Top Ten DIY Hacks!

August 20, 2014 - Updated: August 20, 2014

10 DIY Hacks

1. Rubber Band:  Place a rubber band around an open paint can to wipe your brush on, and keep paint off the side of the can.

2. Comb:  Turn a large comb into a “knuckle saver” by using it to steady a nail before hammering.

 

3. Post-it Note:  Stick up a post-it note to catch drilling debris

4. Foil Paper:  Use foil paper as a tray liner for your next paint job. (So much more fetching and true to the tray than a plastic bag.)

 

5. Bread Tag:  Use a bread tag to hold the end of a tape roll.

6. Toothpaste:  Dab toothpaste onto the back of a picture frame and then press it against the wall as a guide for the nails. The marks can be easily wiped off.

 

7. Laundry Basket:  Create polka-dot walls with a piece of an old laundry basket.

8. Cellophane:  Rip off a sheet of cellophane to wrap around a toilet when painting.
 

9. Magnet:  Corral nails onto a magnet you’ve glued to your hammer, instead of holding them dangerously in your mouth.

10. Paint Stirrer:  Keep track of what hue you use in each room with a bundle of paint stirrers dipped in the colour of each room and then labelled with marker.
