I bought a house and did ever bit of the work myself. And you know what- I saved 10s of thousands of dollars.. with my hard work. Not someone I paid to do it for me.

I always find it interesting that these articles are touted as the people are actually doing the work themselves.. then you go and find out they pay other people to do the work for them, yet make it seem like it was all their own hard work.

To take a beautiful cherry wood staircase and railing and paint it!

How sad that the real craftsmanship had to be covered up.

great tip when renovating a house is to think "updated" rather than "trendy" in terms of design. If the cost of renovating a house is spent on creating a trendy look, it only means that more money will be needed when that look becomes outdated, and this is not likely to increase the property value
