"Rock Solid" on DIY
Episode: "Travertine Patio"
• July 2, 6:30 p.m. EST
• July 4, 8:00 a.m. EST
DIY's professsional stone-masons and cousins, Dean Marsico and Derek Stearns, work with travertine, a unique stone akin to marble, for the first time to create an elegant and stylish patio and walkway.
"I Want That" on Fine Living
Episode: "Floating Vacuum, Heated Bathtub, High-Style High Chair, Improved Stud Finder"
• July 2, 4:30 a.m. EST
• July 3, 10:30 a.m. EST
• July 3, 2:30 p.m. EST
Check out a vacuum that floats on a pocket of air and find out why this makes for a better floor cleaner. Tired of running a hot bath, only to have the water cool before making it to the tub? A new, heated bathtub keeps a hot bath hot. Plus, a new kind of stud finder instantly pinpoints the center of a stud and makes hanging heavy objects safer. And a modern, minimalist high chair could have baby sitting pretty.
