Home Depot DIH Workshop!
Home Depot has DIY Workshops! As I was surfing Facebook a couple weeks ago, Home Depot DIH Workshop came through my newsfeed with a Grilling Caddy Tool Box. It was really cool looking and I always wanted one those but I’m not very a very crafty person especially when it involves working with tools. I figured I may not use it as a grilling caddy but I can make a nice planter for my porch. So, I signed up my husband and myself.
It was scheduled to promptly start at 6:30 so we arrived at around 6:20. I guess the person that was scheduled to do the class wasn’t there so they had to pull someone else to do it. That lucky person was Amber from the garden dept. I felt kind of bad for her because she didn’t know anything about it. Luckily, there was only 3 of us, my husband, myself and one other lady.
Amber said okay, let’s go and get the supplies. We followed her so we could see where everything was located. Once we got everything, she got the tools needed from the tool rental dept. and we headed over to the corner to work.
The purpose of the class is to learn how to use the tools. What I didn’t know (and never mentioned it to my husband) was that it was a Home Depot “do it HERSELF” class! The other woman that was there with us told me and I just told her to keep to herself. 🙂
Home Depot also have co-ed workshops and kid’s workshops. Another thing that neither one of us knew, and I’m not sure where we both got the idea from, was that you don’t get to keep the project you are making. Nope! You are only there to learn how to use the tools, where items are located and what you need to make the grilling caddy.
Well, thankfully the manager was super nice and said we could each keep it because there was only 2 of us (we didn’t count my husband)!
My husband knows how to use tools but learned a lot at this hands on “DIY workshop”. There were a few things that none of knew so Amber grabbed Rocky to help us through with some of things. Good thing there were only the 2 of us because the class was supposed to end at 8:00 and we ended up kind of getting thrown out at 10:00 when they closed.
Here is a picture of me with my box but I’m going to distress it and paint it and will come back and show you when I’m done with it.
All in all, the class was fun and we learned a lot (even my husband) and I am able to work a power tool if I need to! I didn’t put in the center board or the bottle opener because I have different plans for the caddy. This is what it’s supposed to look like.
