I made a little mention of this yesterday on Instagram… I’ve got some super fun news to share (and nope, I’m not pregnant)! But, I am partnering with The Home Depot to host 4 DIY workshops this year! True! Little ol’ me will be teaching peeps how to build things at The Home Depot! First up, is this super awesome vertical planter to spruce up your yard!
For the first workshop, I’ll be at The Home Depot in South Austin at 1200 Home Depot Blvd on April 11th. Come build with me, I would love to meet you! This was my store back when we lived in our condo, so I’m pretty excited to host my first workshop there. Y’all know I love me some Home Depot, we have one within walking distance to our house and the manager at our store even has a son who is just a few days older than Maxwell. We go to buy project supplies and talk babies. That’s normal, right?! I’ve partnered with The Home Depot on numerous projects including our bathroom remodel, laundry room makeover, and Celebration of Service events in Austin and Houston.
I’m going to show y’all how to bring a little life to your backyard with this bad boy! Oh and the planter was designed by the ever awesome Ben Uyeda of HomeMade Modern.
The planter I’m building for our backyard is going to be a little different than the one in the picture, but that’s what I love about building things yourself, you can make to fit your needs perfectly! Only need 5 planters? Easy! Want to make it longer? Taller? No big deal! Paint it? Stain it? You can do whatever the heck you want! My planter is currently in the works, but we (Andy!) did do some major bush ripping out last weekend to make room for it. Here is the backyard when we moved in:
Here it is after Andy ripped out the first row of bushes:
And here’s where the vertical planter will live. It’s crazy how much more space it give us! The plan is to install the vertical planter right where you see the 2 plastic baseballs, and then fill that area with play ground rocks. Maybe? Definitely fill it with something other than dirt and weeds, ha! Suggestions of fill material are welcome!
So, here are the workshop deets:
- In-store workshops offer demonstrations with clear, step-by-step instructions for making easy home improvements to your home and yard. The workshop can give you the confidence boost you need to become an awesome DIY-er!
- During this workshop, you can learn the skills that you need to create the fun vertical planter, including how to safely and properly operate power tools, as well as how to calculate measurements, and follow a design plan. Y’all, sawing stuff is fun. Just sayin’.
- DIY Workshops are held on Saturdays and Sundays throughout each month.
- I will be in-store co-hosting this workshop on April 11, so please let us know you’ll be attending and REGISTER HERE!
Get out the ol’ calendar, tell all of your friends, and mark down April 11th for a DIY workshop at The Home Depot!
