There’s something extremely satisfying about rolling up your sleeves and putting in some good-old-fashioned elbow grease.
But first, check your insurance to see what's covered
If you have AAMI’s Accidental Damage at Home optional cover for an extra premium, you may be covered if you accidentally spill paint on a rug – or damage your belongings in any other way – while working on a small DIY project. Read the PDS for more info on limits, terms and conditions.
Now, here's our list of easy DIY jobs to try over the weekend.
Create your own herb garden
Cap off your couch
Put up picture rails
Makeover your furniture
Change the door knobs
It sounds simple, but replacing old door handles with shiny new ones can bring a whole new look to your home. Before you get started, think about the kind of handles you want to install. Are you looking to add some art deco charm with vintage-style knobs and handles, or would you like a more modern look? Hot tip: Locks and handles fit together in different ways, so read the instructions.
If you work hard on your home you’ll want to ensure it’s looked after properly. Luckily, at AAMI we offer top-notch home building and home contents insurance.
