Ever had that moment when you glance at your blank wall and think, "A handcrafted sign would look perfect there?" That's exactly where my journey with Hammer & Stain NWI started. Their DIY workshops turned my blank wall into a canvas of creativity and then some!

My porch was always just... there. Nothing extraordinary, until I attended a workshop at Hammer & Stain NWI. Now, my porch is a statement piece, all thanks to the unique decor I crafted myself. Who knew I had it in me?

Megan is the sweetest and knows just how to make me feel empowered! Thank you!

When my friends ask me where I got my cozy chunky blanket from, they're always surprised by my answer. It wasn't a fancy store, but a rainy DIY afternoon at Hammer & Stain with my mom. Not only did I hand knit my own blanket, but I also crafted memories with my mom and laughed all afternoon. Memories I will always cherish. Thank you!

Such a great night!! It was so neat how the choices for design, stain and paint colors made it fit each persons style! They all looked so great! It is for those of all skill levels, both those crafty and not so crafty. I highly recommend this and will definitely be back! Thank you for so much fun!

What a wonderful time we had at Hammer and Stain. More than just a DIY shop, they make it fun and exciting and at the end of the evening you get to take home a beautiful project. We're certainly going back for another evening of wood staining fun.
