Believe it or not, it’s pretty easy to increase the value of your home with only a few DIY projects.

Most of them are easy enough for beginners, too!
Brand-new light fixtures

Hide unsightly chords
Hide your television wires by running them through a shower curtain rod that matches the color of your walls. Install the rod behind your television and it will keep things nice and organized.
