Podcasts are episodic, genre-based digital files that users can download or stream live. They have grown in popularity over the years because they cover a seemingly endless supply of topics and are entertaining and informative. Today, most podcasts are only in audio format, but video podcasts still exist and have gained a resurgence due to COVID. Below are six podcasts that crafters and DIY enthusiasts might find helpful.
There are many shows online that make DIY home renovation projects seem effortless. The reality is that there is more than just a TV host; there is an entire team working diligently behind the scenes to make a design come to life. There is also an unseen, actual budget that is beyond reach for the average viewing audience member. For the people looking to spice up their current home with inexpensive flair, they do not have to spend a fortune to be happy. Even the smallest personal touch can make a house feel more like your own.
We live in an exciting time of fun, DIY-based home improvement projects. It no longer matters whether a person has a design degree or a specialized skill in architectural software. The average crafty American can now follow along while instructional experts or other average Americans create magic. In doing so, they have taken items that were previously seen as unimaginative and industrial and given them a new purpose. Perhaps the most exciting thing to enter this renaissance is the pallet.
If this unprecedented quarantine has any silver lining, it’s that DIY projects are on the rise. For people looking to sell their homes down the road, this is an excellent opportunity to save money on small maintenance issues and enhancements by doing them personally. Depending on a person’s skill level, some projects will lead to a higher asking price for a home.

If you are a DIY aficionado, then the holiday season is a great time to spruce up your house. Small, manageable projects are perfect for making you feel productive in a short period of time. Instant gratification about completing a job well-done is magnified by all the oohs and aahs you will get from holiday visitors. Here are a few easy ideas that will make a huge difference.
With all of the DIY home improvement shows on television these days, it’s easy to get caught up in the idea of being your own handyman. Not only will you save money on the costs of parts and labor, but you’ll be able to feel the huge moment of pride and relief at the end when you get to admire the big reveal. One of the issues with seeing things on tv is that they are sometimes portrayed in a false-positive light. The people on-screen might have a team of professionals assisting them, plus a post-production crew to ensure that the entire project seems fun and effortless. Even when they hit a bump in the road along the way, there’s always a happy ending and the project almost seems better off because of the happy little accident. For those of us who are not yet experts in the field of DIY, there are smaller goals to tackle that can still provide us with that satisfying sense of accomplishment we’re searching for.
In this glorious age of how-to videos on YouTube, reality home improvement television, and the expansive, inviting aisles of home improvement stores like Lowe’s and Home Depot, it is no wonder that more and more people are trying their own hand at DIY projects. By definition, the term applies to people undertaking projects at home such as decorating, making repairs, and building objects without the aid of a professional.
