DIY, Tools

I often get asked what tools I use or what tools I would recommend for someone new to DIY’ing. So I thought it might be useful to put all this information in one spot below. 

I’ve also put together a more comprehensive list that’s especially geared towards DIY beginners – I know how overwhelming and intimidating it can be to walk down the tool aisle and not be sure where to invest first. My curated list will put things in perspective for you and give you a great place to start. Click here to get this free pdf resource!
