Last Thursday, I had a great time participating as a co-host along with Home Depot for their DIH (Do it Herself) Workshop.
Participating in the free kids workshops when our sons were little was always a highlight, but I had never attended one of the Ladies Nights Out before and it was a blast. Nothing like I had it anticipated, but it far exceeded my expectations. I understand that the workshops vary from store to store based on attendance size, but I hope the excitement for these workshops catch on because it’s a great night out.
Our workshop was packed! Can you even believe how many women turned out at our location? The staff has done a wonderful job of engaging the community, but with that many women, obviously it was impossible for everyone to have a hands on experience, so we walked them through the steps of our project.
Next month, the topic is learning how to install tile and that is something I really wanted to master for my kitchen backsplash.
I put together a little video highlighting our evening and right in the middle, there’s a surprise. You won’t believe one of this store’s new traditions. It’s so fun!! (If reading by email, click on over to the blog to watch it.)
I enjoyed my partnership with Home Depot and I love what they are doing to empower women in mastering all these DIY techniques. They are definitely taking the fear out of home projects. I am thrilled to announce that Debbie T will have $100 to spend at Home Depot. Hopefully, she’ll come over to my spray paint addiction side. 🙂
And, the best part of the evening is that I am helping to raise up the next generation of Do it Herself girls.
Do you have any DIY plans for the near future? I’d love to hear about them.
That looks like it was so much fun. I wished I lived closer so I could have come. We just finished remodeling our kitchen so I think I am done with projects for awhile, but I always love seeing what others are working on.
Jen- what a fun night!! And a great turn out. Looks like everyone had a blast. Your video was cute highlighting everything.
How fun!! I always have projects for my husband to do:)
Looks like such a fun day!! Really enjoyed the video. 🙂
too fun, Jen!
I am planning on doing a tufted, upholstered headboard for our guest room…
and though it’s not on schedule until the budget rolls over for next month, I am chomping at the bit to get to it! Cannot wait to try my hand at this!
Looks like you had a great time 🙂 Loved the video!
Oh my goodness, Jen, look at you … you are one HOT MAMA!!!
What a great idea! We are always doing DIY projects and I’ve definitely learned to do some things that are really helpful to know.
What a great event! I have a garden raised bed next on my list!
Looks like so much fun! I wish they had a ladies night at my Home Depot!
