Ready to look forward to Summer and those backyard cookouts? Why not turn your attentions toward building a cooler cart? Remember the old adage: measure twice, cut once. There’s nothing worse than finishing a project like this one, only to realize that your cooler won’t fit!

Maybe you’ve never had to be the one doing it all before. That’s okay too. Here is a list of 5 home improvement skills that everyone should have.

1. How to hang a picture – You’re no longer hanging posters in your dorm room. You’re in the big leagues now and sticky tack just won’t cut it.

2. How to install a hanging shelf – Make sure that you locate the studs so that your shelf and its contents stay put.

3. How to stain wood – Even the greatest project can stumble at the finish line if it isn’t stained and finished properly.

4. How to reseal a window – A faulty seal on a window can mean higher heating and cooling costs, not to mention water damage to your sills.

5. How to replace a shower head – This one really couldn’t be easier. Just buy a new shower head, unscrew the old one, and replace the Teflon tape before screwing on the new shower head.
