When you’re getting bored on the weekends but you’re a homebody, then it’s helpful to dig into a few projects to stay busy. This keeps the mind occupied and provides a sense of progress. It’s also useful for the general upkeep of your home, otherwise, it won’t stay in good condition for very long.
Here are some projects
you can work on at the weekend.
Maintaining Your Fencing
The fencing around
your property or just the backyard is longer than you think. When you walk the
full length of it, it’ll change your impression of what might be needed to
When it comes to the
fence maintenance, it’s easiest with ornamental, chain link or vinyl fences. If
you own a fence made from cedar wood, then you have your work cut out for you. They
absorb water more and can rot faster too. This creates the need to replace
posts or slats sooner than you otherwise would. Priming and repainting the wood
to protect it helps, but cedarwood is also a favorite of backyard pests that
love to try their luck by gnawing away at it.

materials like vinyl, ornamental or wrought iron and how to care for them. They
each have their unique maintenance requirements to keep them in good shape.
A kitchen makeover
project is one where you’re not looking to put in a completely new kitchen, but
you still want to make some improvements.
and painting is a popular choice. It can drastically recover their original
appearance but with the option to completely change the color scheme that
dominates at least one kitchen wall. Along with the cabinets, the countertop is
an appealing replacement waiting to happen. That’s especially true when it’s
dated and if investing extra in a more attractive countertop material
like Quartz, Travertine, or marble doesn’t bother you.
Artwork or Framed Photos to the Walls
When you dislike bare
walls and would like to see either some artwork or framed photographs on them, use
a free weekend to put some thought into it.
If photographs are the
preferred choice, then do you have some photos of family or vacations that
you’d enjoy seeing put up? If seeing them regularly would remind you of fond
memories from past trips, then these are the best photos to select. Otherwise,
picking out some professional photography that you find beautiful or inspiring
is another good idea. Then choose frames that doesn’t detract too much
attention away from the details in the photos.
If you’re into artwork
and have the budget for it, then often less is more here. Picking a single
piece of artwork that can take pride of place is going to be more pleasing than
several that you’re not as fond of (but they fit into your budget). Look for local artists online with a great eye and affordable prices.
Choose a different
weekend for each project to space them out. This way, you’ll enjoy each one and
won’t feel rushed in any way.
