DIY …Do it yourself painting projects?

When planning for a DIY project it is important to think things through a bit.

If you are like me you enjoy learning and doing new things! To complete a project and look at your handy work and enjoy that “Hey I did that myself!” With the plethora of home shows on TV nowadays, there are no shortage of ideas for home improvement.

Do you have the required expertise?

I thought to myself….I can replace that toilet….I have seen it done many times on jobsites. But I learned differently!  After 3 times trying to seat it properly on an uneven floor, I called a plumber!  If you don’t have the know-how needed, wouldn’t you rather do what you do best and use the money you’ve earned to pay a professional and have it done right the first time? I wish I had!

Do I have the time?

Do a good assessment of how much time you want to spend on a project and whether it can truly be completed within your constraints. You want to be sure your project does not drag on and become a burden rather than a joy to complete.The TV shows we watch that get such wondrous results in 20 minutes are time lapsed to get the needed results within the shows time allotment. I often watch with a smile on my face as I think to myself….how long and with how much off screen help, did they get that project competed!

Do I have the required tools?

To get professional results, use professional tools. If you are going to d a DIY do it yourself project, decide whether you have the requited tools and if you have to purchase, whether it is worth the cost in the long run.
