DIY Home Improvement Projects Under $50

Modernize Your Outdoor House Numbers
"In just minutes (and using tools you likely have on hand), you can refresh your home's curb appeal with a new set of house numbers. Go for a style or color that picks up on a detail on your home's exterior, and place them in an easy-to-see spot. For even more punch, consider placing an accent uplight or downlight that draws attention to the numbers during nighttime hours."


Swap Out a Doorknob
"Tired finishes or worn-out hardware can make doors unappealing elements in the overall look of a room. A fresh doorknob can give new life to a door, and it's an easy project. Simply remove the old plate and hardware and install the new, following the manufacturer's directions. Or you can paint the old hardware using a metal-appropriate spray paint. Tip: You may need to touch up paint or stain on the door around the new plate if the old hardware is a different size."


Organize Your Drawers
"Drawers that hold a jumble of items -- miscellaneous crafts and school supplies in the kitchen, socks and underwear in the bedroom -- can easily be tamed, sometimes with DIY items you already have on hand. Go for clear containers to group like items or dividers (you can find inexpensive ones at hardware or big-box home improvement stores) made from wire or plastic. Then designate space for everything -- socks in the middle, for example, or paint in a single container."


Improve Lighting
"Light is often an afterthought, but a new light fixture is a simple DIY project that fast-forwards the decor of a space into fresh, fabulous territory. Swap out a lamp in an entry, for example, or replace a too-small fixture in the kitchen with a series of smaller pendants over a work space."
