Freeeedooommm through the DIY Guide for Girls: the book that can take you on that journey from depending on others (you know who you are!) to ‘fix-it’ to the glorious freedom of getting it done yourself.
Need to start on the path with baby steps? The Guide takes you through small projects to help build your skillset. It also covers the basics of how your home works so you can make informed decisions about what’s wrong and how to deal with it yourself or hire a professional if you haven’t got the time.
All the nuts and bolts are presented with a dash of humour and lively artwork to keep your spirit level straight.
I’m delighted with the book and plan to supplement it with specialist courses at the Goodlife Centre to get all my projects done.
