If you enjoy being productive on the weekends, complete simple DIY home renovation projects to transform the look of your home. You don’t need a lot of experience to handle minor updates around the house. Here are a few weekend home improvement projects you can do yourself in your free time.
Easy Home Improvement Projects You Can Do This Weekend
Replace Cabinet Handles
It won’t take much time to replace the handles on your kitchen cabinets and drawers. Measure the current hardware to know what size to purchase. Find replacement knobs and drawer pulls at your local hardware store or online. You might choose to replace your outdated handles with modern, stainless steel versions. Perhaps you found attractive porcelain knobs that would perfectly complete your farmhouse kitchen. You’ll need a screwdriver and a few minutes to install the new pieces.
Create a Chalkboard Wall
If you’re a parent looking for a simple update for the kids, paint a chalkboard accent wall in your child’s bedroom. You’ll only need a few supplies: painter’s tape, chalkboard paint, and a quality paintbrush and roller. Your children will appreciate having a place to draw and make notes, and you can enjoy a quick and easy project. A chalkboard wall is also a great option for the kitchen. Keep track of chores and write your grocery list in a convenient location.
Paint a Piece of Furniture
Give an old piece of furniture a coat of paint. Sand the furniture to remove old paint or wood stain and to smooth the surface. You might choose to re-stain the piece or paint it in a new color. Add personality to your furniture and brighten your home with bold colors. Paint the furniture white for a sophisticated minimalistic look.
Weekend Home Improvement: Install a Backsplash
The backsplash protects your wall from splatters and water damage. In the kitchen, install a backsplash behind the stove or sink, or both. There are a wide variety of options in materials: glass, clay, metal, and ceramic tiles. You could upcycle wood from pallets or use metal ceiling tiles to customize your backsplash. Hardware stores and online shops sell stick-on tiles that install quickly and easily.
Replace the Showerhead
Replacing your bathroom showerhead is another simple project for the weekend. You can enjoy a luxurious, spa-like experience when you choose a waterfall showerhead. Modern versions save water while still providing great water pressure. Save money on the water bill and upgrade your shower.
DIY projects will make your home a more stylish, comfortable environment to spend time in. It’s worth tackling improvements that create a more attractive and functional home.
