Barely Recognizable Remodel
The $12 Makeover
But what an amazing difference a coat of paint can make! And it required nothing more than what was already on hand at the house. A $12 hinge and handle kit finishes off the doors. That may be the best return on investment anyone’s ever made!
Adding Function (and beauty)
Fantastic Painted Accents and Awning
It's unbelievable how $40 worth of paint, trim, and decorative accents could transform this space. The awning adds a a finishing touch at no cost—it's simply a repurposed yard tarp, attached to a wooden frame. Flanked by some fresh plantings, this brilliant makeover gets 5 stars.
Gutted and Repurpose
That’s exactly what happened to the inside of this shed, now a bona fide art studio. After adding a window, running some electric, and insulating it, the owners finished it off with drywall and trim. Paint and shelving were the final touches that made this the perfect work retreat for a full-time artist.
