Young House Love blog is a great source for inspiration if you have DIY block. (Which I always do.) Looking at what these two have achieved with their home makes it look easy. Look at their before and afters here. It makes the big things we need to do seem absolutely tiny in comparison. (New kitchen floor, extend and repave the seating area in the garden – I cannot use the word patio, I am afraid – paint the front door. And, from where I'm sitting, one of the lightbulbs in the living room needs changing. James, are you READING THIS?)
And if you've got time to kill, look at how they did their wedding all by themselves, in their back garden. Although I have to question how they did wine for 75 guests on $100 dollars. That just would not fly in the UK.
