COLLINS DIY PROJECTS IN A WEEKEND

Do you have:
• A leaking tap?
• A toilet that doesn't flush properly?
• A pile of books without a shelf?

All of us have those DIY jobs that have been on our 'must do' lists for months. By suggesting targets to aim for and simple instructions to follow, this book will help you break the log jam. Included are some of the more essential and popular DIY projects together with the amount of time you need to put aside to complete them. Some tasks are very simple and should take you no longer than an hour or two. Other jobs are more time consuming, and you may have to put in a whole day or even allow for the entire weekend.
