I was able to remove my old kitchen faucet and update it with a new one, all on my own! I’m super proud of myself. I’ve always had someone else do that sort of thing. Tomorrow I’m going to change out a bathroom faucet.

I am so impressed! I love this kind of success from women who tackled the mechanical tasks that often we weren't trained for. You did great!

Thanks everyone! I did watch one YouTube video and I was good to go. I got a tool set for my birthday and Iíve been having fun learning how to do some little projects and updates. My dad has always helped me but I wanted to learn too.

Nicely done! That's why I love YouTube videos for home repair help. We watched one about fixing the toilet and another one about the drain lever in the bathtub.

I'm super impressed. I am not super-handy but will try things, however I always hire someone for electrical and plumbing.

Excellent job! I do a lot of diy stuff around my house and nothing beats the sense of accomplishment I feel when I complete a project. Also, learning a new skill is always a positive.

I'm incredibly impressed! I would be so afraid I'd do something wrong and flood my house. I'm too much of a Nervous Nelly for DIY.

Very impressive!! I rely on DH for a lot of things around the house but I am slowly trying to learn to do them my own so you are a role model to me

Good for you! I think it is such an accomplishment when we do something outside our norm. Feels great. Your project looks great too!

Gotta love my DH, but he is this way. Fortunately, Home Depot is just a few miles from home. He is quite handy, but doesnít always think things through.

He saved us quite a bit of $ last week when he installed a new dishwasher. But I had to leave the room several times and bite my lip to keep from complaining.

Congratulations on learning a new skill! Maybe you can hire yourself out as a handyWOman!
