You are not handy? Here are 8 reasons to assume
The abundance of DIY tutorials and deco currently flooding the magazines, books or the Internet is said to facilitate the establishment of small (or large) unique items. Only here is: everyone gets to do wonders (giving the impression that it is very easy) then you, you’d rather spend your Saturday mornings as far as pots of paint and tools! If you feel different (e) because you do not want to make your own furniture from the objects found, go to the garage sand and paint chines furniture, or make your own preserves, rest assured: you are not alone). Better yet, here are 8 reasons to abandon yourself without feeling guilty.

1. Save the energy and precious time
I noticed that all the tutorials that present a draft as «easy», «fast» or (my favorite) «feasible in an hour» are often, say optimists …. Although there are exceptions, any project that starts with a long list of tools and / or equipment with which you are not familiar will take you at least two times longer than expected.

2. Support artists and artisans
It’s not because someone made a wall decoration from a circle embroidery to the room of her child that you are forced to realize so: you might as well buy. Many artists and very talented craftsmen are trying to live their creations, and buy handmade products is a way to support them.

3. The do it yourself does not mean that it would be cheaper
It’s the little secret of DIY: Once you have purchased all the necessary materials for your project, and perhaps the equivalent redeemed after having completely missed your shot (I belong unfortunately this category), you may you realize that it would costs you much cheaper to buy the ready-made pieces. Instead of giving a facelift is a very old furniture abyss in a depot-sale, why not spend a few euros more to buy furniture vintage you can use right away?
4. Be honest about your skills
Today we tend to group all DIY projects under the same label, regardless of the tools or skills needed. This often people think that DIY skills are interchangeable, which is not the case. It’s not because you have painted a table or made a curtain hem you’ll be able to necessarily retapisser a chair or build an etagere from pipe fittings. Be honest with yourself about your skills and call someone else to realize that you can not or do not know how. This will avoid disaster!

5. Put safety
The errors in the electrical or plumbing projects are at the top of the list of potential disasters, but there are many other dangerous spaces in a house when you get into DIY. Be prudent (e) and hire a professional for work that could have adverse consequences on you or a member of your family.
6. Indulge by the immediate satisfaction
Go into a store, find something you like and bring it home. There you go ! In an instant, your living space has improves.
7. Allow yourself a copy others yourselfers
I possess at least a half-dozen books sewing and knitting, while I do not knit and I’m almost unable to sew. Why buy in this case? Because they can serve as sources of inspiration! Good books to creatifs recreation can be prove to be excellent sources of inspiration for choosing your color palettes and realize your decoration of interior. It is quite normal to be inspired by those who do manual work without feeling obliged to do so.

8. Enjoy your home
If you are happier (if) without project has ended half cluttering your living space, assume it. Be in harmony with yourself and with what you love to do, and give up everything else.
