I’m thrilled to be teaming with The Home Depot for the Do-It-Herself workshops. We’re going to help women gain the skills and confidence to make basic repairs and easy home improvements with FREE monthly workshops – giving step-by-step instructions, home makeover advice and hands-on experience.
One of my biggest Do-It-Herself makeovers to date (and also the least expensive) was a mini-kitchen makeover that simply involved painting my kitchen cabinets. The bland builder-grade oak cabinets were given a fresh start in bright white. Just a couple coats of primer and paint completely transformed my space for less than $100.
And when I needed a new space to work double duty for my computers and crafting, I built a 10-foot-long desk in our spare bedroom made out of stock kitchen cabinets from The Home Depot. I just topped the cabinets with plywood and covered them in laminate flooring for a great faux wood finish.
For my Master Bedroom makeover I added whitewashed faux wood paneling as an accent wall behind the bed. This really softened up the room and gave a great focal point against the black furniture.
Another easy Do-It-Herself project that I completed on a budget this past year was our Laundry Room makeover. I simply added a bead board wall with hooks for hanging book bags and coats, stenciled our old washer and dryer, added two rows of wire shelving for storage and organization, plus gave the room a fresh coat of paint. Quite the transformation!
So what’s next on my list? I’ve been spying a couple projects on Pinterest including installing dentil moulding in our Dining Room and painting our bathroom cabinets.
But first I’ll be framing a mirror with tile at the Do-It-Herself Workshop at my local Home Depot. This same Do-It-Herself workshop will be held at all Home Depot stores. Check your local Home Depot store for complete details.
