It’s a great and chic way to recycle those bottles and add some style to your patio.
2. Home Depot - Who better to get home improvement tips from then a home improvement company. Home Depot as some great “how-to” videos.

3. Debbie Travis – perhaps one of the best flea market, quick fix people out there (in our humble opinion) Debbie’s site has some great tips on fixing and beautifying those trouble items in your home. From foiling, glazing wood cabinets and creating faux finishes.
4. Georgia Interior Design – Great place to find out what’s new and hot for the home. Not only are there great tips for decorating, but the site carries some useful tips for purchasing the right furniture. Our favorite category is “tricks of the trade” where they share some great tips you can take home to your design creations.
