Home Remodeling and Decorating Show: Eco Friendly

HGTV’s Summer Baltzer shares great ideas to “design on a dime”.


This year it’s easy being “green” at the show when you check out all the latest environmentally friend home products. And along with the hundreds of exhibits and services, one of the featured guests will be HGTV’s own Summer Baltzer. On today’s Studio 5 show, Summer demonstrates great mini-demo ideas on how to created “on the cheap”.

It may be a little like Scarlet O’Hara’s dress made from curtains or Julie Andrews’ play clothes from the “Sound of Music” but whatever you choose, Summer shows you how to make a duvet from ordinary table top curtains.

Or i picture frames are a challenge for you, Summer puts together a picture frame accessory using only a few scrapbooking materials.

A candle accessory using coffee beans, makes a great decoration but will great smell, too.

And an ordinary bedside lamp turns into a thing of beauty with just a simple thrift store vase.

Don’t miss the exciting “Eco Expo”, too with great ideas for the environmentally-astute.
