Looking for some easy home repair hacks, or rather do you have some things that need fixing around your house, but either don’t think you have the time, skills or money required? Turns out, many home repair projects can be done with some genius shortcuts, and was I ever happy to find them. My handyman is probably  not so happy about this, and yours won’t be either! I fixed the rotten edging around my bathroom mirror and patched the holes my boys managed to put in the playroom wall, all by myself.  I am super proud of myself, and already have plans to spend that money somewhere else, too! Check out these cool DIY home repair hacks and try some for yourself.
