Think you need big bucks to make some truly amazing changes to your home? Think again! Check out two remodels that our viewers did for $100 each.

BATHROOM OVERHAUL
Melissa from Wilmington, Delaware repurposed a lot of items she already had lying around to make her bathroom look amazing. “I shop my house first,” she said.

Mason Jar Sconce

We’ve seen mason jars used in many different ways, but never like this! Learn how to turn those mason jars you have lying around into a beautiful bathroom light fixture.

Beadboard Wallpaper + Molding
Want the look of beadboard without the expense and with less effort? Try beadboard wallpaper! Just stick on, then paint the color of your choice over it.


KITCHEN MAKEOVER

Viewer Eliza from Chicago gave her kitchen a shockingly different (and awesome) new look with just paint and vinyl plank flooring.

Painting Your Cabinets
“The best way to save money on painting is to stalk the “oops” section at your paint store,” Eliza says. “You can find great paint, usually close to the color you want if you wait awhile, for super cheap.”

Eliza just painted her walls and her cabinets, but notes that you should be sure to clean those cabinets very well with degreaser before you paint.

Installing Vinyl Flooring
This really couldn’t be simpler. Just unpeel the backing from the plank, and stick down! For extra interest, Eliza arranged her tiles in a chevron pattern.
