Helpful Hints for the Handy Homeowner

by Special to Casa Latina on March 31, 2010

in You Can Do It!

Woman Drilling Homeowners across the country are loading up their tool belts and taking on home improvement projects on their own. This DIY crowd is looking for ways to make the home better while keeping expenses down.

The experts at Black & Decker have some tips and tools to make four of the most common projects a little easier.

Rejuvenate Cabinets. Instead of replacing your kitchen cabinets, stain them for a fresh, new look. Cabinet Sanding

  • Take accurate measurements before you buy. Inside and outside mounted blinds are measured differently. You can find measuring guides online to help you get just the right fit.
  • Open the package carefully. Don’t use a razor blade or knife to open the boxes because you could accidently cut a cord.
  • Predrill pilot holes for screws to avoid splitting the work piece. Use a slower speed and moderate pressure. A steady and patient approach works best with wood, to avoid slipping and misaligning holes.
  • Screwdriving in difficult to reach areas is made simple with t...
