If you’ve been following along with me for a little while, then you know that I’ve partnered up with CIL paints on a few different projects in the past, from easy little DIY projects, to my tour of South-Western Ontario Home Depot stores where I got to help people choose their perfect paint colours. Plus, I’ve been using CIL paints for all of my painting around the house for years because the quality and the price is always just right.
This year, CIL Woodcare is sponsoring the Main Stage at the Spring Cottage Life Show and they’re giving me the amazing opportunity to get up on that stage and share a fun outdoorsy DIY project using wood and CIL wood stain! I honestly can’t wait! I had so much fun getting to connect with people in person when I did the Home Depot tour and I know this is going to be just as great. Or better! Probably better. 🙂
This is exactly how the crowd will look as they’re being charmed, entertained, and informed by my amazing presentation… I hope! 🙂
I feel like this show is such a good fit for me because I basically live in a cottage year-round. OK, so our “waterfront” property is on a creek, not a beautiful lake, but still, pretty much the same thing.
We have the peace and quiet, the wildlife, the beautiful views that we can enjoy while relaxing on our deck, and of course, “cottage style” makes perfect sense for our outdoor spaces since we live in what most people would consider the middle of nowhere!
We’re working hard on putting the finishing touches on our easy cottagey DIY project, a DIY Rustic Barn Wood Beverage Center made out of wood that’s fallen off of that exact barn pictured above, and I’ll be sharing it with you here on the blog next week, just before I speak at the show. So you can check it out on the blog and then come by and see me work on it in person at the International Center in Missisauga on April 2!
The show runs from April 1-3 and I’m really excited to get to see all the cottagey fun that the show has to offer as well as the presentations from other cottage-minded folk on the CIL main stage. Seriously, check out all the fancy people that will be presenting on the exact same stage as me! It’s amazing. I can hardly stand it. 🙂
While we’re waiting for all of the fun to begin, I’ll be hosting a giveaway over the next week where I’ll be giving away 5 prize packs featuring tickets for 2 to the show, CIL swag, and gift cards for CIL and to The Home Depot! Each prize pack has a value of about $300!
So how do you enter? All you have to do is share a photo of a past woodworking DIY project that you’ve completed OR a photo that you’ve found on the internet or on Pinterest of a woodworking project that you find really inspiring and use the hashtag #CILWoodcare!

Thanks so much to CIL Woodcare for sponsoring this post and the awesome mainstage at the Cottage Life Show. I was compensated for my time in writing this post, but all opinions, thoughts, and general sentiments of excitement are mine as always!
