I didn’t see, or couldn’t find, a DIY topic for those brave pioneers and adventurers who dare to take control of their own home improvements (a group of which I aspire to join!).
So, this topic is for all master and novice craftsmen alike to share their knowledge and stories of all things DIY.
I shall start. I recently moved into a new house which is in a somewhat reasonable condition however there are lots of little changes that could be made to improve its overall aesthetic. One of which is the carpet, it’s old and is a terrible colour. However, underneath the carpet is lovely pine floorboards so we decided that instead of replacing the carpet we’ll attempt to restore them.
Due to some time constraints, we decided to hire a professional to perform this task which was due to take place this week. Unfortunately, they’ve now cancelled and can only reschedule in a months time - which is too late.
After lots of deliberating between my wife and I, we finally decided to Do It Ourselves. We’re now in the process of consuming as much knowledge as possible to prepare us for what’s ahead.
My DIY story is only beginning but hopefully, this topic will also serve as a place for everyone no matter where you are in your DIY journey to share your experiences.
- Do you have a great/horrible/bizarre DIY story?
- Like me, are you currently somewhere in the DIY process?
- Do you have grand DIY aspirations ?
I’d be interested to hear about them and I’ll update this topic with my DIY story as it progresses.
