We know how much Creator's Studio members love getting to know other members! Today we're pleased to profile BryanFiveash, a DIY blogger (and if you check out the adorable shaving photo up top, you can see that he wears his "DIY Daddy" handle with pride!) You can check out Bryan's projects on his blog and Instagram

Why did you join Creator's Studio? 
I’ve used Rust-Oleum products for years and love the opportunity here to test new products and participate in project challenges.

What's your favorite part of the Creator's Studio community? 
The sharing of DIY knowledge and project photos.

How would you describe yourself/occupation to a complete stranger? 
I am a husband of 16 years and a father of four who loves to share my DIY project experiences with others.

What creative areas do you like to focus on? 
Lately, it’s been home renovation.

What is your favorite Rust-Oleum product? How has it helped with your DIY projects? 
Rust-Oleum spray paints are what I’ve used the most. They’re simply the best product to use for great color options and durability.

What interests you most about DIY projects? 
I love the sense of accomplishment that I receive after a project is completed. Saving money by doing it myself is another fantastic benefit.

What's the best DIY project you have completed and how did you accomplish it? 
It’s got to be my dining room board and batten project. Pinterest was a great source for design ideas and inspiration:

What's the most difficult project you have tackled? 
Kitchen concrete countertops: https://www.diydadblog.com/concrete-countertops/

If you could create any type of project (with no limitations), what would you design and why? 
It would be a large workshop that houses all my tools with a dust removal system. A larger space would be much easier to navigate and would enable additional types of projects to take on.

Tell us something about yourself that most people don't know about you. 
I grew up with zero knowledge about tools or taking on projects. It wasn’t until I was 19 before I really started to learn these things.

What's the best advice that anyone has ever given you? 
Don’t allow yourself to think that you’ll never have the ability or knowledge to do a particular task. If you need to read a book or watch a how-to video...just figure it out!

What book(s) are on your nightstand right now? 
Usually, it’s a Star Wars novel.

What's your all-time favorite food? 
Sweet potatoes!


Thanks for participating in this feature, @BryanFiveash, and thanks for being part of Creator's Studio!
