My kids have been attending The Home Depot kids workshops for years, before the twins were born Jay was making his woodcarver grandpa happy by building wood projects … in fact, we have a bird feeder hanging in our backyard that he made years ago, and our toolbox was a Jay made Home Depot project too.

So you have no idea how excited I am that The Home Depot offer Do-It-Herself workshops for women now too. I was invited to attend one earlier this week during the Grand Re-Opening celebrations of The Home Depot (Genesee store in San Diego).

Home Depot Genesee - Do-It-Herself Workshops
The workshop was great. We were shown how to build an Adirondack Chair.

Not only that, but at the end of the evening, they gave me one of the chairs they had been building to bring home. I now have a sample, and instructions to build a second one. It still seems like a daunting process (at least cutting the wood on the correct angles does), but I’m always up for a good challenge.

Here’s me … and my chair … and the lovely ladies who built it for me.

It’s going to be so pretty once it’s painted. Now to decide on a color.

And if that’s not enough, my girlfriend and I won the scavenger hunt around the store and walked away with a couple of gift cards. One would have thought it was my birthday or something … oh wait, it was. Doesn’t every girl spend her birthday learning how to build furniture at The Home Depot? No? Just me then I guess.

I’ll be back to share more photos once I’ve built the second chair and painted them both.

If you want to know how to build an Adirondack Chair, Ana White has a tutorial on YouTube.


The newly reopened Home Depot Genesee now features a
40,000 square foot Outdoor Garden Center, larger kitchen and appliance
showrooms, a millwork showroom, an improved Pro-Desk and expanded tool

It also provides workshops and events year-round that the whole family can participate in. Please visit The Home Depot Genesee Facebook page for more information.
