I'm a firm believer in DIY, and when your pocketbook is empty, I say do it yourself. The Home Depot offers weekly workshops, Do-It-Herself workshops for women, and even has workshops for kids.
A few simple upgrades to your space that can be learned quickly? Painting, re-tiling floors, and upgrading bathroom hardware. The Home Depot is offering workshops in all of the above. Or should I say below?
One-hour Interior Painting workshops take place every Saturday from January 16 through 30, from 10 to 11am. Learn how to prep, repair, primer, and paint walls while under a tight budget, in just 60 minutes. Stay a little longer and learn to tile while you're there (see below).

To help with the cost of paint, get a mail-in rebate for $5 off one gallon or $20 off five gallon pails of Behr, Glidden, Ralph Lauren, and Freshair Choice paints, purchased January 14–18. For the rebate form, click HERE >>
Tiling Floors and Walls
Learn how to not only choose, but layout tile precisely on floors and walls. You'll even have the opportunity to use a tile cutter! (That's worth the hour workshop alone.)

The Home Depot's latest Do-It-Herself series presents Bathroom Updates, a workshop teaching women to replace faucets, shower heads, toilets and other accessories. The emphasis is on saving money by installing water-saving hardware. The workshop takes place on Thursday, January 14, from 7 to 8:30pm.
