Holley True Value in Selma, AL

Favorite True Value Product

I am always stunned by some of the price tags on the "found objects" that are so popular in many home catalogs these days. A recent trip to the Flea Market revealed galvanized tubs selling for over $150 each! I will admit my love for all things rustic and galvanized, but I draw the line at spending that much money on something I can find at my local True Value hardware store for a fraction of the price. At just $20 each, these galvanized metal tubsmake the perfect addition to my home and garden without breaking any budgets.

Best Quick Tip

It might be cliché, but the old saying "Measure twice, cut once" is one of the most important tips I can give a DIYer.


Growing up in a DIYing family taught me to navigate the aisles of hardware stores at a young age. These days I document our design process on my home design blog, Unskinny Boppy. On my site you'll find DIY projects and interior design ideas, along with a few stories of my family scattered throughout. I love gardening, and in the springtime I'll be getting my hands dirty working in my flowerbeds. I also have a passion for photography and bring my projects to life with the flash of a camera lens. I believe that you don't have to spend the family's savings to do a project right; anyone can be a DIYer with a bit of craftiness and careful execution!
