This Valentine’s Day, take some time to build unity with your sweetheart by tackling a fun home project. Working together to create something new is a great way to spend the holiday. Check out some of these simple DIY projects that can be accomplished in one day.
1. Revamp the Bedroom
Take a look around your bedroom and tackle a project or two that will bring new life to your getaway spot.
Picture Collage- Use an old wooden shutter to create a picture collage of special moments from your relationship. Paint the shutter a complimenting color and arrange the pictures in a decorative way.
Wall Art- Glue small wood letters onto a blank canvas into phrases of love or endearment for your loved one. Spray the entire surface of the the canvas and letters with a light color, such as off white or yellow.
2. Ambient Lighting:
Hanging ambient light around your home can cast a romantic glow on your Valentine’s Day weekend.
LED Picture- paint a canvas board with a dark solid color. Use an ice pick to poke holes into the canvas in the shape of your desired design. With white LED lights, poke the bulbs through the holes.
Bulbs- Change the bulbs out in table lamps to red or blue to cast a beautiful shade onto the wall.
3. Spruce up the Entryway:
Make the front doorway of your love filled home inviting and completely stand out to the neighborhood.
Paint- Pick a bright color to paint your front door, such as red or blue. Paint crossbars white for an added dimension.
Plant Stand- If you have a covered entryway, paint a bookcase with the same paint as the door, and use for a potted flower and herb stand.
