Setting up your own DIY workstation can be well worth the effort – if you’re not sure how to do so, these four tips will set you on your way
1 Just like having a home office or a craft corner, doing DIY yourself doesn't mean you need a fully kitted out workshop. However, you can save yourself a fortune by doing the little jobs around the house yourself.
2 The most important thing will be safety - keep a first aid kit handy, just in case, take off your jewellery and roll up any long sleeves to make sure you don't get anything caught in your tools.
3 All you will need to start is a small toolbox with a tape measure, hammer, screwdriver and some picture hooks - however, a small spirit level could be useful too. Then, make sure you have thoroughly researched the job you're looking to tackle.
4 Be patient and don't rush the job. Take the time to measure everything exactly, because a bad job will not be worth the effort. Concentrate and always set aside the time you need to complete it.
