Home DIY Project Resources-Grand Rapids, MI

When doing a project yourself, there is a high level of accomplishment when you’ve learned a new skill and done a job you can be proud of! Besides the cost savings, this is probably one of the main reasons people love DIY projects! No matter your level of DIY expertise, there are tons of resources that can help you with your next project!

  1. Local Classes! If you like the classroom, hands-on setting, there are frequent homeowner classes offered by Home Repair Services in Grand Rapids. This non-profit is all about helping homeowners! They offer classes that range from basic tile setting to maintenance to financial literacy! They’ve been serving Grand Rapids since 1979 and all of their classes are free!

They have multiple locations in Grand Rapids and throughout West Michigan. Each store has different items ranging from furniture to paint to other home project supplies! You’re sure to find something unique that you wouldn’t see in any other store, and it’s all for a great cause! Habitat for Humanity helps people become homeowners and is celebrating 40 years in Kent County and 500 homeownership goals realized!
  3. Step-by-Step Videos! We love videos and find they are a great source for relaying information and getting information. With the rise of the internet and YouTube, there are so many channels and sources for finding a video to teach you how to do a task or project it can be hard to know where to look. But there are some great resources that can give you inspiration and instruction. We love Home Depot’s site and its DIY workshop videos. Each video project gives you an estimated time it should take and difficulty level. Their projects range from furniture building to changing out electrical outlets. There are even some kid’s projects too! It’s a great stop to find instructions for your next project.
