Tim and I's goal had always been to help others make their home a place where they can celebrate their backgrounds and encourage their dreams. When possible we love to take on a client's room and take the process from start to finish. However, we know that hiring us is not always a possibility. We also know there are plenty of you who love to be creative on your own and could just use a little guidance or instruction when it comes to building certain skills!
Well, Tim and I are excited to help you do just that! Our workshops will be a one day event in which you will learn all sorts of DIY tips. Tim and I have put a lot of thought into the topics that we would cover and the types of projects we would talk about, but we want to hear from you. Below is a list of possible topics/projects that we are considering. We would love, love, love it if you would comment and let us know the issues that peak your interest the most.
- Painting/Staining Techniques
- Upholstery Basics
- The Process of Designing an entire room (Kara's methods)
- Learning about and trying new products
- Furniture Building Basics
- Handling Basic Power Tools
- Handling more advanced/specific power tools (welder, scroll saw,
- Accessorizing Rules
- My thought process for reinventing objects
- Electric- wiring ceiling lights, making lamps
Of course feel free to add any topics that we have left out.
Our workshops will be VERY "hands on" and we will practice each topic we discuss. We even have plans for attendees to be able to choose a project that they will complete from start to finish and be able to take home with them from the workshop. We also are thinking that we will have different types of workshops diving into different issues.
We are planning for our first workshop to be in May. We will finalize a date soon! Don't forget to tell us what topics you would like to see in our workshops!
