The workshops are held at every store, and offer a variety of topics ranging from home repair to tool instruction, are even building home decor projects!! Not to mention, they’re FREE, and a great place to work on your skills and meet new friends who love to DIY!

Okay so without further ado, here’s how I customized my doormat:

I first laid out the 2 x 2 balusters using 3/8-inch nuts as spacers. Once all the slats were aligned, drawing the design onto the boards was easy! From there, I drilled the holes for the ropes, cut along the lines, and then strung all the pieces together. Looking back, I probably could’ve even skipped some of the cuts and just used the contrasting stain/paint colors to highlight the design instead! Either way, I’m THRILLED with how it came out!
