"I made a backsplash out of trailer skirting."

Who: Patty Studdard
Where: Cookeville, Tenn.

"I used tin skirting—usually sold for mobile homes—to make a kitchen backsplash for my son's house. It comes in 5-by-8-foot sheets and is easy to cut to size and glue in place. Best of all, I paid only $30, compared with tin tiles, which can cost up to $20 each."

What Patty Saved: About $170
