20. Give Your Air Grille A Makeover
Unfortunately, the return air grille is a necessity (dang, that ugly thing!), but check out this makeover that makes it a little more pleasing to the eye! It was done with a fancy sheet metal you can buy from your local hardware store, painted to match the trim, and then framed with pine.
21. Add Wood Accents
Dress up your builder grade cabinetry with wood accents you can find at your local hardware store! This gives them a more custom look for just a few bucks. Go get the instructions for this cabinetry revamp over at The Idea Room.
22. Chalkboard Paint Makeover
Chalkboard paint is my new best friend! It’s functional, charming, and really easy to add to any room of the house. I have a chalkboard wall in my kitchen that is the focal point of the house, and a lot of fun for the entire family. I really like the idea of using it on a single cabinet door for notes, quotes or grocery lists. All it takes is a little creativity, a paint brush, and the paint, of course. 🙂
