DIY Home Projects - Done In a Day

You can give everyday items an amazing modern makeover from your local crafts store.  You don't need a big budget to do it in either.  And you can create a beautiful space with secondhand finds.  Instead of going out and buying all new things you can find budget and environmentally friendly decorating items with just a little bit of searching.  Craigslist is a great find for good finds that can make a room. 

One example are saving money on curtains where you can reduce bulk and cut purchased panels in half and hem the raw edges and hang as four seperate panels.  Another great idea and the newest trend I've seen is to make a skirt underneath an unsightly sink base by stitching a skirt from a stain-resistant fabric to hide it.  There are so many ideas that you can do at home and save a ton of money...more ideas to come for DIY home projects.
