Why do you call yourself “DIY in Real Life *What’s the Worst that can Happen??!”
Nicole: Ummmm…. I’ll blame that one on mom. Her famous line was, “Yeah! Go for it! What’s the worst that can happen??!” Still my favorite thought! Seriously, why not go for something even if you totally don’t know exactly what you’re doing? What if you pick the wrong paint color? The worst that can happen is that you…. Repaint it? So you lost a few hours and a gallon of paint! Big deal! You learned something from it!
How did you get started with all this DIY stuff?
Nicole: Okay… So I’ll blame that one on mom too! She seriously is the most supportive person you’ll ever meet. By age 18 I DIY’ed our kitchen, dining room, (twice) living room, my bedroom, a brother’s bedroom, and way too much furniture.
I was laying a tile backsplash… (Without much of a clue what I was doing…)
Re-laminating a countertop…. (Which didn’t really work. *Cough Cough*)
Installing a sink….. (Plumbing? How hard can THAT be?)
Painting…. A lot….
And she just let me do it???!?!? Wha—???!?
Yeah. She’s awesome like that.
