Home DIY Projects You Can Finish During Your Mini-Staycation

Summer is nearing its end, believe it or not, and the little ones are either back to school, or gearing up to go back to school.  If you have a couple of extra vacation days, why don’t you consider a couple of DIY projects and enjoy a mini staycation.

I’m not saying that binge-watching some of your favorite television shows wouldn’t be satisfying, but I know when you have a to-do list a mile long, the great feeling of having accomplished those nagging tasks or the joy of completing a project you’ve been dreaming about will be much more satisfying.

Suggested Program: Arizona’s Home Plus Program

Here are a few things you can do that actually make a big impact on the appearance of your home.

Painting Interior Trim

This is the kind of feature that is easy to overlook but done well, makes a huge impact.  Instead of taking days to paint an entire room, you can brighten it up just by introducing a new color with the trim.

Build a Backyard Fire Pit

S’mores in your backyard! In just a few hours you can build a backyard fire pit.  You can either create a DIY design or purchase a kit at a local home improvement store.

Resurfacing Your Driveway

If you have cracks, chipping or other wear and tear, it’s probably time to take action.  Here’s a project that will likely take you a few days – you’ll need to power wash the driveway first, fill any cracks and then add your sealant or resurfacer.

Organize the Garage

This one depends on how big and how messy your garage is; and something you might need to do a couple of times a year.  I know this firsthand!  By adding some pegboard, shelving and a ceiling hook or two, you can create extra space where you thought there was none.

Replacing Window Screens 

Window re-screening is an oddly expensive project.  Instead of hiring a company, buy and install the screening material yourself.  This project is for the fairly patient DIY’er, I’ve tried and have not been very successful, but that’s just me.
