What Houzz contributors are saying:
4. Accept your skill set. All do-it-yourself projects tend to get lumped together these days, no matter which skills or tools they require, misleading folks into thinking that DIY skills are interchangeable. They are not. If you have repainted a table or sewn a curtain hem, that does not necessarily mean you will be able to reupholster an armchair or build a shelving unit out of pipe fittings. Be honest about your skills and pay others to do what you can’t, to avoid DIY disaster.
