Hosts of the nationally syndicated Today’s Homeowner TV show – Danny Lipford and his daughter – Chelsea Lipford Wolf, got an early start today, connecting with 22 journalists throughout the morning to deliver fall fix-up advice to homeowners across the U.S. Broadcasting live via satellite from a residence in Mobile, AL, the pair delivered top strategies to improve energy efficiency, weatherization tips to prepare for cool weather and some simple ideas to spruce up interiors for the holidays.

Replacing cabinetry is an expensive project, so Lipford and Wolf decided to take a more budget-friendly approach and show viewers how to upcycle original builder-grade cabinets.

In addition, it’s a water-based glue, which makes for easy cleanup as needed.
Lipford and Wolf suggested a few other simple projects and upgrades homeowners can tackle to spruce up their homes in preparation for the holidays. Their top picks include:
- Adding a fresh coat of paint to any room, or using paint to create an accent wall.
- Scenting the home using Lipford’s hack – adding a few drops of a favorite essential oil to the furnace filter for a great-smelling house in no time.
- Adding a backsplash or new hardware in the kitchen.
Next, Lipford introduced viewers to his popular “4 Seasons of Home Ownership” checklist for fall, detailing must-do, could-do, and should-do tasks that homeowners need to tackle this time of year to keep their homes efficient and running smoothly. Saving energy is always at the top of list, so…
