    6. A bottle of drywall repair putty with a quick-use applicator for easily filling holes in drywall, plaster, wood, and any other cracks you very much want to forget about.

    7. A wood polish and conditioner made with beeswax so you can revive wooden furniture in your house and give it that brand-spanking-new sheen.

    8. A wallpaper smoothing tool kit if you're really feeling a patterned accent wall will revive your room rather than a new coat of paint.

    9. Or a bottle of wallpaper stripping spray to help remove heinous, outdated wallpaper before you have time to question your *previous* choices.

    10. A pack of peel-and-stick backsplash panels in a subway tile pattern so on-point, no one will think it took next-to-no time to install.

    11. An electronic stud sensor with a deep scan-mode for detecting studs through up to two layers of drywall and pinpointing stud centers with incredible accuracy so your heavy wall hanging won't budge.

    12. A waterproof outdoor outlet timer so you can have a perfectly timed light show in your front or backyard and really dazzle the neighbors. Or, you can use it to turn other devices — like your pool pump of garden fountain — on and off.

    13. A laser leveler with one 360-degree horizontal beam and one 140-degree vertical beam to make sure literally every item on your gallery wall is hung at the perfect angle.

    14. A gallon of wallpaper adhesive that'll cover 280 square feet of empty wall space that you're *finally* ready to do something with.

    15. A 12-outlet power strip with surge protection to keep all your new gadgets running, especially if you went in with the upgrades in your entertainment room.

    16. A Gorilla patch-and-seal spray to keep water, air, and moisture out of just about anything you might come across during your DIY-ing. The spray is also temperature- and UV-resistant, so you don't have to worry about doing another fix a few months down the line.

    17. A can of front door and shutter paint that'll dry in under one hour and change the entire look of your house without you having to spend a fortune on a remodel.

    18. A pack of nine removable Command hooks because you already know you're going to want to redo your room again in a year, and putting new holes in the wall isn't the most practical idea.

    19. A can of Krylon spray paint and primer to spruce up any bit of furniture or statement piece in your home made from wood, metal, wicker, plastic, glass, or ceramics. If you're not looking to overhaul everything you own, a quick coat of spray paint could refresh some of your favorite decor.

    20. And a nine-pack of Scotch blue tape, because as simple as it may seem, that little blue line will be the only thing keeping you from turning your walls into a Jackson Pollock painting.
