DIY Projects Made Easy! How to make bookshelf with DIY PETE. This is a collaboration with DIY PETE and Paul Churchill from the Recovery Elevator Podcast. DIY projects are a great hobby for anyone. Paul reached out to let us know about the benefits of DIY projects for people struggling with alcoholism. Projects keep your mind on other things, are challenging, and they relieve stress.
