DIY home improvement projects are a great way to save money and put your creative skills to work. Fortunately, several projects will give your home a beautiful refresh and can be tackled in just one weekend. Read on to find out:
Add Curb Appeal
Painting your front door a vibrant colour is a simple project that can be done in two ways. You can remove the door before painting it or paint your door in place. Decide what works best for you and go for it! We love eye-catching colours like teal, yellow, and red to really make it pop. Once you’re done, you can always order a new bench and some throw pillows to complete the look. Voila! An outdoor transformation that doesn’t take long.
Give Your Kitchen a Facelift
Kitchen upgrades are some of the best ways to add value to your home. There’s no need to do an expensive kitchen reno to make it feel like new. You can do several small DIY projects like updating cabinet and drawer handles, changing light fixtures, or installing a new backsplash. Stick on backsplashes are a fast and easy way to get a whole new look! You can also transform old cabinets by re-staining or painting the doors and drawer fronts. In just two days, your kitchen will feel fresh and new.
Refresh your bedroom
Your bedroom should be a sanctuary where you can relax, de-stress, and get a good night’s sleep. If your bedroom needs a facelift, why not paint an accent wall a relaxing colour like light blue or purple? Then add new curtains and update your lampshades! You can create a custom lampshade using your favourite fabric and decoupage or spray the inside of the shade with two coats of gold spray paint. The options are endless.
Update Your Entryway
Traditional entry closets or built-in shelving aren’t an option in your home? Don’t worry! You can achieve a look that’s equally stylish and storage-savvy by repurposing an old desk or table. All you need to do is sand it down and paint it whatever colour you like! Then place it beside your front door and hang a wall-mount shelf above. This creates extra storage space to keep keys, hats, and sunglasses within easy reach in a way that looks trendy and nice.
So there you have it! Four unique home improvement projects you can tackle in a weekend. We love that these DIY projects are fast and simple but have a massive impact on the look of your home. If you’re looking for more great home decor tips, don’t forget to read the SkyHomes blog.
