Disclosure: This post on the Do It Herself Workshop is sponsored by The Home Depot, but all opinions and experiences are my own. Please see below for additional information.
Picture this, DIY demonstrations, hands-on activities with 100 new girlfriends, refreshments, a live DJ, and Scandal trivia.
Yes, Scandal trivia. And it all took place last Thursday night at The Home Depot‘s Do-It-Herself workshop.
As mentioned before, The Home Depot offers free monthly do-it-herself workshops just for women designed to equip and empower them to tackle home improvement projects no matter the experience level. Last week’s workshop included a faux finish demonstration lead by The Glidden Company followed by an opportunity for the attendees to get in on the fun.
The ladies used a series of tools from rollers to sponges to bristle brush to practice making metallic, leather, and suede finishes! More than half of the attendees I interviewed had never heard of the Do-It-Herself Workhops and vowed to return with friends for the next event.
So eager to learn, there was hardly a seat left at this event.
During the practice sessions, radio personality Carol Blackmon (also a home improvement newbie) hosted a slew of giveaways. Before the event ended, we were treated to Scandal trivia in honor of another Thursday night favorite.
There were some bonafide prizes including this autographed photo of Scandal’s lead actress Kerry Washington.
You can also catch video from media mavens at CocoaFab.com who were on site conducting interviews and documenting all the fun.
Ok, so you missed it but I know you won’t make the same mistake twice.
The next Do-It-Herself Workshop is Thursday, November 20 from 6:00pm-8pm. Get into the holiday spirit by learning how to CREATE A HOLIDAY MARQUEE.
