Do-It-Herself Workshop (and giveaway!)

Hey all! I am so glad it’s Friday!! We had some ice accumulation here last night and I was hoping for a snow day for the kiddo, but we made due with a delay (and sleeping in). ;) I cannot wait for a weekend of relaxing and puttering around!

Last night I was honored to co-lead the Do-It-Herself workshop at a local Home Depot and let me tell you, I was SO impressed with how they put it together! The set up was just adorable – since this month’s project was Pinterest-inspired, they pulled ideas from there to create some fun vignettes.

This was a DIY workshop, and I will get to that more in a minute, but just loved how cute the set up was so I have to brag on them for that first. They pulled out their stock of outdoor furniture for the audience so it was comfy and colorful:

Brilliant idea!

The sign-in booth was just so cute – everything was made from pallets and wood they had at the store (hellooo Pinterest!!):

Don’t you love the pennants they made from scrapbook paper?

They had super cute bags with goodies for each attendee too:

I don’t know if you can see my apron there, but one of the staff members painted mine just for me and it is SO CUTE. She used colors from my blog and it is precious – I love it.

OK, I know I should be talking about the DIY, but the food table was amazing too:

pallet table

More pennants, more pallet tables, and I LOVED the idea of lining the barrels with lawn bags and using them for the beverages. Seriously? So fun!

The workshop leader Janice did a great job of sharing the process of tiling a frame around a mirror. They had smaller ones there for people to try out, but this is a great idea for those basic builder mirrors so many of us have hanging in our bathrooms too.

These were my favorites of the night:

tiling around a mirror

I was obsessed with that smaller one with the small tiles – it had such a pretty beachy vibe.

Janice shared a tip she uses for smaller projects like this that I would never have thought to do. She just puts on gloves and then smooshes the grout in between the tiles with her hands. Loved that – it’s messy no matter how you do it but that makes it even easier!

I think my favorite “tool” of the whole project was the tile setting mat – it’s just sticky stuff you put down instead of mortar. Way less mess and so much easier! (I’m Vanna Whiting it here):

I’m planning on using it in the laundry room so I’ll let you know how it works.

The ladies (and some gentleman) got to shop for their own materials as well – they had some beautiful mosaic tiles to pick from:

I found a perfect one for the basement bathroom, now I just need to decide where to put it. :)

It was a fun night and we had a great turn out, especially with the weather we had coming in. Hope everyone got home safe and sound!

Thanks to Janice for leading the workshop and Celeste for her help along the way and beautiful ideas for the set up:

Don’t forget – the workshops are offered every month on the third Thursday and are free to attend. Next month is how to install dimmers – one of my very favorite things to do in our house. It would be great to see how to do it first hand if you haven’t done one yourself. (Go here to find out more.)

  8. The tile as a frame around the mirror is a FABULOUS idea. I was thinking about framing one of my bathroom mirrors and I really like the mosaics.
    We just bought a condo in town and are sprucing up the home we raised our kids in to sell, so I have spent a lot of time and $$ on home improvement lately. I would love the help of a gift card! I could spend it on paint, or mosaic tile, or a new backsplash for the kitchen, or replacement faucets for the master bath, or new carpet, or.....lots of things!! :)

  21. So many choices of what to do with $100 from Home Depot!! I think I would buy materials to do my laundry room: tile the floor, paint the walls, maybe some beadboard, and cabinets above the washer and dryer. I ♥ Home Depot!! What I wouldn't do with it is let my husband buy more outdoor Christmas lights.

  51. I have so many things that I want to do! We desperately need new carpet upstairs and I want to do some tile or laminate in part of the upstairs. I would get some new, pretty bathroom lights instead of the ugly bar ones. And I am starting a project using lights behind a canvas and painting the front of the canvas, so I need paint and some tools for that. I would really like to tile the kids mirror in their bathroom, too. Loved the Home Depot project! I could go on and on, but that is a start!

  58. That workshop looked so cute! I'd love to have $100 to spend at Home Depot. I go there so much! I originally saw this mosaic mirror frame idea in Martha Stewart's LIving mag. I had a mirror in one of my bathrooms that went from wall to wall over the vanity and I wanted to do that tile frame. I figured out that I wanted to remove the mirror, have it cut down a bit, and use it in a portrait style instead of the landscape orientation as it was. After a lot of phone calls to glass places and several OUTRAGEOUS estimates of as much as $200 to cut 8 inches off the mirror, I finally found a reputable business that did the cut for me for $6.50. I added the mosaic tile to the border of the mirror and also added lights on the sides of the mirror and a matching light above. Wish I knew how to send you a picture. I am so pleased with the result. It definitely made the bathroom beautiful.

  59. Thanks for the giveaway! I'd buy paint with my winnings.

  70. We just moved into a new house....it needs ALOT of work!!! Paint, peeling wallpaper and removing yucky carpet are the easy fixes! Leveling floors, remodeling bathrooms and kitchen, not so much...but it all needs to be done! This is our third remodel and hoping third time is the charm ;) With four kids and two pets this time..we need to call it good! :) So, after that ramble...I'll say...I would use it frugally for as much as possible!!!

  78. I am definitely doing this project OK n my bathroom but first we have to repair flood damage from our neighbour sewer backing up into our home. We were away for a few days :/ They are connected to our septic tank!!?? Our floors have buckled and flooring has been ripped out. It would be wonderful to have a gift card to put towards repairs as its hard to craft around such a mess :-) lauriesatgmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  79. Oh gosh Sarah, which project? Like choose a favorite? Do one at a time? Hahahahahaha... that will probably never happen in my lifetime. I STILL need to caulk and paint those built in bookshelves I put in the office. I mean, they're painted - mostly. Because I couldn't stand them not painted at all. But they need to be made nice. Caulk, paint, decorate with the library markers I got at a barn sale.

    And I'm in the process of building a bed, I'm planning a huge built in with a twin or full sized window seat and bookshelves and cabinets in the giant alcove in my daughter's bedroom. Honestly, the thing is nearly as big as the guest room. And I need a backsplash. Dire need. I'm not even kidding - it's still builder flat paint. Yuch! Plus I am trying to dream up, design, and DIY the coolest island ever built. In all that free time you have you should help me with this island dreaming/designing. :)

    I'm so thrilled you are opening up the world of Home Depot and DIY to so many women. I don't think you get to realize how inspiring you are. There are so many things I do now because of you. Or things I am going to do. It's you, Miss Mustard Seed, and Ana White = my trifecta of girl power! Thank you.

  117. This gives me some motivation that I am seriously lacking/avoiding in the master bathroom. The plain builders grade mirror has slight chips from the previous owner and needs some major help. Thinking the tile might just solve that issue and give the entire room a much needed facelift!!!! Hope I win!!!

  124. I love the optimism you bring to those of us just learning how to diy. Those tiles (I love the beachy looking small ones too) need to cover the top of my deck table at our cottage. So, that's how I would spend the gift card1 Thanks again-henries33 at att dot net.

  125. I have a light switch that needs a dimmer, as well as some light fixtures that need to be replaced in my bathroom. A HD giftcard would sure come in handy! Thanks for the giveaway!

  126. Love Home Depot workshops. My husband and I attended one when we decided to do a small mosaic tile project on our bathtub, so helpful. We used the tile setting mats and it was so easy and a big time saver instead of using mortar. What would I do with $100 in Home Depot...man the possibilities are endless! I would probably look at some new hardware for our kitchen cabinets first or paint for our smurf blue bathroom!

  133. So many projects, so little time... or money! With $100 I'd probably start with paint to re-paint my mom's room and sunscreen film to re-cover her sliding door to provide some privacy.

  150. I love the mirror. I'm thinking I would probably purchase a sprayer for painting and however much I could squeeze out for a compressor too. I need one for furniture which I think would look nicer with a spray finish.

    Thanks for blogging!
