By now most of us have thought of organizing everything in our house including the closet that houses all the things and the drawers we never want to open. Once you run out of things to do then what? Don’t sweat it, we’ve created a list of five projects that might not have crossed your mind yet!

Baseboards

Clean them. Go around the entire house and actually clean your baseboards room by room. A Magic Eraser goes a long way.

You can also freshen up your baseboards by painting them. Yes, go take a look at how beat up those get. We like to give our baseboards some love more often than you’d think, at least yearly. They get so much traction and make a major impact on your space.

 

Give Your Walls Some Love

Create a gallery wall of art, images and things that make you happy. Paint a new color in your space or change your ceiling color! We love a creative ceiling color or a completely cohesive color palette!

Kitchen Deep Clean

If you haven’t cleaned all the things in the house yet, start in your kitchen next. From every inch of the appliances to inside your cabinets, drawers and pantry, it all needs some love. Then move on to your cutting boards, knives and small appliances. It will completely change the vibe of the space.

Light Up Your Space

Switch out light bulbs– this is life changing you guys! Having the right light bulb in your light fixture changes everything. From the paint color to the flooring color to the overall vibe of your room. It’s all about the kelvins and lumens… feeling so lost with those words, we got you. Here’s how to pick the best lightbulb and a handy visual guide on determining the best bulb for you.

Change light fixtures – a new light fixture gives your room a whole new look and it really isn’t that challenging to do on your own.

Transform Your Living Space

You’re probably spending a lot of time, perhaps too much time, on that couch. Time to switch it up a bit. First, empty everything out and give it a deep clean all around. Then reposition the space and see if you can swap decor from other spaces in your home to create a completely new vibe. Even if it’s not forever, it will serve as a new space to enjoy for the coming weeks.
