Summer Weekend Projects

Summer is a great time to tackle home projects that can be ready in time for the fall holiday season. Here are a few ideas to jump start your creativity and the best part is that they can be done with a short time frame .

Repaint the kitchen: Most kitchens have very little wall space which makes painting the kitchen a fairly quick project .. but with a big impact. Take inspiration from the materials in your kitchen when choosing a color. If the finishes are warm , go with a warm paint color and if the finishes are cool , try a soothing blue or silver grey

This Raindrop blue from Sherwin Williams compliments the white cabinets and adds a great bit of color to this gorgeous kitchen.

Create an Art Wall : Tired of blank walls ? Make a weekend date to arrange and hang a gallery wall filled with your favorite art pieces. Try rounding out your display with postcards and sentimental items ,photos and even a pretty piece of art paper will add personality.

Put Up Some Shelves : Shelves can add storage and space to display your treasures. If you like changing your decor with the seasons .. or just love changing your look with accessories often floating shelves in any room will give you a great area to change up the look of your room.

Floating shelves are especially great for small spaces to add display space.

Perk up the Porch : Setting out a fresh doormat , adding new house numbers and giving the porch a thorough cleaning will make your porch feel new and can be accomplished in just a few hours. If you would like to add to the change consider swapping out your indoor/outdoor pillows and add or replace an outdoor rug. Another big change you can make is with .. you guessed it ! Paint! Painting the front door or the celing of your porch can have a big impact on the space.
