Are you wanting to do some home improvement projects around the house but you are a little short on cash? You can still get something done without spending too much. Here are some ideas:
Replace a broken fence post by purchasing a pressure treated post or buy some cedar fence boards to replace ones that are missing or damaged.
Watch for sales on bark mulch to spruce up flowerbeds. I often see them on sale 3 bags for $10.
Add a blind or replace a worn one in smaller windows. Measure across from inside to inside of window frame to determine the appropriate size. If you've never installed one before watch videos on YouTube.
If you can sew consider purchasing fabric or bed sheets to make curtains or a valance. Curtain panels can also be purchase on sale. Check for clearance priced items too.
Replace missing, damaged or outdated glass light fixture shades. Use spray paint to update the fixture itself. Check out thrift stores, Habitat or rehabilitation stores and Craigslist for fixtures as well. Many people with replace a perfectly good fixture and sell or donate them.
Replace worn, damaged or missing weather stripping on your exterior doors. Keeping doors properly insulated along their edges keeps weather and moisture out and saves on heating and cooling expenses as well.
I'll come up with some more to share. After all, as a homeowner, there is always something that needs to be done around my house.
