Have you been looking around your house recently and realised that it's in need of a lick of paint here and a patch-up there? If so, it might be time to get on with your spring cleaning and DIY. Helen has found some DIY deals to help you get your home spruced up.
Spring is a time to throw open your doors and windows and enjoy the sunshine. As all that bright light filters into your home, you might notice that some things are looking a bit worse for wear, and there are a few tasks that really need your attention.
Whether you're just adding a lick of paint here and there, or you're looking to do a full-scale renovation, there might be something to help you do it for a bit less here. All these DIY offers were found on 09.05.13, but it's possible that prices have been changed or items have been removed by the retailer since then. Prices may or may not include VAT and postage and packaging.
