Inexpensive and easy way to make DIY outdoor lighting by re-purposing a tuna can. A dowel, paint or old broom stick, wood screw, copper fitting, and a thrift store glass hurricane is all that is needed. Simply drill a hole in the can and dowel to attach the dowel/paintstick and spray paint it. Once the paint is dry add the glass hurricane. Cost- $5.00
Here is a bedroom I remodeled after my son moved out- changed into a guest room. We had to redo the drywall, tear up the carpet and replace part of the floor (window was left cracked and
rain came in). I have another view I will ... » post of the other side of the room- replaced the closet door too. My budget was $300...I came in well under that. The Parquet flooring is actually stick down tile from Big Lots- that was my biggest cost at $60. The bed was from my oldest son- bed frame $20 at Salvation army, headboard $5 at yard sale, down comforter $20 with discounts, the curtain (shower curtain which I used seam tape to make a rod pocket), table cloth, dust ruffle and pillow shams- Bag sale $5. Lamp $8 at yard sale and picked shade out of someone's trash! Rug was $15 at yard sale. Chair $25 on local list. Computer desk was $30 at yard sale. Various decorations were $1-$3 each at yard sales. Door was $25 at a home depot going out of business sale. Armoire is not in the photo, but I picked that up for free. Oh and the wall paper- box of it for $5 (which was my inspiration for this room) ...but had to buy one more roll online for $40! Only things I reused in the room was an antique chair and the table.
