Want to spruce up your digs but don’t have a lot of extra time on your hands? We’ve got five projects you can complete over the weekend.
Fire it up – While it may not seem like it now, cooler weather will be here soon. And when it does, you’ll be the envy of all the neighbors when you’re warming up beside your very own fire pit. Just be sure to check your local laws regarding open burning before you start cooking up those tasty s’mores.
Curb appeal – Nothing says “welcome” like a spruced-up front yard and entryway. Easy upgrades include adding walkway lighting, painting your front door, installing a porch swing and planting acontainer garden.
Do-it-yourself storage – If you spend a lot of time in the yard, you know how many tools you need to keep it looking tidy. But where to keep all those rakes, shovels, boots and gloves? How about in your very own garden shed? And it only (supposedly) takes eight hours to build!
Add a little artistic flair – Tired of staring at that blank wall? This weekend, gather up all of your favorite photos and art that have been hiding in the closet and create the perfect gallery wall in your living room, bedroom or hallway.
Budget makeover – Want a new kitchen but money is tight? Paint the cabinets. If you do all the prep work correctly, it shouldn’t take more than a weekend, and when you’re done—voila! A “new” kitchen!
