Labor Day Weekend marks the end of summer and it is the perfect time to begin to prepare your home for the fall and winter seasons. Though it can be bittersweet saying goodbye to the summer, spending this extra weekend on Labor Day can save you troubles in the future.
It is also a great way to get the family or a group of friends together to work on a project before the business of school and work gets in the way.
Here are just a few project ideas to get you started.
Paint a Room
Now is the perfect time to freshen up how your home looks in color. Fall colors are some of the most vibrant you will find, and it is a fun way to change up your bathroom, bedroom, or kitchen. If you would rather focus on a smaller project, perhaps you can install a new wallpaper pattern or some wall decor, such as this Wallflower set.
Depending on how many people you have helping out, it may not be manageable to paint the whole house. Focusing on one room or section of the house this weekend can help be that jumpstart for later projects.
Update the Furniture
Sometimes all the home needs is a refresher of a few key items to make the whole place look new. This Tabulo Side Table is one such option that can be a great addition to any living room, bedroom, or office. Lighting is another major player in how your room will look. You can choose from a mood lighting like this Midsummer Light with its intricate designs, or a nice soft, white light such as this Mr. N LED Table Lamp
If you are not looking to shell out a lot of money at the moment, check your local secondhand store to see if there are any furniture pieces you can salvage and repair yourself. You can always spend this Labor Day Weekend on a DIY painting project to transform your existing furniture to a modern touch. There are also often discounts at this time, and you may find some cheap options for smaller furniture pieces to purchase.
Plant in the Yard
Take advantage of these fall colors and make sure that your garden or yard is ready for when the leaves do change and begin falling. Do some research and figure out what seasonal plants will work in your area, and go from there. Consider getting some new gardening tools such as this handy VERDO Watering Can or the GREENS Mister to get excited about the fall season.
