In the realm of home improvement, there are a multitude of tasks that can be done to improve the overall feel of your home, both big and small. However, sometimes these jobs can be glossed over, maybe the complexity of said task is daunting, or there are so many small fixes you don't know where to even begin, perhaps you simply just do not have the time. Fret no longer, this week at Rosie On The House we cover different Do It Yourself jobs that can be completed in a weekend, or even a single day!...
