With the final bank holiday of the summer fast approaching (29th – 31st August), we’re turning our minds to quick and easy home updates that can be squeezed into a long weekend. Summer is the perfect opportunity to give your home a little TLC and the long, light evenings mean that there’s still time for a cold beer and a BBQ afterwards.

Throughout August we’ll be providing you with a wealth of update ideas, handy hints, tips and online tutorials to kick-start your inner DIY god or goddess. What’s more, we’ve also got a £100 voucher up for grabs for the best one.

All you need to do is to tweet us a ‘before and after’ picture of your project to @FishpoolsUK. The competition will close straight after the August Bank Holiday weekend and we’ll announce the winner soon after this. Please do read through our T&Cs, which can be found here.

For some instant inspiration, why not check out our pin boards over on Pinterest? Packed with the latest trends, room ideas and ingenious life hacks, there’s something for everyone!
