All DIY is just about covering up stuff - BritishDadStuff



You know that you are a Great British Dad...
...when you realise that all building work is just about covering stuff up.


Why can't you get funky coloured grilles?

Those vents at the bottom of walls...
...they only come in 3 colours - old couple brass, rental tenant silver and 1960's white.

They're in every room, so why sort of hide them?

I want to turn them into a feature.

A clear one... lit by LEDs... With your house wi-fi password on them...
Or even better - get your house wi-fi pumping out on them.

If you're good at DIY, it means you are good at covering stuff up.

All building work is, is hiding what's there until you stop.

You've got a trench?
Cover it in breeze blocks.

You've got some breeze blocks for the wall?
Cover them in bricks.

You've got some bricks?
Cover them in plaster.

You've got some plaster?
Cover it in lining paper.

You've got some lining paper?
Cover it in paint.

It doesn't stop.

Now I want to cover it with a picture.

Or a bed.

I forgot the grille.

I'll paint it weirdo purple.
