Home Living : July 20th 2010
2 HLS - HOME LIVING: SOUTH, Tuesday, July 20, 2010 Girl power shines » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING More women around the globe are showing an increasing interest in DIY projects around the house -- picking up power tools. Years ago, if you encountered two women talking about nails, chances are they were referring to the manicured kind. These days, you might well find them debating the benefits of galvanised versus stainless steel, or talking about giving their home a coat of paint. Long overlooked as remodellers and do-it-yourselfers, more women are picking up the power tools and putting them to use. While women have always played a role in remodelling choices and room design, what has changed is how women are taking on projects. They've realised home improvement projects are not rocket science, and with a few easy tools and some creative thinking, they can easily be done. That's why Sunlite Hardware Bondi Junction, which is actively involved in its community, organised a ladies night out recently to educate women on the basics of DIY projects. ''We have so many female customers who want to learn about hardware so they don't have to rely on men to do the odd job around the house,'' managing director Steven Czeiger said. Women were taught the basics as well as the latest trends in paints and home decorating trends, how to prepare a paint brush, cleaning and paint preparation, and preparing walls for painting. Sunlite Hardware has three stores, in Pitt and York streets in Sydney and 452 Oxford St Mall, Bondi Junction. Call Kathy on 9388 9944.
