Six Simple Home Projects to Work On While Social Distancing

by racheal

 

With the current pandemic of COVID-19, many have more time on our hands than ever before while being at home. Although eating all of the quarantine snacks and watching every series Netflix has to offer may seem like a great idea, there may be a few other options to keep you occupied while you await further instruction. Tackling your “honey-do list” is a great idea when you’re in search of a project that will occupy your time and also add value to your home. The lines may be a little more bearable at your local hardware store compared to the grocery store right now and you can always order supplies online to be delivered right to your door. Just remember to sanitize anything that gets delivered and handle with care. Here are a few simple home projects to work on while you are practicing social distancing.

 

Add curb appeal

 

Start a small garden in your front yard, paint the steps of your porch, or lay down a brick border along your cement sidewalk or driveway. You can also add a coat of paint to your front door along with upgraded hardware to really make your home stand out to the naked eye.

 

Start a garden

 

Adding a garden of beautiful flowers is the perfect way to brighten your mood during these uncertain times as well as pass the time away. It’s a project that will always keep you busy with maintaining the life of plants and even some fruit and vegetables not to mention fewer trips to the grocery store. 

 

Upcycle old furniture

 

If you have been stashing away those garage sale finds or maybe have a few pieces around your home that need to be updated, now is the time to put in a little elbow grease. The possibilities are simply endless. You could add a coat of paint and new knobs to an old dresser or reupholster an antique accent chair. Revamping just a few pieces in your home can change the entire look of a room or two.

 

Install new house numbers

 

Add a little flair to your address numbers on your home by making them unique. Visitors won’t have any issue finding your home with custom house numbers that differ from your neighbors. You can choose to add color or maybe different style font or enlarge them.

 

 

Paint a room or add an accent wall

 

Social distancing in a home full of plain white walls can be a drag. Grab a bucket of paint and make it a family project that even the kids will enjoy. You can paint one wall to serve as an accent wall or an entire room with fun colors that will brighten up your day.

 

Patch up the drywall around your house

 

Between the family dog and lots of little ones running through the house, it’s safe to say that most homes have a few digs on the walls that tell a story. Take this time to patch up the drywall throughout the house so there are no more small holes and nicks exposed.

Break up the monotony and write a list of all of the things that need to be done around your home or list all of your dream projects and tackle them while you have a few extra moments of time. This is a great way to bond with your family members at home or to clear your mind and listen to your favorite music alone. Keeping yourself productive during this time is a great way to keep your mind at bay.
