HGTV Magazine has partnered with AR Workshop locations across the nation — including Midlands locations in Lexington and Forest Acres — to host a DIY Weekend on Friday and Saturday.

“HGTV Magazine loves our concept,” said local AR Workshop franchise owner Ashley Bonte. “We have worked with them and released designs focused around DIY and the theme ‘Hometown Love.’”

HGTV also has provided “goody” bags for participants with items from Sherwin-Williams, Gold Peak Tea and Scotch Blue Tape.

During the workshop, guests will have the opportunity to make a plank wood sign, jewelry board, wood tray, lazy Susan or wood photo frame.

Bonte and her husband, Matt, opened the area’s first AR Workshop last summer on Sunset Boulevard in Lexington in the Travinia-anchored shopping center that is also home to Momma Rabbit’s Nibbles & Sips restaurant. The couple opened their second location on Forest Drive earlier this year.
