DIY or Hire it Out?!

We live in a world where it's trendy to be a DIY-er. Pinterest has made DIY projects look so appealing and fun, but, sometimes, we need to realize our limits. We've all seen those "Pinterest fails," right? There are several things to consider when getting ready for a home improvement project, and it's very important to find out if you should DIY or hire a professional.

2. Do you have the knowledge and tools you need?

3. Do you have the time and stamina?

4. Do you feel like dealing with any needed permits or licenses?
