“In life, it doesn’t make sense to hire someone to fix a hole in a wall.” It is indeed difficult to contradict the statement of Stéphanie Lévesque, who has made it her mission to show that it is quite possible to do minor work and even more ambitious renovations yourself.
In fact, the trained cabinetmaker, who also collaborates with La Presse , is far from the only one to feel the need to communicate his tricks of the trade. There are several tools and resources to help those who are thinking of getting their hands dirty or want to know a few more tips. Starting with the websites where the headings rake wide both in terms of decoration ideas and renovation tips. This is notably the case of the L’Atelier section, of the Rona site, or of Truc construction, which offers dozens of advice capsules.
For a slightly less didactic approach, there is of course YouTube, which has its share of bloggers specializing in renovations. However, many are in English… and many French-speaking youtubers come from France.
