Tips for Weekend Wonder Projects
Sprucing up your home doesn’t have to mean spending huge amounts of time and money. In fact, there are many projects that you can complete in a weekend that will improve the look and feel of your home. With a little guidance and the right tools, you can easily get your home in top shape by Monday morning.
Commonly recognized as one of the most easy and cost-effective interior updates, painting is a weekend project that can completely transform the aesthetic of your home. When purchasing paint, a quality product will ensure your end results are beautiful. Low-quality, inexpensive paint will likely require a number of coats to get the coverage needed — resulting in more time and money spent. To avoid increased time and cost, use a premium line of paint like Pratt & Lambert’s Accolade, which guarantees excellent hide and outstanding durability.
Tired of the same old lamps sitting on your end tables, but don’t have the funds to revamp your lighting decor? A new lamp shade will completely change the look of any piece. You also can easily transform pieces by renewing the lamp bases; a quick walk down the spray paint aisle will show limitless possibilities of colors and finishes.
Adding trendy, fun accessories will give any room a new and more put-together look. Think vases and bowls, wall art and rugs. When adding accessories, look for colors that complement what is already in the room. Plants and flowers can also add energy and color, some with the bonus of a pleasant aroma.
One easy way to update furniture on a budget is to recover it or use slipcovers. Pre-made covers are available in a wide variety of fabrics and designs, or you can create a custom cover for your sofa or armchair.
