Why I no longer feel compelled to hire a HANDYMAN? I have resolved to be a HANDYWOMAN for all my odd jobs that only require a few accessible tools and easy directions!!!!
I waited for over a month to install my IKEA window treatment hardware. Why? I thought the job required hiring someone and spending money to be done right.
Well guess what? I was wrong after driving to my local HOME DEPOT I purchased a Ryobi power drill and step stool for $50.00. The Gorilla Ladder was a great buy and eliminates the need for a heavy, bulky ladder. If you are between 5′-6′ in height the 2nd step gives you an 8′ reach. It folds easily which makes it great for storage.
A Ryobi power drill comes with a tool bag. Drills bits are not included with the drill so you will have to purchase drill bits separately.
In addition to purchasing the drill bits I also purchased a kit with a mask, safety googles and ear plugs. The total purchase was about $11. These items were purchased from LOEWS.
The overall job took me less than 2 hours to install hardware on four windows.
