Mike Edwards from DIY Doctor has been testing out new products in our film studio. Well we say film studio – that makes our converted container sound very grand. (This photograph above isn’t it by the way – this one is from one of our Pinterest friends).
So we will be letting you know about the products Mike recommends shortly, but in the mean time here is a way you can waste a bit of time when you should be doing DIY.
We would like to pay homage to the humble container – there are so many uses that they can be put to, and we often feature cool container conversions in our blogs. So please send us any photos of containers that you think deserve to be featured. If anyone asks you are doing valuable ‘research’ online.
You can also click over to Pinterest and find the DIY Doctor boards there pinterest.com/diydoctor. If you want to share your own favourite photographs with us then email DIY Doctor and ask for a link to our shared board.
You can Pin photographs of anything to do with Home Improvement, DIY or craft, and gardening. In fact anything home-related that interests you, but keep it clean, or it will be off. Any of us who have found our Pinterest boards will know we also have a fondness for Owls (don’t ask) so you can post those too. But no more cute cats please, or dogs in jackets, pigs in wellies, etc there are enough of those on Pinterest already.
Happy DIY pinning!
Having a few days off to has allowed us to find some new games to play over Christmas. We love a good parlour game and this year’s favorite was Country Country Town – the original inspiration for Scategories, and one I can remember trying to play at Christmas sat under Auntie Marjorie’s dining table. While the ‘grown ups’ showed off their geographical knowledge, we kids tried to think of a river beginning with A.
Anyway now we have reached the 21st Century and the boys all had a ‘scrabble-off’ with Words with Friends. This means that we are now happy to take on the world with the Zynga game, simply click on this link and Mike Edwards from DIY Doctor will be very happy to take you on at a game.
DIY Doctor has been back in his shed!
You must have some bits of wood lying around at home too, so come on then, get creative and make them into a tree.

Have you ever noticed how much wingnuts look like Angels?
Tree houses and sheds are a few of our favourite things, this one was shared by a friend on Facebook today, so I can’t tell you where it is – if you recognise it please let us know where it is and who built it.
Even better if this is your treehouse please do get in touch and we will give you full credit for your marvelous construction.
Any of you who a regular visitors here will know our penchant for sheds, if you missed earlier shed-related news then check out our blog on the Shed of the Year Awards, and get yours up to scratch in time to enter for the 2013.
Just as a little light relief we thought we would show you what this enterprising DIY’er did to get hot water for their basin.
We would like to think we could show you this just for the ‘What the …’ value and that you would never dream of copying the design. However since this guy made it in the first place we obviously need to say, please don’t.
Don’t plug a kettle into the mains in your bathroom
Don’t drill a hole in a kettle
Don’t balance a kettle on the edge of any surface, especially not one that could be full of water
Don’t try to make an electric kettle continually boil, they switch off for a reason
Did I miss anything?
