Kathie Lee & Hoda: Creating Style With Your Old Stuff
Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb are joined in the studio by Frank Fontana, author of Frank Fontana’s Dirty Little Secrets of Design. He will be sharing tips for the hoarders out there to turn that old stuff you have around the house into decorative pieces in your house such as how to make a Mason Jar Chandelier, a Bike Rim Kitchen Pot Hanger, a Guitar Coat Hanger, a iPad Picture Frame Holder and a Holiday Chandelier.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: Mason Jar Chandelier
First Frank Fontana creates a mason jar chandelier. To make this, you weave lights through the bike rim and then attach lights to the rim using zip ties. Yo can then screw the base of the light into the mason jar. To make the jars more fancy, you can use a stain glass spray paint to add more design to it.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: Bike Rim Kitchen Pot Hanger
The next project: Bike Rim Kitchen Pot Hanger. To start, Frank Fontana takes a wood edge banding and adds that to the inside of the bike rim as an embellishment. He then screws three small holes through bike rim and then attaches eye bolts through holes with nuts. Frank Fontana then attaches chains to the eye bolts and then the pans are ready to be hung.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: Holiday Chandelier
The next project: Holiday Chandelier. This is a great way to put those old holiday wreaths to use. Frank Fontana adds three pieces of decorative wire to hang. He then mounts a platter onto center of wreath. After mounted, he places battery-powered candles on platter and it is ready to hang.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: Guitar Coat Hanger
The next project: Guitar Neck Coat Hanger. Put that old guitar your child is not using anymore. Frank Fontana removes the strings from the guitar and cleans it. He then screws four coat hangers into the neck of the guitar. He then lightly sands the surface of the guitar and applies chalkboard paint. It is then ready to hang on the wall or entry way.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: iPad Picture Frame Holder
The last project: iPad Picture Frame Holder. Frank Fontana attaches two velcro strips in back of frame. He then attaches a piano hinge on the back bottom of frame. He makes a rectangle storage box out of scrap wood to place the frame on and it is ready to hold your iPad.
