Do It Herself Workshop & $100 Home Depot Giveaway

Jul25

Post written in sponsored partnership with Home Depot.

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been blowing up my instagram (jenschmidt_beautyandbedlam) and facebook feeds with all the spray painting projects that I’ve been tackling.

That has meant multiple trips to my local building supply stores to replenish my DIY stock. As you enter Home Depot,  have you noticed the large “workshop project” boards?

When our kids were young, they enjoyed their free kids workshops for years, but Home Depot offers  FREE weekly workshops to learn just about everything when it comes to tackling home projects and repairs yourself. Honestly, I really want to attempt to add subway tile to my kitchen back splash and just noticed they are even hosting  a tutorial for tiling.  It might be a sign. 🙂

I’ve partnered with Home Depot for their upcoming FREE Do-It-Herself Workshop, and I am excited to co-host a dose of DIY time on August 15th from 6:30pm to 8:00pm EST at my local store. I’d love for you to join me.

We are going to learn how to make that adorable homemade chore chart above. With clear instructions, plenty of time for questions and answers and a wonderful demonstration, Do-It-Herself Workshops will get our creative juices flowing. Plus, it’s another great idea to add to my 50 Uses for Mason Jars Love post.

Not only that, but join us on August 1 at 8:00 PM for a one-hour Twitter Party with special guest, Martha Stewart,to spice up your family chores, and trust me, I need the encouragement. I’ll be tweeting away.

In honor of our upcoming August 15th DIH Workshop, Home Depot has given me a $100 HD gift card to give away.

Do you know how many cans of spray paint I can purchase with that? Get excited!!

Register here for this fun  Do-It-Herself Workshop at your local Home Depot.

    I should sign up for the floor and wall tile class. They actually have it at my local store coming up (we live in a small town, so not everything is here). I have a LARGE amount of hideous mauve/pink/gold accented tile along with mauve grout in our master bathroom. Ugh, ugh, ugh.
