What Kind of DIYer Are You? (And What You Should Do About It)

Posted by: Storganization Staff Tags: Tips, Clutter Busters, DIY

Many of us have tried at least one DIY project or two in our lifetime, but probably only a select few are as skilled as they’d like to be. No matter how DIY-savvy you are, there’s always room for improvement. We’ve identified four distinct DIY personalities and what you can do to become better at completing your projects.

 

Beginner

If the very thought of undertaking a project causes you to sweat, it stands to reason that you probably don’t know where to start.

What you can do:

Relax and start small. Look for some easy projects to put under your belt and boost your confidence. Make sure you have the right tools for the job and don’t take on more than you can handle. And don’t forget to keep practicing!

 

Spontaneous

If you’ve ever found yourself struck by the sudden urge to paint the walls or rearrange the furniture, you’re probably an impromptu DIYer.

What you can do:

While there’s nothing wrong with tackling some DIY projects in the spur of the moment, you will be more successful with proper planning. Spend at least five minutes thinking about what you want and need to do before getting started to avoid any surprises.

 

Overwhelmed

Do half-painted walls and unfinished projects clutter your home and haunt your to-do list? If so, you might be an overwhelmed DIYer.

What you can do:

Take an inventory of your unfinished projects and determine if the cause was a lack of interest or poor time management that stalled their completion. No matter the reason, focus on only one project at a time to motivate yourself to stay on task and finish what you start.

 

Experienced

If you approach all your projects with the right tools and materials and find that nearly every single one goes off without a hitch, congratulations! You’re a detailed and accomplished DIYer!
