Have a go at DIY projects as long as they’re safe. If it doesn’t work out, get a pro­fes­sional to help you.

If you’re look­ing to cre­ate mid­cen­tury style, hair­pin legs are great – you can just screw them into any piece of fur­ni­ture to re­vamp it.

Re­search on­line for help with build­ing fur­ni­ture. Pin­ter­est is great for ideas. We came across lots of in­spir­ing projects.

Keep to your plan: peo­ple will com­ment, but not ev­ery­one is go­ing to like the same style as you. Don’t let neg­a­tive com­ments get in the way – it’s your vi­sion.

Be aware there will be jobs you don’t like and that might take a long time to com­plete. We both got fed up with the paint and pa­per strip­ping, but we slot­ted more achiev­able projects in be­tween and that kept us fo­cused.
