Our DIY projects blog is inspired by our love of different hobbies – gardening, cooking, and DIY. The latter is not obsessional, rather, we enjoy the ‘do it yourself’ approach to saving money! So, with these thoughts to hand, we’re turning ReadyHobbyGo® into a blog that inspires other like-minded people to do the same. Through our DIY blog you can read stories about our – past and present – DIY projects.
Peeps Behind ReadyHobbyGo® Blog
We are mummy and daddy to Murphy the cockapoo. Our day jobs are unassuming. When we are not working, we love spending time at home, especially in our garden. Our decision to share stories about the DIY projects we have carried out in our home is about spreading the word that doing it yourself is not just a money saving process, it’s also a creative process. Give it a try for yourself, you may love it!
Amateur DIY Gardeners & Designers
You don’t need to be a qualified landscape gardener or interior designer to be successful at DIY! Our approach to different DIY projects is simple. Before we begin any DIY project, we ask ourselves 3 very important questions. Can we do it? Can we save money doing it ourselves? Can we do a better job, or equally as good a job, as the professionals? Refer to these same questions before you begin a project.
Quality DIY Materials & DIY Tools
Make no mistake about it, buying quality DIY materials and using quality DIY tools will make or break your DIY project. Would you expect a local professional tradesperson to do the same project using sub-standard tools and/or cheap materials? Of course not! The internet provides a wealth of DIY tips and advice about buying the best tools and materials to use for your next DIY project. Quality always wins!
Some Projects Are Not DIY Friendly!
Whilst anyone with a practical head on their shoulders can save money by taking the DIY approach, some projects are not DIY friendly! As an example, certain electrical or building works require you to employ a specialist tradesperson! When it comes to these kinds of projects, always prioritise your own life – health and well-being – ahead of saving money! Follow these rules and enjoy your DIY journey.
