As you may know, this weekend is Memorial Day weekend. It is a time where people come together to remember those who have died serving our country and get a long weekend to reflect and spend time with loved ones.
Many people choose to go to the beach, set up a barbeque or just relax. However, it is also a great time to catch up on all of the projects you may not be able to get to in a normal weekend. If you are looking for something to fix up this weekend, we have many ideas and the tools you may need to get the job done right!
Make a Plan
The best way to start a weekend project is to have an idea of what you want to do before the weekend starts. If you are thinking of something very specific, make sure you know exactly how long it will take to set up, complete the task at hand, and clean up. If you do not account for that time, you could be frustrated and angry if it ends up taking longer than you had originally thought.
You should also make sure that you have a list of the tools you need so that if you need to go pick them up from the store or rental company, you can quickly and easily locate them.
The Easy Projects
Generally, when people think of home improvements, they think of large, expensive projects that will take a ton of time and effort. But you can’t underestimate the power of the little things you can do to make your day to day life better! For example, setting aside some time to do a deep clean of your house can make you feel like a million bucks.

The Kind-of Easy Projects
Mulching is a project that can be super easy if you want it to be. Choosing where you want to mulch, figuring out the amount of space you need to cover and how much mulch you need can save you a ton of trips of going back and forth to pick up the mulch. If you don’t want to buy mulch, you can always rent a wood chipper and chip any recently fallen trees in your area.
Painting the inside of your home can be a great project for a long weekend, especially if you want to cover many rooms. Painting the outside of your home is a little more tiring, but doing it now is a great alternative to waiting until the middle of the hot summer! Too lazy to paint the outside but still want to spruce up? Powerwashing your home can be a great alternative!
