Nailed It DIY was born out of a chance encounter by two creative women with a need in their local church. In 2014, Shannon Evans was just another ordinary mum who loved to do DIY projects. That is, until a local church approached her and requested that she help a group of women complete a DIY project for their homes. And that is how this novel business idea was born.

Shannon called up her best friend Misty Grant and soon their notebooks were filled with ideas to make their DIY passion a business. Soon enough, they created a workshop where they could work from. Nailed It DIY held their first class in September 2014, and by 2018, they had started franchising.
