Let us be honest with you—there are some electrical projects out there that you absolutely need to call in a residential electrician for, but others are simple if you’re the type of person who enjoys DIYing projects around your house.

First of all, keep in mind that although the video you just found on the internet might make it look easy, if you don’t really know what you’re doing, it’s best to leave it to a pro. Secondly, be sure that the power is off. Be sure to unplug whatever you’re working on and turn off the breaker.

Once those things are done, here’s a list of the things you may be able to do by yourself.
