Decorating On A Dime Part 1

Decorating On A Dime Part 1

In today's economy you may think you cannot afford that decorating project or be able to  remodel a room in your home, but I'm here to tell you, YES YOU CAN! We just rebuilt our kitchen on a dime. Living on a fixed income meant we had to be careful with our already strained budget.

We started by comparing our options. For the walls,floors and the ceiling we went with OSB instead of drywall or paneling. This saved us hundreds of dollars. To prepare the osb we primed it first with Kiltz ( the cheapest at Wal-Mart, any primer will do.) Then chose Color Place (Lemonade slush at Wal-Mart) for the walls, to lighten up our dark small kitchen.
