Many easy do-it-yourself projects that will greatly improve the look of your home can be completed by an amateur in only a weekend. Not sure how to do something? You can find instructions online for nearly any project and probably a video showing step-by-step how it’s done. Before getting your hands dirty, all homeowners should have a basic set of tools: hammer, tape measure, X-ACTO knife, utility knife, adjustable crescent wrench, joint and screwdrivers, both regular and Phillips. For projects that require expensive tools you’ll only need once, consider borrowing or renting what you need! Now go out there and get started!!
