At our house right now, we have 2 light switches that need to be fixed, a toilet seat needs to be replaced, the bathroom needs to be painted and the molding around the fireplace needs to be fixed.

We all have chores and DIY projects that we seem to put off, but we're not alone.  In Tuscaloosa right now, the average home needs 9 repairs. If you're the average DIY'er, you get 3 to 5 projects done a year, leaving 4 to 7 undone.

According to the New York Postthe top 5 home improvement tasks are...

  1. Painting.
  2. Remodeling the bathroom.
  3. Installing new carpet.
  4. Landscaping projects.
  5. Remodeling the kitchen.

They all look so easy on HGTV, and there's a YouTube video for everything, so what are we waiting for?  Is this the weekend?
