Here are two great links for how-to information on simple home improvements: hanging a ceiling medallion and patching drywall. The ceiling medallion link was pointed out on design*sponge and is posted on Domino magazine's site. The drywal post was mentioned today on Apartment Therapy and is posted at Charles and Hudson. Both of these may come in handy as I move forward with the home renovations. In particular, I love the idea of a ceiling medalion — it's those kinds of tiny details that really pull a room together.
