Renovating can seem like something that's intimidating, but with a bit of know-how and a plan, it can be the difference between a builder-grade house and a dream home. At least, it has been for us!

The following projects and tutorials have saved us a lot of money and helped us to give our builder-grade colonial a ton of character. If you aren't sure where to start, never underestimate the power of paint! There are plenty of painting ideas and projects to inspire and teach you.
