An Online Home for Legendary Know-How
Here at McLendon, we’re always talking shop. We're an eclectic bunch and someone always has a project going on. That’s what’s fun about DIY. Doing something for yourself feels good, even when it goes spectacularly wrong. We got this blog going to help you build on what you already know, and maybe learn something your grandma hasn’t yet taught you. The blog will be packed full of ideas for stuff to do, touched by old-fashioned know-how and created with the understanding that you’re busy.
Now each of us arrives on this green earth knowing diddly-squat about DIY. And a lot of us have someone to thank for our love of projects. Handy dads have passed on their skills for generations. Grandmothers saved summer harvests in a profusion of canned veggies. Maybe you knew a neighbor who sewed, or papier machéd, or was the information repository on all things housekeeping. These are the people who inspire and teach us every day.
We’re here to get them talking so their special knowledge can be safely deposited in the Bank of the Internet for future times. Visit the blog to get ideas on stuff to build, tinker with and grow in the next day, week and season. Sometimes you do a project because you have to, because the leaky sink won't fix itself. But often, you have an inkling and the ambition to complete it, and it happens before your eyes.
Whether it’s winterizing your over-cold home, or installing a new toilet ring, or readying the house in anticipation of guests—we’ve got you covered. Old hats and DIY noobs alike will find ideas and easy instructions for projects of all kinds.
Wherever you fall on the rainbow-tinted spectrum of DIY, we’ve got some projects lined up for you. There’s a feeling that comes with completing a project, an “I did it myself” sense of accomplishment. Maybe you’re the type to take a photo, share it, post it, bask in the warm glow of your adoring fans. (Thanks for the “likes,” mom.)
