Judging from the wealth of TV programs dedicated to room redos, Americans are mad for home makeovers. The idea of a home makeover is seductive, but not everyone has scads of cash to spend revamping a room. With 200 full-color photos and 50 color illustrations, Budget Makeovers reveals how do-it-yourselfers can attain a professional polish at an affordable price. The book features 12 real-life makeovers, showing how to transform boring or outdated rooms - be they kitchens, baths, family rooms, dining rooms, living rooms, or bedrooms - into fresh, beautiful, and livable spaces. Each room featured includes color before and after photographs (200 in all), a description of how the room was updated, a list of what the owners loved and hated about the space, the tab on how much was spent, and a breakdown of how long each phase of the makeover took. How-to projects specific to each room, valuable trade secrets, decorating shortcuts, full color illustrations, and design ideas are included with each redesign.
This comprehensive collection offers a wealth of fast, fun home decorating ideas that can be accomplished in two days or less on a budget. With step-by-step instructions and 250 photos and illustrations, the book guides readers through projects that can increase the convenience, beauty, and value of a home. Both seasoned remodelers and inspired novices learn how to revamp a wall or find a new solution for a simple window treatment, how to decorate a lamp or skirt an ottoman, or even double storage space with clever wall-mounted racks. Here are clear, concise plans for everything from bordered draperies and piped Roman shades to stenciled floor cloths and glazed walls to refurbished bar stools and crackle-finished sideboards. With both substantial projects like slipcovered headboards, and super-easy accents such as ribbon-trimmed lampshades, "52 Weekend Decorating Projects" shows readers how to transform every room in the home without a decorator and on a budget.
We all want beautiful homes that reflect our personal style. But
the happiest homes don't just look good-they also feel good.
Ideally, they support the way we live, keep us healthy and safe and
enrich our net worth, too.
Amid a mood of collective belt-tightening, instead of moving out or
moving up, Americans today are staying home and staying put. But
just because they're keeping the homes they have, doesn't mean they
have to compromise the way they live. In fact, now that new home
construction is down, suppliers, contractors and craftspeople are
more available and more amenable to negotiating their rates-even
for small projects-than ever before. So, if you want to upgrade
your home and improve its value without spending a lot, now is the
perfect time to do so.
