New DIY Column

  • Hello to all my Frugal Friends!


    You may have noticed that recently we've had Artie Wallace contribute a regular column on frugal DIY projects. Let me introduce him to you. Artie has a successful handyman service in Rockaway Park, NY. You'll find his website here. I'm always impressed when someone can present many positive testimonials!


    As someone who's done many DIY projects (including a bedroom/bathroom addition), we were happy to add his column. I appreciate his ideas and think that they can help you to live better for less. Here are a couple of recent projects that you might want to do.


    If you're looking for a way to make a decorating statement without spending a fortune, consider Adding an Accent Wall From Reclaimed Wood. Artie gives you step-by-step instructions. The picture shows how dramatic a difference it makes.


    Or if your bathroom is dated and could use a makeover check out Give Your Bathroom a New Look. Once again Artie lays out 7 ideas that can make your project affordable and doable for the average homeowner.


    And a word of encouragement for those of you who don't feel so handy. You'd be surprised what you can accomplish if you have step-by-step instructions. Especially if you know in advance how difficult the project could be (which Artie shares).


    Keep on Stretching those DIY Dollars!
