HOW TO EASILY REVAMP YOUR HOME WHEN YOU ARE NOT HANDY.

I’m not even going to pretend I’m handy. When it comes to remodelling the bathroom or adding a simple backsplash, I kind of run and hide. Because a) I procrastinate and b) it sounds hard. Well I found a life hack that my fellow non-handy friends will loooooove.
