“Good Morning America” meteorologist Ginger Zee and her husband, TV personality Ben Aaron may be celebs, but even they aren’t spared from the tight living quarters most New Yorkers face.
The New York apartment they share with their 1-year-old son Adrian is so small that they eat meals on the couch and keep kitchen items in a hallway chest due to lack of storage. So they decided to upgrade their living space by renovating a suburban home, and they’re chronicling their journey on DIY’s “Renovation Realities: Ben & Ginger.”
Ginger says that she has experience with remodeling, but it’s all new to Ben. “I’m familiar, I know what the tools are called,” she jokes.
“Ben, on the other hand, he had seriously never touched a hammer. So you’re taking a guy that is so New York City and putting him out in the suburbs and saying, ‘Go for it.’”
Sounds fun, right?
When they first purchased their home, they found piles of junk in the yard. Ginger decided to make the best of some of the items she found, turning bottles and a few pieces of wood into a beautiful vase.
She’s showing you how to make one yourself in the video above! (Also, watch to see Ben go a little off-script...)
