Resene King & Queen of DIY

The Waikato Home & Garden Show is on the hunt for the region’s Resene King and Queen of DIY. If you know how to perfectly paint a wall and swing a hammer on the nail the crown could be yours!

Entries are now open and close 23 October 2020


Are you going to be the first Resene King & Queen of DIY? 


If you’re a home renovation master, don’t mind getting your hands dirty and fancy yourself as the go-to fixer upper then this one is for you. Forget calling a handy man, you can do it yourself! 

Painting your own walls? Easy. Laying your own tiles? Piece of cake. Building a planter box? Give it here.

For the first three days of the Waikato Home & Garden Show, contestants will compete in a series of heats with fellow competitors (three guys and three gals in total) progressing to the ultimate test, the Sunday final. Challenges will test DIY prowess and could be anything from hanging wallpaper to creating a living wall.

The two supreme winners will not only be crowned the 2020 Resene King and Queen of DIY, but will also win an incredible prize pack with over $2,000 of prizes from Resene, TSB, Skyline Rotorua and more!
