What up Internet Rob and Corinne here, and you’re watching Man vs. House! We are here, Day… I don’t even know, it’s been a couple weeks now The house is completely demolished But we have all of the doors and some of the windows and we’re gonna get started on some actual DIY projects around here Yeah
We’re gonna be turning our old closet doors into something new fresh and fabulous With the help of Monica from The Weekender If you don’t know Monica She’s got a show over in the Lowe’s YouTube channel called The Weekender where she goes over to people’s houses for the weekend and helps them renovate a space in their house It’s Monica everyone! Majorly starstruck right now Well, so are we! And I hear you’ve never used any power tools before? Well, I’ve used a drill… but… That’s about it
It kinda counts! So what’s the whole situation we have going on here? I think the idea first DIY is we’re gonna try to do the the Classic Pinterest project where you take a door, you slice it in half, And then you make like a bookshelf out of it!
Monica: classic I think we also want to be like a little antiquing, lil antiquify, like a wearing it down. Almost like a patina? Yeah, a lil patina! I guess it would be like French country. That’s not what we’re goin’ for! We’re going we’re going for French Country and that’s in the greenhouse! No. I gotta tell everybody inside Inside is different!!! It’s French country now guys. It’s French country. And then the second project we’re gonna tackle is kinda like a gardening table. I have a schematic Oooohhhh aaahhhh. Look at that schematic so this is one door….
okay, and this is a door that’s been sawed in half and then a leg Yeah, They have a ton of really cool, like chunky, ornate ones perfect for… what are we saying? French Country?
R: French Country Antique! M: Yeah, Antiquify! And Rob’s on board now! See?
R: Boom! Here’s what I’m gonna be taking on. I got a greenhouse. C: So, you’re gonna put together this greenhouse here Yeah, the whole thing! I read online, it takes a couple hours… Monica: weeks? Yeah, /DAYS???/ This should be interesting!
I’m gonna finish it! And actually while we go to Lowe’s Monica over here is going to be doing redoing our master bedroom M: absolutely, I feel like it’s the first room in the house that needs to be done so you guys have a place to sleep C: That’s true
during this. We’re gonna be in the bedroom. We can’t even see anything in there.
It is a surprise!
It’s super hush-hush. Well all right. We’re headed to Lowe’s. We’re gonna get the stuff! all the antiquing supplies one could ask for *alarm beeping* Just me. It’s just me. I didn’t take anything! Everybody’s looking at me all weird now. Do you remember what she told us to get? I don’t remember….. the paint! C: I found it!!

C: How is that even possible? All right, so this is the door, what are we gonna do in this one we need to cut it all right? That’s where I come in I See this thing We don’t measure anything here on the shaft like yay wide this ish ish parish, okay? We’re gonna use a circular saw fit who wants to cut it let’s not rob. Do it what all right you the drama music Taking a break in the middle Yeah All right, let’s let’s see how straight this line is Oh? Curvy all right ready to do this girl Let’s check out the line difference here to see oh yeah, yeah Man versus current versus the saw you’re in one alright. Let’s get the rest of this door Yes as you see here we have the piece of door that I so expertly sawed off straight as a gosh-dang arrow Okay, maybe not as straight as I wanted it to be but definitely better than Rob’s try the first thing We’re gonna be doing today is attaching the legs to this piece of the door then we’ll be attaching those pieces to our big door here I wonder how Rob is doing with this greenhouse looks good so far doesn’t seem like he’s gotten a lot done How’s it going over here? We only got one wall up so far you did a good job on this gravel here It was actually them All right, I’m gonna leave you the to it then fine get out of here Hqc when it lets go ACS Yeah, I got one of your greenhouses here, you didn’t give me all the parts that doesn’t help me I don’t have the part.

It’s not what you would call a basic bench Well those a knee-slapper and there it is take a look at that closet. I actually built this closet I built this probably head over to the Lowe’s channel to see how you cut wood And how Corrine built this bench in the meantime we get a head back outside and start finishing our DIYs Rolling in this tent my painting face Oh, yeah, look at that, so we spent a lot of time making it look new again now We’re gonna spend a lot of time making Ellen hauled again. It makes total sense completely Yeah, we’re gonna antique of five, would you buy we got the second peeking three-step process? Step one was putting the chalky finish paint on which is what we were doing last night And then I guess we’re on to step two, which is the sealing wax okay? So we’re gonna do a full coat of the clear wax wax on wax off. Yeah We’re just feeling the paint, but what it’s gonna Do is kind of give it a waxy finish on top of the chalk then step. Three is red of color minute I think so whoa I have more control over it than a brush Hey like DOS will rub it in oh yeah look at that. Oh that looks cool Put some elbow grease into it. She’s really working it She’s really working it and now if you think about your project it has lots of brushstrokes right now We’re gonna kind of go into the craft god I got the old slapping scuttle your technique is peeling some of the paint off here Hey, hey these things look awesome and antica fide I’m pretty impressed actually I didn’t think I was gonna like it the weekend is over Which means you gotta go hang and get out of here you guys are feeling good about your project pretty solid I think we’ll just call you up for five minutes though with questions.
