So many homeowners don’t get any DIY work done because they focus on the big projects on their list. They look at the time it will take to get the work done, and think they are never going to be able to do anything to upgrade their home.
If you can’t get to any of the big projects, it is time to start looking at some of the quick DIYs you can in the time you have. With a little planning, you can complete any one of the following projects over the weekend.
Regrout Your Bathroom Floor
The tiles on your bathroom floor might still look good, but if the grout is old, it will have an impact on the way the room looks. Regrouting a bathroom floor is something you could do over the weekend, but you will need to be smart about how you work. You might think of your rotary tool as primarily a crafting tool, but it can save a lot of time on a project like this. You can cut hours off this project by using a rotary tool to remove the old grout.
Paint Your Shelves
Shelves can be useful for storage and organization, but they usually don’t add much to the style or décor of the home. If you have some plain, boring shelves in your house, consider giving them a coat of paint to make them a little more interesting. It can be a nice way to add color without having to paint an entire room. With the right shade, the shelves could do a lot to work with the color scheme of the rest of the room.
Refinish Your Front Door
Your front door greets every visitor. If the finish is old, it won’t make a good impression. With a little bit of work, you can refinish the front door and have it looking good as new. Even if the current finish still looks good, you could consider a new stain or color. It seems like a small change but it can do a lot to improve the look of your entryway.
Add a Medicine Cabinet in the Bathroom
If you only have a mirror hanging on the wall of your bathroom, you might get tired of having a cluttered sink area and having to use the back of the toilet as storage space. If your bathroom feels like a bit of a mess, maybe it is time to add a medicine cabinet. You will still have the mirror on the front and it will provide the storage you need to tidy your bathroom up.
DIYs don’t have to be extravagant to make a difference. With the right tools and an eye for detail, the weekend can offer more than enough time to complete projects that will have a major impact on the home. You don’t even have to keep the work inside the house; with the right lawn and garden equipment, the weekend can offer more than enough time to transform the outdoor spaces on your property.
