Last week we shared our epic home improvement plans for this year and we already have so many projects and goals that it feels exciting and a bit overwhelming at the same time.
Over the last 8 years (yes, we’ve been blogging here for almost 8 years!) we’ve been sharing our home improvement adventures and documenting our progress here not to share how amazing we are (we’re certainly not!) but to show that if we can DIY anyone can!
This year, we want to help you achieve your DIY goals and we’ll be starting a new DIY basics series which will cover all of the answers to the questions we had when we first got started at DIYing and felt silly to ask along with all of the questions you possibly think are stupid (and we all know there are no stupid questions)!
They’re often things we now take for granted now but everyone has to start their DIY journey somewhere and it would make us so happy if we can help just one person achieve something they didn’t think possible!
When we first started on our DIY journey we’d barely even hung a picture let along even thought about tackling some of the projects we do now!
We didn’t know the difference between a mitre saw and a plunge saw, we had no idea about the hundreds of different types of paints, screws and nails, and we certainly didn’t think we’d ever attempt projects like replacing our garage roof, sanding our floors, building our own furniture or learn how to install a washbasin and tap!
You’ll probably be surprised at how easy most DIY projects are if you learn the simple DIY basics! There’s no need to be scared of power tools and we want to help you feel comfortable in using them, too! It may sound overdramatic but they really have changed our lives.
We’ll be covering topics like how to use a cordless drill, what kind of tools to use for what jobs and lots of tips and tricks to help you get the results you want!
Best of all, DIY is fun! You learn new skills, you learn to be more self-sufficient and you can save a ton of money in the progress!
It’s time to stop putting off all of those little jobs around the house. There’s no need to splash your hard-earned cash on a tradesperson for the little jobs! We’re here to help you get to grips with any kind of project!
We were total novices when we started out on our building and home improvement adventure and if we can do it anyone can!
If you have any DIY and home improvement questions, we’d love you to send us an email or leave a comment and let us know what you’d like us to cover!
Let’s all learn to DIY in 2020!
Don’t forget to let us know what questions you have and what you’d like to see us share here!
