DIY home improvement inspiration

I’m really inspired by a good friend who was able to improve the looks of her home through do-it-yourself home improvement projects that she and her husband initiated. They change paint and even install DIY sticky floor tiles. I told my husband that we can get some inspiration from them that instead of hiring someone to do all the repairs inside their home; they do the difficult tasks by themselves.

This year we were able to finally fix our children’s rooms. We hired carpenters to do the ceiling and roof repair. Now we are thinking of having both rooms painted. And we plan on doing it by ourselves. Hubby and I need to invest on paints and brushes to start the project soon.

Painting the roof green

We have saved a total of P4,800 or more than $100 for the gallons of paints (3 cans remain unopened) used for the painting of our roof. Hubby got the paints from the office. They were not actually free, but the total cost was deducted from his accumulated number of leaves. The good thing about it is that we didn’t shell out a single peso or scout for silver eagle prices for the painting job. Hubby did the painting all by himself. Great job, hon!
