Social Media: Using Video

In the upcoming weeks I am going to have a bit of spare time, and I am planning on doing some “renovations” within my home. Usually I tend to take the IKEA route, and I am probably guilty of electing IKEA as my go to option for furniture improvements due to the whole “IKEA EXPERIENCE”, I simply have had enough with the frustration of navigating through their instruction manuals, feeling my head about to explode as I attempt multiple times to put together one of their products. Therefore I have chosen to dabble into a new strategy. DIY (Do It Yourself)
