from DIY curious to
diy serious

bust out the power tools and put on your safety goggles because we're going from aspiring DIYers to confident makers ... together!

tired of waiting for someone else to have time to complete your home diy project list?

You want to renovate your home but it’s all so intimidating and you get lost trying to follow DIY tutorials

You don’t know much about power tools but you’re crushing on all the DIY projects you see on Pinterest and want to do them, too

You don’t want to hire a contractor for every little house project and know if you just knew HOW you could do it yourself 

You follow 2398572893 Instagram DIYers and wonder how they can build a sofa, table, and feature wall in 1 weekend

let's change that together!

hey there,
we're Sarah & Tj

I know exactly what it’s like to want to learn how to DIY but don’t know where to start. 

I used to wait for my father-in-law to have time to complete projects for us.

I was intimidated by powertools and the thought of completely messing everything up.

I would walk into Home Depot with TJ and not know the first thing about choosing wood or finishing supplies.  

TJ learned from his dad and then he taught me.  

Through trial and error (and one total home renovation), we learned along the way how to do projects on our own and want to help you do the same.

with diy together you could be making this

You’ll learn how to confidently use power tools with step-by-step video tutorials

We’ll walk you through how to start planning a project, including how to measure accurately, drawing up plans, and figuring out what cuts to make

You’ll walk into Home Depot and know exactly what wood you need and how to pick the best pieces for your project

Need to paint or stain?  No problem.  We got you covered.  Follow along as we share exactly how to finish projects

The best part?  We’re doing this together.  There’s a private Facebook group just for members where we answer questions and provide feedback.  You’re not flying solo out there.  We’re DIYing together.

Sharing the big reveal of our formal living room turned modern office space. We used various IKEA pieces, including a butcher block countertop, and Home Depot lumber to make a custom built in desk. We made DIY floating shelves, modern floral wallpaper, and tons of plants to decorate.

For the beta period, we will be building out the videos and material with your help.  That’s why you can get started for only $47 total.  No monthly fee or hidden costs.  We want your feedback to help improve the program and make it the absolute best experience possible.  We’ll be releasing new content every week.  If you have questions or specific DIY problems, we want to know so we can help!

Tutorials on Pinterest and other sites are typically for very specific projects, and many of them assume a base-level of knowledge on how to actually do the things necessary to follow the tutorial. DIY together provides the foundation you need to follow those tutorials confidently, no matter how advanced the project.

Once you purchase DIY Together, you have lifetime access to the main modules, bonuses, and Facebook group.  This includes any future updates that may be made.

A BETA launch gives a small group of people early access to DIY together at a highly discounted rate. In exchange for that discount, you help us out by offering feedback as we build out all of the modules. You have the opportunity to influence the direction of the final product, making sure it is something that is an extremely valuable resource to you and all of our future DIY together members.

It’s always a good idea to have a few basic hand tools. We recommend a set of screwdrivers, a hammer, a 4-foot level, a bullet level (small level for shelves and things), and a measuring tape. 

As for power tools, the basic DIY starter kit is typically a drill/driver, a circular saw, an orbital or palm sander, and preferably also a miter saw. You can do almost everything you need with a circular saw, but a miter saw makes things a lot easier. 

Once you purchase, you’ll be set an email with instructions including your user name and password to access all the material online.  You have lifetime access to all of the materials. All modules, videos, downloads, and bonuses are housed online on a website called Kajabi.  You’ll get a separate email with instructions on how to access everything!

DIY Together is for your if you LOVE Pinterest and stalk Instagram DIYers but don’t have the confidence, knowledge, or skill to actually do what they’re doing.  

You know you want to learn, you’re ready to figure out power tools and complete those DIY projects you’ve been crushing on.

You’re sick of waiting around for someone else to complete those DIY projects on your bucket list.

You know you’d feel more confident with step by step tutorials and someone (Sarah & TJ!) to ask questions to.
