A pipe burst and I didn’t know what to do. I frantically searched Google for a solution and I could not find the basic information that I needed to be able to fix the problem, I panicked, hammering tiles off of the wall to reach the source of the leak. I ended up calling an emergency plumber, they located the stop tap and switched off the leak.
I could have done that If I had known how to find it.
It was scary and I felt disempowered. Useless. So that day, I decided that I would do what it took to learn the basics about house maintenance and to be a role model for people who are new to DIY, to help them feel that they can learn to do the things that they need to know to care for and to renovate a home. I took to social media and began sharing DIY hacks, tips, and How-To’s to make your work easier.
Wherever you are in your DIY journey I hope that you hear something in this that encourages you in your faith in yourself and your ability to make the things you want, happen.
