Gemma also imparts tips on styling and future colour trends whilst Wayne finishes the episode with some brilliant guidelines and tips on hanging pictures.

Ben (Thorndown’s Managing Director), first met Wayne in 2018 when helping out on an episode of ITV1’s “Love Your Garden” TV series.

We were supplying Wood Paint for a garden build that had so much painting to do that Ben jumped into his painting clothes, grabbed a brush and headed on down to help.

I had the pleasure of meeting him during the 2019 series of “Love Your Garden” when I took a delivery of paint over to one of their builds and stayed for 2 days to help with the huge task of painting that they faced in that garden.

Wayne Perrey has been a specialist carpenter for 10 years, designing, crafting and building bespoke furniture for private clients. In addition to this the multi-talented man has also built furniture and sets for numerous TV shows including “Tattoo Fixers”, “Celebrity Big Brother”, “The Great Interior Design Challenge”, 60 minute makeover with Peter Andre on “This Morning”, “The Autistic Gardener” and of course, “Love Your Garden”.

This talented man has an infectious personality and a huge passion for DIY and imparting his knowledge to others. With DIY expert and friend Steph Bron, he also has a company called “The DIY Doers” that publish E-books, offer online courses, and share their knowledge via their Facebook page. They also write for The Sunday Times Home Magazine, do DIY tutorials on TV show ‘Crafty beggars in the house’, talks on the main stage of the Ideal Home Show, and have just finished filming the new BBC daytime show “Getting the Builders In”.

Wayne-Perrey-TV-Carpenter-Podcast-identIn his quest to make us all confident ‘DIY Doers’ he is starting a podcast series full of simple tips and tricks, interviews with interior designers, garden designers, directors, producers and other special guests.

There aren’t many people as experienced and well-placed to offer their teachings as Wayne. This will be the first UK based DIY podcast series and having listened to his first episode, I’m hooked already.
