Kimberly as shown in the video, removing the washers may require a little persuasion (a putty knife). and reporting back a year later... It still looks awesome, maybe a little better because I painted. I stand behind this fix 100%.

super tip!
 
You can also mix Peppermint Essential Oil (http://amzn.to/1vDFqoq) and water in a spray bottle and spray around doors and along the edge of the floor in your garage and it will repel mice and spiders

nice technique Jeff with both the vid and the project... might be good to point out that you should allow pt to age before attempting a standard finish on it. 6 months or so. (your retaining wall was obviously a little older than that.) and honestly I see something like this in my future. thanks.  ~jb

+jb bartkowiak good point. If the water beads on the pressure treated wood it's too ripe per say to stain or poly. I have to let this aging process happen on a few projects I did earlier in the summer. Thanks buddy :)

There's "bored" formed concrete and then there's "Board Formed Concrete" ... this is about the latter.

got a chance to do a quick review of +GAF Roofing 's latest website. Interesting to see a strong focus on woman. All around - some great tips & tools which make picking a new roof easier.
The benefits of new roofing are felt almost instantly, but selecting a stylish one will yield returns for many years come. A look @ GAF's newest site.

I originally met the team from Studio M through design excursions to Brizo's Fashion Week in NYC and to the GE Monogram Experience in Kentucky. I have since followed their work through outlets like Houzz and Facebook, as well as via their highly-stylized talkDesign newsletter. I continually marvel at their consistent ability to create beautifully elegant spaces. Prominent bloggers too, Studio M's Eric Miller has both shared his expertise on our blog, but was also gracious enough to recently host a 3 part series I had written. As a writer, editor, social media go to, I'd recommend snatching up any opportunity to work with Eric or this firm.
