Sydney, Australia ( January 11, 2013 - The advancement of do-it-yourself projects in modern society certainly can't be ignored as it seems every television show and magazine are dedicating a lot of their time to targeting those home owners who are looking to save a little money by taking care of their home renovation projects on their own as opposed to calling in the professionals.

Saving money, especially during a downturned economy, is certainly a fantastic idea although there are a few DIY enthusiasts of late who have been biting off a little more than they can chew. Keeping your bank account balanced is tempting but in a recent interview with self-proclaimed DIY Guru, Jack Johnston it was highlighted that those savings should never come at the cost of your own, personal safety and suggests professionals like are sometimes worth looking into if it a choice between safety or savings.

"Taking on a DIY project around your house is a brilliant thing to do. Apart from the fact that they save you a whole lot of money, they also provide you with a really fulfilling sense of satisfaction when you've gotten the job all done," said Johnston.

"There are not a lot of projects that don't leave you feeling great after you've reached the finish line: building a dog house, fixing up old furniture or even doing minor repairs around the house is all great. The added bonus is when you check your unused bank account and use some funds to go celebrate your hard work!"

The DIY expert did have a few words of warning though, for those DIY addicts who may find themselves a little bit in over their head.

"You really do need to be realistic about what you're capable of when it comes to DIY work," he continued.

"Minor repairs are one thing but when you find yourself considering taking on jobs like double-storey painting then there's no doubt you're better of calling in the professionals because when it is all said and done, they're training in safety precautions that the average person isn't aware of. It can be a difficult bullet to bite but saving your safety can be more important than saving a bit of money when it comes to the more advanced jobs."

If you find yourself facing a DIY job - like painting your home - that you think might be a little bit too advanced for you, it is always to better to err on the side of caution and call in the professionals.
