Paint Your Dull Linoleum
You'll be surprised how a little bit of paint, polyurethane floor finisher, and painter's tape can do to your linoleum, especially your dull linoleum. All you have got to spend is $40-50 and it takes just one day to bring about a change. Well, many think they have to pay a lot to revamp their dull linoleum to a spanking new one. But all you have to really do is, just opt for an interesting pattern. When you are settled on it, mock it up with painter's tape and paint it with the colors of your choice. To ensure your pretty printed paint goes the extra mile top it off with polyurethane. It will not keep the surface protected but you will be able to clean it easily too.

Brighten up Your Kitchen With Decals
All you need to do is spend $15 per 20-pack and self-adhesive mirror tiles and a little time in your hand to create a little bit of illusion of space in your kitchen. You can just line up the insides of the walls of your cabinet with mirror tiles and get stick-on mirrored tile sheets which is a sure-shot way of cutting down the cost and the mess you make with this DIY hack.
Dress Up Your Rug
It takes just $50 to spice up your old plain rug. Of course, you do need a few things such as the paint, painter's tape, and fabric medium. The time you need to fix it is just 1-3 hours. While you may be tempted to buy a rug that looks pretty but it costs a lot, much like the CB2 area rug. You can instead buy a blank one, get a cool design and add paint to it like a pro. Let it all dry and design dry, remove the tape, let it dry for the night and let it all dry for the night.
A Pass-through Leading From The kitchen to the Dining Area
Get a compound Lumber (2" x 4"s), drywall something which also has beaded paneling and can set you back by $50. If you are crunched for time it will take you just half a day to fix it. Ensure the wall you are opening isn't burdened by the load otherwise it may cave in. Then sledgehammer your way through the opening you choose to measure, just ensure the edges are cleanly cut. Frame the opening to the size of 2" x 4"s and cover them with drywall. Ass a more refined look with the help of beaded paneling or a stone shelf. (faux)
Get a Panelled Wooden Door
Just a piece of plywood (.25-inch) wood stain or paint can reform your wood. All you need to spend is $20 on the door. All it would take is 2-3 hours of your precious time. Also, why would you want your door to look ultra-thin and cheap when you can upgrade it and give it a rich feel? Just add 1' x 3' planks right around the edge and along the middle section and your door will never look the same again.
