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.)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh man where would I start!? Since we rent, it would have to be something that I could take with me. I love the idea of tiling a mirror though!

    ReplyDelete
  28. With a $100 Home Depot card I would purchase paint for my bedroom and finally after 5 years paint over my multi colored walls. Years ago I was in the process of deciding what color I wanted to paint our walls and slapped 2 different colors on them on top of the existing color. Then I had back to back pregnancies and priorities changed and 5 years later I still have 3 colors on my walls. It's not very relaxing to be in my bedroom. I enjoy following you on Facebook and thank you for the chance to win this card.

    My email is brandee_eagles at hotmail dot com

  29. I'd use the gift card to fix up a nursery for our first wee one! I'm in need of paint, some trim, curtain hardware and organizational items!

  32. On the very top of my to-do list is retiling our master bathroom using groutable peel and stick tiles.

  33. I would get supplies to repaint our baseboards. The contractor thinned the paint too much, and it's chipping off everywhere. So frustrating!

    -guest bedroom
    -storage room
    -music room
    -salon (my hair cutting chair is in there)
    and in the near future we are planning on having it be a nursery.

Please, pick me oh DIY gods.... Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I would get tile to put beneath our front and back doors. For some reason, the builder ran the carpet right up to both doors, and it gets NASTY! We are working on paying off medical debt right now, so we can't afford to replace all the carpet yet, but we will someday! I love the tile you used in the laundry room. We might eventually tile our bathroom floors with that. Love your blog! catchincurlz {at} aol {dot} com

  74. Wowza, great giveaway! I wish you could be around for some of the HD Workshops in my area!
    This gift card would be amazing to win; we still have a planking project ahead of us. Planking the fireplace wall (and possibly tile the hearth) would be really well subsidized with such a gift card! Love your blog, Sarah!

    And, I am living in the US (the server stands in Germany though), and my email is puppe at verizon dot com

  75. I'd use the gift card for much-needed landscaping!

    I started on it 7, yes SEVEN years ago, and did not finish. Yes, I am very ashamed. ha!

    ReplyDelete

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  79. What a fun event!

    I would definitely use the gift card towards a Kreg Jig. Its been on the wish list for a year and a half now and I would love to get one to use to build a new coffee table and some nightstands. And a desk for my husband.

  95. I would paint! We rent an older home and the owners didn't paint before we moved in. We didn't have much of a choice b/c it was the cheapest/nicest place we could find that would accept pets so we snatched it up without thinking. Now a few months into looking at the scratched up stairwell and walls has finally gotten to me. I could really use this!

  119. everytime i see a pin on pinterest about putting the tiles around a builder mirror, i think "gosh, i could get my husband to do it..." but huh. i could really do it myself. i'm handy. and with $100, i COULD do it... no finagling the budget to come up with extra cash!

    ReplyDelete
  120. I wanted to attend the workshop, but when I looked for it at my local Home Depot, I don't think it was available.

    ReplyDelete
  121. What an awesome idea from Home Depot! If I won the gift card, I'd use it to update our powder room, which still has 1980s wallpaper and hunter green cornice board. Yikes!

  132. I wish I could have got on my private plane and flown from Wisconsin to be there but I don't have a private plane:) With this gift card I would re-do my laundry room (beat up and cheap) floor.

  134. Oh, I'll definitely have to check it out. (And I probably keep the Home Depot near me in business just by my paint purchasing alone.)

  135. Boy I sure could use a $100 gift card from Home Depot. I could think of a bazillion projects I could use it for. Paint for the living room and dining room or new bamboo or roman shades for those rooms. Could use some new lamps shades too. Hope I win! Thanks for the chance to enter.

  136. We are currently trying to finish our basement- working on installing shelves, finishing the flooring and putting the walls up, so this is what a gift card would go towards. Thank you.

  160. Home Depot has the cabinet hardware I want to beautify my dressers and bedside tables in my bedroom. Problem is I need 36 of them which comes out to just under $100. I'm focusing on our bedroom this year since both of our girls' rooms are done and it would help me get it one more step closer to completion. Then again $100 at home depot would be great to use toward paint. We only use the paint from Home Depot.

  171. That gift card would be helpful for SO many projects! We are currently renovating our 'laundry room' (previously a room with a washer, dryer & one wire shelf). After that is our office/library...currently filled with 'leftover' furniture to set the computer, printer, etc. on...SO not pretty. Then there's the sunroom...the list goes on!

  180. I have a back yard that needs a lot of attention this year and $100 would be a great start! I am thinking of sod and raised garden beds, plants around our pond and new deck furniture...

    ReplyDelete
  181. Ooo pick me pick me! I can think of a bunch of things to do, but I love the idea of using the small glass tiles on the giant builder mirror in the girls bathroom. It's so...plain and dull, a tile border would really spice it up.

    ReplyDelete

  191. We just bought our first home in November, so I can think of many things I could us it on BUT the two that would be a toss up would be either a matching, towel rod, hand towel ring set (husband currently hangs his towel over the shower doors. I hate that) OR a garage door opener, so I can finally park the car in the garage. :)
