You know what the biggest question lots of people have about DIY projects: It's not about what to do. It's about how to get started.
What tools do I need? What kind of mess is this going to make? How long does it take? Can I really do this?
First, the answer to the last question: YES! Yes, you can.
If you're asking 'Where do I start'?, this show is all about you. But not just for you. Even seasoned DIYers benefit from hearing how other people rock their projects and how-to.
DIY Network's landscape, design, and DIY power broker Sara Bendrick joins power tool empower-er Pretty Handy Girl Brittany Bailey to talk DIY courage and share the things they've learned getting started on their DIY projects to help you get started with yours.
We'll cover the bases from Sara's beloved landscaping to tools to projects to working with your spouse, woodworking and more.
Oh, it's on! Watch this episode on YouTube.
Also joining Mark & Theresa on this episode is Celeste from Instructables.com. She's sharing some of the pallet inspiration and how-to from the site's recent pallet contest, and their archive of hundreds of DIY pallet projects.DIY pallet projects can be amazing additions to your landscape, but there are a few things you might want to know before you get started. Let's talk.
We've proclaimed HGTV host Matt Blashaw as the 'Pallet King' for his creative DIY pallet projects featured on DIY Network's 'Yard Crashers.' Not only has he designed and shared the how-to for his famous pallet into a chair project with Men's Health and USA Today, he also did an entire Las Vegas background in pallets for a showgirl. We believe that Matt has successfully created the current and trendy DIY love for DIY pallet projects.
So whether you are curious about DIYing with pallets or if you've gotten started on a pallet project and are looking for a few tips from the 'Pallet King' Matt Blashaw, you'll want to tune into this episode. (Oh, and when you watch the YouTube show, you'll get to take a peek at Matt in his kitchen, too.)
Matt is a licensed contractor and a licensed Realtor. His on-camera career started in 2006 when he participated in DIY Network's 'Stud Finder.' Since then he has hosted Yard Crashers, Deconstruction, Project Xtreme, Money Hunters, Blog Cabin and Professional Grade, and specials such as Cool Tools Builders Show, Stud Finder 2009, HGTV's Rose Parade coverage and Worst Kitchen In America. Currently you'll find him on HGTV's "Vacation House for Free' that airs Sunday afternoons.
We hope you enjoy this episode of MyFixitUpLife. If you have any questions or comments along the way to your DIY dreams with pallets, MyFixitUpLife's Mark & Theresa are always just a FB post or Tweet away from helping out.
Setting up tools, building a project, and cleaning up can lead to some serious DIY fitness.
Mark & Theresa know first-hand how a DIY lifestyle keeps us healthy and trim. While Theresa keeps the piles of wood, paint cans, buckets, and hammers just to DIYing, Mark on-the-way-other-hand is DIY fitness extreme. Mark actually uses his hatchet, sledgehammer, buckets of rocks, pallets, wood as part of his morning fitness ritual. It’s how he gets ready for a Spartan Race.
Our guests are ready to share their DIY fitness tips.
This week we are blabbing with Jason Cameron, Matt Blashaw, Sara Bendrick, John Colaneri, and Justin DiPego.

Obstacle course racing is the next soccer. Yeah, it's a 'thing'. You've probably heard of one. Or know someone who has---or will---do one. They change lives.
And for us MyFixitUpLifer's there's an extra cool part: It's loaded with DIY of building stuff. So if you’re not lacing up for your own obstacle course racing journey, without people to build the obstacles—for races or for backyards---the race is just a walk in the woods. So this MyFixitUpLife show will inspire the fire for the DIY of OCR.
Spartan Race’s (in)famous Race Director Norm Koch takes us behind the spectacle where the tools are machetes and chainsaws and a whole lotta work. And HGTV’s John Colaneri—co-host of America’s Most Desperate Kitchens and a Spartan racing / Cross-fit nut job (we love you anyway Johnny)—chimes in with fitness tips he uses to stay extra handsome.
This isn't about the gym. Or how fast you go. It's about life itself and building your own tools for the journey. As someone I admire wrote: I already know what it feels like to fail. I want to see what it's like to succeed.
Life happens to all of us. It's what we do about it that counts; how we handle the obstacles.
So tool up and come obstacle course racing with us Lifers, time for a little dirty fun.
