it-Yourself girl. I love making, creating, and remaking items. So, this is my kind-of-show. I watched the episode on April 12th. It was titled, Daddy School of Design. I loved the show! If you’re looking for neat and inexpensive ways to add changes to your home, this is the type of show that you want to watch.

This particular show was about a couple named Lynette and Derek Justin. The show was centered around turning the family’s garage into a Daddy School. Derek is a special education teacher and he also helps his children at home with their work. So, the show was working toward turning the garage into a place that Derek could work with the children. These were some of things that were done to the garage: (Pictures; Home Made Simple.)

The couple had an old coffee table with a glass top. The glass was already broken in the top part of the table. So, it was remade into a 3-in-1 game table. There was an air hockey table on the bottom, a checkers and backgammon table on top of the air hockey and a regular top overlaying both of those. So neat! I have a regular coffee table so it might be kind of hard for me to remake that project, but I still love it.

Another project that was done on the show was turning an old globe into a chalkboard. The family did not use the globe anymore. It was very old. I’ve seen many people turn items into chalkboard and I’m itching to try one of these projects. I could definitely use some type of chalkboard near the kitchen. This was cute.

My favorite project that was done was the Custom Art Piece of Derek when he was in school. My husband ran track and now coaches track. This would be so neat for me to do. Adhesive paper was used to trace the image of Derek onto the wall. Of course, you will need a projector to enlarge the picture.

Another item was the Magnetic Wall Word Game. Who wouldn’t love a magnetic wall word game! There were so many different things that were done for the Garage Makeover.

Of course, Lynette wasn’t left out. The kitchen was redone. There was a pretty yellow color on the wall and new appliances. Yep…new kitchen appliances. And, you know a big reveal was done at the end. Everyone loved the new changes…..

You definitely want to watch an episode and see the great things happening on Saturdays at Home Made Simple TV. You can see more about the show here. Plus, there is an opportunity to join in on their Twitter Party on Thursday, 4/17 from 8-9 pm EST with the hashtag #homemadesimple.
