Meet Ronda Batchelor, the local DIY expert and home blogger taking over our Re-Design on a Dime feature. See the before and after of the dining area that Ronda created on just a $500 budget. With DIY, organization and interior design as her passions, Ronda is always working on another project. She uses a lot of second-hand materials to make her masterpieces come to life. Her projects have been featured in magazines including Better Homes and Gardens, This Old House Magazine, and Cottages and Bungalows.

Glam Your Fan

1. Spray paint all the blades Krylon Classic Gray in gloss.
