"I made an ugly garage look like a country cottage."

Who: Rose Byrne
Where: Hyattsville, Md.

"I wanted to create an interesting focal point on the side of my plain white garage. So I hung an old six-pane window a friend gave me right on the cinder block and framed it with two wood shutters from a local salvage shop. After attaching a window box and white picket fencing that runs the entire length of the garage, it now looks more like a country cottage than an ugly old garage."

What Rose Saved: About $1,840
