If you are currently having a dry spell regarding decorating suggestions please put your feet up for a few minutes and have a read.

YouTube

YouTube is probably not everyone’s idea of a social media site, but we think it as an excellent source of useful ideas for home improvement. Sure, it has more than its fair share of cute puppies and dodgy video shorts, but it also hosts some awesome DIY tips. You will find thousands of clips that show you how to do whatever it is that you need advice on. Most of them include a helpful narrative and you get to see the whole project from beginning to end. There are also some funny DIY disaster videos to let you know how NOT to tackle that tricky job. As well as searching for your desired activity, there are also a number of very helpful channels that feature home improvement and nothing else! The best ones to look out for are Ehow.home and AskTheBulder.com. If you are feeling brave, why not upload your own project on there and see what lovely comments your handywork attracts?
