Here at Krrb we love doing it ourselves. Whether it’s a nice bench or lamp, there’s nothing quite like the feeling you get after building something yourself. That’s why it’s so great to know that if you go looking in any city you can find a nice, little DIY shop that might just have everything you need.

This month, we’re exploring a few DIY Shops in DC. If you’re a native or just visiting the area, these are the go-to shops for your DIY needs.
