Projects To Complete This Weekend

When it comes to DIY, there are an endless number of projects you can do in your home. From larger upgrades to smaller details, a little bit of time and DIY expertise can go a long way.

If you have a free weekend, why not spend it on a few home improvements? There are many ways you can use your free time this weekend to spruce up your home. The hardest part is choosing what fun project to work on next! See a few DIY ideas to inspire your next home project.

 

1. Paint Your Flooring

Paint is an instant transformation for any room. But would you ever consider painting your flooring to change your look? Vinyl flooring can be painted and is cheaper than a complete flooring replacement. You can even paint in different patterns to give it a unique look. See this tutorial from Designer Trapped for more instructions on how you can complete this project.

 

2. Change A Window Treatment

If you’re looking to change the look of your room without making a permanent change, swapping your window treatments is a smart choice. For a custom look, a sewing machine may come in handy to hem the fabric into your own window covering yourself. The average cost to install window treatments is $161, but this largely depends on how many new treatments you’ll be adding in a room.

 

3. Paint Your Trim

If you change the look of the trim, it can change the entire look of the room. It’s a small detail in your room that you may not think about often. This is a great project for DIY beginners to tackle, as it can easily be done in a weekend and has simple instructions. See our tutorial for How To Paint Trim.

 

4. Recaulk The Bathtub

Not only does freshening up the caulk give your bathtub a clean look, but it also helps prevent mold and mildew buildup. Recaulking a bathtub is an easy project that those beginning with DIY can take on. Even better, this project can be done on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon!
