Barn Roof Ceiling Day 97 The Garden Home Challenge With P. Allen Smith
No, I'm not putting this on the roof. I'm gonna use it in a very creative way in the house. They say an ecofriendly house can't be built in 150 days for $150,000, and I say it can. I'm Allen Smith. Join me, as I push the limits with time, budget and creativity with the Garden Home Challenge, exclusively on eHow Home. Okay, looking at this, you might think Hey, whataya doin', buildin' a barn Well, no, I'm just trying to come up with a creative and costefficient way to put a ceiling in this room. This is actually galvanized.
Roofing material. It's very thin gauge. In fact, it's the thinest gauge I could find. The reason I did that because it was less expensive. These sheets were $15 a piece. And the ridging on here if you ask for this these are 12 inch sheets, and they're 2 12 inches from this point to this point. So that gives you an idea of the undulation or the ridging on this particular kind of 'barn roofing'. So, anyway, I decided that Hey, why not use this on the ceiling, because if I did, I could do the ceiling for about 130.
Bucks. And that's what we've done. So, if you look up, you can see that we've got the entire ceiling complete. And what we've got is a series of little screws that have been placed in there. And what learned is that the size screw that they recommended at the store really didn't work. And it was this screw here This is a stainless steel screw. However, what we were finding is that this thing was really too big for the gauge of metal. And when you talk about the gauge of metal that's like the thickness of the metal.
So this is really a thin gauge metal. So what was happening, it was crimping the tin or the galvanized material it was causing little divots, and it didn't look very good. So went to a smaller head, galvanized screw like this, which is 1 and 58s inches. And that seemed to work a lot better. That was Tony's idea. And, you can see, you can barely see them along the lines of the ceiling joists across here. And then if you look at the the ceiling connects to the west wall. He's got a little jig that he's made that follows that undulation.
Because he's gonna cut one out that'll fit under each one of those pieces for this wall. And then we'll have a straight piece that'll run along the south wall, because they're no undulations there, you can see. And so, we'll use a 6 inch board, and the bottom of that board will be level on this side and this side, so it'll look like the crown cornice in here. I know it looks like a mirrored ceiling, but you can't see yourself in it. And, hey, if you don't like it shiny like this you can paint the stuff. So what I have here is a.
Decorating Flower Vases At Home With P. Allen Smith
Let me show you some clever ways to go from this to something like this, without breaking the bank. Now I really enjoy finding ordinary things that are very affordable, classic in the look and use them in creative ways. For instance, these cylinder vases, you can do a million different things with them. They're a lot fun to dress up for various occasions and as gifts. And so what I've done here is I've taken one, and rather than cover it, I've just filled it with various kinds of citrus lemons and limes slices here, with.
Just bouquet of yellow Mums. Bright and perky and very affordable. And take a look at this vase, I just took some purple ribbon, with a little green band on it, and I wrapped it all the way around this cylinder vase. Tied a little green Raffia at the top and filled it up with these mauvecolored tulips. A beautiful gift. And then, what I'm doing here, I just wanna show you how you can take ordinary ribbon and just attach your ribbon. I like to start at the bottom. And I'll just fold a piece of ribbon like that and attach the ribbon.
Here and then just gently turn the vase. And just keep a little tension on it. It takes more ribbon than you might imagine. This is really a fun polka dot ribbon that I'm gonna take all the way to the top. You want just enough overlap. And bring it to the top. Take a pair of scissors and cut it off like this. And carefully slide it under there, so it adheres to the vase itself and the ribbon. And then pull across like that. Yep. Now you can decorate that up, just about anyway you like. Now take a look at this one. I've been.
Taking just some various twigs of different colors, and I've used this natural jute, and I'm gonna tie this around. So if you're doin' some sort of a dinner party, or you're looking for ways to set a table for a rehearsal dinner or something like that, these are affordable and creative ways to do flower vases. And then if you take something like these gorgeous Hyacinths that have a tendency to flop anyway. Let me add some water, first. What I like to do is keep them banded at the base like this, and then I just gently slide the Hyacinths.

Autumn Tablescape With Rebecca Robeson At Home With P. Allen Smith
There's lots of choices around here, Rebecca, for making this table look the way you want it to, so we just have to decide. You think you wanna use those plates I do I think they bring in the color of the sofa. Yeah, well, they're better than the white Kinda pulls the room together. That's just too boring. Yeah, I think these are good. Okay, now listen, the closets are full of stuff around here. I know. So we'll just go through and drag out whatever you want to make this come together. Let's pull together an amazing table. Looks.
Like we're just about ready for guests. I think so. It came together beautifully. You know, just using what you had, and even things in the garden, I think we did pretty well. It looks so abundant and full it's be perfect for a holiday. You know, can you imagine for Thanksgiving this would be awesome. And this is something that people can do themselves. You know, it is. I mean, you should look around to see what you have and build it from there. That's what we did here. Yes, now, not everyone has gourds you can pick those up but.
Just the leaves. And these are the fig leaves, right Right. You based it with that. You took those off the big fig tree and then sort of laid up a base, and then on top of it, just placed pomegranates and some of these gourds and things from the supermarket. It's amazing what you can pick up at the grocery store. It is, and I think it's also so bountiful it's gonna make people feel good when they come to sit here and eat and enjoy a nice meal together. Well, that's the whole idea To comfort and just enjoying the conversation.
And company of friends. I really like the way these plates work with the white plates. The napkins you choose, I think, look really great. You got these color echoes going with all the different golds, these different flowers and napkin colors. And one of things I use a lot when I do my tables is I put a votive candle in a different kind of container, but they're all the same. And each what it does is it makes each plate separate and special and it makes it light up, especially at night. But I also use candles in the daytime. Yeah.
Do you I do. And it illuminates it. And when they get ready to sit down, you can just move it over. Move it on over. And it becomes part of the tablescape itself. Yeah, good job. Yeah, right back at you. I love how the arrangements turned out, and just using three, that's really all you need. It's perfect. Simple, stylish and homegrown. Listen, we'd love to have you subscribe to eHow Home, where we teach you, every single day, something new you can use.

How To Design Indoor Containers with Teena Spindler
Hi, it's Teena Spindler. here usually we're out the garden but today I'm bringing you inside because I've got some inside projects I want to take care and I love to bring a bit of the garden from outside into the house. And in nature we see some great arrangements that include height, various shades of green, and that awesome pop of color. In order to create that inside I want to use a concept that I call Thriller, Spiller, Filler and I use that concept in order to give myself a really interesting arrangement inside.
So let's grab the pot take it outside and get started. First thing we need to do is put a little soil in our pot liner here. This is what we're actually planting in. The pots in the living room are decorative. The potting mix that I'm filling is a Moisture Control potting mix So the first thing I'm gonna go ahead and put in here is our palm which is one of our thriller plants. Nice tall, great shades of green. You want to take a look at the roots of.
The plant that you've taken out of the pot. They're usually a little compacted down at the bottom. So it's a good idea to go ahead and loosen those roots, and don't be afraid, you're not gonna kill it by giving it a little time. And the reason that you want to do that is if you don't these poor roots will continue to circle the plant rather than reaching out into the soil. We're going to put this in the back of this pot so that we have room in the front for.
Our Fillers and Spillers. The next plant I'm going to put in here is both a Thriller and a Filler because it's going to be in the foreground with that great color to give us a little thrill, but it's also going to cover some of these long stems and fill up that void there. Tuck that in. We want the height of all of these root balls to be about the same. Our next plant that we're going to add is gorgeous zenbidium. I love zenbidiums because they had a lot of color.
And they last a really time. This one is both Thriller and a Filler well and I love how it picks up that yellow from the kalanchoe. So we've got some beautiful yellows going on here but different textures of leaves, different shapes of flowers. Now our last plant that we're going to put in here is our Spiller, and this lovely pothos which it's verigated foliage you can see actually pick up that yellow. Now that we've finished planting our plants the next step is to give them a good water and also feed them at the same time.
The last thing that we want to do to really finish this up before I put it inside is to cover the exposed soil with Spanish moss. Very easy to do, just rip off a little piece of it, and look for some exposed soil and tuck it in. You don't really have to worry about hanging over the edges is because we're going to be inserting into our bigger pots so anything that's hanging over will end up getting covered up. Okay, I think we've got it all ready, let's go ahead and take it.
Interior Primer Day 110 The Garden Home Challenge With P. Allen Smith
So here you see the before with the raw wood and here's the after. Well, sort of the after it's just the primer coat. Let me tell ya Raw wood sucks up a lot of paint. They say an ecofriendly house can't be built in a 150 days for $150,000, and I say it can. I'm Allen Smith. Join me as I push the limits with time, budget and creativity with the Garden Home Challenge, exclusively on eHow Home. Making some progress now. We've got the primer coat on, well, most of the walls up here in the cottage. But before the primer.
Was put on, what I wanna do is make sure that we got really all the rough places, the unsightly bits, the retina irritants, as I like to call them, covered up with caulk. And so, what I instructed the guys to do was to come along, and I didn't really want to violate the rustic nature of the of what we're trying to do here. I mean, I really love this pine wood. And so, what we did is we just went along and had them fill in the tiny little nail gun.
Holes, because they were so regular. Now, if this had been nailed up with a hammer and tenpenny nail that would have added to the rustic quality. But the regularity of that little fine nail. And I wanted those all covered up. And it looks like that they were able to do that. And I instructed them not to put any kind of caulk in these horizontal lines here, because I think it adds so much to the look that we're going for. We have knot holes to deal with. You can see the primer coat here. We have to come back to these knot holes,.
Because they're often filled with a resin that will, over time, ooze through the paint. So there's a product that we can apply to some of these to make sure that doesn't happen. A little bit of that is kinda cool. The darker the paint the less you have to worry about it. Although here, what I'm looking for are really lighter colors. You can see, we just a basic white as a primer coat. But even when we get down to making decisions about the colors of the rooms, they're gonna be lighter in color than darker, because it makes the.
Room feel much more expansive. Now, if you look at the beadboard here on the hall, we did the same the same thing. Where these angled pieces of beadboard meet the vertical pieces of beadboard caulking was applied. And then, you can still feel it's bit rough, and so they're gonna come back with just some sandpaper and just kinda knock that tooth off before we do the final coat of paint on all the walls up here. Hey, if you're enjoying following the progress of the house, check in with us there's still plenty to go. Subscribe to eHow.
Mirror Magic The Garden Home Challenge With P. Allen Smith
Hey, there's nothing like mirrors to add a little magic to the home. You watched us design and build this house in 150 days, but the work is far from over. We're about to jump into my favorite part of the process of bringing all this together. Join me for an exclusive look right here on eHow Home. If you've ever had to design a small space, an interior, and you need to make it look larger, you've probably discovered the power and beauty of mirrors. Yes, the reflective quality of mirrors can do multiple things, magical things to.
A space. First, they can make it feel larger. They can bring light in and reflect natural light around the room. Take this entry hall for stance it's really not that big. In fact, it's very small. But by placing this mirror, which is really a take off a window, with the muntins you can see radiating in the mirror behind it, makes this room feel larger. I even added another mirror in this hall just over here. This is a Victorian hall tree probably from about 1890, maybe 1880. And you can see, a mirror is mounted here.
In the center of this. I love how twiggy this thing looks. It's caste iron and we painted it this lovely gray. Let me show you some other examples of mirrors. This piece of furniture you see here, the mirror is built into it so you have this beveled piece of mirror, which perfectly fits this wall in the house. Now come in here, let me show you where we have mirrors as vessels. And then you take a large bottle like this which was for making wine this is actually mirrored glass or mercury glass, and you see it reflects everything.
