Fashionistas take a stand. Do you love to wear Chanel and wield a chainsaw? Do you shop Home Depot and Hugo Boss with equal enthusiasm? Fashion and home maintenance don't have to be mutually exclusive!

In honor of New York City Fashion Week, we’re melding your two favorite pastimes so your hammer skills can come in handy in your home and help your closet. Instead of splurging on trendy but expensive items like sun-faded jeans or paint-splotched shirts, make them instead! By doing everyday maintenance tasks like weeding the garden or painting over peeled walls, you’ll achieve runway-worthy looks. For more step-by-step guides and customized to-dos, visit BrightNest.
