This post is in collaboration with the DIYZ® app. All opinions of apps and companies that help me complete DIY projects are my own.
Last summer, my family and I bought our first house. We were so excited to finally have a place of our own. We had a ton of decorating ideas and fun things we wanted to do. But, as any homeowner can tell you, the projects begin to pile up quickly. One project that I had been putting off was painting part of the dining room. It was my white whale… more specifically, my white wall. I was counting on the DIYZ® app to help me conquer the beast!

Painting Properly With DIYZ.
I wasn’t the most handy guy. Usually there would be five or six extras holes after I was done trying to hang a picture… That is the complete truth! My wife and daughter would cringe and run for cover when they saw me pick up a tool of any kind. After we moved into the new house, I was dedicated to becoming as handy as possible. I actually began to get pretty good at fixing, installing and even doing some light electrical work. But, for whatever reason, painting a room was a project that really intimidated me.
My wife suggested that we make it a family project. She and my daughter weren’t going to let dear old dad suffer alone! It actually got me excited about the project. So I downloaded the DIYZ® app on my mobile device and we found an amazing tutorial about painting a room. Step by step, all the materials that would be required and more importantly… They didn’t make me feel stupid! The segmented videos were good and weren’t intimidating . After watching the tutorial, I felt like anybody could paint a room, even me.
The DIYZ® app features a large library of DIY projects – providing DIYers of all skill levels with step-by-step guides and segmented videos to tackle home improvement projects. One of the great features you can get only from DIYZ, is the option to call a Pro Advisor. If you get stuck or have any questions while doing your project, you can video-chat with one of their many professional contractors. The Pro Advisors can also answer any how-to questions that inevitably comes up along the way, especially if you get stuck in the middle of your project..
Now my brain is full of things that I want to do around the house and I have a lot more confidence thanks to the DIYZ® app.
