Build a toolbox by purchasing the best tools you can afford. They don't have to be expensive, just make sure that they are quality and are backed with a guarantee.

You can do this. It's not magic. There is lots of information on the internet and there are many books about the basics of using tools and home improvement. Tackle something simple (painting might be good). Get a friend to give you encouragement and to help you solve problems.
