The coming weekend is longer than normal as we have the last Bank Holiday Monday until the end of August – with many people hoping to enjoy 3 days off from the normal 9 to 5 routine.
With an extra day to get them completed, there are no excuses to put off those DIY jobs any longer.
Our regular blog readers will know all about the project undertaken by Karen back in April – stripping and repainting her front door. We have to say that it does look great but of course highlighted the poor state of the garage door!
Karen says ‘The garage door has only been painted once so there is no need for it to be fully stripped back to bare wood, as the surface is fairly sound. I am hoping to get it sanded and possibly undercoated on Saturday, giving me a little bit of lea way time wise. The weather will be key too as the front door is fairly sheltered, but the garage door is not. I’m confident this will be a much easier job.’
Whatever job you may be planning for the Bank Holiday weekend, ask yourself whether it is something you can safely do yourself. Also be sure that if you don’t get it finished that it wont cause too much of a problem if your project runs over.
