The dangers of watching design TV

Karla Hollencamp of Cox News Service writes about the dangers of watching design TV. They make it look easy on the "make-over TV prgrams, so before you begin a project ask your self some questions:

Do I have the time?
Any serious remodeling project takes more than a couple of weekends.
Do I have the tools?

Do I have the talent?
Carpentry, electrical work and plumbing require special skills. Interior design isn’t just picking a paint colour. Custom upholstery doesn’t just happen. These professions are a combination of knowledge and experience.
Do I have the treasury?

Hollencamp writes
Your mistakes will not only cost you time, they will cost you money. If you are trying to save money, this is frustrating.
