If this were a 12-step meeting, I'd be the one standing up confessing that I'm ridiculously addicted to DIY projects. With a DIY project addiction, you tend to also pick up a few DIY tips and tricks that make DIY life so much easier.
When I was a kid, I tried to build the patio behind our house. We'd purchased the 24" x24" concrete patio blocks but had not gotten around to laying them down. I decided to help with that. I was 11. And small. I guess that might be when it started.
As time went on, my addiction only grew. Many projects later, I've gained the confidence to remove walls, build furniture, and even add closets.
I've had successes and fails. But more than anything, I've learned a lot, much I wish I'd known when I started. It's from those experiences that this category was born.
This category contains DIY tips and tricks I've learned throughout the years that I hope will save you time and money as you learn from my mistakes (and successes!)
Whether or not you're a DIY Diva-master or don't know a Phillips head from a flat, you'll find something useful here.
With these DIY tips and tricks, you'll be looking like the DIY equivalent to the master or mistress of the universe – and yes, it's okay to expect everyone to call you that!
