No one today associates renovation with saving money. Even with careful planning it is impossible to predict what it will cost exactly. Here’s how to dispel the myth and make living room remodeling as inexpensive as possible.
The Dremel 3000 Multi-Purpose High Speed Tool
Install a skirting board
After you buy a new skirting board you may have to ask how to install it? We usually hire a handyman without even thinking that we can do it ourselves. Use your Dremel 3000 with the Dremel EZ SpeedClic wood cutting wheel SC544 to cut the baseboard to the correct angle. Swap the baseboard with the 1.2mm bit from the 628 and make a few holes and use stripped nails to fix the skirting board to the wall.
If your chair needs restoration
Over the years you may find that wooden chairs have a rough surface and a variety of scratches. Gently sand the surface with the Dremel 3000 with the Dremel EZ SpeedClic 180 and 280 grit Resilient Abrasive Finishing Blade 511S . The recommended speed is 20,000 rpm. Then with a soft brush or cloth spray a matching color on the polished surface. You can also use colorless varnish or olive oil to protect the chair from damage and restore the shine.
Doorknob pad restoration
Over time, due to oxidation of metal, the door handle cover can tarnish. But this doesn’t mean you need to replace the entire latch. You can do this at home. To do this remove it from the latch and spray with paint mixed with solvent. Let it dry completely, then remove excess paint around the edge of the trim using the Dremel 3000 with the polishing wheel 429 . This will level the surface. Finish it off with spray paint to refresh the color.
How to replace screws less often
We often find that over time the grooves on the iron screws wear out. Here’s a tip: in our case we’re restoring a screw with a single groove that needs to be removed from the electrical box. Use the Dremel 3000 with the 5-Pack metal cutting wheel SC456 to cut a new slot in the head of the screw. Now you can remove it with a screwdriver.
