Toilet with basket of toilet paper on the tank
Painting bathroom walls is easy — but getting behind the toilet requires some planning.

Have you ever written down a list of home improvement projects you want to tackle, prioritized them and then realized, when push comes to shove, you’re not sure how to move forward with some of those projects?

Of course you have — we all have at one point!

Maybe you want to replace your basement floors, but you’re not sure whether your top choice is the best for that space. Or you want to paint the bathroom walls but you’re not sure how to get behind the toilet. Or you have some old hardwood floors and could sand and refinish them, or just replace them with luxury vinyl planks.

We’ll remove the mystery for some of these projects — and many more — on this week’s Today’s Homeowner Radio Show.
