9. Some people just don’t like empty space above their cabinets.

This may not be a $30 fix, but it’s still worth mentioning. Instead of cluttering them up with stuff you should probably be throwing away, you can do what Remodelando la Casa did and make that spacing look like something fabulous.

10. You can frame that “builders” mirror without having to remove it from the wall. Let John and Sherry show you how, here.
