- UK Oak Doors DIY Calendar: December
The year is almost over! December should be a month for celebration and relaxation, so put away those paint brushes and give yourself a well-deserved pat on the back. You will, of course, spend some time putting up the tree and the other decorations, but you can do this at your leisure. If you've been working hard on renovating your home over the last few months then you should have a house to be proud of, and this is your chance to show it off. Continue reading
- DIY Calendar: November - How to Prepare Your Home for Winter
By the time November comes around, you're probably ready for a holiday - not only from interior decorating, but work and day to day life too! The days are getting shorter, the weather is getting colder, and it's tempting to just curl up in front of the TV with a hot drink and try to forget about how dreary it is outside.
- DIY Calendar: October - Hanging Wallpaper Like a Pro
With the changing of the seasons, many people find themselves craving a change of scenery in their homes too. One way to achieve this is by sprucing up the wallpaper in their kitchen and living room. Washable wallpapers can last a long time, but eventually you will want to get rid of your old designs and replace them with something a little different.
- DIY Calendar: September - Stripping Wallpaper and Painting Safely
September is a good time to head indoors and start looking at doing up your interior in preparation for the festive season. It's a good idea to start painting your interior in September, while the weather is still good enough for you to leave your windows open for ventilation. This month, we'll look at repainting your home safely and efficiently.
- DIY Calendar: August - Painting the Exterior Of Your Home
For most of us, August is the height of summer. The weather is glorious, the holidays are in full swing, and we all want our homes to look great so that we can be proud of them when people come round to enjoy the annual barbecue.
- DIY Calendar: July - Fixing Rotten Woodwork
July is the perfect time to start doing some outdoor DIY work. If the exterior of your home has some problems - such as rotten window frames or cracked fences, then you've probably been itching to tackle these jobs. It's a bad idea to do those kinds of tasks in the spring, however. You can be sure that no sooner than you apply the "needs 12 hours to dry" varnish, the heavens will open and your hard work will be ruined.
- DIY Calendar: June - How to Lay Tiles
By June, the weather is getting a lot warmer, and this gives you more scope for the sorts of jobs you would want to work on, however, there is more than just weather to consider when planning DIY jobs. If you have school-aged children, then June is the last month during which you'll have entire days to work uninterrupted for quite a while. The summer holidays feel like they're getting longer every year, so if you have any major jobs to get done, and don't want children underfoot while you're doing them, then now is the time to start them!
- DIY Calendar: May - Preparing the Interior Of Your Home
If you're planning on redecorating, you will want to make sure that you have a good base to start from. You spent the first few months tidying your home and cleaning the exterior, now you need to prepare the interior. Most homes have some cracks on the walls or the ceiling and around chimney flues. Homes with a significant amount of plasterboard can have cracks or chips in the walls caused by previous DIY projects gone wrong. Most of these problems are minor, however, and can be easily fixed.
