For a nation of DIY enthusiasts like the Brits, that’s either a disaster waiting to happen or the first breaths of the greatest summer DIY project on record! But perhaps the greatest immediate gift the UK isles can offer her residents is the brilliant (if occasionally fickle!) summer weather, making the perfect setting for these splendid summer home improvement projects!
New Kitchen or Bathroom

Lick of Paint
