<span>Weekly Tip for June 5:</span> Three Summer Renovation Projects You Can Finish in a Weekend
  • Opening Intro -

    Summer is a great time for special projects around the home.

    This can range from large projects like building decks, pools, and kitchen items, to smaller projects focused on home décor.

    Oftentimes, projects sit around for months because we think they’ll take too long to complete.


Today we’ll talk about three projects that you can complete in a weekend.

Paint Your Walls

One of the top home renovation projects for warm months is painting. It’s a great time for interior painting, as you can move bigger pieces of furniture outside with less chance of inclement weather.

Even if you’re planning on painting your whole house, it’s best to work one room at a time. This allows you to focus on each room as a complete entity, and also gives you the other rooms as space to move through and rearrange furniture.  If you have a weekend to set aside, you can decide to paint 1-2 certain rooms each day, or dedicate a weekend to each large section of your house.

One of the most important and often-overlooked choices you’ll make painting your home is the type of paint you choose. This goes way beyond colors and shades. This handy guide walks you through the different types of paint finishes and how to choose the right one based on the amount of use and abuse your walls receive.

Build a Wine Cellar

Are you a wine aficionado? Why not give wine a physical place in your home that matches the space it fills in your belly? The options for building a wine cellar are almost endless. You’ll want a cool space with consistent humidity. This is why wine cellars are traditionally underground. The less the temperature changes, the better.

When choosing materials for wine racks, you can buy stackable wine shelves, or build them yourself out of pallets or other found wood. Just be sure that the wood is heavy and thick enough to withstand the weight of wine bottles.

If you love wine but don’t plan on keeping more than 10-20 bottles at a time, you could build a tasting center area instead. This could also double as a brunch nook. A large unit with shelves, a table top, a rack for glasses, and drawers to keep corkscrews and other utensils will go a long way in impressing your guests. This way, you’ll be able to keep everything handy for your next impromptu movie night or wine and cheese party.

Create a Mural

A great way to keep your memories close is to create a mural of special photos. This can include family, friends, vacations, pets, and other special moments. If you have kids, this could be a great family project. Simply combine photos in a creative, appealing way, frame the mural, and you’re done!

If you want to go above and beyond, you can contact a large format printer and have them create custom wallpaper out of your family mural. This will give your afternoon project a lasting impact on the feel of your home.

These are just a couple of projects that can have a large impact on your home without months of construction or crafting. Do you have any weekend projects planned for this summer? Share in the comments!
