ABOUT MR&MRSDIY

We’re Craig and Laura Phillips – and here’s huge hello from us. We’re the Mr and Mrs with a love for all things DIY (of course!)

With years of DIY experience, we decided to share our dedication to drilling, hammering, painting, fixing and creating with the country. Because we’re passionate about helping people of all ages turn a house into a home. And so, Mr & Mrs DIY was born.

From building confidence in the basics to DIY hacks and helping your money go further, we’re here to teach you (or your other half) how to finally get DIY done – the right way.

Forget basic how-to videos and dull instructions, we deliver hands-on, personal experiences from our home workshop that grow your DIY skills and are a fun day out, too!

So, turn down the tradesman, stick with us and start transforming your own home.

Craig

One of the UK’s most recognisable and trusted faces in DIY and home improvements, Craig has thousands of DIY hours under his belt and can’t wait to share his experience with you. Even before winning the first series of Big Brother in 2000, he ran a successful building company, working on everything from kitchens to complete home renovations.

Laura

With an art teacher as a mother and a photographer as a father creativity is in Laura’s genes. From an early age Laura was taught DIY by her dad, and it’s been her love ever since. With a strong eye for interior design, heaps of enthusiasm, and never shy with a hammer, she still manages to teach Craig a thing or two in the workshop!

Sydney

We’d also like you to meet our brand mascot, Sydney the Bulldog. Sydney was originally bought as a wedding present from Craig to Laura. She’s since become a big part of Mr & Mrs DIY and is always helping out and getting involved at the workshop.
