  143. In the middle of making over a small room off of our bedroom to be a dressing/craft room for me.

  144. It’s hard to pick just one, but I’d love to rip off the cheap, thin, heartbreaking woodwork my developer put up and install something more substantial. We’re ripping up the carpets (after 8 years of abuse by kids and dogs), so this would be the time to do it. Fun fun fun!

  145. About to TOTALLY revamp my bedroom, including but not limited to knocking out a closet, building a nail polish rack, and somehow DIYing a mirror desk. No rest for the weary ;) Matter of fact this endeavor is how I found this blog to begin with!

There have been countless changes and updates, but the most recent is our new guest bathroom. You can see it on my blog today. :)

  152. Oh man, I have quite the list. I suppose our guest bathroom would be our first project (you know, to practice before we DIY our master bath).

  155. The bathroom. My husband has promised for years to remodel. I’ve even taken the towel racks down and it has left holes in the wall. Still no luck.

  156. My first priority is finishing my mudroom. Then I have to install the vintage Chambers stove I’ve been restoring which will require moving a few kitchen cabinets. These tools would come in very handy at that time. (And really All the time with an old house.) CTD

  157. We just moved here last Fall, so we have lots of projects! Staining the faded yellow oak banisters and fireplace mantle is at the top of my list. We finally have a place to store tools in our garage though, so adding to our meager collection would be awesome!

  180. We are fixing up a 1910 Foursquare, so lots and lots of projects left. We’re hoping to finish the walk up attic & make it a play room for the kids.

  181. We are hoping to hang a lot of artwork in our house. We moved 1.5 years ago but still have tons of bare walls. Time to add some personality to the walls!

  182. The top DIY right now is my bedroom! I need a headboard, DIY window seat with shelves, and double doors for my closet!

  183. We currently have a bathroom totally gutted. We are trying to re-model the bathroom and a bedroom so my sister can move in.

  184. Since my husband retired from teaching this year, he has been doing some renovating in the house! New tools would be perfect for my new handyman!!

  185. I’m working on my creative space, aka one of the spare bedrooms. I just put in vinyl plank floors and a Closetmaid system. Next I’m removing the ugly baseboard trim and closet surround molding that came with the house. Luckily it was installed badly and comes right off the wall. Then I have to figure out how to hang bi-fold doors on the closet. Not sure why that’s such a scary proposition but eeeeeckkkk!

  186. Our next project is to create a mudroom/storage area in the unfinished portion of our basement. Would love some more tools!

  187. Just moved into a new house. Painting, changing light fixtures and ceiling fans and organizing closets !

  192. Currently m DIY project is new hardwood floors in the family room and cutting a large tv stand down.
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  193. Our top project is redoing the electrical wiring. The breakers keep flipping from being overloaded.

  194. Right now I’m gearing up to redo the mudroom. There are so many functions to fit in the space! I’m getting lots of ideas and pining all sorts of DIY projects for it.

  195. The whole apartment! I spent the last couple of years “homeless”, backpacking around the world with all of my belongings in six bins in brother’s basement. Now that I have a new job in a brand new city, I have ambitious plans. If I had to pick one, first up is painting. The entire apartment, including doors, baseboards, baseboard heaters, and even door hinges, is covered in awful eggshell white.

  196. We just found out the hot water under the kitchen sink has been leaking, so we’ll be pulling up the whole floor and re-doing that and putting in some new cabinets

  197. Lots of “Finish” work to do! Finish the bathroom, finish the bedroom, finish the drywall…see where this is heading??

  198. I’m refinishing an antique bedside table and making plans to build a headboard so I no longer lean against the window at night reading! No more guillotine trap!

  199. Time to start working on the guest room. It’s currently storage for all the extra junk and I’m itching to give it a make over.

  200. My master closet is my next project! It’s currently completely empty, no shelves, rods or anything…it’s long overdue!

  201. I just converted a coffee table into an ottoman and love the end result – tackling the end tables next!

  202. We are trying built in shelving in our powder room. There is zero storage space in there, I’m hoping it will be very functional and pretty.

  203. need to finish the kitchen so badly!! Don’t have any of these tools, it would make it SO much easier :) Thank you for hosting the giveaway!

  204. We are finishing up gutting and redoing our basement! We are almost done building the custom cabinet to hide the gas meter (old house) with a built-in wine rack. It’ taken a couple of years to do the whole project, but that’s what happens when you do everything yourself!

  205. Installing some built in cabinets and windows seats are next on the agenda at our house. And then painting all the walls a new color….. time for the white to go!!! Would love to have all these tools!!!

  206. Updating the bathrooms in my apartment. They’re in desperate need for a makeover.

  207. I’m in the last stages of finishing up my laundry room. Need to put up one more cabinet door, add hardware, spray paint and install the chandelier, touch up paint and add some artwork then call it done!

  208. Had the downstairs bathroom half done for a month now, gotta get back to it.

  214. Oh, there are so many projects–re-doing drywall, installing outdoor lighting, renovating 2 bathrooms…the list goes on!

  215. Our home is at a standstill. We have so many projects started, but everything came to a screeching halt once I was diagnosed with RA. Many tears have been shed as I have gone through surgery after surgery.

  216. I am renovating my master bath and updating my kitchen sink. Then it is on to redoing our kitchen cabinets.

  217. Right now I am re doing my laundry room. Painting the walls & cabinets! I am so excited, every wall in my house is either gold or gray, I have discovered bright AWAKE colors, yea, turquoise is the color for the walls & cream cabinets with glaze ( we will see if I can do the glaze) let’s face it after painting the cabinets I may be to tred to glaze. Lol

  218. Our biggest project right now is refinishing or dinning room table and 10 chairs that was my parents. It’s pickled and white washed so it will need to be completely stripped and refinished!

  219. Just finished picking out kitchen cabinets and counter top. We have our work cut out for us in 6 weeks when all this stuff arrives………. (:
    We will probably need more than tools………………….ha

  220. We are working on our master bedroom right now, although there are many little projects that need to be taken care of!

  221. I am undergoing a major life transition and have moved into a home of my own that needs some work. It’s an exciting time, but I have no tools with which to assemble some new items. I also have some interior renovations that need to be made. Winning these Tekton tools would make a big difference in my ability to set up my new home. Thank you for your consideration!

  222. Right now, I have two projects going on. I’m painting the bedframe and dresser in my guest room, and I’m getting ready to install an in the cabinet trashcan in my kitchen. Fun, fun!

  223. I stained a huge tv console with 6 coats of stain colors-
    White, Navy Blue, Chocolate Brown with a white coat base of paint primer to
    the raw wood. Everyone thinks it’s from Pottery Barn!!!

  224. We have 3 DIY projects in the queue: the powder room, kitchen, and master bedroom & bath.

  225. I am taking down an interior wall to expose the brick. I have been removing the plaster and drywall, and plan to re-drywall around the brick. It will be gorgeous. I am also removing the outdated wallpaper in my kitchen so I can paint.

  226. My entire 3rd floor is begging to be turned into a master suite but I don’t have any money for it right now so we’re trying to figure out what we can do to make it workable without spending a lot of money on contractors. I also need to fix a wallpaper border in my dining room that has been messed up since we moved a doorway almost 2 years ago. I’m sure it will take me 10 minutes.

  227. Our biggest DIY project is my husband building a set of built-in cabinets and shelves in our playroom/homeschool room. He is starting on them tomorrow and I couldn’t be more excited!

  228. We tore off the back porches on our house and added an enclosed porch on the second story which is sitting unfished right now.

  229. I have a million projects but the most pressing is my nursery considering the baby arrives in 3 months.

  230. Next project is extending kitchen cabinets up to ceiling and adding crown molding throughout kitchen and family room. Thanks for the chance to win!

    At least that is the plan. :0)

  233. Just finished laundry room and now working on replacing those awful wire shelves with wood. So excited to get started

  234. So many things to do. I guess the biggest project I got going on right now is a workbench in the basement. We recently had our oil tank replaced and the newer one was wider and further out from the wall than the original so my current workbench that I had in front of it is now way too big. I either have to cut it down or build a new one… I’ve just been lazy for the past couple weeks.

  235. Have not started yet but my living room is in desperate need of a complete makeover. Currently in the planning phase!

  236. Changing the color on my living room walls…..have had the same color in there way too long!

  237. Our bedroom! Sewing curtains, building a headboard, installing a chandelier… The list never ends! :-)

  238. Currently working on updating my laundry/mudroom/dog room by replacing the flooring but found that a section of the subfloor needs to be repaired as well. We put a fresh coat of paint, putting up Billy bookshelves for cubbies and Algot shelving for laundry organization. I’d like to make the door into a Dutch door rather than use the baby gate that we currently use for ol’ Fido. :)
    Other projects include: installing picture frame wainscoting on my stairs and finish painting the baseboards and door trim white throughout the second floor. Eventually, I’ll repainting the kitchen cabinets white and put a fresh coat of paint there too. Oh yeah, I also plan to gel stain my bathroom cabinets in the master bath and hall bath too! Whew! There’s always something! ;)

  239. I’m anxiously awaiting spring break (teacher) so I can tackle a backsplash and staining the kitchen cabinets. The golden oak is driving me nuts!!

  240. I have been wanting to put up a gallery wall in my living room and put shelves on my kitchen wall for extra storage.

  241. Hacking some old Ikea furniture to create a more functional laundry room/closet in our little apartment! These tools would be such a huge help!

  243. Living room top to bottom! New hardwood floors, paint, curtains, lighting. Then off to the family room for a fresh coat of paint!!

  244. Just built out front hall closet into a open ” built-in closet” with bead board and trim. Just what the architecturally boring townhouse needed! Thank you for all your inspiration to get these projects done!

  245. Finally making our teeny tiny laundry room more functional with storage and space for a mudroom!

  246. We just moved into a new house, and we’re in the midst of totally redoing the kitchen–the first of many projects!!

  249. Our boys bathroom needs a complete renovation. Hopefully, we can start over spring break!

  250. So I know you said one, but we are currently deciding on which project to start!! I think we are going to raise our kitchen cabinets and add a shelf, a la domesticimperfection.com, I also want to add a pull out garbage and recycle can as well as remove the stile from the lower cabinets and add inside drawers for the pots and appliances! (And after that we just might be doing a billy bookcase built in, but I cant decide which wall!! Email me if you can help!)
    Oh, and I want to tile the backsplash :D
    I swear I’m not nesting, is there a name for this crazy drive to personalize my home??

  251. Right now we are setting up a plan to build out own living room table and also pulling up our yucky vinyl kitchen floor to lay down some new flooring!

  252. I’ve got 2 DIY projects going right now. The first is remodeling the bathroom – replacing the medicine cabinet facade with tile and a new mirror that I’m making into a door. The second is upgrading all the discount store book shelves my husband accumulated over time. They’ve all got warped shelves and torn backing from the heavy books.

  253. I have a headboard that is half painted in the garage, waiting for the temps to rise for me to finish and a coffee table and side table that need a paint/stain job and new hardware. Can’t wait for Spring!

  254. Crown molding in all the bedrooms! Would also love to screen in our porch but I’m not sure we can DIY that one :)

  255. I’m going to be redoing a bathroom as soon as it warms up here in Minnesota. The polar vortex doesn’t want to leave! Thanks for the chance to win.

  256. We need to build some custom storage for toys in our living room. We’d put these tools to good use!

  257. We want to (and need to) redo the closet in our spare bedroom with cubbies and shelves to store office supplies and craft supplies. Hoping to also frame it out to match the door. We’ve gotten as far as taken off the bi-fold doors. Ha!

  262. It’s got to be our original 1954 “Pink Pinkle” bathroom with pink tub, pink sink, pink commode, 6 ” pink floor and wall tile! It’s our main bath and has seen a lot of use over the years. The 6″ tile was not intended for floor application so the color has worn off and chipped badly around the perimeter of each tile. We are the third owners of this home and we have been in reno mode since we purchased it about 8 years ago. Thanks for the chance to win and encouragement for women taking on this work!

  263. We are putting our house on the market this spring so the list is endless. We have so much to do!

  264. Our top DIY project is building shevles for the upstairs loft. I am LOVING the industrial look with pipes!

  267. My DIY project waiting to happen is the master bath. Looking forward to getting rid of the contractor grade BLAH-ness!

  268. One of the many DIY projects I would love to start and complete is finishing our garage. Winter is our longest season and insulating and drywalling our garage would help keep our vehicle warm.

  269. My husband’s custom built work bench. Hoping it leads to more projects around the house like a bookshelf.

  270. Finishing up various painting projects throughout the house and then moving on to kitchen (painting original 1920’s cabinets and installing new counter tops).

  271. First, thanks for the opportunity to win this great set of tools! Second, love your blog!

    I did manage to do a DIY Valentine’s Tree!

  272. top project? finally finishing de-brassing the house! plus touching up paint on inside trims and mouldings as part of spring cleaning!

  273. That must be the master bath — not sure it can actually be handled entirely DIY though! It needs all new everything down to the studs!!

  274. The top DIY project in my house in new garage cabinets and shelving!! SO time consuming without the right tools, but I need organization! :)

  275. Painting and trying to convince my husband that a tiled backsplash would be wonderful in the kitchen. Does that count as a DIY project? Convincing your husband to DO a DIY project! :)

  276. Our new DIY project is our master bedroom and bathroom. We just finished flooring in the bedroom. Now all we have left is paint, closet doors and organizer, bathroom flooring, paint bathroom cabinets, new counter top, sinks, faucets, shower, bath tub and tile. Help, we need those tools!:)

  277. Our Bedroom — our house was built in the early 1900’s. The walls are plaster/lath…old and cracked. We are patching, painting. sealing the windows, rewiring — all those things to bring the room into the 22nd century!

  278. Repairing our deck off of our living room and dining room, then it’s on to our master bedroom that needs paint desperately, and new floors. It never ends!

  279. Diy duvet cover. I created my own stencil and am painting in on sheets before sewing them into a duvet.

  280. I’m in the midst of painting my son’s closet door to look like the TARDIS (time machine/phone booth-looking thing) from the TV show Dr. Who… I forgot that in addition to painting it I would also need to install a new doorknob, which added a bit more work to the process. Almost done now! Thank you, Kate!

  281. Thank you so much for the chance to win. We are moving into a house that has been rented. Every room needs a complete redo but I am most excited about the living /dining room. There is only one window so I want light clean and lovely on a very very small budget. Thanks again.

  282. I’m really hoping to get started working on a built-in shelf/cubby to be installed in our entry way….for baskets of gloves/hats and hooks for coats and the top shelf to display some family photos…it would really help organize our very tiny entryway!

  283. We are currently in the middle of a kitchen remodel. It looks like it will take a few more years to finish. The set would be a big help.

  284. Thanks for the chance…would love to install a closet organizing system into my master closet….could be amazing, but currently it’s just a dumping ground!! Thanks!

  285. Painting and un-door-ing some kitchen cabinets and tearing out cumbersome one in the laundry room are my next order of business. After my husband passed away, his son-in-law, helping me prepare the house for sale, took it upon himself with his son’s help to tackle the garage. Unbeknownst to me, he decided to put together the perfect toolbox for a gal. Unfortunately, he didn’t realize that I came into the marriage with the absolutely perfect toolbox which I had previously put together with the help of my father and my brother. That was over two years ago and I haven’t yet recovered from the shock and disappointment and downright irritation!

  286. What a great giveaway. I could use all those tools to add wainscoting to my entry and hallway. Love your website

  287. Fixing up our downstairs bathroom, installing mirrors and lights in the hallway. every part of our house needs to be worked on!

  288. Ugggh, my son’s “nursery”. I finished just enough to finally move him in last week – he’s 15 months old!! I think it will continue to be a work in progress until it’s time for a big boy room, but then maybe it will be complete someday for a baby sibling, haha. I’d like to semi-build-in the closet next, right now it’s just a pretty turquoise empty box. Baby steps for this amateur solo DIYer.

  289. Repainting our wrought iron railing on our indoor staircase. Huge pain because I have to paint it in place, inside. Stinky and will take forever, but will look so much better!

  290. Finishing the guest room which means finally painting a mural on the focal wall and getting a desk that will juuussst fit. The mural will encompass the entire wall as if one is looking at a scene through a HUGE picture window. Should make the half-underground room look nice and bright.

  291. Where do I start? Since we’ve had ridiculously warm weather here in the Bay Area, I’m planning to transplant a weeping cherry tree next to the patio, and prep the area to lay DG. Lots of digging and hauling on my weekend agenda. Happy Valentines Day!

  292. We’ve got a ton of projects that need attention. I’d love to tackle the guest room headboard that I’m trying to recreate from your upholstered headboard instructions. I’ve got to finalize what fabric I’m going to use, but the tool set would definitely help make that job much easier!

  293. We’re currently renovating our kitchen! Cabinet doors are off and the boxes are painted. We need to construct new doors. Shelves inside are up though. :)

  294. Front porch steps. Getting downright dangerous. And maybe new backsplashes, as i painted my cabinets!! Wahoo….

  295. I would love some quality tools from Teton. Our current diy project is reorganizing the garage so we can get the car back in. Lots of shelving to be built and purging involved. Thanks for sharing such a generous giveaway.

  296. My top DIY project is an old door that I’m turning into a bench for my entry way into my apartment. This set of tools would make this and any other project a snap.

  300. Well right now I am on to the hallway to my bedroom. Today I’m going to scrape off the cottage cheese ceiling and re-mud and paint . Then tomorrow I am going to paint wall and trim to get ready to rehang my gallery wall. Busy weekend.Thanks for the chance to win those great tools, they would certainly be used here!

  301. We are in the process of revamping our entry hall and hanging a floating shelf this weekend, followed by hanging a DIY chandelier I am in the process of making.

  302. None! We’re getting ready to do a home remodel, so my focus now is sifting through all of the junk that has accumulated over 4 years and tossing most of it out.

  303. Our top project right now is to finish changing out all of the outlets, light switches and fans! We’ve only been working on it for 6 years now…

  304. My favorite is always the one I am working on! Currently I am covering up the brick fireplace with granite tiles. I have worked in a mantel and decorative tile trim which I have cut with my wet saw. The fireplace goes from the floor to the ceiling (9 ft ceiling, thank goodness). Working on what to do with the firebox – it will get tile!

  305. We hope to sell our house soon, so new flooring & paint all around…hopefully no other repairs will be needed, but you never know

  306. My husband and I are in the final stages of remodeling our kitchen and our current task is tiling the backsplash with 4″ x 12″ white subway tile.

  308. We’re gearing up to add trim to all of the windows in our house (builder grade, right now they only have a bottom sill)

  309. I am a photographer and along with thousands of photos i also collect picture frames. I live in a small apartment with limited space in my computer/craft room. My DIY project is trying to find a way to store the picture frames (all sizes) in their own organized space. As i really have limited amount of tools this wold be awesome to win. Thanks for the opportunity!

    Oh and what does this mean and how do i do it….? leave a second comment telling where you linked (FB or Twitter). I don’t understand the link thing and how do i find it, i’m on fb? Please.

  310. I am currently doing my first ever makeover on a $7.00 desk from a thriftstore. (using all your great advise)

  311. Both of my bathrooms are under renovation. Hopefully one day soon we will finally be able to shower in one and be able install the toilet and sink in the other. :/

  312. We just finished 2 of our bathrooms and the kitchen. So, I think the LR needs to be painted and the 3rd (guest) bathroom needs new tile.
