HLN-HOMELIVING:NORTH,Tuesday,October18,20113 DO-IT-YOURSELF TOM KEEPS IT SIMPLE DIY GUIDE FOR THE WEEKEND WARRIORS Television celebrity and carpenter Tom Williams is launching a DIY book. DO-IT-YOURSELF projects around the home are always challenging for many – even with best of intentions. They can be a rewarding experience if tackled properly. Not only can you save money, but get the satisfaction of completing the project yourself. But as an average home ow- ner would tell you, it takes great motivation to get started. Television celebrity Tom Wil- liams has put together a book of easy projects that can be han- dled by anyone. According to Mr Williams, replacing that old letter box or finishing that painting project is as easy as steps one, two, three in his book, DIY Around The Home: Easy Projects For The Weekend. Full of ideas, it is a practical, user-friendly guide to some of the most common DIY projects to improve and enhance your home inside and out. Mr Williams sets out each project in a practical, easy-to- follow way as he leads you through them with step-by-step instructions and images. Factfile: Tom Williams began his TV career hosting many DIY home shows. He is also a licensed carpenter and qualified builder. TRENDS REPAIRS GO ON BACK BURNER Many jobs go in the too-hard basket. ‘‘GOTTA Gunna’’ at your place? Chances are you have, accord- ing to a Newspoll survey that shows Australia is a nation of procrastinators when it comes to fixing things in the home. The survey results show that 62 per cent of Australian adults admit to having basic repair jobs around the home waiting to be done. What’s worse, eight in 10 of these respondents are ‘‘Gun- nas’’, saying that while they were going to do it, they hadn’t yet got around to fixing even the most urgent repair jobs. Commissioned by Skill Aust- ralia, the survey identified that after time and cost, lack of skills or appropriate tools were reasons why Australians hadn’t got around to completing these basic repair jobs, regardless of their age, marital status, in- come levels or location. ❏Visit www.skil.com.au or call 1300 30 70.
