    Hi there Hometalkers!! Lets talk everything DIY!

    I would love to try a paint with resin project...specifically on my coffee table...I'm not very artistic and I'm scared to mess it up! Have any first-timer tips? Would love to hear what you all have to say!!! Hopefully with some new-found courage I'll have a post about my "new" coffee table soon!

    Hi I'm K. Rupp! I am an artsy type who married a DIYer. I blog on our Everything Karupped website. Just joined Hometalk in October. Nice to meet everyone. We do most things ourselves! I would love to put in built ins for our TV/media room. I don't think my husband is nervous since he is a woodworker...LOL. I'm just the nervous one! We have to do it so we have access to all the TV cords etc. and that is the tricky part with built ins. At some point this will be a project. Thanks for the spot for introduction:)

    I would LOVE to create some outdoor kitchen space in my backyard, but I am terrified of taking on the project!

    Welcome new Hometalkers! I'm sure you'll find something on Hometalk that you LOVE! I really need to paint my living room walls, but there's some sort of buckling going on underneath the paint (my walls are made of cement) and I'm worried that if I start sanding, I'll uncover something I don't know how to deal with! Kinda nervous, but hoping I can find something or someONE on Hometalk who can help!

    I found the most useful thing for-the media room is a small refrigerator for sodas, cheese, etc. (Alcohol cooks the frontal part of the brain.)
