Yes, You Can! 10 Repairs You Can Do Yourself

A friend of ours has a unique talent: he can decipher an IKEA instruction sheet, successfully tackle a Rubik's cube and hang an arrangement of pictures right the first time. His children discovered this talent of his early on; a common phrase when they were small was "Daddy, fix it," and whether the broken object was a balloon or a toy, somehow he managed to repair it (okay, the balloon was a little tricky). We asked him his secret and he replied, "Patience, creativity and a sense of humor." Call on these traits in yourself to tackle some repairs around your home.
