7 Easy Home Makeover Projects to Try as the Weather Breaks

As the season changes and the weather breaks, you might find yourself looking for ways to give your home a makeover. The words “home improvement” can be daunting, but this list of easy DIY projects can help you transform your space in a matter of hours.

Give your front door a fresh coat of paint

This home improvement project is one of the easiest ways to add to your home’s curb appeal. Choose a paint rated for outdoor use, like this Modern Masters door paint, which is available at Ace Hardware. Simply tape off the edges of your door and get to work. In a few hours, your front door will have a brand-new look.

Tile over a boring feature

You likely have a fireplace that’s seen better days, a boring backsplash or another feature of your home that needs a little love. This stick-on tile offers a hassle-free way to change your space in just a few hours. There’s no grout or messy adhesive to deal with. Just peel off the backing and stick it to whatever surface you want to transform.

Build a modern serving tray for spring and summer

Concrete countertops, bars, tables and anything else concrete you can think of are in right now. This year, why not build your own concrete serving tray? I found a great DIY tutorial from Inspiration for Moms that will take only a few hours from start to finish. Make this project your own by picking out some unique tray handles that match your style.

A little pop to a plain wall

This is by far the easiest DIY project on this list, but it could add the most impact to your home’s interior. These state-inspired vinyl decals are an effortless way to add color and a focal point to an otherwise plain wall. Just peel and stick wherever you want.


Get your herb on

Add a little green to your kitchen with these farmhouse-style herb planters. Chalkboard paint can add an extra bit of practical charm if you’re feeling up to the task. Tape off a square or oval and apply a few coats for a long-lasting finish. Grab some chalk and write the names of your favorite herbs. There are plenty of ideas and templates out there for different lettering styles.

Create your outdoor oasis

String lights are an easy home improvement project to tackle when the weather breaks. You’ll need a few strands of lights and some wire from the hardware store to support the weight of the strands. In under an hour, you’ll have transformed your backyard space. Put a few chairs out and enjoy your handiwork after the sun has set.

Transform old jars and containers

Set your table for spring and summer with this DIY mercury glass container project from Home Depot. All you need are a few empty mason jars, old vases or containers you’re not using and a can of Rust-Oleum spray paint. Shake the can well before use and spray in nice, even strokes from left to right. Tip: Start spraying before you pass over the jar or container to create an even coat and prevent streaks.
