$143 — Flooring
The old carpet is replaced with a black tile border and a rug made out of a piece of carpet. The carpet edges are bound with carpet tape for a finished look.
$95 — Walls
The knotty pine paneling is hidden behind wallboard that's secured with roofing nails for a contemporary look. The louvered doors are disguised with more wallboard. Silver paint adds interest to the edges.

Brown and gray fabric is stitched together for striped window treatments.
$61 — Sofa
A dated sofa is given a new look with fabric and cushions.
