Handy hints for lots of the fiddly jobs around the house,
This review is from: Sarah Beeny's 100 DIY Jobs (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A simple, practical guide to some of standard things that come up when trying to look after your home, from unblocking a sink to laying ceramic floor tiles.
There is plenty here. After an initial Back to Basics section on the tools you need, it has 8 sections: bathrooms and kitchens; doors and windows; curtains and blinds; floors and walls; painting and decorating; storage and furniture; heating and insulation; home safety and security. Some typical tasks have been chosen and each one lists the tools needed, sets out how to get started, what to do and finally so useful “how to nail it” tips that usually flag the key pitfalls and how to avoid them.
A useful book to have around for the non-expert DIYer, with lots of ideas that can be the difference between doing a job and doing it well.
