As I share design and DIY home improvement projects, I often hear the reaction "you're so amazing at all of that stuff" or "that's so great, but you already know what you're doing..."
And I hate to argue with them- but they're wrong! Yes, I learned a lot about home improvement and using power tools from my dad growing up (he's a mechanical engineer), but the truth is that I learn a lot of these skills as I go! He never taught me how to add trim to cabinets, tile a backsplash, or hang a chandelier.
In the next few posts, I want to walk you through some of the basics of Design + DIY (and Drills!) that I rely on when I'm working on projects around my own home. I'll break them down in video- here (and over on IGTV) in short 10-minute chats so you can listen in when you have some me-time. I promise, it will be worth it!
If you have grabbed the *new and improved* Design + DIY Handbook you've seen this update- but I'm guessing it's going to be new to most! We're getting started with the basics- your TOOLKIT. I share the resource, as well as launch my new IGTV channel, right here!
This video walks through where to find the toolkit, as well as chats about why some of the items are so important to me- feel free to go straight to the source, though! The Design + DIY toolkit is a growing and evolving shopping list that I am continually tweaking as I discover new favorite products or find useful supplies that I think you will really appreciate having in your own home.
The Toolkit is the very first resource included in my Design + DIY Handbook, so be sure to grab your copy, let me know what you think, and check back each time I share a new project to see if there are new essentials you can add to your own kit!
