Let's Get Hammered!

Posted by Amy Baranski and Melissa Baumgart
Welcome to Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Month at Good Luck With That!
Watch out!  This month could be dangerous.  With glue guns, hammers and nails, and dare we even touch a saw?  This month we are tackling DIY projects around the house.  So far ideas range from building furniture to sewing napkins.  
Have you been wanting to shoot yourself in the head with a glue gun lately, I mean, build some furniture for your home?  Do you have any great ideas for DIY projects?  We'd love to hear about or see any projects you have been working on.  Upload a picture of your project on our Facebook page.  At the end of the month we will pick a random winner and we'll send you one of our incredible DIY creations! 
This month was inspired by one our favorite months of last year, Urban Homesteading.  We really enjoyed making everything from scratch and are hoping to expand on that idea with bigger projects around the home.  Here's to the same success story with less exhaustion.  
DIY or DIE!!!

Yay for DIY month! I was going to make some jokes about how we need to get power tools, but in fact I like the idea of using what we have... sawing straight with a hand saw, for instance, rather than breaking out the table saw (hey, dude across the street!). Of course things will take 10 times longer but that's part of the practice. Thanks for stoking the fires as usual GLWT! I have a couple ideas for this month will have to pick something and keep up with you all.

Matty the Hammer, Any projects for you?
Bob, To be honest, I don't even know what I have got myself into! Sawing? Oh my!

I'm about a little something to contain my mint in so it doesn't take over the backyard, not that I would really mind a yard of mint! Maybe a little table for the deck, too?? As Bob said, thanks for stoking the one water aerobics class last month was great!
