One renovation project’s trash is another project’s treasure!

At the beginning of our 12th season in September, Rach revealed her brand-new set kitchen, which was renovated by our friends, HGTV’s "The Cousins" (A.K.A. Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri).

And when all was said and done, the dynamic duo had lots of leftover material. So naturally, they visited again to show us what to do with it!

"Material’s expensive," Anthony says. "So when you order it, you always order with waste, because install creates waste."

"So if you have enough leftover," he continues, "you can make some really cool projects."

And that, they did!

With leftover floor tile, "The Cousins" actually created a headboard right in our studio.

How cool does it look?!
 


Now, before you start the install, Anthony advises, figure out how much square footage of leftover tile you have. If you have enough to start the headboard at the floor, wonderful. But if not, don’t fret! A trim piece will come in handy (like the one in the photo above).

Just glue or silicone the tiles in place and secure the trim pieces around the tile with a nail gun. Voila!
