MAIN Arrow to Home LifeHome Life Arrow to Home Life - Do It YourselfDo It Yourself

Ah, brave soul ... venturing where only the most courageous dare to tread.

All kidding aside, the opportunity to learn something new and valuable is one that any homeowner should grasp with both hands, if only to save lots of cash on professional repairs.

There are plenty of us who have attempted do it yourself electrical, do it yourself plumbing, or do it yourself carpentry or other home repair projects without any experience and "the Web is probably the most valuable tool you can use" — or so says Tom Brady, a recent home repair newbie.

Tom recently fired up his home computer to learn how to repair a kitchen faucet, then later went on to replace an entire bathroom sink. He also walked away with a new-found confidence and pride in a job well done. "Searching forums, home project communities and online hardware stores are a complete education," he adds, "and if I can do it, anybody can!."

Afraid to experiment? Don't be. In addition to traditional home projects, you can find more surprisingly clever DIY tips around the Web such as this insanely easy bookshelf made of two ladders and planks of wood:
