Home renovations happen almost every time in the US. Some homeowners like to renovate their house depending on the season, while others like to renovate their house whenever they have the budget for it. These renovations, which may be big or small, have the same underlying problem: it takes too much time.

Many home renovation projects could take a week or so, despite them being simple. Other projects could even take months. The most important part of the renovation is to efficiently manage your time so you’ll have more time sleeping comfortably in your home. Choosing the right projects you can do and planning ahead can certainly help you manage your time, and this list can help you with that. Here are some simple DIY home renovation projects that you can do over one weekend.

Making Pallet Wall

Many homeowners looking to renovate their homes think that wall projects should be left for the residential building contractor. That shouldn’t be the case! There are many simple ways you can renovate the walls in your house. One of them is making your pallet wall. Pallet walls are wall designs that are made from wood or lumber materials. The best part is that if you have any excess of those lying around from your last home renovation, you can use those for this project. You can even recycle some wood or lumber you might have around your house.

Additionally, you can ask any store for some pallets that they might no longer be using. You can get a low price for those or even get them for free. Pallet walls are fantastic to have in bedrooms, especially when you’re trying to nail that rustic design.

To make your pallet wall, it’s essential to remove whatever you have on the wall you are constructing it in; this includes paint. You want to keep the surface area of your wall as smooth as possible. Then it’s time to measure and cut your materials. If you have a pallet with you, you can deconstruct them into planks and nail them in. However, if you’re using lumber from a hardware store or if the pallet is too big for the wall, you can always cut them to smaller sizes. Then it’s just the matter of nailing them in. It’s as simple as that!

Painted Bathroom Tiles

Painting your bathroom tiles is another project you can easily do over the weekend. Painted bathroom tiles can deliver a more specific look you have in mind for your bathroom. This can significantly customize the design you have in mind, making your bathroom look more custom-made. Additionally, this can help you save some money from completely retiling your bathroom floor. You can’t find these kinds of tiles in any hardware store because you made them yourself!

To start, you must be aware of what kind of tile you have in your bathroom. Almost all popular tiles such as ceramic, quarry, and porcelain tiles can be painted on. But some tiles, such as those that have a glazed overcoat, can’t handle paint very well. With that in mind, it’s time to go and paint your tiles!

Having a particular design in mind can help you expedite this process because it all goes down in making your stencil. You can make your stencil out of any material. Having a 3d printer can certainly help you nail whatever stencil design you have in your mind. If not, you can opt for someone to do it for you. After that, you can just lay your stencil, trace it using your paint and brush (don’t use spray paint), and there you have it, your personalized bathroom tiles. It’s so simple that you can get it over within just one day.

Making Your Window Trim

Window trims tend to be the first things that depreciate in every house. Additionally, some windows don’t have trims at all, making them look bland and boring. Many homeowners think that you need a professional to help you make your window trim. That isn’t true at all. You can replace your window trim and even create your own!

You can start by measuring the sides of your window. This DIY project is much easier if you’re planning to do it over a rectangular-shaped window. It can still be done with windows with other shapes; you have to add more finesse to your work. After measuring, you can nail in your chosen material. If you have excess pallets from your DIY pallet wall, you can use that. After nailing in your trim, it’s all just a matter of painting it.
