1- Painted Bathroom Tile

No time or money for a costly bathroom remodel? Try painting the tile.  It isn't difficult, and I knocked the walls out in one weekend.  Check out my Instagram story highlight on how I did it step by step.

2- consider the closet

If you have a large bank of closets in a room, you can make a big impact by changing the doors.  Sometimes all you need is a little bit of paint and some new hardware to completely transform the look and feel of a room.  See what I did to these closet doors here.

3- Board and Batten

Putting trim on a wall is my new obsession.  It is etremely easy, even on plaster and oh, the instant gratification! It completely transforms the look and feel of a room.  Check out my basement craftroom feature wall and how I did it from start to finish.

Do not underestimate the transformative power of good, dramatic lighting.  This room was huge and looked stark and unfinished.  Inspired by a post on Pinterest, with a little help from my friend, I had these cut to fit the high ceilings in this room.  Follow my step-by-step DIY on how we made these wood light pillars for less than $200.

5- wall decals

Decals should be used sparingly, but in the right hinads they can be magic.  I wanted this laundry room to be a little more fun, so I added these cute decals.  It took me a weekend and a year later I'm still in love with the results.
