Ok, ok, we know these before and after photos aren't exactly epic, but that's kind of what makes them great! . This homeowner really liked the colour of their wooden fence, but could already see some deterioration in the wood and wanted to protect it from any further weather damage. They requested our help to choose and procure the right materials that would protect the wood without changing its colour too much. Mission accomplished!! . Get a quote for your next project today!

Such a fun way to add the illusion of more space to a room! We installed this custom made mirror (not made by us) and it totally looks like a doorway into another living space! So cool! .

The laundry room (or, for many of us, the laundry closet): It can be a small space, but it doesn't have to be disorganized and cramped! . This laundry closet had minimal storage space and was just not that functional. The homeowner wanted a countertop and shelf with a place to hang clothes. Unfortunately, the stock sizes of countertops weren't wide enough to properly cover their washer and dryer. So we ended up custom making the countertop to fit the space exactly. And not only that, because we designed the countertop, we were able to provide a tidy way to pass the hoses through too. That's the benefit of a custom project! .

Summer, is that you?!? β˜€οΈπŸ‘‹ What a gorgeous day for working outside!! We always love a condo balcony, not only because they get us outside to enjoy the sunny summer temps, but they also let us keep the mess of cutting/sanding/etc. outside! Win-win! .

Our favourite projects require us to flex our creative, fabrication muscles. This super modern custom home in East York needed some custom handrails as a finishing touch. We worked with the client to design, fabricate, and install these stunners (if we do say so ourselves!)

This client had a rip in their screen door. This is no big deal over the winter months, but now that the weather is starting to warm up, we wanted to ensure that this client could open their door to let the air in without letting the bugs in!

Working in the shop on some custom bookshelves today. This project is a fun one because the walls of the room these will be installed in meet at funky angles, so each shelf is just a little bit different.

Two toilets, one day. It really is the little things that make a big difference! Something as simple as upgrading a toilet to one with a more modern shape and size can totally change the look and feel of a space.

Our client had these sliding barn doors on site that they had taken down from another location, but they were way too gorgeous not to be used or displayed somehow. So we booked them up with this faux doorway/wall hanging piece.πŸ‘Œ . We love recycling/upcycling old things to make new ones! It actually makes for some of the most fun projects! .

This client had recently completed a DIY replacement of the caulking in their shower. After realizing that there were some gaps (which can ultimately lead to water getting in and causing mould and other troubles), they called us to remove and replace the caulking in this shower stall. . We are totally in support of DIY projects!! πŸ› οΈπŸ’ͺ It makes so much sense to save on the projects that you can do yourself. But sometimes, it's nice to know that you can call on a (Fix-It) friend to bring the materials and expertise to get the job done! . #fixitfriend   #handyman   #toronto   #downtowntoronto   #highpark   #caulking   #remove   #replace   #shower   #bathtub   #friend   #friendly   #professional   #expertise  

This project started out with a trapdoor in the floor that led to the basement. The trapdoor was removed and a half wall was built with the ultimate goal of providing a safe, aesthetically pleasing staircase down to the basement. The half wall was topped with poplar stained in a walnut finish to go with the floor and paint colours. Oh, and no staircase is complete without a handrail, so we added one of those too! . We're able to take all sorts of pieces and spaces and transform them into something beautiful and functional. If you've got an idea for a project, get in touch! We'd love to discuss it with you!

No more forgetting to lock the door! Thanks to this new Yale lock, keys (and worries) are a thing of the past for the Cabbagetown BIA. This lock provides the opportunity for unlocking via smartphone proximity, touchscreen keypad, and traditional key. And best of all, there's an auto-lock feature, so they'll never have to remember to lock the door again! How amazing is that?! .

The manager of this engineering firm needed privacy for sensitive conversations and this sliding door was just not providing it. We were asked to remove the existing sliding door and reframe the opening to accept a conventional swinging door with a modern look. Sometimes it can be challenging to work on these types of projects alone, but our handyman is a pro at finding ways to get the job done (hence all the clamps and multiple levels). In the end, this door looks like it's always been there! . We are all about creating spaces that are functional and aesthetically appealing!

This project was a fun one! The client needed a drying table/cabinet (think Kindergarten drying racks where every painting has its own shelf). They wanted lots of shelves for drying art and also a few larger spots for drying super large prints. We worked with the client to ensure that this piece gave them all the features that they needed and fit in their work space. This piece was super large, so it was built, assembled and disassembled in our workshop and then reassembled on site. We also included wheels, so the client could move the table to maximize the space in the room, as necessary. All that's left is for the shelves to be put in! . We love creating these custom pieces!

fbf Flashing it back to summer 2017 when we worked with this client to bring their backyard back to life. After a fence repair that we completed, this homeowner had a vision and decided to continue with the backyard beautification process. . The backyard space get didn't get a ton of sun and, therefore, it was tricky to keep the grass looking lovely (or growing at all). The client had a design and materials in mind, and we worked together to put that plan into action. Edging stones, artificial grass, and a little sweat equity have this backyard looking like the cover of a gardening magazine! . Have you got a backyard that could use some upgrades or additions this spring? We can do that! Get in touch!

Ikea furniture assembly is not for the faint of heart! But have no fear, we've got you covered!! We take Ikea assembly to the next level to ensure that your furniture items are in it for the long haul.

The walls in this hallway were always getting banged and scuffed. After a few drywall repairs and new paint applications, we worked with the client to provide a more sustainable, protective option. We installed these rigid vinyl sheets on the bottom half of the walls where the majority of the damage was taking place. And now ... no more dings and scuffs and, best of all, no more costly repairs! Oh, and swipe to the end to see how we got a little crafty with the leftover vinyl! (Spoiler: there won't be any more dings in the wall from the office chairs!) .

Our client had already turned part of this wall into a whiteboard using dry erase paint. They contacted us to create some custom trim, so that people wouldn't accidentally write on the non-whiteboard part of the wall. We took the client's specs and brought the plans to life. We even added a custom groove to hold the markers - genius! Oh, and did we mention that this whiteboard spans the whole wall? And there's not a seam to be seen! .

Sometimes, masking can take longer than the actual painting, but it can often save a lot of work (and mess)! Before applying any masking tape or plastic, we suggest cleaning the areas with a damp cloth because the tape doesn't stick as well (or at all) to dusty or dirty surfaces and then you'll end up with bleeding. For this project, we wanted to protect these built in cabinets and laminate floors from any drips or splatters, so we used masking plastic as well. It may seem like a lot of work, but the finished product is definitely worth it! Stay tuned for the before and after of this space! #fixitfriend   #handyman   #toronto   #queenwest   #painting   #commercialpainting   #masking   #taping   #attentiontodetail  

This rolling (library) ladder was one of our most recent custom fabrication projects and the finished product came out looking pretty incredible, if we do say so ourselves! Our client had an idea in mind, and we worked together to create a design that fit their description and matched the space perfectly. We've come across ladder kits online, but Jeremy took this project to the next level. He used materials that made this ladder super strong and safe and that's not all! He also hand turned the top spindle of this ladder. Now that's a personal touch! We love going the extra mile for our clients to ensure that they get what they're looking for. Because at the end of the day, we just want you to be happy!

We transformed this alcove by first repairing and painting the wall and then by installing prefabricated crates and a custom coat rack (made by us!) to create a custom coat room. This alcove, joining two larger spaces, had some beautiful characteristics like an exposed brick wall and wood beam ceiling, but they weren't being adequately showcased. We worked with the designers to bring their vision to fruition and took this alcove to the next level of gorgeous organization space!

Our client is a clothing bank that helps newcomers to Canada start their new lives with a new wardrobe, along with career coaching and training. We built these clothing racks out of steel pipe for their store area to replace the old racks that were in disrepair with sturdy new ones made from steel pipe (designed and built by us). A while back we posted a video demonstrating that the matching steel pipe change rooms we built for this same client were strong enough to do chin ups on. (Check it out in our profile!) It's safe to say that these clothing racks are just as strong! #fixitfriend   #handyman   #toronto   #eastyork   #clothingracks   #store   #steelpipe   #pipefurniture   #customdesign   #customsolutions   #strong   #sturdy   #safe  

Is no hardware the new hardware? We think there's a time and place for both, but you can be the judge! This client's kitchen boasted all sorts of clean lines, but sometimes no hardware is just not super functional. We used a cabinet hardware jig to ensure these handles got installed perfectly! And, in our opinion, the end result makes this kitchen look even more high-end.

When your bathroom has limited floor space, a great way to add valuable storage space without making the room feel too cramped is to add shelves, especially in areas that are wasted space like over the toilet. Our client had purchased these shelves that they really liked and went perfectly in the space, but unfortunately they just weren't the right size. We trimmed the shelves for a custom fit and voila!

We were contacted when the old white wire shelf in this closet couldn't handle the weight and fell down from poor installation. We worked with our client to find a solution that fit like a glove and offered a much more durable result. We custom designed a shelf to fit the angled wall and installed a rod with a heavy duty hanging capacity. Because who doesn't need more storage?!

Did you know that bleachers got their name because the wooden benches (which are generally uncovered and unprotected) get bleached by the sun?? While these bleachers might not get bleached by the sun, at least users will be able to safely make their way up and down. We collaborated with the client in order to come up with a design for this handrail that suited the space perfectly. We think the end result is pretty stunning, as far as handrails on bleachers go.

This city has some amazing homes, condos, and lofts! But sometimes there's just not enough room to store all your stuff. We worked with this client to create a unique storage opportunity in their loft conversion with existing space that wasn't previously usable. We built out the tops of the existing closets to make use of the beautiful high ceilings and to create storage space for items, such as luggage, etc., that aren't used that often. We ensured that the finished product fit seamlessly with the existing design in the loft and when we finish this custom project it looked like it had always been built that way.

Who knew IKEA could look so high end just by adding a fine spray finish?! We were commissioned by a well-known international perfume brand to assemble and paint these small cabinets that were used to hold make-up at their pop-up shop.

What you might not know is just how much you can fit into a Honda Fit! And while it was super practical and it fit a ton of stuff, we got to the point where we just needed more space. Enter the Nissan NV200! This sweet new ride is so much easier to get things in and out of and still offers the ability to get into tight spaces including condo parking garages. Stay tuned for the finished product! #fixitfriend   #handyman   #toronto   #cabbagetown   #hondafit   #nissan   #nv200   #newride   #workvehicle   #vinylgrapics  

Working in the High Park area today doing some beautiful poplar trim work. Sometimes, especially in older houses, we have to improvise and customize off the shelf trim to match with existing trim. We love this type of work for the challenge of making the puzzle pieces and getting them to fit together. It takes some finagling, but the end results are worth it! Let's do a project at your place! #fixitfriend   #handyman   #toronto   #highpark   #trim   #poplar   #woodwork   #precision   #attentiontodetail   #customsolutions  

Our client had these diamond acoustic tiles on the walls in their space, but they needed a change. We removed the tiles (along with heaps of adhesive) and skim coated the walls to ensure they were smooth. When it came time to paint, we realized that the paint provided by the client was not the correct colour. Jeremy's quick thinking and problem-solving abilities kicked in and, believe it or not, he found a can of the correct paint colour in a closet on site. Crisis averted! We finished the walls with a two-tone paint scheme, as specified by the company's design department, using a laser level to ensure the line was perfectly level across the whole room. It's the little details that make a big difference! #fixitfriend   #handyman   #toronto   #downtowntoronto   #breather   #rentalworkspace   #drywall   #paint   #twotone   #laserlines   #problemsolving   #transformation  

Sometimes all it takes is a little TLC to make those old things look new again! These steps had seen better days, but with a little sanding, prepping, and painting they almost look brand new again! We love these types of projects because it's a huge return on investment for our customers!
