How handy are you and what have you attempted? Tell us your tales of woe/success.
DIY does not sit well with my perfectionist nature. Can never be arsed doing the prep properly and when shit starts to go a bit wrong mentally my brain starts to say ‘fuck it, it’s ruined now - might as well rush it.’ Nothing quite as dispiriting as some DIY that just isn’t quite right and you’re forced to put up with a botched job because of the effort and money you put into it and the lack of a guarantee that it’ll be any better if you do it all over again.
Not bad at painting but inevitably paint gets where it shouldn’t and where glossing is concerned there will always be a big sticky drip somewhere.
Reasonable at doing laminate flooring but the fiddly bits round radiators and the like are never right. If I’m doing a lot of it, like a few rooms in a shortish period then I’ve usually nailed it by the time I get to the last bit but that leaves all the shoddiness at the beginning.
Fixing things to walls is not a strength of mine and I can never get rawlplugs to work as they should. Plasticky twats.
Tomorrow I’ve putting down some vinyl flooring in a bathroom. I fully expect to fuck it up somehow but strangely feel reasonably confident and it doesn’t strike me as a difficult task but hey ho.
Anyway, enough about me…
