I was contacted last month by Simpson Strong-Tie to take part in their DIY Done Right Campaign. I jumped at the opportunity, since we were in desperate need of additional organization in our workshop! We desperately needed a shipping and receiving area, so we could quickly process website orders. Simpson sent us two kits and $50 to Home Depot to create whatever we wanted! Bryan came up with a design that maximized every square inch of available space we had.The project took us an afternoon to complete. The kits are very easy to use!
The best part is one lucky follower will get a kit and $100 to Home Depot to get their DIY on! Who doesn’t love free?! Additionally, Simpson will be giving away $2000 worth of powertools and hardware!
