How many women tackle DIY, including assembling flat pack furniture?

Is there anything you won’t have a go at and would rather pay or persuade someone else to get the job done?

    If I want a job done properly I do it myself!!

    I do sometimes pretend that I cant do things just so my husband can have a go. He gets annoyed when I fix things like the car and stuff!

    I do, but I am not a fan of flat packed furniture and hate instruction manuals. I find it faster not to use them LOL!.

    My wife tends to do all that stuff, she enjoys it and is good at it.
    That suits me just fine as I am rubbish at it and have no desire to be any good at it. (I can’t even wire a plug). As far as I’m concerned any minute spent with a paintbrush or tool of any sort is a minute of my life wasted.

    Any flat pack furniture is my job. My husband says I have a lot more patience than him for it and I do quite like doing it. He is apt to think he knows what goes where without looking at the instructions then starts swearing when it goes wrong.
    Preparation work when decorating is something I would pay someone to do – I cannot stand it. Filling holes and sanding them before you can get on and paper and paint – cannot be bothered with any of it, so my husband does that bit, then I do the painting.

    Since my partner died I have had to do most things. I bought a bedroom set (chest of drawers, wardrobe, bedside tables and bed) which all came flat packed. I completely decorated the whole house (never got done when we moved in) – even the hall/stairs/landing balancing on a ladder. The things I can’t do myself, others did for me, such as replacing radiators, fitting a bathroom suite, sorting the electrics and plastering. This weekend the outside toilet is coming out and the lean to is coming down. My step father is doing most of it, but I will be there with my steel toe capped boots on helping! I will have a go at most things, but won’t do anything which needs special skills.

    I do most things…painting, flat pack furniture, basic electrics. I won’t touch anything to do with gas obviously or plumbing (except basics…can change a washer in a tap for example). I prefer to get someone in to lay carpet or do tiling because I think they’d do a far better job.

    I LOVE DIY and have done a little bit of everything, except really involved electrical and plumbing jobs. Rewiring lamps and changing a faucet I do. Though when it comes to rewiring a house and putting in a new tub….I’m my husband’s helper. He bought me my own DeWalt power drill, tool bag and I usually get a new tool on holidays and birthdays. LOL

    I always do these things myself, and love it (for the most part). Now that I’m married, my husband tries to take over – I think he thinks it’s a man’s job. So I try to do that stuff before he gets home! And I have a nice set of tools a friend bought me for college graduation that I still use to this day, plus my power drill. LOVE IT!
