Colorado Springs, Colorado (NAPSI) - If you’re like most people, you’ve probably spent time wandering the aisles of home improvement stores pining over pending projects and then, feeling overwhelmed, left empty-handed.

Luckily, there are many value-boosting projects that can be completed with little home improvement knowledge. With a small budget of no more than $100 and a little sweat equity, these DIY projects can spruce up your home and make it a cozier place to live.
