23. Give Your Fireplace A Facelift
Although rarely used (mine anyway!), fireplaces tend to be the focus of attention in most living spaces. It’s where you hang your TV or decorate with family photos. With it being at the heart of the home, a fireplace makeover can make an enormous difference in the feel and interior design of your home. Check out this fireplace makeover that was done for under $200 (assuming you have most of the tools). It’s a far cry from where it started! The transformation is incredible.
24. Paint Your Floors
Yes, you can do that! Two words comes to mind when I think of linoleum– ugly and outdated. Unfortunately, floors can be very expensive to replace, but what if you could just slap a few coats of paint on there?! Ok, maybe not that easy. There is the preparation, the wait time, and a good sealant involved, but it sure beats spending your savings to update your floors. Check out this tutorial!
This painting technique also works on tile floors and kitchen backsplashes, and I absolutely love the idea of using a tile stencil. I think this was very tastefully done! You can see more pictures, step-by-step instructions and find out where to buy the stencils for this project over at Hometalk.
25. Add Glass Shelves
This has never really occurred to me, but glass shelves add extra storage space while still keeping a space feeling open and airy. I love this idea for the kitchen so that your herbs can grow big and healthy. This tutorial shows you how to easily do this with quarter round! The hardest part is all of the measuring, but a glass manufacturer can do all of the cutting for you.
