All those who used to say “I’ll do that when I get time” have been called into action by the government’s strict measures – and as this gallery shows, they’ve gone DIY mad.
We asked our readers to show us some of the DIY projects they’ve been working on during lockdown.
Feast your eyes on their creations here – and please feel free to send us yours on Facebook or email them to [email protected]
1. Brian's brilliant beach hut
With lockdown clamping down on trips to the seaside, Brian Gilkes-Strong has built this brilliant garden beach hut for his wife, Lisa, to enjoy while she's at home.

2. Who ya gonna call? Ian Logan!
Ian Logan's son, Bret, was understandably delighted when the wall of his new Drayton bedroom was emblazoned with pictures of the Ghostbusters - his favourite characters. Bret and his sister, Bonnie, even have the costumes to match!

3. This is what a good neighbour looks like
For years the communal garden of Kevin from Southsea's block of flats was left in disrepair. That was until he and his girlfriend stepped up to give it new life during lockdown.
4. Working from home has never looked better!
Sophie White from Stubbington, sent in these pictures of her DIY lockdown project. She has turned her garage into a beauty treatment room. Wow!
