18. Update Your Countertops
I’ll bet you never thought you could transform an ugly laminate countertop for less than $10 with spray paint! And, the Bright Green Door will give you all of the details and instructions for this money-saving project. You won’t believe the before and after pics! I just love remodeling projects that cost next to nothing.
19. Overhaul An Old Rug
Spray painting a rug may sound kind of scary, but there is a paint that is made just for this! Apparently it dries soft (that’s pretty important for a rug), but keep in mind that you will need several coats depending on what you are painting. Check out the instructions and tips for this project over at The Good, The Bad & The Truth!
20. Update Your Vent Covers
If you have vent covers that look battered and dingy, don’t even think about replacing them when you can spray paint them for about ten bucks! This also works really well for outdated light fixtures. Just visit The Frugal Homemaker to see how it’s done!
