DIY VERSUS LEAVE IT TO THE PROS Wondering which projects are easy to tackle yourself and which are best left to the pros? One of the most important things to consider before busting out the reciprocal saw is how forgiving you’ll be if you mess up. If you’re the kind of homeowner that will only see the one crooked tile in an entire bathroom remodel,

it may be a good idea to save yourself the agony and hire an expert. However, if you believe small flaws in a home give it character then go ahead. Just keep in mind future buyers might not feel the same. Regardless of which type of person you are, there are

a few projects even professionals agree can be done by anyone. Painting a room, changing out cabinet hardware and hanging wallpaper are simple tasks you can do

to revitalize a space all on your own. For more difficult tasks - find a reputable pro.
