About Natasha Dickins

I design and build modern living solutions for clients, but can also fix a wonky kitchen door in 30 seconds and transform an old chair with instant style – and I can show you how too.

My first ever memory is of playing in the woodchips of my dad’s workshop. As a kid I used a mini hammer to make stuff out of timber offcuts. As a grown-up I have a workshop full of tools and a headful of handy knowledge to share.

But am I qualified to work those power tools? For sure! As craft presenter on The Living Room Series 1 I teamed up with masterbuilder and TV personality Barry DuBois to whip up practical projects.

As the former editor of Australian and New Zealand Handyman magazine I helped readers tackle that never-ending weekend to-do list and inspired radio listeners to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty.

I recently featured in Smith Journal and Renovate magazines and online journal The Bonafide Bedfellows. My Little Red Industries creations have starred in Inside Out and Square Rooms magazines and I’m a regular contributor of DIY projects to Gardening Australia.

And now I’m here to inspire you with great design ideas, motivate you to pick up tools, and give you the confidence to get handy.

So let’s DIY together!
