Everything You’ll Need For DIY Projects In 2023
If your new year’s resolution this year is to save money and try your hand at DIY around the house, congratulations! Not only does it save you money, but it also develops skills, unleashes creativity, and turns your house into a beautiful reflection of who you are.
So, if you’re planning on starting a few projects around the house and garden this year, here’s everything you need to ensure your DIY adventure goes smoothly.
Painting And Decorating
Painting and decorating are perhaps one of the easiest tasks you can do yourself. This is because it doesn’t need much professional skill, and this is probably the aspect of the house that is most personal to you. Plus, it doesn’t need a whole army of tools to do the job.
To begin, you might want to trial a few paint colours, in which case you’ll want to buy some sample pots so you can experiment a bit. Once you’ve chosen your colour, get some paint rollers to ensure a smooth finish. As for decorations, the sky is the limit. For a more homemade feel, don’t be afraid to try out making decorations yourself to hang around the house.
A garden renovation will need some more tools, especially electric powered tools that can manage bigger jobs. From creating a new patio to paving your driveway, digging a pond or landscaping different areas, you will need some quality Milwaukee tools that will help you work with wood and other hard materials.
Depending on what kind of vibe you want in your garden, you might want to instal some beautiful water features for a more tranquil feel, lots of texture, colour and activities if you have kids and maybe even a summer house so you can enjoy the garden the whole year round.
With environmental issues coming to the forefront of all aspects of society, recycling and reusing is a key component of reducing one’s carbon footprint. Upcycling is a great way to keep costs low and bring old furniture back to life. Whether it’s a tired-looking armchair, some old flowerpots or even a neglected wardrobe, give your existing things a bit of TLC for the ultimate handmade home.
Alternatively, head to the second-hand furniture stores where you’ll find great quality pieces that have already been used. Not only are they a fraction of the price, they also have a story to tell!
Storage is a key component to an organised home, so add some more storage solutions like floating shelves, dressers and revamping the cupboard under the stairs for coats and shoes. For this, you will need to invest in the proper tools and collect all the materials, like wood panels, screws and aligners, at the store.
