Improve Your Home: 10 Weekend Projects

Improve Your Home: 10 Weekend Projects

Start these 10 weekends projects to improve your home.

1. Install beaded boards

Beaded boards add a traditional touch to kitchens and bathrooms. Cut holes in the boards or sheets for outlets, phone jacks, and other wall necessities.

2. Add storage to your entry

Refashioned furniture can achieve a look that’s stylish and storage-savvy. A small-scale table is a perfect size to place beside the front door to use the drawers and shelf for busy drop-zone items.

3. Make your entrance inviting

Dress the door with new hardware and add a welcome mat with potted plants nearby. Also, consider installing outdoor lighting to enhance your home’s architecture and illuminate the walkway.

4. Recharge and reorder

Get creative with drawer space. Use drawers outfitted with dividers as an area to place your charging docks and daily organizers for cell phones, music players, and other electronics. Drill a hole in the back of the drawer to accommodate electrical cords.

5. Light up the kitchen

Dress up your eating area with a fresh light fixture. 

6. Install a new faucet

Inject elegance with a faucet that ups the ante in looks and quality. Ensure your configuration matches your existing sink.

7. Give your yard a boost

Add potted plants and outdoor seating, such as a bistro set or an eclectic mix of colorful chairs.

8. Add molding

Add a defining touch of crown molding to your living room or dining room.

9. Paint or paper a wall

Self-adhesive and repositionable wallpaper creates a romantic accent that’s easy to apply, remove, and reuse; like a giant sticker.

10. Update your hardware

Replace factory-issue handles and pulls with designs reflecting your personal taste.
