Are you a do-it-yourselfer? Because I totally LOVE the idea of finding something you love for your home and creating it yourself.
While I love the idea, I was definitely not born knowing how to do most of these DIY projects I want to do.
Thankfully, The Home Depot has an incredibly fun workshop especially for women, called Do-It-Herself. Each month is a different DIY project, that you can sign up for and attend in-store.
Not last winter, but the winter before, I attended one of their Do-It-Herself workshops, making monogrammed wreaths for the door. IT WAS SO MUCH FUN!!
The Home Depot wants everyone to have the skills and confidence to be a first class do-it-yourselfer. In-store workshops are a great way to get step-by-step instructions and hands on experience learning to do simple décor and easy home improvements.
It was a chance for me to get out of the house, leave the kids behind, and just enjoy something I want to do more of!
This month’s workshop is How to Make a Paver Planter where you learn how to make a planter with step-by-step instructions from simple materials, wood and concrete pavers.
So The Home Depot asked me to try my hand at making one myself!
First off, I have to say that this is not a project I would have thought to do before, but I’m glad I did! It gave me the chance to use tools I don’t get to use often, or haven’t in a long time, and it was fun!!
I would not consider this an easy project, but it’s not hard at all either! Especially if you register for the workshop, and get that assistance!
The Home Depot is wonderful, in that they will pre-cut your wood for you. So after I bought all my supplies, I brought the wood home and put this gorgeous dark stain on it.
Some screws, power tools, and adhesive, and this is the final product!
Check out the full project and everything you need HERE. Or better yet, clear your calendar and grab your girlfriends the third Thursday of each month for The Home Depot’s DIH Workshop. Tune your DIY skills and pick up tips and advice from the pros for all of your home improvement projects.
Do-It-Herself Workshops are held monthly at all The Home Depot store locations and empower women with the skills and knowledge to take their home improvement project plans from dreams to done. Want to learn more? Register online today to attend this month’s workshop.
