Let’s face it… with everyone going back to school, our long Summer days are over. But busy days or not, the house still needs to be both presentable and welcoming. Here are some DIY decorating projects you can tackle in a weekend to keep up with the season, without losing precious time.
1. Log Entryway
Create a beautiful natural entryway display using some logs. Make sure to seal the wood with clear coat before use. The Balance shares how to find logs for display.
2. Apples Harvest
Spruce up your tired looking fruit bowl display by matching apples with dried wheat, pinecones, and other fall foliage. The burlap towel and sign pull the look together really nicely! Source.
3. Galvanized Bucket
Galvanized buckets can add a really beautiful touch to any display, be it on the porch or in the corner of a room. Change out the contents of the bucket to match the season or festivity. I had to do some searching to find my galvanized bucket, but local nurseries and some craft stores seemed to prove the most successful. Source.
4. Rock the Chalk
Rock the chalkboard display in nearly any room of your home. Chalkboards add a wonderful chic look and are so much fun to change out for specific holidays and gatherings. Find DIY chalkboard tutorials here. Image source.
5. Don’t Judge A Book
They’ve always said not to judge a book by it’s cover. I guess that’s especially true when you use antique books in a clever way! Get rid of your outdated knife block and keep your knife in this fantastic book display instead. You can handle this project in a matter of minutes! Idea seen from Town & Country Living.
6. No Fool Bar Stools
They may be just stools but don’t let that fool you into thinking they don’t need some TLC. Refinish your old bar stools or make your own new ones for a simple weekend decorating project. Ana White shares how she made these here.
7. Chalk Paint Furniture
One of my favorite DIY hobbies is repainting wood or furniture with chalk paint! It really does bring so much new life into older furniture that you’ve grown tired of. Forget buying totally new, expensive pieces and opt for this fun weekend project instead. Here’s a tutorial for repainting your kitchen table.
8. Create With Crate
Create new shelves with crate boxes for a fun weekend project. These can either be stacked shelves or wall shelves, but either way, the crate is great! Find DIY crate projects here.
9. Front Door
Repainting the front door can give your home a completely new look and feel. Be careful with color selection, but this is a really fun weekend project to add new personality to your home! Learn all the ins and outs of repainting your front door here.
One of my current favorite DIY finds is Wallpop wallpaper. It’s a new peel and stick wallpaper without all the wet sticky mess. I also love their designs from traditional wallpaper designs to wood and brick designs as well. Installing a Wallpop accent wall this weekend will be time very well spent!
