When the days are shorter and the lack of daylight paired with colder temps force us to spend more time inside, why not put your indoor time to good use with a few simple home projects?
Deck the halls. This time of year, hanging wreaths on windows, embellishing a sparkling tree and decorating a mantle go a long way in transforming a house into a cozy winter wonderland. Itâ€™s also a fantastic opportunity to cover up the eyesores lurking around your house with holiday prettiesâ€”think carpet stains and scratched walls.
Grab a paintbrush. Iâ€™ve said it once and Iâ€™ll say it againâ€”Alright, fine. Iâ€™ve said it a thousand times but it still holds true: When it comes to easy do-it-yourself projects, a little paint goes a long way. Whether you are thinking about giving your living room a fresh coat or painting a dated brick fireplace, the minimal cost and big result make this project a no-brainer.
Accessorize your bathroom. A new shower curtain, fluffy new towels and a few bath accessories and your bathroom will feel like new in no time. With so many fun accessory options, why not give your bathroom the boost it deserves?
Backsplash it up. While a kitchen remodel is out of the question when it comes to quick and easy weekend updates, adding a tile backsplash is high on the you-can-do-it list and also a great starter project for wannabe tile gurus. With so many how-to videos on the internet that show just how simple a backsplash can be to installâ€”like the one below from DIY Networkâ€”why not put a little lipstick on your kitchen before holiday guests arrive?
