Family and dog

Build a doghouse

If you’re a proud pet owner, what better way is there to spend a weekend than by crafting something special for your four-legged friend. A doghouse is relatively easy to put together and doesn’t require many tools. It’s also a fantastic project to get the kids involved who can get creative and find their inner artist by painting the house.

Timber deck with furniture

Decorate your deck

There are plenty of ways to spruce up your deck! Replace your old outdoor furniture or improve your seating area with stylish cushions and throws, add lushes of pot plants to your deck, or create a cosy ambience with outdoor fairy lights.

Make the switch

If you’re looking for a little style change in your home that doesn’t require a month’s work, then changing your light switches can be a great solution. Clipsal light switches come in many different styles and once a licenced electrician has installed the grid plates you can simply change the skin of the switch yourself.

Get gardening

Keep your garden vibrant by weeding it thoroughly and adding fertiliser to add those necessary nutrients for the plants to thrive. Pot overgrown plants into larger pots and get started on planning your autumn garden.
