The Boston Globe just published an article with 45 diy home improvement ideas for under $45. So just when you thought a home makeover was out of budget, here are some ideas for simple ideas that can have big impact.

And I’d like to add mine own idea to the list. I purchases a funky old metal lamp at a thrift store for $5, and fancy spray paint at an art store for $8 to create a one of a kind lamp to match my decor. The most expensive part will be the lampshade, $26 online for a custom made lampshade. Still not bad for $39.
