To decorate our bedroom and make it the perfect place to relax as my husband deserves following a horrendous year.

My Photo

My New Year DIY resolution is to stop procrastinating and actually do some DIY? I am now retired and thought I would do all the little 'jobs' around the house that have accumulating . The hamper would be my kickstart for a spring time DIY revolution.

My Photo

My new years resolution is to finish off the decorating - it's 4 years since we moved in & some of it never got finished!

My Photo

To buy or hire the right tools for the job, using a knife as a screw driver is probably the reason none of my jobs get finished

My Photo

My resolution is to finnish decorating the house we bought a year ago and i can't think of anything better than some brand new Harris brushes(i looove them!) to finnish my decorating jobs plus all the other items are a must

My Photo

Starting in the spring i plan on redecorating every room in my house, starting with the bathroom, bedrooms then working my way down!!

My Photo

To get my daughter more for her own toolkit. She's already the one who others turn to at university when they want kit mended! (Music Technology course (3 girls 40 lads!)

My Photo

My resolution is to stop trying to tackle 50 jobs at once and just to do one at a time but do it properly!

My Photo

My DIY resolution is to get my dad to teach me how to do more jobs around the house. I can paint and decorate, but am a little afraid to try much else...and he is always willing to do anything that needs doing....but us women on our own should be able to be self-sufficient, and not have to rely on a man to help!!

My Photo

To finish the house we live in so we can make a start on renovating our 'Forever Home'.

My Photo

My resolution is to not start one job/project before finishing the last one! I currently have about 5 half-done jobs on the go.....

My Photo

My resolution is to do any DIY jobs that need doing within the followingi week.

My Photo

To just do it! what out all you niggling jobs !

My Photo

JDI ( Just Do It )

To get my home in order whatever it takes.

My Photo

My Photo

My new year resolution is to save up for our first family holiday abroad, and not only will I be attempting to shave money off regular bills, but to reduce shopping expenditure too.

My Photo

Need new DIY Tools,this would be lovely to win,can rebuild garden shed.

My Photo

My resolution is to actually start to work through the list that my wife has drawn up for me.
If it gets any longer I'll be able to paper the hall, stairs and landing with it!
New house was purchased in May 2012 - time to start making it a home

My Photo

My hubby has procrastinated.
The hall, stairs and landing is hated.
A paint cover is all that I need
And this prize would help him succeed.
A few more jobs would be added to the list
With these tools none would be missed!
I might even help too
With the aid of this prize from you.

My Photo

My Photo

It would inspire me to get those long left jobs done!

My Photo

garden will be my priority this year ,i would be more green this year but trying to grow some vegetables for each season

My Photo

My New Years resolution is to stop asking the wife to do the odd simple jobs around the house. She only ever replies to my requests by saying "DO IT YOURSELF". Anyway it's quicker and better to do it myself especially if I have the right tools for the job

My Photo

My resolution is to sand down all the doors and skirting in my house in preparation for a new coat of paint. My kids will be helping me (12 & 7) do the sanding so that they can learn the art of DIY.

My Photo

I open the door and walk through it fast,
I realised the paint job wasn't going to last.
As more days past I noticed it more,
Kept my eyes away and on the floor.
Scuffed paint and skirting boards do not go,
I rush people past so they don't know.
Soon dear skirting boards it's day DIY,
There will be no more need for us to be shy.

My Photo

With my husband being relocated and my son changing schools in September we find ourselves house hunting. Therefore we have to do the necessary upgrading to our house to put it on the market........

My Photo

I am a girl that cant do anything diy wise so I need to learn thats my resolution

My Photo

Not being in a position financially any more to pay people to come in and do my decorating I am focussed this year on doing everything myself. Things I have never done before, such as wallpapering and small joinery jobs, are on my list of things to master before this year is out.
There is a lot of work needing done on my house, but I am excited to give it all a go and know I will feel a massive sense of achievement when it is finally all done, and I can say I did it myself :)
