I want your DIY top tips


Simon's DIY drilling tipThe 'DIY Projects with Simon' show is back on Saturday at 1pm and I’m going to start sharing some of the top DIY tips.

I’ve learned a few whilst working with all the great guys on 'Real Rooms' and 'The Real DIY Show' which I will share over the coming months, but I would like to hear from you. I’ll store the tips up for a few weeks and read some out on the show, so come on… share!

Here’s one for you: You know when you've done all the decorating and everything is looking great, then you drill a hole in the wall for a mirror or curtain pole or something and all the dust from the hole you’re drilling falls down on the skirting boards etc… arghh! Well, get an old envelope and some low tack masking tape (or just masking tape you’ve stuck to your jumper a few times to dull it down) and stick the open envelope to the wall under the drill bit, and when you drill all the dust is collected in the envelope – voila!

Have you got any more?
