With more funds available to us to do some of the home upgrades and remodels that we’ve put off for so long, I find myself thinking about the priorities that we need to set and wondering how much of the work we can do ourselves?
I forwarded an email to my husband today from a big box retailer that promised a weekend bathroom remodel for less than $500 and I found myself tempted by the smiles of the folks featured in the email communication. They make installing tile look SO EASY.
And I want to be that person – but I’ll be honest – I know that I’m likely not that person. (And maybe I should do something like hang up the pictures in the living room – a project that I’ve put off for two years – before I think about laying tile.) But I’m also curious to take some classes – the aforementioned big box store has seminars that feature DIY home improvement projects.
I know that some of my readers have more experience with DIY projects than I do … any tips out there? I am curious to find out what kind of cost savings are available by actually doing projects around the house instead of hiring someone to do it.
