Last night I attended the Do-It-Herself workshop at Home Depot. I had hoped to attend the Hanson concert at the Depot in Salt Lake, but for some reason I couldn't find anybody else in Utah that wanted to go to the concert as badly as I did. And I just wasn't up for going alone.
So I went to Home Depot. I signed up for the class online and went to the class early so that I could be one of the first 30 attendees, thus securing myself a door prize. Well, I needn't have worried. I was the only Do-It-Herself-er there. I won the door prize by a long shot.
I went to the class hoping to get some ideas for redoing our outdated bathrooms and kitchen. And that's exactly what I got. Only, instead of just listening to somebody spout of project ideas and blah blah blah, I got a tour of the store where I not only got the project ideas but I also got personalized step by step instructions. Because I was the only dang student.
I had the chance to say "And I was thinking of painting my banister..." and then I was shown exactly what products I would need and how I should do it. And then I could say "And I'm also thinking that I would like a floor like this in my kitchen. How would I install that?" And bang! boom! they told me how to do it.
Now if I could just win a sweepstakes or something so I'd have the funds for all these projects I now "know" how to do...
