1 Wintertime Weekend Warriors

>> Wednesday, October 10, 2012

 

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. It’s also a fantastic opportunity to cover up the eyesores lurking around your house with holiday pretties—think carpet stains and scratched walls.

Grab a paintbrush. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again—Alright, fine. I’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 install—like the one below from DIY Network—why not put a little lipstick on your kitchen before holiday guests arrive?

I spent some time getting stains out of our carpet last night after realizing just how horrible they looked when taking photos for a Tree Skirt DIY I have on my blog today. We have the nastiest rental carpet ever! I don't even know how it stains like it does because we never spill anything on it.
