The Discovery Channel's Tool-Belt Diva urges women everywhere to drop the honey-do list and "Honey, do it yourself!" With more than 250,000 women enrolled in Home Depot's Do-It-Herself workshops in the last two years, women are definitely taking the lead in America's home improvement game. Now that women are making more of the home improvement decisions than ever before, it's only natural that they would look to one of the most recognized home improvement experts on television- Norma Vally, the Tool-Belt Diva. But Chix Can Fixoffers much more than just construction tips; it inspires women to take on home repairs-from wiring a light fixture to repairing drywall to fixing that leaky faucet for good-with confidence and gusto. A comprehensive resource to common home repairs-including plumbing, electricity, walls, floors, doors, and windows- Chix Can Fixoffers easy-to-follow instructions and more than two hundred illustrations for those who are new to plunging a toilet, as well as more intricate tasks for the seasoned DIYer, like installing a ceiling fan. Complete with safety tips, dos and don'ts, expert advice, quick shortcuts, and Vally's own lively commentary, Chix Can Fixis the must-have guide for the wannabe handywoman.
