5 DIY Home Projects You Can Do in a Weekend

For most do-it-yourselfers, the weekend is prime time! For two whole days you can pour your energy into those home improvement projects that have been calling your name all week.

When you’re pressed for time but still want that Pinterest-worthy home, DIY home projects that can be finished in those precious weekend hours are priceless.

#1 Refinish Old Hardware

Refinishing your old hardware is one of the easiest ways to completely update a room with little to no effort. You can opt to simply replace your old hardware with new pieces—you’ll likely only need a screwdriver—or you can keep the old hardware and refinish it.

For this, disassemble each piece, making sure to note its placement on the cabinet, door, etc. Lay each piece out a tarp or newspaper in a well ventilated area, and spray with a metal paint like Rustoleom.

#2 Update Your Laundry Room

Busy families spend a ton of time doing laundry, so why not take the weekend to make your laundry room fresh and super functional.

Try changing out bulky cabinets in favor of open shelving, add decorative storage jars, and line the backs of your shelves with your favorite patterned wallpaper.

If your laundry room is large enough, add an organizer or a vanity for stylish storage and additional folding space.

#3 Give Your Bathroom a Facelift

One of the best ways to increase your home’s value and give yourself a treat is to invest in an easy bathroom update!

Replace old rugs and towels and add pictures to the wall. This is a great time to try your hand at refinishing your old hardware.

You can also remove and redo old caulk around your sink, bathtub, and shower. In a weekend, you may even have enough time to install updated light fixtures and frame your bathroom mirror.

#4 Repaint the Trim

Little does more to make a room feel fresher than a new coat of paint. While the weekend might not be long enough to repaint an entire room (depending on the size, of course), you definitely have enough time to give your trim a facelift.

And a quick painter’s tip? Ask the assistant in the paint department to mix up your semi-gloss with a just couple drops of black in the white paint.

It won’t be enough to tint the paint grey, but it will add just enough to make everyday dirt less noticeable.

#5 Add Crown Molding to a Room

Instantly up-level any room in your home by adding crown molding. This project requires little more than a trip to your local home improvement store, hammer, nails, and a step ladder or chair.

Make sure to measure your room and double check your measurements.

Your home improvement store should be able to cut your trim and miter the edges so everything fits together beautifully on your walls.
