Looking for something to do this weekend?
Why not delve into a few DIY projects for around the house?
It doesn’t have to take you months on a project to update your home.
Instead, take baby steps.
11.Create an Instant Mudroom
Doing this is easier than you think. To create a mudroom you should first start with a bench because not only is it the focal point, but it’s the place that people will be slipping on and off their boots. Cubby holes are a great place for family members to stash their scarves and gloves. Also, add a boot tray. This will collect all the soggy drips and mud collected on shoes. After that, decorate with accessories to show off your own personal style.

10.Redo Your Front Door
Ever drive by those homes with the elaborately painted front door? That could be your home too! A fresh coat of paint does wonders for just about anything. Painting your front door and decorating with some accessories can change the look of your home in no time at all. It’s pretty simple fast fix!
8. Turn Old Chairs into a Bench
Repurpose old chairs into a bench. It’s really simple to do and yields a very unique contemporary look! All you need are three old chairs, a screwdriver, salvaged plank of wood, and some wood glue. Now that’s some Macguyver stuff right there.
7. Update Your Sink
Why not update your sink? You probably have the same one installed since you bought your house. An elegant faucet will create a focal point and take some emphasis off other areas of the sink.
6. Get “Built-In” Dining Room Cabinets
An unfinished wood corner cabinet saves money when a few deft decorating tricks are applied. Painted the same color as the dining room’s walls, it gives the impression that it was built in and original to the house.
These are all great ways to update the home. Some of these might even work for those who are apartment dwellers. I bet you’re just itching to see the rest. Read the top five on the Country Living blog!
